Darkoath Warqueens are Darkoath leaders of entire Slaves to Darkness hordes that have conquered barbarians tribes that have proved her supremacy and right to rule by victory on the arena of the bloody skies, defeating a thousand challengers and monstrous behemoths to prove her might or as visionaries that do the will of the Dark Gods. While the Darkoath chieftains may adorn themselves with the skins and skulls of mythical beasts as well as humans they have killed in such battles, the title of queen or king is only granted when they have been matched against a powerful daemon and emerged triumphant. Battle, the Darkoath War queen fights with her axe glowing with a killing animus and the protective runes upon her shield blazing with power while an almost palpable dark aura crowns her.
Every Darkoath Warqueen is a gifted leader and a champion that has sworn dark oaths to their gods on the sacred oathstones of their tribes and staked their heart and soul on the outcome. In return their patron Chaos gods have gifted them a measure of divine power, not only to bolster their strength but also to give them a prescience on the intentions of dark gods. In addition to being stronger and swifter than any normal human, they have a natural charisma that allows a Warqueen to unite many tribes into a single unstoppable force when the gods demand it. 
Warqueens experience vivid dreams and mindblasting prophecies they claim are sent by the Chaos gods themselves. These visions often show potential futures that the Warqueen must bring about to maintain divine favour. On the eve of battle, a Darkoath Warqueen will be visited by a mind-numbingly stark vision of the future their patron gods require of them. A future that can only be made a reality by their actions, for which they will wage great wars that will destroy entire nations. 
A Warqueen is armed with a Rune-etched Axe and an Infernal Runeshield which is Inscribed with the runes of the barbarian tribes she has conquered and is blessed with daemonic power.
