Skaeth's Wild Hunt are a Sylvaneth warband whose members are worshippers of Kurnoth, the god of the hunt. They are wild and mercurial beings, representations of nature at it's most primal and aggressive. Skaeth and his warband seek to remove any that taint the natural order and to restore everything that was lost during the Age of Chaos, they can be truly merciless in pursuit of this goal. But nobility tempers them somewhat and they only actively hunt those who bring ruin.[1] The warband hunt as a unified team, displaying an almost preternatural instinct for one another's actions that allow them to act as one. Skaeth and his companions fight not individual glory, with all feeling the fierce exhilaration of victory in their kills.


Skaeth and his followers have plunged into the depths of Beastgrave upon what they believe may be their most important ever hunt. They seek to track down those beings infected by the Katophrane Curse and slay them to ensure they do not spread their corruption further. Alarielle has sent them visions of the horrors that will transpire should the curse break free of the mountain and spread into the wider realm; Skaeth has vowed upon the Spear of Kurnoth itself that he and his companions shall not let this grisly future come to pass, even if that leaves them trapped in an eternal battle to quarantine Beastgrave for evermore. More than this, though, Skaeth harbours the secret hope that, if his warband can fight their way to the very heart of Beastgrave, they may strike a blow that slays the mountain itself. It is unclear whether such a thing is even possible, but were the Wild Hunt to succeed in this aim they would remove a great and brooding darkness from the heartlands of Ghur.[2]

During their time in Beastgrave they have come to blows with both the Eyes of the Nine and the Wurmspat, slaying them temporarily before the Katophrane Curse resurrected them.[5a][5b]


Skaeth the Huntsman

Main article: Skaeth the Huntsman

Skaeth the Huntsman is the leader of the Wild Hunt. Described as an aelf-centaur, he is armed with the Javelin of the Hunt, which complement his likewise deadly hooves.[3] He may also use his shield to bash in and shatter the bones of his prey.[3b]

Althaen, Kurnothi Tracker

Althaen is a Kurnothi Tracker who has joined the Wild Hunt. Armed with a seeker bow and a keen eye, Althaen watches the enemy as the wild hunt charges, looking always for danger and for ways to exploit any weakness in her prey.[3] Her arrows fall swift and sharp as monsoon rains.[3e]

Karthaen, Huntcaller

{{Main|Karthaen, Huntcaller|| Karthaen is the Huntcaller. One the quarry has been sighted, is Karthaen's horn that calls the Wild Hunt.[3b] A blast horn imbues his allies with the strength of Kurnoth,[4] and conversely he may coalesce motes of life magic into barbed projectiles that fly towards his foes.[3f] It is Kaethaen's hope that Beastgrave itself will some day be scoured from the Mortal Realms.[3d]

Lighaen, Malkyn

Main article: Lighaen, Malkyn

Sheoch, Kurnothi Tracker

Sheoch runs swift and silent ahead of the hunt, listening for the sound of Kaethaen's wildcry horn to signal that is time to pounce.[3]
