Godbeasts are deific creatures who achieved godhood through the energies of the Mortal Realms. The most powerful are beyond the scope of mortal reckoning, known most often in legends and myths. But these powerful titans are very real and found all across the Mortal Realms, existing above the natural order of things.[3][6][11][26][27a]

Nature of Godbeasts

Evidence of these deific creatures can be found all across the Realms. Their bones are scattered across the Realm of Ghur, their likenesses can be found in temples, and the remains of some have even been turned into weapons. While many of the known Godbeasts are animalistic in appearance, not all of them are, such as Drakatoa the Living Avalanche.[26]

Some of these entities are tied closely to the energies of the Mortal Realms themselves, playing vital roles in how their Realms function. Such a connection exists between the Realm of Azyr and the near-omniscient Dracothion, who is an extension of the realm's power. Fangathrak holds within it the Arcway of the Realm of Ghur and Argentine, before being corrupted by Tzeentch, heated the metals of Anvrok so they could flow as rivers.[17a]

Other Godbeasts do not appear to be as intricately linked to the functions of the Realms and their natures are more inexplicable. Such is the case of Ghillnarad Dhor, Shurihuratha, and Chimerac.[17a]

Allegiances

Some of these entities have formed alliances with Sigmar's Pantheon of Order, the cosmic drake Dracothion is perhaps the most notable of these, while others have fell under the sway of Chaos. Some Shyishan Godbeasts were pressed into service by Nagash after he awoke in the Realm of Death.[29a] Many others remain unaligned, with their agendas being unknown to all save themselves.[26]

Known Godbeasts

Sigmar slaying Ymnog during the Age of Myth.

Zodiacal Godbeasts

The Zodiacal Godbeasts, or Zodiacal Pantheon, are primal manifestations of the Mortal Realms. Each appears to serve as a unique part of the zodiacal order of the Cosmos Arcane.[25a][40a]

Star Titans

The Star Titans are a collection of Godbeasts that are native to the Realm of Azyr. There are many Star Titans allied to Sigmar who stand watch over the Azyrite sides of Gates of Azyr.[36a][37a]

The known Star Titans are:

Notes

There are several creatures who have not been called Zodiac Godbeasts or synonyms, but might be as they share traits or have similar titles as them. The following is a speculative list of possible godbeasts:
