Place in Society

The Grey Seers vie with the great Clans for seats on the Council of Thirteen. [4a] However they portray themselves to the other skaven as no more powerful than any of the other Lords of Decay, merely enacting the will of the Council. [4d]

As the prophets of the unified Horned Rat deity, they seek to enact his will whatever the cost (to other skaven) and often operate behind the scenes only venturing forth with at least a large bodyguard of albino Stormvermin. [4d]
