The Star of Chaos

Followers of Chaos Undivided venerate the force of Chaos itself, seeing the four major Chaos Gods as a single pantheon to be worshipped equally as different emanations of the same universal force.

Of all the worshippers of Chaos they follow Chaos in its purest form. They can interpret the meaning of Chaos in a variety of ways, including as a single god, worship the four major Chaos Gods equally, or favour one slightly over the others.

The Chaos Lords and Daemon Princes of Chaos Undivided are at an advantage in their ability to unite any of the forces of Chaos under their leadership, even if they would normally worship opposing gods like Khorne and Slaanesh, so the warbands of Chaos Undivided are always the most diverse.

The majority of the Traitor Legions worship Chaos Undivided, including the feared Black Legion of Abaddon the Despoiler, the greatest of the Chaos Champions and the Warmaster of Chaos, essentially the one mortal champion of all the Chaos Gods who possesses the authority to unite all the forces of Chaos under one banner and for one purpose.

Champions of the creed are branded with the Chaos Star, the Mark of Chaos Undivided, somewhere upon their bodies. A follower of Chaos Undivided may also honour the lesser daemonic entities of the Warp if they are likely to aid them.

Other devotees of Chaos view Chaos Undivided as a unified whole, with the various Ruinous Powers serving as the different aspects of a single god of Chaos. They may give their service to one Chaos God but are likely to never gain much favour with an individual power because of their veneration of Chaos as a whole.

Finally, others seek to use the power offered by Chaos as a means to their own ends. This is an often risky path and only two outcomes exist, the attainment of daemonhood or ultimate damnation as a Chaos Spawn and the devouring of one's soul by the Ruinous Powers.
