Lokhust Lord

Lokhust Lords[5], or Destroyer Lords, are a variation of the Necron Lord found within Destroyer Cults[1].

History

Lokhust Lords are Necron Lords who have succumb to the Destroyer Cult and are overcome by nihilistic hatred[5]. Others are Lords who were damaged in the Great Sleep and have been placed upon a Destroyer Body.[1] Lokhust Lords are more machine-like than standard Necron Lords and are said to be the most maniacal of their kind, lacking any ability to emphatize with other creatures due to their cold, calculating nature. Even mighty Necron Overlords find Destroyer Lords somewhat disconcerting, believing they have too willingly embraced the machine and may turn on their own kind when the galaxy is rid of organic life. As a result, many are outcasts and pariahs in Necron society.[1]

In combat, it is said that the physical might of a Necron Lord equals the mightiest Overlords. Most favor Staffs of Light,[5], warscythes and voidblades.[1] They are a chilling sight on the battlefield and fill many with dread and horror. Age mars and chips at their once-perfectly silvered forms. To further unnerve the enemy, they direct their forces to attack in eerie silence and have glittering arcs of energy surrounding the soulless fires that burn in their empty eye sockets.[4] Lokhust Lords have improved self-repair capabilities, and if a foe manages to wound one they are horrified to find how rapidly it can recover.[5]
