Twin-Tailed Comet

The Grand Theogonist is the head of the Cult of Sigmar and most important religious official in The Empire. He is one of the Emperor's staunchest allies and most trusted advisers. He is also one of the Electors, meaning he is able to vote for the next emperor (invariably, his vote goes to the Count of Reikland).
