Some Flayerkin arise through mutation, and others are created by barbaric surgery. These creatures are basically Human-or at least, humanoid-but their arms end in great blades and hooks rather than hands, and they trail heavy iron chains that are fused to their spines. During the siege, Archaon sent hordes of Flayerkin scaling the Ulricsberg, trailing chains behind them that their allies could climb. All were killed before they could reach the top of the rock, and dozens of the creatures still hang where they died.[1a]
