A Khainite Shadowstalker.

Khainite Shadowstalkers are Morathi's trusted assassins and saboteurs. Chosen from the Daughters of Khaine, each is branded with the shademark, a sorcerous pact that grants supernatural abilities while binding their souls to the Shadow Queen’s eternal servitude. [1]


Each Shadowstalker has been hand-picked by Morathi to receive the mircath, the ‘shademark’, a brand woven from Ulguan sorcery.[3a] Binding their soul eternally to Morathi's service, but it that allows them to wield the night as a weapon and to travel the Umbral Web, a pattern of shadow magic that connects each of the Eight Realms; they can slip past almost any barrier both physical and magical. However, travelling these dark paths causes them to be more pallid and wraith-like with every journey, quickening their demise until they are nothing more but a living shadow trapped inside the Umbral Web.[3a] Some even forge pacts with shadow daemons, becoming one with the darkness and bleeding abyssal nothingness when cut, and gain the power to command the shadows of their target to throttle their owner or stab them in the back with blades formed from their own shadow. While becoming a Shadowstalker is considered a great honour, it also allows Morathi to dispose of Khainites she considers a potential threat.[1][2][3a]

Shadowstalkers are bound to Morathi more so than the rest of the cult of Khaine. Their position leaves little room for individuality among its member, leaving them isolated from the broader culture of the Sisterhood of Khaine. Despite this, the Khainite Shadowstalkers are the most devote of his followers, representing the peak of the khainite art of murder.[4a]
