Requiem for a Sector
The Slaugth are a terrible and monstrous race of beings who are known as “maggot men”, “dream eaters” and as the “carrion lords” who’s bodies as well as their minds are completely alien to humanity. Their roughly humanoid shaped form stands roughly as large as 3 meters in height with the capacity to manipulate their forms. This vaguely human-like creature has hundreds of writhing maggot-like worms covered in a vicious necrotic mucus. These traits allow them to stretch and reform their bodies at will whilst allowing them to move with on obscene boneless fluidity along with the capacity to regenerate at startling speed. Slaugth are impervious to age, disease, poison and are vulnerable to the most extreme of injuries. Their alien minds are coldly savage and are psychic voids filled with a monstrous hunger for the dead. They are able to produce necrotic fluids from their body tissues with this bile consisting of flesh-eating bacteria and molecular acids able to liquefy flesh or even burn through metal. The strange technology of the Slaugth combined with their unusual appearance has led many to mistakenly believe them to be daemonic beings. They are one of the xenos that conceal their true selves and walk amongst Mankind as if they were Humans themselves through which they are able to achieve their feats of deception.
