Skink Starseers are the greatest Skink spellcasters and priests and are second to the Slann in arcane matters among the Seraphon.[1b][3b]

Organization

Most slann are served by several Skink Starseers.[2a] Skink Starseers are more attuned to the Slann than other Seraphon allowing them to understand a portion of the plan against the Chaos Gods. Unlike the Slann, Skin Starseers are more aware of the present, their minds unclouded by the fragmented memories of the aeons making them useful as guides that find missing pieces of the Seraphon's past and finding forgotten truths. Potent Starseers are even able to travel far from their masters while retaining a measure of their power, allowing them to lead Seraphon armies without the presence of Slann Starmasters.[1b]

The Skink Starseers are at the top of the skink priesthood's hierarchy and are held in awe by the Seraphon; even a Saurus will bow their heads in deference to a Starseer. Just as several Skink Starseers will serve a Slann Starmaster, several Skink Starpriests will serve a Starseer. The Starseers are generally tasked with ruling over sizeable districts within a temple-city or their own ziggurat-ships within the Seraphon fleets.[2a]

Magic

Skink Starseers are the most venerable of skink spellcasters. Even amongst the Stormhosts of Sigmar there are few that can match a Starseer's connection with the magic of Azyr.[2a]

Through a slight flexing of their will or complex star-rituals, a Starseer can divine meaning from a pattern of stars, anticipate stellar events with cosmic ramifications. This celestial blessing allows them to foresee the best path to bring about their enemy's downfall and the outcome of battles. However, they are not beyond fault and can sometimes misread the portents, helping their enemies instead.[2a][3a][3b]

These spellcasters know the Arcane Bolt, Mystic Shield, Curse of Fates and Control Fate spells. Additionally they can hurl astral bolts at their foes.[3a][3b]

Crafting

Skink Starseers can shape Celestite and Star-Stone from which Seraphon weapons are created. Bending these celestial materials to their will, they create palanquins that not only carry them to battle but also enhance their already formidable astromagical abilities.[1b]

Wargear

Starseers go into battle armed with Astromancer's Staves. These staves contain the power to alter the flow of time, often speeding the charges of their fellow Seraphon.[3a][3b]

They sit atop floating thrones of carved stone called Palanquin of Constellations. These not only are capable of flight, but they also incorporate seeing-stones and augurs that allows their riders to discern the future from the movement of the stars.[3a]
