Karanak is a three headed Flesh Hound and the chosen hunter of Khorne. [1a]

Never sleeping, the hound stalks other deamons through the Throne Room of the Brass Citadel, searching for intruders or interlopers. [2a]


The Blood God unleashes him to search out those who have transgressed his warrior creed or otherwise insulted his immense pride. Each one of his heads is able to track his chosen prey in a different manner. The first head tracks through the physical realm, the second tracks through time, whilst the third is said to track them through the tangled trails of their own minds. [1a] [2a][3a]

Those who are hunted by Karanak must meet him in battle at some point for he is swift and tireless, never sleeping and anticipating all possible moves of his quarry swiftly. When the hunt is over he returns to his lord’s throne room, leaving the skull with Khorne and retreating to a corner to devour the rest of the corpse. [1a][2a]


It is known as the Blooded Slayer, Endless Hunter, Talon of the Skull Throne. [2a]
