Chosen of Abaddon
The Chosen of Abaddon are four powerful lieutenants under the patronage of Abaddon the Despoiler.
Each of the Chosen of Abaddon is a mighty Chaos Lord in his own right and in charge of his own forces. When brought together by their master, they fulfil specific tasks in major operations such as the Black Crusades. The various titles and duties each of them bears are somewhat aligned to one of the four Gods of Chaos.
Should one of the Chosen fall, either killed in battle or executed for failure, another Chaos Lord of equal strength will inevitably rise and take his place.
