The Star of Chaos

A Daemon Prince is a daemon of great power that was once a mortal being but has been transfigured and ascended to daemonhood by one of the major Chaos Gods as a reward for their service as a mortal champion of Chaos. Daemon Princes are vast in stature, their gigantic frames twisted into shapes more pleasing to the masters that claim their allegiance for all eternity. Tirelessly they hunt the enemies of Chaos from one realm to another, for their meat is mortal flesh and their wine the stuff of souls.

Daemon Princes have chosen to trade their mortality for the god-like power and immortality of a creature of Chaos. A Daemon Prince is a living extension and manifestation of the force of Chaos. To ascend to the rank of Daemon Prince is the ultimate goal of the most powerful champions of Chaos, as it gives them immortality and power beyond the reckoning of mortals.

For the devotees of the Ruinous Powers, this is far from an impossible goal. Those few who climb the path of the champion to its apex are granted the prize of eternal life. Though thousands of lesser aspirants will fall by the wayside, a supremely talented devotee will clamber over mountains of the slain until they reach the pinnacle of their bloody craft.
