Is Kheradruakh the only named Mandrake character, so far, please? If not, where can I find fluff on the other(s)?

Thank you.

I've not seen any more, besides the stuff I made up of course!

I almost swear I've read another Mandrake name somewhere - but it was a throwaway comment like 'killed by Billy-bob, the fell Mandrake assassin' and nothing more.

They are exceedingly not fleshed out in the fluff.

Xoruakh and Azoruakh The Mandrake kings in `Path of the Archon`

But you are right, they are extreemely faceless creatures and about as characterful as a basket of laborador puppies.

So, Kheradruakh, Xoruakh and Azoruakh?

If one was to create a new, fictional Mandrake name, it just has to end in -ruakh? That's "rrrrrue" with a wee Scottish burr, and "ach" with a nice guttural cough at the end.

Thanks everyone.

I was just thinking those two mandrake kings (as well as their spelling!).

Those were the only two mandrakes (in addition to the Decapitator himself) in that book, though. I don't think at least there were any other mandrakes mentioned.
So yeah, if you want to meet ALL the mandrakes, you just need one book.

Path of the Archon was a true eyeopener.

Mandrakes do seem to have structured armies.

Those 2 mandrakes lords were very different from Kheradruakh, he just seems to be a hunter, collecting his heads, while the 2 lords behaved like proper dark eldar, wanting to grab power.

They had normal mandrakes under them and elite mandrakes, as well as Ur ghul squads, quite interesting specialist army, I'd love to heard more about it.

Heamonculi in fluff also have very different army structures than in the codex or either the supplement, though the supplement does get in very close to reality.

Scourges also had their own army structure going on with a Scourge lord, shortly mentioned.

Incubi have the same thing with their Incubi Hierarch at the top of eahc temple. Not quite as strong as Drahzar, but still a lot stronger than your average incubi.

For some reason I feel like I read about a Mandrake assassin hunting a Space Marine or something of the like in a SM book. Or maybe it was a Gaunt's Ghost novel. Don't think he had a name, but he was pretty badass from what I remember.

Kheradruakh makes it clear that something was wrong though. They weren't behaving like Mandrakes because of the influence of chaos. He found it wrong and against their ways to be squabbling over a meaningless throne as if they were normal Eldar.

I think the book actually also hinted that Kherry (I got to figure out how to shorten his name somehow) also had an interest of some kind for one of the chaos gods in particular when he was examining the skulls of both of those mandrakes afterward.
Been a while since I read the book so I don't remember which one he took first and by which chaos god the kings were corrupted but I remember that he discarded the first one and kept the second one for his own collection?

They where corrupted by tzeentch and nurgle, he killed the tzeentch one first. He kept both skulls and put them opposite each other in his trophy room if I recall correctly.

There was also a mandrake in one of the Grey Knight books who was pretending to be a regular Eldar... though that was the one and only time I've ever heard a mandrake being able to completely change his appearance
