Long ago, before the lands of Men had stretched as far south as Altdorf, before even the birth of the mortal Sigmar, there were many peoples and many rulers among them. A mortal man named Vhar'keth ruled over many of these people. His rule was cruel and ruthless.
On the dawn of a black day he commanded his people to march north. Tens of thousands marched for new lands of promise. Vhar'keth brought them far into the northern wastes, where they were slaughtered and consumed. So great was his ruthless cunning that not even the Lords of Change saw it. His power grew so great from the act that he rose to become a prince among daemons.
