From Warhammer - Age of Sigmar - Lexicanum
Jump to: navigation, search

Shadowblades are acomplished killers that move through the realms like ghosts.[1]


Aelves have a long history of assassination, many finding grace in the art of the silent and swift kill. The Shadowblades are perhaps the culmination of these death artists and many speculate on their true nature. Some say they are from the Realm of Ulgu, others that they are divine gifts to Sigmar from another of his ancient pantheon.[1]

It is said that when Sigmar closed the Gates of Azyr during the Age of Chaos, he tasked the shadowblades with purging Azyrheim of corruption and the hidden cultists of the Chaos gods that his armies and priests could not find. For nearly a century did their blades cut away those who had fallen to the lure of the dark gods, from the humblest citizen to even a member of the Grand Conclave, leaving the corpses of the slain to hang at the crossroads of the grand districts.[1]

These Shadow walkers slit a few throats and you soil yourselves like children.

They are just charlatan sorcerers, things of flesh and blood that can be crushed, cut and killed. We will crush these assassins just as we...........
