The Prophecy of Demise was revealed to Caledor Dragontamer as Aenarion drew Widowmaker, the Sword of Khaine. [1a]

And lo, he shall rule with a dark hand and his shadow shall touch upon every land. Steel will be his skin and fire will be his blood, in hatred will he conquer all before him. No blade forged of Man, Dwarf or Elf shall endure him fear. Though will it come to pass that the firstborn son of noble blood shall rise to power. The child will be learned in the darkest arts and he will raise an army of terrible beasts. Thus will the Dark King fall, slain by neither blade nor arrow but by a sorcerous power of darkest magic and so shall his body be consumed in the flames and for all eternity burn.[1a]

Malekith believes that this prophecy endangers him; as a consequence only Dark Elf women may become Sorceresses, joining the Dark Convents. Males are strongly discouraged to study the secrets of magic; those who nevertheless persist are despised ad regarded with fear and suspicion.[1a]
