Warhammer 40K: Rogue Trader – Meet Your Drukhari Companion

2 Minute Read
Sep 11 2023

Rogue Traders in Owlcat’s upcoming Warhammer 40K: Rogue Trader will be able to make all sorts of companions. Even Drukhari.

In Rogue Trader, a big part of your success will be recruiting companions of all shapes and sizes. And of course, varying degrees of heresy. Which is, of course, what many Rogue Traders will flirt with to some extent or another. Especially the more open-minded Rogue Traders who manage to recruit Marazhai Aezyrraesh.

Aezyrraesh is the Dracon of the Kabal of the Reaving Tempest. Driven by a lust for violence and power, Aezyrraesh gets up to all the different things that you’d expect a scion of Commorragh to get up to, right up until he ends up needing the help of one fateful Rogue Trader…

Drukhari Companion on Warhammer 40K: Rogue Trader

Stripped of everything that once belonged to him, Marazhai receives one final favor – to perish to the delight of his kin, feeding their insatiable hunger with his exquisite pain. This fate is unlikely to suit the proud Kabalite of the Reaving Tempest, and he has one last chance to avoid it – to enter into an alliance with yesterday’s enemy. If this uneasy union holds together, if the doomed find their way out of Commorragh, if this Drukhari, a child of the Webway, survives in realspace… then the fallen Dracon will have a shred of hope: one day reclaim the shards of what he once considered his own or follow the path of bloody revenge as someone with nothing to lose.

The rut of daily life on a Human voidship can be unbearably dull for a creature of such different customs – and there is none more inventive in devising twisted entertainment than a bored Drukhari. Since only the Rogue Trader is worthy of any attention amid the surrounding rabble, it will not be difficult for them to attract Marazhai’s special consideration. A former preything can just as easily be turned into an amusing plaything… or, if the chosen rules dictate, roles can change completely. For a reckless – or unwary – Rogue Trader willing to indulge Marazhai’s debauched nature, he has much to share on the subject of depravity and cruelty – things might just leave a permanent mark on the soul of a willing and receptive “mon-keigh”.
