The Lost Maiden - A tragic tale. . .
She was a beautiful young girl who’s life was unfortunately to become a plaything of the chaos gods. Born blind, she learned how to survive, being a resident of the far flung planet of Null, lying on the outer most reaches of known space. . .
The girl had the misfortune of wanting to travel amongst the stars, Null is a frozen planet and entirely hostile to live on and so it was with the mind of seeking a better way of life that the girl stowed away on a merchant vessel. . .
The vessel unshielded as it was fell pray to the creatures of the warp, the girl’s fate however was decided by the chaos god Slaanesh, the god saw something in her divine beauty, and decided to make her his plaything. . .
Knowing nothing of the universe apart from the planet Null, being as it is completely blank to the warp for reasons unknown, the girl had no concept of other such beings, thus it was that Slaanesh was able to take her and mould her in his image without any concept of this event being known to the girl. . .
Father Nurgle learned of this beautiful creature who now, albeit unknowingly served Slaanesh, with the knowledge of the girl, father Nurgle took it upon himself to steal the girl away from Slaanesh, jealous as he was of the girl as a plaything. . .
To deceive the girl, father Nurgle sent a plaguebearer to visit her, under the influence of a powerful glamour, the daemon appeared to her as an elderly woman, bearing a lantern, this she told the girl would light the way and allow her to see, even though she was blind. . .
All that the elderly woman asked of the girl was that she picked an almighty flower for her, knowing not of her transformation or the true identity of the old women, the girl reached out with a claw and picked the flower, in fact, she had just removed the head of the plaguebearer. . .
It was at this point that father Nurgle’s plan came into fruition, the girl picked up the lantern as promised by the elderly woman, even as she did, the corruption of father Nurgle started to spread through the lantern and through her claw arm that had just removed the plaguebearer’s head. . .
It is to this day, that she wanders on the frozen planet of Null anathema to daemons as it is, her own complete lack of awareness of her true nature shielding her from this, her lantern, cruel a bell of plagues in reality, guiding her through her dark world and lighting the way for this unfortunate puppet of the dark gods. . .
