The Godsworn Hunt are a warband whose Slaves to Darkness from the Darkoath tribe of the Black Fang led by the God-Speaker Theddra Skull-Scryer. She has lead them to the depths of Shadespire seeking worthy sacrifices to pledge to the Chaos Pantheon, and each of the warriors of the tribe has sworn a oath to not leave the city until they all have claimed the life of a Stormcast Eternal. Each of these hardened killers are a merciless and resourceful hunter who has earned their name through many deeds and fear nothing, for they have stared into the dark heart of chaos. Their bodies are covered in gruesome trophies and oath-stones.
The Tribe of the Black Fang are one of the countless tribes that, over the centuries, have pledged themselves to the Ruinous Powers. None amongst their number are more infamous than the shaman Theddra Skull-Scryer and the warband known as the Godsworn Hunt. All these warriors consider themselves to be Darkoath, swearing great pacts to the dark pantheon in return for reward. Yet the oath made by the Godsworn Hunt is particularly ambitious: they have sworn the Pact of Soul and Iron, offering the lives of Sigmar’s Stormcast Eternals in sacrifice to the gods.
In order to make good on her pact with the Dark Gods, Theddra has led the Godsworn Hunt into the depths of Shadespire. However, on occasion she is able to escape its boundaries for a time to fight alongside the Chaos Hordes of the Slaves to Darkness.
Theddra Skull-Scryer is the most infamous warrior of the Black Fang and the leader of the Godsworn Hunt. Ambitious and utterly ruthless, the war shaman plots to lead the Tribe of the Black Fang. To do so she will need to prove her might with a worthy sacrifice, in the form of [[Stormcast Eternals. Skull-Scryer’s command of magic is powerful and instinctive, and those assailed by her sorceries find their bodies become withered and emaciated as all vitality is drained from them. Such enforced weakness makes them easy prey for the remainder of the Godsworn Hunt.
Grundann Blood-Eye is a warrior of the Godsworn Hunt armed with heavy blades. Grundann lost his eye to a blow from an Orruk Warboss, but claimed both his deed-name and the brutish creature's war axe in the very same duel.
Shond Head-Claimer is a mountain of a man, quick to laugh and quicker still to strike the heads from those who test his patience. He lives for battle, blood-mead and glory. Shond dreads nothing, save that one day he will run out of worthy foes to slaughter.[5a]
