Sister Champion of Slaanesh

Miriael Sabathiel is a former Sister Superior of the Order of Our Martyred Lady who was corrupted by Slaanesh and is now xer champion. She is the only Sister the Sisters of Battle acknowledge that is corrupted by Chaos. Actually, she is the only Sister known to have turned to Chaos willingly, while her fellow traitor Sisters are implied to have been brainwashed by her. Then again, maybe that's a good thing for them to claim. Plus it's one of their few trump cards to pull against the Space Marines - they may not be as powerful as the Astartes, but at least they only lost Mirael and a few Missions instead of nine Legions numbering 10,000+ strong plus their uber-powerful Primarchs.

Overview[edit]

No one really knows why she turned to Slaanesh, probably Catholic school-girl syndrome. But what is known is that she's a stain on the honor of the Sororitas and a complete pain in the ass for anyone in her way. The first Mission sent after her were corrupted as mentioned before. Then after that, a Cannoness from Our Martyed Lady sought her out in order to redeem her.

She's dead now.

The most recent attempt to capture her was some arrogant Inquisitor wishing to hunt her down. The poor bastard was eventually captured by her and tortured to death in the bowels of a hive city. Think the torture scene from Reservoir Dogs but with more screaming and blood.

She's not that prominent in the fluff. Besides the above paragraphs, the only other things mentioned about Miriael is that she and her band of corrupted Sisters and various renegades once corrupted a shrine world. Plus her warband is powerful enough to at least challenge most of the Emperor's Children warbands. She also wants to be the very best, like no one ever was wishes to launch her own Black Crusade against the enemies of Slaanesh, spreading his ecstasy across the stars.

There's also a shocking absence of Rule 34 of her. But it's probably because she's an unknown and minor character. Plus it's mentioned that her armor is literally merged with her skin to provide extra protection. Unless it acts like a second skin or pumps her full of coke constantly (you never know with Chaos) it seems kind of ironic for a follower of Slaanesh to not be able to bump n' grind (then again how do you think she corrupted her fellow Sisters of Battle into serving Slaanesh? She's also got that long tongue... wink-wink). Upon further research, lore states the armor does act like a second skin, plus there might be a strategic hole under that loin-cloth.

Unfortunately, despite having the distinction of being the only known Chaos Sister of Battle, she has a hard time being taken seriously.
