The Nine Kings of the Great Waste believed one could never be too rich, too powerful, or too ruthless. Perhaps the best example of this was their practice of identifying the Storm Daughters -- young girls among the Bedouin tribes who were gifted in the ways of sorcery -- and claiming them as soldiers for their barbaric armies. The Storm Daughters were trained to use their control of the weather to utterly destroy enemies of the Nine Kings, and the sand, dust, and thunderstorms they could summon were used to mask the looting of sacred sites and fallen castles. When the Storm Daughters could take no more death and refused to fight for the brutal kings, they were sacrificed on an altar built from the gold they had helped steal.
But the Nine Kings, so focused on victory in the mortal realm, did not consider the aftershocks of their heartlessness. As they passed, one by one, into the spirit realms, something waited for them. The Storm Wraith, an elemental being created from the vengeful souls of the Storm Daughters, stood ready to serve justice upon the Nine in whatever fashion would bring them the most misery. And now that they have all been released from All Hells, she hunts them across Newerth to ensure their reign of terror does not begin anew.
