Great Unclean One
|Attention, Adept of the LEXICANUM!|
Each appear much like their creator and god and also have similar personalities and although many are called Nurgle they have their own daemonic name. [2a]
They appear as large bloated creatures, oozing pus and revealing diseased organs through their ragged skin. They are often accompanied by Nurglings, who gaggle about the Great Unclean One's feet, nibbling on whatever carrion he may discard as he advances. [2a] Other Nurglings burst from its inards where they suck and chew on the juices within. The Daemon is despicably tough, from being both large in stature, as well as numb to pain through aeons of disease.
Great Unclean Ones spread pestilence and rot wherever they go, blistering the lungs of their foes and throwing disease about on a whim. These Greater Daemons are canny sorcerers and use dark magic to further spread the taint.
They are not however morbid - quite the opposite, each one being motivated by human like enthusiasm and often have a gregarious, even sentimental nature often refering to their followers and minions as their Children. [2a]
Some travel in great caravans full of pestilence and daemons bustling and full of plans. [2a]
