Death Cult Assassin

Soon you'll learn this is the most terrifying thing in the universe.
Human Death Cults are found on worlds throughout the Imperium. A large proportion of these cults worship the Blood God Khorne, offering their gruesome kills to him; many, however, are in fact extreme sects of the Imperial Cult, sacrificing the enemies of the Emperor in return for his continuous self-sacrifice for humanity.

Silent and deadly, the Death Cult Assassins are the cut-throat members of these shadowy sects, highly skilled with blades of all shapes and sizes, they perfect their art of killing to a religious standard, with each type of wound caused being significant in some spiritual way. As such, they will often stalk their potential target for a long time, carefully judging the worthiness of their sacrifice and planning the perfect kill, before bursting from the shadows like a coiled snake and butchering the target in a fountain of blood. Following this they tend to at least partially consume the remains, before offering what's left to the Emperor. Leaving the bones of their defeated foes on the altars of the Cathedrals of the Ecclesiarchy is not unheard of, and generally a blind eye is turned to this potentially heretical behaviour as it is done in ultimate loyalty to the Emperor.

Given their impressive talents, Death Cult Assassins can end up being contracted by official organisations within the Imperium, be they the local planetary government, or Inquisitors requiring a bodyguard (or requiring someone dead). After a long and loyal service to an Imperial entity, especially skilled Death Cult Assassins may even be sent to the Officio Assassinorum and trained to become proper Imperial Assassins, which are many times more deadly. However, despite the obvious boons an Imperial Death Cult can provide to the local Imperial population, Khornate Death Cults present a dangerous prospect, and are to be terminated without mercy if discovered, so this naturally gives any Death Cult a heavy air of suspicion. Nevertheless, loyal Death Cult Assassins in the employ of the Imperium can make a big difference, infiltrating enemy fortresses and murdering their commanders quickly and silently.
