Executioners are the elite forces of the Dark Elves, raised by the Storm Priests and disciples of darkest pit. Trained as skilled assassins and warriors, they carry out the will of their Dark Elven Lords with unquestioning obedience, unencumbered by emotion. It is said by some, that the trail of darkness left in an Executioner's wake flows from the dark void where his heart should be.
Powerful enough in their own right, each Executioner wields a Sword of Life Stealing, which is bound to them by the blackest sorcery. Each strike from this blade drains the life energy from its hapless target and adds vitality to the wielder.
