Morathi, also known as the Hag Sorceress of Ghrond, is one of the leaders of the Dark Elves faction from the wargame Warhammer Fantasy and its related media, She is the mother of Malekith, the Witch-King of Naggaroth, and the most powerful sorceress of the dark elves. She leads the Cult of Pleasure sub-faction and she is also her son's chief Advisor.
Born to scheming and politics, and a talented sorceress, Morathi has spent five thousand years teaching her son Malekith all she knows of statecraft and magic, and works to maintain his grip on the throne of Naggaroth.
Morathi is totally dedicated to her son, as he is to her. Between them they rule Naggaroth with an iron grip and bloodied sword.
Morathi has always had the taint of the Chaos gods about her – She met with Malekith’s father, Aenarion, when the Elven lord rescued her from a Chaos attack. Many believe that it was during her time as a captive that the insidious claws of the Dark Gods first crept in her soul. It was Morathi who founded the Cult of Pleasure on Ulthuan, which eventually led to bloody civil war and the cataclysm of the Sundering.
Morathi was the first to perfect the Dark Art, opening up gateways to the realms of Chaos to steal vast and unimaginable powers. Combined with her stunning beauty and keen intellect, it is Morathi’s magical abilities that allow her to hold sway over her enemies.
