Each Aspect Shrine is led by an Exarch, an Eldar who has found his- or herself unable to leave the path of the warrior. These Exarchs are powerful warriors, doomed to either die on the battlefield, or to eventually be chosen to become the Avatar of Khaine. The first or founder of an Aspect Shrine is called Phoenix Lord. When one of the Aspect Warriors becomes an Exarch, they will don one of the ancient suits of armor that belong to that shrine, and according to legend this suit will bond to their flesh irreversibly. This means that the new warrior merges with all the previous Exarches of the suit, like a tiny version of the Infinity Circuit.
