PostSubject: Cambion's    Thu Dec 03, 2015 6:27 pm

The Cambions came to being through a human Chaos Cult's experimentation with Daemonhost. The goal was to create a new race dedicated to the service of their dark masters. The next step for mankind. An easier and more controllable manifestation of of Chaos.

Essentially Daemonhosts where breed. The human seed saturated with the energy and life force of the Daemons. A Cambion is the ultimate amalgamation of man and Daemon. Depending on the alignment of the Daemon host parents will determine what structure or family the Cambion belongs. Khorne, Tzeentch, Nurgle or Slaanesh and thus set forth their roll in Cambion society.

The experiment was more than successful. A new species was born. Stronger than man yet not quiet as powerful as the daemonhost parents. But the desire was not quiet met. The Cambion's proved just as dangerous and independent in their motives than the cultists believed they would. Unable to be bound and forced into survive, it was quickly realized they maintained one massive flaw, or in the Cambion's view a merit. They maintained their grip on their humanity. Not born corrupted. Instead born with a seance of the warp and an understanding of the dangers that lays there in. The Cambion's rose up against their creators, devoured their parents and escaped into the world.

Over the next millenniums they grew into a culture to their own, though watered down through the generations, thier offspring still possessed the energies given to them by their daemonhost ancestors. Maintaining the human races ignorance to their presence became utmost. Fearing the genocide that would follow through fear and superstition. Though never forgetting what they ultimately are practice control, studying to control their natural and intense psyker gifts, unlike most of humanities psykers. They are the hunters of the real world, taking on Chaos where it crops up. Seeing themselves as tragic saviors for the unsuspected. Feeding off the energies of such creatures to sustain their power. In a way they have become the Sin Eaters.

And Chaos wants nothing more than to destroy them.
