Ail’Sleresh, The Heartslayer
This is based upon a great story from the Chaos Daemons codex. Essentially (for those who haven’t read it), the story goes that a keeper of secrets tricked an eldar maiden into letting it enter past the protections of an eldar craft world. Stealing the key to the defences, the keeper of secrets deactivated them and let thousands of slaanesh daemons attack the craftworld.
The Heartslayer entered the chamber of the young king within the craftworld before the avatar could be awakened, and woke it as a soul-less monster. Gouging out its eyes and cutting its bloody hand off, the daemon took over the avatar’s form, and so the craftworld was left as a dead world, a testament to slaanesh.

I was tempted to do an extra rule or something about it being demoralising to see a possessed avatar but i decided not to in the end.
