A Keeper of Secrets is a greater daemon of Slaanesh, a consummate warrior and spellmaster of the Dark Prince’s hosts. Its four powerful arms move languidly as it slinks forwards, only to explode into lethal motion when their prey is in reach.

Delicate Precision: A Keeper of Secrets attacks its foes with a dazzling array of exquisitely measured blows.
