- "Soon all will be mine... Your minds, your bodies, your very souls will kneel before me."
- — Yhue Drai'Gon, Scorcerer Lord of the Vortex Dragons
The Vortex Dragons are a Chaos Space Marine Warband dedicated to the infamous Lord of Change, Tzeentch. They strike from the void, scouring the Galaxy for arcane secrets and dark relics to further their power, and wreak havoc upon the Imperium.
The First Sons
- "Learn all you can, and become... those words drive me to this day."
- —Yhue on his years within the Thousand Sons Legion
The man who would become the so called "Vortex Dragon", born Yhue Drai'Gon, began his life on Prospero during Mangus The Reds rule. He grew up admiring the Red one with great fervor, thus when the Emperor descended from the heavens and granted Mangus his Legion, Yhue considered himself blessed to be one of the first recruits taken from Propsero to join the Legion of his beloved leader. Yhue proved himself to be an exceptional recruit early in his training, his psychic potential unlocking itself and proving to be one of the strongest in the Legion. (Though he would never reach the vaunted levels of power of his great Primarch or his second Ahriman) He would find a place in the Pavoni Cult, his natural affinity for Biomancy earning him a place amongst their ranks.
The Great Crusade
- "To Battle my Brothers! For the Emperor and Prospero!"
- —Yhue leading his fellow Thousand Sons into battle
Yhue soon found himself as one of the more prestigious Sorcerers of the 3rd Fellowship, and quickly earned the favor of the Pavoni Cults leader and his Captain, Hathor Maat. However, in spite of his duties as the Fellowships premier healer, he was often found on the front-lines, fighting for the lives of his fellow Battle Brothers and slaughtering those foolish enough to get in his way with Force Sword and Plasma Pistol. (Or by launching lightning from his mind) His research into Biomancy was the talk of his cult, most notably his research into the Flesh Change the Thousand Sons still occasionally suffered from. Often Yhue would procure specimens of mutant populations from every world the Thousand Sons conquered, studying the effects of his abilities on the mutant tissue and genetics.

The Vortex Dragons prefer to use trickery and deception, having their cultists infiltrate worlds years in advance and planting agents within the enemies ranks. In battle their Aspiring Sorcerers and Rubric Marine Havocs are devastating, combining the might of Chaos enhanced heavy weapons and Sorcery to utterly destroy all who stand in their way. Mutants and daemons are used as shock troops, while their savage cultists form a more disciplined force of fighters, led by the Chaos Marines themselves.
Having wholly sworn themselves to the Lord of Change, these warriors serve him with loyalty and undying fanaticism. However, Izura's scheming ways have pitted him against agents of his Lord more than once and he will cut down any who stand his way with ruthless indifference.
