The Blind King was a rogue Tech Priest of the Adeptus Mechanicus.[1]


The Bling King was a native of Mars who joined the ranks of the Missionary Order of the Collegia Titanica's Divisio Mandati.[3] He rose to the position of Archmagos of the Adeptus Mechanicus,[2] before concluding that humanity was an affront to the Omnissiah. He gathered so-called "Apostles" within the Mechanicus and launch the Occlusiad War (in 550.M37), a devastating conflict that lasted over a decade.[1]

There exist conflicting accounts of the Blind King's death. It is generally believed that he was killed when the Emperor Class Battleship Dominus Astra discovered his palace-warship in the Warp and destroyed it with lance fire. Without their leader his Apostles swiftly scattered and the Occlusiad War finally came to an end.[1] In contrast, the Dark Hunters believe that they killed the Blind King when he invaded their homeworld Phobian.[3]
