Luthor Huss was born in a small peaceful Imperial village, however he was soon orphaned by a Chaos raid. While the raiders were driven away from the village, both of his parents had been killed and the rest of the villagers decided to give young boy to the Church of Sigmar.
Storm of ChaosEdit
While wandering the Empire, an incredible story reached Huss, the story of Valten. Years earlier a Twin Tailed Comet had graced the skies on signalled the birth of the young blacksmith. Born with the said comet on his chest, he had soon grew up to be a powerful young man, however one day a band of Beastmen attacked the village of Lachenbad where he lived. Most of the locals fled, but Valten refused. He took two hammers from his fathers smithy and fought the beastmen, eventually slaying their chieftain, and driving the rest out of the village.
It wasn't long before Huss had proclaimed that Valten was Sigmar reborn, and a small army of faithful gathered around them on their way to Altdorf. As they reached the city, the Emperor Karl Franz was pondering what to do. Splitting the Empire could prove fatal with a major Chaos Incursion under way, but he couldn't just leave the Empire in the hands of a uneducated blacksmith. Showing the wits and guile he has become known for, Karl Franz decided to grant Valten Ghal Maraz, and proclaim him the spiritual leader of the Empire, while he retained his position as Emperor.
Eventually Valten faced the Everchosen of Chaos, Archaon The Lord of the End Times, at the gates of Middenheim. They met as the champions of Order and Destruction, and after an incredible fight a wounded Valten was thrown to the ground. Seeing that Achaon was about to claim his victory, Huss charged him and landed a series of hard blows on the Everchosen, eventually bringing him to one knee. Archaon, however, would not be stopped, and in a quick counter attack sent the Warrior Priest flying across the battlefield.
The two Sigmarites were saved by the Black Orc Grimgor Ironhide, who just wanted to face the champion of chaos and show he was the strongest. Huss carried the comatose Valten to Middenheim where they were both tended to by Shallya priests, and while Huss was saved, Valten was assassinated by insidious Skaven assassins. Karl Franz, again using his wits, instructed Huss to inform the people of the Empire that Sigmar has once again left as he did in ages past, and that he has entrusted the Emperor to rule and protect the Empire in its days until their patron god's return.
