Hag Queen.

Hag Queens are the High Priestesses of the Khainite cult.[1a]

Recruitment

Hag Queens are chosen from the most zealous of the covenite sisters by Morathi herself. The initiation rites that follow include a series of gory tests and blessings that culminate in the aspirant's immersion into a cauldron filled with shadow creatures from the nether-domains. Those that survive this final trial emerge more powerful than ever, able to channel Khaine's violent power.[1a]

Duties

Hag Queens leads their temples' rites and rituals, speaking words of power and divine incantations that allow Khaine's energies to flow with the spilling of blood. They are also responsible for the mixing of poisons and potions that will drive their fellow Khainites into a rapturous battle-rage.[1a]

But the most important duty of a Hag Queen is to prepare the Cauldrons of Blood for the rituals of rebirth. Such rituals are necessary for the covenite sisters to remain youthful, for they have used these rituals to extend their lives far beyond even the eldest of aelf-kind. Without their regular rejuvenation baths, many would age rapidly and die.[1a]
