Tehenhauin the Prophet of Sotek

Tehenhauin was a red creasted Skink from the Temple City of Chaqua. [1][2a]


The last of the first generation Slann passed on having inscribed the Great Plan onto gold tablets, one of these would become known as the Prophecy of Sotek and was kept in the Temple-city of Chaqua. It warned of the destruction of the Polar Warp Gates and even the invasion of Lustria by the Skaven. It further stated that the god Sotek would manifest, heralded in the sky by appearance in the sky of the forked serpent. Sotek would then prevail over the ratmen. The Slann of Chaqua considered that he was a Old One who would appear at the appointed time to save his followers. [2a]

When plagues began to propagate in their city, the same Slann examined the plaque at length, sending cohorts to capture skaven for sacrifice to attract the attention of the serpent god. However the plagues swept through the ranks of the Mage Piests following the ritual and those of other cities did not understand the omens that were appearing. [2a] Chaqua was decimated by plague and disease and Tehenhauin was hailed as a hero for his actions during the time of the Rat and The Serpent. He led the survivors of Chaqua from the city and recovered the Sacred plaques of Sotek. He then went on to become known as the Prophet of Sotek and lead the armies of the Lizardmen against the Skaven of Clan Pestilens.[1]
