Scythan

From Warhammer - The Old World - Lexicanum
Jump to: navigation, search

The Scythan are a tribe of Arabyan nomads who serve Tomb Prince Tutankhanut of Numas. [1a]

Appearance

They favour black robes and white horses. [1a]

History

They first came to the city to worship their god, but have recognised the ruling Prince as an avatar of their diety. Now they patrol his domain, seeking intruders and live in harmony with the dead. [1a]

Rituals

When a warrior of the tribe dies, his body is left out in the desert for the carrion to clean his bones. Then after forty days and nights it is taken to the tombs to be prepared and animated, continuing to serve the Prince in undeath. [1a]
