Kabal of the Severed
The Severed left Commorragh hundreds of years ago when their Archon S'aronai Ariensis botched a coup. But the exact circumstances are known by no one save Ariensis himself. It is well known however that it cost Ariensis his left hand and his place in Commorragh. He took his Kabal into space and now defiantly refuses to regenerate his hand. His Kabalite Warriors, in a peculiar act of solidarity, often mutilate themselves in a similar manner by replacing their right hands with talons, blades, whips, augmetic claws or even more lethal prosthetics. They also adorn their brightly painted Raiders and Ravagers with chains of shriveled hands taken from Dark Eldar, Space Marine and Imperial Guardsman alike.
