Back to Spunkybass Place
Not much is
known of this particular Thousand Sons detachment, or of its leader,
the mysterious Sorcerer Lord Amun Seth. Indeed, to date, the Ordo
Malleus has yet to obtain a vid-pic of the sorcerer.
Many theories exist
as to the origins of Amun Seth himself, but none can be confirmed.
There are those who theorize that Amun Seth was once a Thousand Sons
Librarian, and thus spared the curse of Ahriman. Some believe that the
sorcerer was once a Librarian of
the Dark Angels Legion, and turned against the Emperor during the Great
Heresy. However, the strangest and most likely theory is that Amun Seth
was not even human to begin with, but instead a Farseer of the xenos
Eldar. As legend goes, a Farseer from Ulthwe was ordered by the Seer
Council to infiltrate Ahriman's force and gather intelligence on its
progress in the webway. However, deception breeds deception, and the
great traitor sorcerer had already
known of the Eldar's devices, and played along to the xenos' plans, all
the while hatching a cunning plot of his own. The unfortunate Farseer
was eventually seduced by the powers of Tzeentch. In an elaborate
treachery that took place on his 999th birthday, the Farseer betrayed
999 of Ulthwe's best warriors by leading them into an ambush. None
survived. As reward, he was elevated to daemonhood and assumed the name
It is not known whether this tale bears any truth. What is for sure is
that the War Host has been plaguing the Imperium, as well as xenos
forces, for the past few centuries. The prowess of this War Host must
not be underestimated. During the 13th Black Crusade, this War Host
destroyed all opposition against it.

For reasons unknown, Lord Amun Seth has apparently succeeded in winning
the favor of this Lord of Change.
Scholars speculate that it is actually Lord Ka'Kaa, and not Amun Seth
who is in control of this traitor war host.
