Typhus the Traveller is an infamous plague marine and the greatest champion of the Chaos God Nurgle. Having long since become something less than human, this pestilential monster spreads filth and decay across the multiverse in Nurgle’s name.
An Early Convert. It is said that Typhus worshipped the Ruinous Powers long before the chaos space marine legions rebelled against the god-emperor, and that he kept his true allegiance secret for decades. During the war Typhus made a deal with the Chaos God Nurgle, trapping his legion’s fleet between the planes where they would be easy prey for Nurgle’s daemons in exchange for power. A horrible pestilence took hold of the ships, and Typhus’s fellow space marines were transformed into the first plague marines while he became something far worse.
The Destroyer Hive. Typhus’s flesh is inextricably fused to the inside of his terminator armour, and countless stinging flies now crawl through his honeycombed body like bees within a hive. They are the Destroyer Hive, and the Hive is Typhus. The flies surround Typhus in a constant cloud, biting and stinging at anything that comes too close, filling the air with a nauseating drone. Between that and the foul stench of his decaying body, merely standing in Typhus’s vicinity is as much of an ordeal as trying to fight him.
Arms of the Reaper. Typhus carries the Manreaper, a scythe used by the bodyguards of the titan Mortarion. Its notched blade is encrusted with filth and saturated with curses, and any wound it inflicts becomes difficult to heal. He also carries the grotesque blight grenades common to all plague marines. Finally, Typhus has sorcerous powers that manifest as waves of rancid air and bursts of poisonous fluid that far exceed what his bloated body should be able to contain.
Undead Nature. Typhus does not need to eat, sleep, drink or breathe.
