"They flee from the horrors I bring about; they fear the mutations I wreak on their flesh. Do they see beauty in the chaos I create? No. For Tzeentch has not opened their all-seeing eye."

- The Sacking of the Etiamnun Reclusiam (Unknown Date.M41) - Mordant Hex, Sorcerer Lord of the Six-Cursed, is sent by Ahriman to the barren, airless planet of Etiamnun III on the distant Eastern Fringe. The arrival of Thousand Sons drop-ships shatters the peace that had shrouded the world for millennia, though the small community of hermits gathered within the central monastery meets the arrival with quiet, contemplative acceptance. Hex's forces advance steadily through the mountain passes, directly towards the gates of the hermitage where he strikes the giant adamantium doors nine times. As the doors yawn open, many of those inside are wrenched into the cold vacuum of the planet's surface, while those who remain in sealed chambers are swiftly hunted down and massacred. Even facing death at the hands of the Six-Cursed, the inhabitants give little or no resistance. When all are dead, Hex descends into the heart of the mountain complex, to a long-forgotten xenos chamber buried under layers of ancient Imperial construction. Within the chamber is the prize for which Hex was sent -- an entrance to the Webway and the first step in Ahriman's plan to claim the secrets of the Aeldari.
