God of Excess
Lord of Pleasure
|Followers||Hosts of Slaanesh|
Slaanesh is the most beautiful of all the Chaos Gods. He is known by many titles as the Dark Prince, the God of Excess and Lord of Pleasure. He himself is currently lost, his throne standing empty, as his minions anguish and the other powers of Chaos rejoices.[1a]
At the end of the World-That-Was, he consumed so many spirits that he was overwhelmed, left bloated and helpless. He withdrew into a hidden lair to digest this great meal, but he could not escape the plots of Tzeentch. By manipulating Khorne, Tyrion and Malerion, Tzeentch ensured that the newly born aelf gods would capture the Dark Prince.[1b]
Times of Tribulations
As he was being tortured, tiny wish of energy drawn from his essence, he was caught between crippling agony and blinding ecstasy and at the zenith of sensation he had visions of Nagash victory over the Mortal Realms. At first he smiled at the ancient spirits excess, feeling his needs, obsessions and megalomania that he could never escape, but then he realised that such victory would be his worst horror, sending him trashing in mad panic against his penumbral chains. Such future would be dull.
Slaanesh takes great pleasure in the torture that the Aelf Gods inflict upon him. His greatest horror is to find something dull, such as the potential future where Nagash won and converted the Mortal Realms without life or celebration.
