Clan Eshin Acolyte[edit]

Clan Eshin is, by far, the most villainous of the Skaven clans (which is really saying something). This mysterious clan trains stealthy spies and murderous Assassins-for-hire. Clan Eshin has eyes everywhere and its deadly operatives are scattered throughout the Under-Empire, as well as secreted about the cities of the surface dwellers. For the right price, the black-clad agents of Clan Eshin will steal any information, commit any act or sabotage or slay any rival required. Considering the treacherous, scheming and paranoid nature of Skaven, it is no wonder that Clan Eshin has become so powerful. Clan Eshin provides an unseen force with which the Council of Thirteen and other powerful Skaven maintain (or gain) their positions of power. Within the highly feared Caverns of Unyielding Shadow, the Clan Eshin district deep in the belly of Skavenblight, treaty-pacts are claw-marked and the doom of many rivals is assured.
