A silence and stillness descended upon the pancratitaph. Edited: Except for a few...Usually Rune Priests. I love to read an excerpt, then read all the comments below. Khayon is telling the Inquisition what they want to hear in an attempt to manipulate them in some way. Here's why Khayon could be biased and here's evidence of Ahriman being depicted 'whole'. People need to think more about who's saying what and why. Ahriman's corruption is plain to see and obvious on the inside which a fellow wizard would perceive. I'm not one of the people who thinks the Emperor is heartless and uncaring, either which is something a lot of people took away from that book, somehow. "No. Of all the things to lie about because you hate someone... why that they have no face? I happen to enjoy the debate, though I understand the desire for certainty. He probably thinks he looks just like he always did. +There are other deeds that can place a burden on a life. +I am not here because I tried to kill you. I wonder what other psykers see when they look at him?' I understand what you mean but I find the constant "there is no answer" or "OR IS IT???" Which of course means Wrath also has to take place relatively early in the 13th Black Crusade, and may have fit into Abaddon's plans as "have Morty and Magnus keep the Wolves busy long enough for me to get a good foothold on/over Cadia."

He was then inducted to join the Adeptus Astartesalong with his twin brother, Ohrmuzd (who later died of severe mutations, making this a clear reference to Ahriman and Ormuzd, the two Zoroastrian deities of light and dark—guess which one A… Get an ad-free experience with special benefits, and directly support Reddit. My personal theory is that Khayon is referring to Ahriman mind becoming a part of the warp. Aaron essentially gave us an answer that makes us ask a million follow up questions with Khayon's remark.

[–]BrotherAhzek 96 points97 points98 points 2 years ago (25 children). Doesn't want it, prefers the BL's very bias view from someone who hates Ahzek's guts so much. So don't get me wrong Ahriman's faults are the most interesting part of his character, it's still 'throwing shade' to name and shame him about it however. It looks metaphorical to me. He's there of his own free will, presumably, either traveling to or from Nemesis Tessera, but is leery of other Inquisitors wanting a piece of him given that he's famous. Despite Ahriman’s efforts, the raw, white heat of the detonation set alight his Coptic robes and melted the cerulean flesh from the tip of his nose and patches across one side of his face. Not to be that guy, but what if his ravaged face turns into a void as it heals from that particular grievous wound? Ahriman I thought from reading his novels see it but just rejects it deluded yes but he can make you believe him in, make you want to believe. See what Ahzek Ahriman (ahzekahriman) found on Pinterest, the home of the world's best ideas. I wanted so badly to enjoy it and I tried so hard to like it but reluctantly I was forced to admit that it was at best a … Couldn't dust-Ahriman make a Psyker illusion of his face? Khayon could be dead right, halfway there, or entirely wrong.

I didn't make it bloodlusted for a reason. It's supposed to be subjective, I think, as the above contradicts French's Ahriman trilogy. Ahriman: The Omnibus is a wonderful collection of stories detailing the exile of Ahzek Ahriman, Chief Librarian of the Thousand Sons Legion. Implying anything is definitive is pretty much the only way to be wrong in stuff like this. The Ultramarines face an impossible decision: mount a desperate last stand to destroy the Pariah Nexus, or break away and damn the entire sector to bring word of this ancient foe’s resurgence to the only being capable of halting it - the Lord Primarch Roboute Guilliman. my response would likely be very different. [–]TyranidsTyranid_Swarmlord 7 points8 points9 points 2 years ago (0 children). Perhaps decrying the reddit gods for this injustice is slightly pre-mature. and John French said "Who knows? Ahriman probably has a perfectly normal face that might be his, might be a new one he sculptured for himself and it might be a different one tomorrow. [–]VisNihil 0 points1 point2 points 2 years ago (5 children). It's intentionally vague and controversial, as is fitting of two bickering servants of Tzeentch. Take a look at the Eye of Terror codex and you'll find that Czevak's abduction was a significant part of the overall prologue to the 13th Black Crusade.

So unaltered? Rule 6: No real-world politics. And those mysteries are much more interesting in my opinion because they are real and not artificial things the writers decided not to write about ever. Please review. A single grain of sand can tip the scale. [–]BrotherAhzek 1 point2 points3 points 2 years ago (5 children).

[–]72killertomato 11 points12 points13 points 2 years ago (1 child), Yeah but this is Khayon stuck in the Imperial Dungeon in 999.M41, [–]TyranidsTyranid_Swarmlord 4 points5 points6 points 2 years ago (0 children). Khayon's just being mildly hyperbolic because he's jelly that Ahriman's a better space wizard. I think this selling Khayon a little short. [Excerpt|Shadowsun: Kiru's Last Line]Shadowsun contemplates her life choices & gets frustrated. +You will not stand with me again, though?+, +The Thousand Sons were no more for me a long time ago, Ahriman.+. Fan fiction must be labeled, such as using [F] to denote such a post. submitted 2 years ago by Sons of HorusImperator_Crispico, Ahriman believes he is perfectly unaltered. This things together leave very little time for Ahriman to be involved with the storylines in Atlas Infernal honestly.
