Wyrd Games are continuing their previews for The Explorer's Society once more this week as they revealed a twisted and haunting character. The Damned is creeping its way out of the darkness to serve your crew in games of Malifaux soon.

In true Wyrd fashion, we have some fun lore to read about for The Damned which should get you in the mood...

"He ordered their tongues cut out so none could challenge his throne…

It pulled itself from a frozen tomb in the Northern Hills with twisted claws. Emaciated flesh hung from its bones; a rack of horns grew from a skull more animal than man. It took only a little mote of life to bring this lost creature back from the dead. The Damned’s first encounter with Jedza ended in a stalemate; the woman did not die, but without her presence the Damned would return to its frozen tomb. Each wanted something from the other. A tiny finger bone from Jedza allows the Damned to remain alive. If Jedza commands, it must aid her in whatever she asks.

Long ago, the Damned was the first to be remade into something more by the Tyrant December. This connection fascinates Jedza, especially since the monster has a darkness inside its long-withered heart: a hatred for December that runs impossibly deep. She shared rumors about a woman with dark hair and pale blue eyes who had managed to survive the Tyrant’s gifts, as the Damned once did. Rage helps guide each new step it takes. It will return to the Northern Peaks. It will consume the magic of December inside His latest vessel and take its rightful place on the peaks. The Damned can only imagine how good her heart will taste."

Spooky stuff! As well as getting a look at the artwork, we also got a peek at how the miniature is turning out too. Once again, it looks like the sculptor has managed to get the model very much in line with the artwork.

More detail on this particular miniature is included over in the Crew Builder for Malifaux. Not only is this creature hard to kill but it's ferocious and is able to use the bits that it leaves behind to feed and heal others around it. It can also leap around the tabletop, rending with its claws and it also has freezing breath!

Are you liking this edge to The Explorer's Society?
