The Witch Elves (Druhir: Maihd ) are the brides and priestesses of Khaine, Lord of Murder. They seek nothing more than to offer mighty sacrifices to their merciless deity, preferably by spilling their victim's blood amidst deadly combat.
They are organized in a warrior sisterhood.
- Young priestesses form warbands, each led by a Hag.
- The Hags are responsible to more experienced Death Hags.
- The Death Hags answer only to the Hag Queens.
Many of the younger Witch Elves form their own cults/warbands, renting their deadly services to ambitious Dreadlords intent on gathering armies.
