Lucius the eternal has the ability to transform his killer in him again.

Since that day, Lucius has borne a peculiar blessing from his patron, Slaanesh. Whoever takes his chosen champion's life, and finds even a moment of satisfaction from the act, will find themselves undergoing a painful and gradual metamorphosis. When the transformation is almost complete, Lucius emerges from their discarded shell like a butterfly from a chrysalis. All that remains of his killer will be a screaming face trapped forever in the fleshy panels of his twisted battle plate.

Are there limits to this ability? E.g., as this blessing is linked to the Warp, could he transform a Pariah or would a Pariah be immune to this?

Edit:

As Daft pointed out:

A Blank is the direct antithesis of Chaos as he or she possesses no presence within the Warp. Blanks are completely immune to daemonic possession and spiritual corruption by Chaos.

However, in the Horus Heresy Book "Nemesis", there is Spear, a Pariah which is bonded with a daemon:

He forced Spear to undergo a painful and vile Chaotic ritual, in which a minor daemon from the Immaterium was bonded with the former assassin.

Nope, if a regular Pariah killed Lucius he would not come back.

A Pariah absolutely cannot be affected by any warpcraft or be possessed by a demon.

A Blank is the direct antithesis of Chaos as he or she possesses no presence within the Warp. Blanks are completely immune to daemonic possession and spiritual corruption by Chaos.

  • What about Black Pariah / Spear? > Boarding the Sisters' vessel, the Word Bearers killed all aboard, with the exception of Spear. Sensing the usefulness of such a unique specimen, Erebus found a new purpose for his captive. He forced Spear to undergo a painful and vile Chaotic ritual, in which a minor daemon from the Immaterium was bonded with the former assassin. Will edit my question. – Shade Sep 20 at 13:13
  • @Shade well the trick there is the word unique. Every Pariah alive today could be immune to demonic possession until some Black Library author creates a Pariah tomorrow that can be possessed. What we can say is all Pariahs except Spear could not be possessed by Lucius after killing him. – Daft Sep 20 at 13:58
  • @Shade Pariah's are immune to anything warp related, that's their whole gimmick. Until suddenly someone creates one that isn't. I suggest that if Spear is not immune to the warp, then Spear is not really a Pariah. – Daft Sep 20 at 14:00
  • @Shade - please open a chat, thanks this is the room: chat.stackexchange.com/rooms/info/98997/… – Vogon Poet Sep 23 at 15:54
