Nightshrieker

From Age of Sigmar - Lexicanum
Jump to: navigation, search

Nightshriekers are bat-like descendants of the Godbeast Morbheg.

During the Ages, Morbheg sired many bat-like beasts. While these beasts once instilled some form of awe and respect, they have since fallen far. As the megafauna they feasted on got more and more rare, so too did the line of Morbheg decline. The reanimated corpses of the largest of these scions are now known as Terrorgheists. Their smaller cousins retreated deep into sunken caves or crumpling ruins, barely surviving by scavenging corpses and carrion. Now foul and necrotic in appearance, these Nightshriekers have bonded with the ghoulish inhabitants of the Flesh-Eater Courts. Sharing both habit and habitat, both have some form of instinctive understanding[1a]

Morbheg Knights

Once they encountered the Flesh-Eater Courts, Nightshriekers were forced to feed on vampiric Abhorrant blood, becoming creatures stuck in a limbo between mortality and undeath.[1a]

Many Abhorrant monarchs keep whole menageries of these creatures in their hideouts. Sometimes a ghoul dares to approach them, often they end up as their next meal but sometimes the beast and the ghoul bond. From this bond come ghoulish cavalrymen known as Morbheg Knights.[1a]

These knights are potent weapons on the battlefield. While their ragged wings dont provide enough lift to carry them across the skies, their powerful hind legs allows them to leap across the battlefield and ram into unsuspecting victims. Similar to other children of Morbheg, the Nightshriekers have the ability to emitte a terrifying screams, strong enough to kill a victim outright.[1a]
