The Gore Lord is a Bloodthirster, a Greater Daemon of the Blood God Khorne who leads a mixed host of daemonic entities who serve both Khorne and Slaanesh in an unusual daemonic alliance that is known as the Brazen Host.
Little is known of the mighty Bloodthirster known as the Gore Lord in Imperial records. He is the master of a vast daemonic host, numbering in the thousands, known as the Brazen Host. Despite being primarily composed of daemons who serve the rival Chaos Gods of Khorne and Slaanesh, they have been bound together by the will of their brutal daemon lord and infernal pacts of unspeakable evil. To seek favour with the Blood God, they honour the Lord of War by seeking out the most worthy of opponents, attacking the most strongly defended locations. The Gore Lord has 100 Bloodcrushers known as the "Skull Riders," elite daemonic knights of Khorne, that serve as a vanguard force for the Brazen Host. The elite of this vanguard force are called the "Sons of Wrath." Capable of the most murderous charges, they trample the enemy underfoot in an unstoppable tide of daemonic fury. This elite force is sworn personally to the Gore Lord, as they are bound to him for eternity or until they are able to claim 100 billion souls. They care not either way, for the Blood God cares not from whence the blood flows. By continuing to serve the Gore Lord, the murderous carnage left in the wake of a Brazen Host attack is enough to slake their thirst for slaughter. The Brazen Host's coming and the carnage they would wreak in their wake was foretold during the middle years of the 34th Millennium by the scholar and psyker Cassalan Fayre.
