A Kytan is a Daemon Engine of the Blood God Khorne, forged by the most malign Warpsmiths and Dark Magi as an act of devotion to the supreme lord of blood and battles. Kytan Daemon Engines stride the battlefields of the 41st Millennium eviscerating all who dare oppose them until their hides of brass and blackened iron are bathed in blood and hung with gore. Their thirst for battle is rarely quenched, and they will continue to slaughter foe after foe until the battlefield is slick with blood and little is left alive.
Standing as tall as a Cerastus Knight, an individual Kytan's upper torso echoes the design of the feared Lord of Skulls, and its powerful lower limbs give it both height and speed. Armed with a potent Kytan Gatling Cannon, its true weapon of choice is the Great Cleaver of Khorne, which it wields to deadly effect. When attacked, the Kytan is warded by daemonic rites and the powers of the Warp to resist damage inflicted upon it by those few lucky enough or skilled in the ways of fighting such an abomination to survive its initial assault.
The first of these Daemon Engines, it is claimed by certain suppressed texts in the keeping of the Inquisition, was created by the twisted master of the Hell-Forge of Sarum in the dark years of anarchy and war which followed the Horus Heresy, and it is a fragment of this ancient foe of Mankind's own forbidden name that the Kytan carry as their own. These striding, blood-reeking engines of glittering brass and sable darkness are utterly malevolent creations, forged by the most malign Warpsmiths and Dark Magi of the Dark Mechanicus as an act of prayer and supplication to the supreme lord of blood and battles as much as they are to sow havoc on the battlefield. The Kytan's profane design and ritually constructed body shares much of its dread form with the infamous Lord of Skulls, but whereas that war machine takes the form of a hybrid walker-tank behemoth, the Kytan is fully humanoid, echoing in form a titanic warrior, and capable of crossing the battlefield with frightening speed and fighting with a daemon's fury coupled with a durability and firepower akin to that of an Imperial Knight.
