Synessa, the Voice of Slaanesh is one of the twin-gods birthed from the protean entity known as the Newborn alongside its twin; Dexcessa, the Talon of Slaanesh.[2][3a]


Age of Sigmar

In a bid to reach the echleons of godhood, the Khainate Grand Matriarch and High Oracle Morathi journeyed to the Realm of Shadow in order to enact a blood ritual to steal the powers of the Chaos God Slaanesh, who was imprisoned in Uhl-Gysh, the place between shadow and light.[1a] Feeding the God of Excess with the blood and souls of the followers of Khorne, Nurgle, and Tzeentch, Morathi glutted Slaanesh and opened a connection between the deity and the Máthcoir, the grand central cauldron in Hagg Narr, and used the powers of the Ocarian Lantern to draw whisps of soul matter from the Dark Prince himself.[1a] ​As she was absorbing the king-souls from Slaanesh, one resistant and struck her, the act cleaving off a portion of Slaanesh's power and forming a protean entity known as the Newborn.[1a][1b].

Screaming across the sky, the Newborn left a gaping trail of brilliant iridescence, transforming the land near its path before landing in a cradle of shadowed earth.[1b] Thousands of Hedonites followed the Newborn to its resting place to witness its birthing of two massive Daemons, one of them becoming Synessa, the Voice of Slaanesh.[2]


Synessa's power of enthralling is so strong that even a glance can leave their foes enthralled and Daemons of Slaanesh follow their every word. Their wings, called mesmerising lepidoptera, not only allow them to fight but also creates a hypnotic effect that distracts their foes and their words can reach the ear of anyone on the battlefield.[4a]

In close combat they can use their impaling talons to strike down their foes.[4a]


Synessa is a consummate wizard and derives pleasure from the manipulation of the mind.[2] As a wizard they know the Arcane Bolt, Mystic Shield and Whispers of Doubt, as well as all the spells of the Lore of Slaanesh, Lore of Pain and Pleasure and the Forbidden Sorceries of Slaanesh.[4a]

As the Voice of Slaanesh they can ignore distance limitations of the spells Whispers of Doubt and Pavane of Slaanesh to affect anybody they can see.[4a]


Synessa wields the Staff of Slaanesh that drives those struck by its bolts of energy to self-mutilate and tear their own flesh with pure ectasy.[4a]
