"Soon enough, the Anathema won't stand the succulent itching... *SLUURP* In his decaying body anymore."

Nurgle, the Plaguefather, also known as the Supernatural Garbage Bag,[1] is a Chaos God.

Official Canon[]

As the god of decay and disease, Nurgle has a hand in virtually all lifeforms in the galaxy. The worst plagues are of his direct making, allowing him to spread his influence easily.

During the Fall of the Eldar, Nurgle intervened when Slaanesh attempted to consume Isha, claiming the Eldar goddess for himself. He has kept her locked away in his plague garden where he uses her to test his various dieases. Being the goddess of healing, she always recovers from his infections; if Nurgle is pleased with the results, he unleashes them onto the galaxy. If not, he starts the process all over again.

TTS Canon[]

Nurgle spends most of his time doting on Isha and working on his new plague called Crotch Rot.[2] He also created Phantom Itching, causing the Emperor's nose to itch despite it not being there anymore.[3]

During the first Warp Chat session, Nurgle claims to feel pity for Tzeench getting the Magnus-soul beaten out of him, despite them being archenemies.[4] During the second session, he falls for Tzeench's prank of delivering the Lord of Rot a bunch of pizza boxes loaded with tzeechian pink horrors, which proceed to ruin his garden. According to Isha, Nurgle then weeps so much that he drops a plague of Crotch Rot onto an imperial hive-world.[5]
