Wyches also known as Hekatarii are gladiatorial warriors of the Dark Eldar and where Lelith Hesperax comes from. They originate from the Wych cults and fight in arenas in duels with one another and with various captured aliens and beasts. Ruled over by their Succubi, Wyches are pumped full of Combat Drugs before sending them off in battle. In a sense, think of Wyches as the Dark Eldar equivalent of the Eldar Howling Banshees, but whereas the Banshees are your typical modestly dressed, grade A, model female college student who won't do anything degrading due to their chastity belts, the Wyches are stereotypical "sorostitute" who gives education and tradition the middle finger while trying to get as much sex and drugs as possible. Like every other Dark Eldar.
Wyches are led by a Hekatrix. These elite wyches, from time to time, form a clique of murderesses known as Bloodbrides. These Bloodbrides are under command of Syren who answers only to the high command of their Wych cult. Bloodbrides are known to have fierce rivalries between each other but in time of raids they unite their bloodthirsty powers on battlefield. As Bloodbrides are the elite among Wyches they are granted a greater number of special weapons than "normal" Wyches. The newest inductees of a Wych cult and the freshest babes on the battlefields are called Debutantes who are often eager to make their mark on looking as Hawt and deadly as possible. They are usually bound to an archon; and there have been instances of wyches becoming archons themselves (especially defeating female archons where it seems to have been the usual practice of that kabal, but keep in mind this is the general idea of career advancement in deldar society.)
Wyches are close combat specialists and often carry very little if nothing in the battlefield, relying on pure speed, agility and shall we say....distractions as much as possible. Seriously when we meant they wear g-strings, bikinis and high thong leotards in battle, we ain't joking. Other than Daemonettes, Sisters*BLAM* and Howling Banshees the Wyches are one of the most fappable units in 40k due to their obscene and revealing outfits and the tendencies that most elegan/tg/entlmen often drool when fantasizing of near naked chicks running in the battlefield with their tits hanging out.
Seriously the outfits kind of work even in fluff despite the impracticality of leaving your bodies exposed.*BLAM* Heresy! Don't be surprised where your entire Imperial Guard regiment have their jaws hitting the floor with their boners penetrating their Flak armor when these chicks go into war. Heck even your purity approved Eldar aren't invulnerable to naked Eldar chicks frolicking in the battlefield (Well the men at least) with your local Banshee and Farseer face palming either due to Fail or Jealousy.
Wyches are typically armed with one close combat weapon and a short ranged weapon. Usually knives and short swords are standard issue but they could also come equipped with Razorflails, Shardnet, Impaler and Hydra Gauntlets.

Contrary to Imperial propaganda, this is how most Guardsmen wish they want to die. In between the thighs of a half naked hot alien chick. Hey, at there's nothing extra there. Just sayin'.
After Lelith Hesperax joined the Ynnari and their relatively close relations with Papa Smurf. Imperial Guard Regiments were suddenly reported showing a new sense of zeal.
On their off-hours, Wyches can prove to be surprising house wives.
The Dark Eldar are known to wear the skins of their victims. Felinids included.
Macha has clearly become truly desperate to engage in Bondage.
