Daemonettes[5a]

Daemonettes are Lesser Daemons of Slaanesh. They are the most numerous of his daemonic minions and serve him as handmaidens, warriors and agents.[1] [2]

Overview

Daemonettes appear as both beautiful and repulsive to those who look upon them. Their bewitching opal eyes and enchanting aura veil their androgynous features and grotesque claws, revealing an alluring appearance the beholder will always consider the epitome of beauty. Depending on the situation Daemonettes can be gracious and swift warriors, using their razor-sharp claws when violent force is necessary, or subtle messengers and seducers who will haunt the dreams and nightmares of their victims[7]. Some have wings which allow them to fly[6a], while heavily armored Daemonettes have gauntleted claws that can fire pulses of daemonfire and long mortal-skinned gonfalons flowing from their spinal protrusions[6b]. Others are armed with an Instrument of Chaos or Rapturous Standard[7]. Champions of Daemonettes meanwhile, are called Alluresses.[4][5]

Those Daemonettes that excel in their servitude may serve the Lord of Pleasure personally as courtesans on his throne. The more privileged a Daemonette is, the closer she is allowed to approach the throne.[2]
