I look upon the doom that we created, every cycle. I feel the gnaw of it, the lure of subservience, the promises of glory. I face it, accept the whole truth of what it is, and I fight. Am I a predator, feeding others to the beast that stalks me? Yes. And a scavenger too, for I will fling whatever morsel I find into that maw to keep it busy for a few more moments. Every heartbeat is precious to me, but do not think I am afraid of death. I have drawn more out of life than any other of our kind.
|~ Asdrubael Vect to the Phoenix Lord Jain Zar|
Asdrubael Vect is the Dark Eldar Archon of the Kabal of the Black Heart and the current Supreme Overlord of the Dark City of Commorragh. Considered the most devious of a race legendary for deviousness, Vect is possibly older than the Fall of the Eldar. It was Vect who shaped Commorragh from a sprawling corsair port and collection of autonomous sub-realms into what it had become by the late 41st Millennium, a vast and incalculably powerful and evil galactic metropolis located deep within the Labyrinthine Dimension of the Webway. Among the murderous hierarchy of the Dark Eldar race, and from the lowest of beginnings, Vect gained and holds on to his position with both an unmatched intelligence, murderous ambition and a talent for cunning that is said by some to rival that of the Chaos God Tzeentch. Vect knows the primary weaknesses of all the major sentient races of the galaxy, and those of his own species most thoroughly of all. Quite simply, Asdrubael Vect is one of the oldest, most powerful, and most deadly beings to walk amongst the mortals of the 41st Millennium.

The Dais of Destruction is superior to regular Ravagers, and should be comparable to squads of Eldar Fire Prism Grav-Tank, which can scar the surface of a moon with craters), up to Solar System level with Technology & Preparation (As the Supreme Overlord of Commorragh, Asdrubael Vect has access to all the ancient weapons and technological achievements of the Dark City, which includes Black Holes contained within boxes, Superweapons capable of shattering whole planets and extinguishing suns, Technologies that allow entire planets and stars to be transported across dimensions, leaving gaping holes in the fabric of the Space-Time Continuum, and Dimensional Mirrors that can teleport all which is reflected upon its surface into the heart of a sun, among other weapons of similar power)

- The Dais of Destruction: In the rare instances in which Asdrubael Vect joins his armies in the field of battle, he does so while riding his personal Gunship, the Dais of Destruction, a heavily modified Ravager Heavy Support craft with a raised platform where the Dark Eldar Supreme Overlord reclines on his Throne. The Dais not only possesses more firepower and weapon systems than a traditional Ravager, but is also much larger, allowing Vect to be accompanied by a personal retinue of bodyguards and slaves.
Intelligence: Superhuman (Eldar in general process information much faster than ordinary humans, and consider human thinking to be primitive, or akin to a child's. On top of that, Asdrubael Vect is among the most brilliant minds in the entire Galaxy, containing over 10 millennia of knowledge and experience. His cunning is almost unparalleled, and he commands the entirety of Commorragh with little effort, manipulating all his would-be rivals like pieces on a board without they ever realizing it. A great strategist and administrator who has ensured the prosperity of the Dark City for over 10 millennia, and who has successfully countered countless threats that would have otherwise wiped the entire Dark Eldar race)
