- "Few are the select chosen that survive the reveries of the Death Night. Fewer still are those who leave the Cauldron with eyes of molten brass, burning with the hatred of our Dark god. These true chosen are taken into the cult and trained in the most secret of rites, emerging as masters of death second only to Khaine himself..."
- —The Disciples of Khaine.
Disciples of Khaine are deadly Priest-warriors dedicated to the god of murder.
The devotees of this unique cult can trace their origins to the Dark Elf city of Clar Karond. According to legend, the Noble houses of this decadent city would offer members of their own families to the blood-slicked alters of Khaine in hopes of garnering their war god's favour before setting out to sea on raids. Some of these would-be victims were set aside to learn the arts of assassination, while others were singled out for enigmatic purposes known only to the Hag Queens of the Witch Elf temples.
Disciples have been marked by the touch of Khaine, the bloody handed god. They carry out Khaine's will whenever they enter into a fight, reaping the soul essence of their opponents with wicked ritual swords and chalices. Trained in the dark rites of Khaine, a Disciple can steal the strength of a soul with just a nip of their razor-sharp blades. With the essence of souls taken from their opponents, the Disciple can enact dark rites, calling upon Khaine’s favour to bless Druchii warriors.
Disciples are capable of both healing and resurrecting their allies, as well as inflicting curses on their enemies. Their place is in the front lines of battle, where they rend their enemies with sharp swords and use Soul Leeching to drain their enemies and power their spells. By getting close to the enemy, they can use their opponents' strengths against them, and they can prove to be the catalyst to change the direction of a fight.
