Kabal of the Wraithkind
Before their transformation, the Kabal of the Wraithkind was a powerful Kabal that ruled the Pleasure City of Aur-Ilithain. However, their Archon Tliensic D'raque announced his plan to break the kabal away from Vect's rule and then proceeded to destroy the only hyperspatial bridge that lead from Commorragh to the Cyclops Gate of Aur-Ilithain.
The next night Vect launched his attack as six secret portals suddenly opened across the city, allowing thousands of shadow-creatures to pour in. Before the night was over, the shadow-creatures had forever changed the inhabitants of the city by plunging it into a half-real state slightly out of phase with the rest of the Webway. Now, the Kabal of the Wraithkind can only feed when they leave the webway and enter Realspace, where they vent their extreme frustrations upon the lesser races.
In 995.M41 the Kabal of the Wraithkind, along with the Cult of the Flayed Hand, saved the Craftworld of Iyanden when it was about to be overrun by Waaagh! Rekkfist. Iyanden, unable to stop the invasion before it reached the surface of their Craftworld, was forced to awaken even more Wraith-constructs in order to hold back the invasion. As events become desperate, a Webway portal at the rear of the Craftworld activated and members of the Kabal of the Wraithkind and the Cult of the Flayed Hand emerged to aid in slaying the Orks. After saving Iyanden, the Dark Eldar were questioned by Iyanden's Council of Seers as to why they intervened, and they replied simply that they gain extreme entertainment from watching Iyanden's angst-ridden use of necromancy.
