Description

Kairos Fateweaver, also known as the Oracle of Tzeentch, the Keeper of the Scrolls of Destiny and even the Mocking Warden, is perhaps the most powerful of his kind due to the actions of his master, the Changer, the Demon who now knows all spells in existence and every action before it is conceived. Kairos has fought his way back from the Well of Eternity to its depths after countless years and has been able to see things even Tzeentch cannot.

His right head sees possible futures as bright as day. No plan remains hidden from his eyes and the infinite possibilities of tomorrow crystallize into irrefutable facts. Kairos' left head sees the past without the petty nuances of perspective and bias. Past and future pulse through a body shriveled and twisted from its passage through the well. As valuable as this vision is, it comes at a high cost. Both heads of Kairos are blind to the present; he cannot see time as it passes - only events that are coming or whose time has already expired.

Kairo's blindness to the present makes him vulnerable to physical attacks - the future doesn't reveal itself fast enough for a back-and-forth to be predicted. Nonetheless, Kairos' unique vision allows him to stay one step ahead of his opponents by pitting various attackers against each other in cross-timestream duels. In the arena of magic, Kairos is unstoppable. He knows every spell, sigil, sign, and brand of mystical power there is; although even he cannot put them all together without a minimum of preparation. This ability makes him Tzeentch's preferred agent. When Fateweaver leaves the Impossible Fortress, she is always in the service of a terrifying task, be it the recovery of a magical artifact, the fatal destruction of an army, or some other indescribable purpose.

Even Tzeentch dares not enter the Well of Eternity, the vast vessel of knowledge at the heart of the Impossible Keep. The Great Wizard, powerful as he is, cannot be sure of his survival in the inky currents of infinity. Still, the Well of Eternity holds great sway in Tzeentch's mind, for it is the only riddle he cannot solve and the only mystery he cannot know - a challenge almost painful in its intensity. To understand, Tzeentch hurled Kairos, a Lord of Change known to mortals as Fateweaver, into the ominous depths of the Well. While the Great Wizard was unwilling to risk his very existence in such a game, he had no such qualms about risking one of his servants in such a manner.

Kairos now sits to Tzeentch's right, moving the Stygian depths of the well as he whispers aloud the secrets only he can see. Nine times nine Lords of Change transcribe these insights with feathers drawn from their own plumage and colored with Tzeentch's blood. Each scribe jealously guards the secrets he hears - every facet of eternity is a powerful tool in the endless intrigue and collusion of Tzeentch's court. For his part, Tzeentch cares little for the intrigues of his minions, for he knows everything they know. Each secret transcribed by a Lord of Change becomes part of Tzeentch forever, and his understanding of eternity grows ever closer.

Kairos Fateweaver had been one of the Great Demons that challenged Aenarion during the creation of the Great Vortex. He fell when Aenarion rammed the Sword of Khaine into his head, but not before destroying the multitude of enchantments in the Phoenix King's dragon armor.

The year 2520 IC, as mortals estimate the time, was when Tzeentch dispatched Kairos Fateweaver to steal the twelve enchanted artifacts once possessed by Gilles le Breton's companions. This goal was so important to Tzeentch that he sent most of his armies to the mortal plane. Thus began Bretonnia's Year of Sorrows, during which the tombs of the Companions were ransacked, nearby cities destroyed, and untold thousands of Bretonians - born high and low - met their deaths at the tentacles of Tzeentchian demons. Castles offered no protection, for their rough stones were easily brought down by the sorcery of the Pink Horrors or transformed by the Flamer's warp fires. Refuge could only be found at Holy Grails where the power of the Lady was still strong. Worse, with each artifact recovered, Doomweaver's demons grew more powerful. In the early battles for Montfort and Quenelles, the spears and bravery of the Breton knights cost the demonic hosts dear. With eight artifacts confiscated, only the boldest dukes would even consider taking the field. In the twelfth month, with only one artifact outside of Fateweaver's clutches, only King Louen risked his arm - and he lost far more battles than he won.

The last battle of the Year of Sorrows was the Siege of Mousillon, for it was in this city that the last artifact lay. At the height of the siege, the Breton armies made one last sally against their tormentors. Help came from a most unlikely source. Nurgle had long liked Mousillon, for it had been the breeding ground for many of his favorite plagues. Unable to bear the thought of the city being wiped out by the servants of the hated Tzeentch, he unleashed his own armies.

Unaware of the larger battle, the Bretons gave no quarter that day. All they saw was an army of demons fighting among themselves, slaughtering everything they could reach their spears. Ku'gath Plaguefather beat Kairos Fateweaver to feathered doom, only to find himself pierced by the points of a dozen blessed lances. With the annihilation of their leaders, both Daemon armies vanished - no doubt to continue the battle on more familiar ground - leaving behind only their battle-ravaged casualties and the very items Fateweaver had come to steal.
