Eckhardt the Brave is the Venerated Soul of rural law enforcers. He is recognized by the Cult of Sigmar.


The town of Ubersreik pays homage to their personal Venerated Soul each year by publicly executing a criminal in their town square. The victim is branded with the twin-tailed comet and placed in a small box with an angry swarm of bees. Whilst considered cruel, and certainly unusual by other Reiklanders, the townsfolk do this to commemorate Eckhardt, a travelling judge, who died in the same way when he tried to pass judgement on a well-known outlaw that prowled the Reikwald.[1a]
