Daemon Princes are Chaos champions that have proved themselves worthy enough to ascend to daemonhood and is the ultimate goal of all the Slaves to Darkness that walk the Path to Glory. They have committed many heinous acts during their life time, often those that resonate with and empower their patrons and have been gifted with the reward of being reborn as a Daemon Prince.[1][2a]

Greater daemons may treat Daemon Princes with contempt as some see them as being tainted by their mortal origins but the Slaves to Darkness venerate these beings as proof of the reward for their devotion. In battle they display to the gift of daemonhood to their followers, using the sheer physical power combined with hellish powers they can call upon to swiftly overpower the enemy. [2a]

As they are born of the Chaos Gods, and know much of their true nature, these beings rarely see any reason to dissuade tribes of the Slaves to Darkness from their existing beliefs since the idolatrous nature of such worship often results in the Daemon Prince being heralded as a god that walks. Almost all Daemon Princes are incredibly proud, a side effect of having achieved their greatest ambition, and often surround themselves with the most powerful warriors they can find, forming a loathsome court over which the Daemon Prince reigns as an infernal monarch.[2a]
