The Battle of Castobel
The Ravagers are a Renegade Warband comprised of splinters of other warbands from around the Jericho Reach, and the Hadex Anomaly. They have harsh initiation routines to ensure the loyalty and devotion to Ulthor the Rampant, the leader of the Ravagers.
The Rituals are watched carefully by the Soul Reapers, former chaplains turned to selfproclaimed ministers of the foul and heretical lore of Khorne. These encompass drinking the blood of their foes and flaying them after death to turn their defeated foes into icons of Chaos.
Attacking shipping all over the Reach, they have started to gain a reputation as cruel and bloodthirsty followers of the Blood God, leaving all but one alive from their raids to tell tales of the atrocities committed by Ulthor and his followers.
There are also tales of the depravities committed by the Followers of Ulthor. One such tale comprises of a mining colony on Iphigenia, where a small outpost was butchered to the last man, and the women and children were sacrificed into the mining pit calling forth a Greater Daemon of Khorne to wreak havoc on the outlying settlements. This was closed up by an unknown inquisitor who banished the daemon with the aid of a Kill-Team from the Deathwatch.
