Aetaos'rau'keres, also known as the Slayer of Souls is a Lord of Change, a Greater Daemon of Tzeentch.

Reclusive and secretive, Aetaos'rau'keres is dreaded and feared among his fellow Daemons. An insane demigod who gradually rose to the rank of Lord of Change, he is the harbinger that heralds the end of sanity and life on any planet to which he is summoned. Though known by many names, the true history of this creature is not even known to the arcane scholars of the Ordo Malleus. To keep his true nature and history a secret, the Lord of Change hunts down any who may discover the truth. It is said that only Tzeentch himself knows Aetaos'rau'keres's true nature and origins.[1a]

What is known however is that Aetaos'rau'keres is not entirely the master of his own fate. Tzeentch has fettered him in layer upon layer of wards and incantations, shattering his reason and driving the creature to the depths of insanity and bitterness and the Daemon Lord vents his wrath upon any world to which he is summoned. As a result only the most apocalyptic Chaos Cults dare summon Aetaos'rau'keres, for doing so brings forth the complete genocide of a world.[1a]
