A few Neverborn, like Pandora, have been gifted with features which make them all but indistinguishable from the humans who have come to defile her homelands. She bears her features not with disgust as some do but as a disguise which allows her to walk the streets of Malifaux. She wanders among the City's men and women, sowing sorrow and discord among them.
At a glance, she can turn a man's emotions against him, drowning him in his own insecurities until he begs for death's release. With a whisper Pandora can make a human so despise her own being that the woman is capable of doing unspeakable harm to herself, and others.
Many people who arrive in Malifaux make mention of its oppressive atmosphere, how this place seems to inspire intolerance and melancholy. Some have speculated that it is this creature, Pandora, who holds the City beneath her veil of despair. Her agents, known as Woes, walk amongst us, and through their influence, they turn men against each other. Theirs are the whispers that inspire jealousy, greed, and murder.
Pandora's influence is more subtle than that of other Neverborn Masters. Her strengths lie in her ability to manipulate other models and turn them against themselves and one another. She appears extremely fragile to players unfamiliar with her abilities, but the ability of her Woes to become the targets of attacks aimed at her should not be underestimated, nor should her ability to influence the sequence enemy models will activate during a Turn. One of Pandora's most effective abilities is Emotional Trauma, which inflicts Wounds on models whenever they lose a Willpower Duel near her.
The best place to start collecting a Pandora Crew is with The Legion of Sorrows Box Set which should give you enough models to play a small game. If you want to expand on this Pandora can hire most of the models as she has access to most of the Neverborn range. Below are a few suggestions, but what you choose is up to you.
The Primordial Magic is good at casting Pandora's spells and also allows her an additional card.
The Doppelganger has the ability to copy traits of other models around it, allowing you to copy useful skills off your own models. It can also help you winning initiative.
The Hooded Rider is a big hard hitting model. It can happily work out on a flank on its own without the rest of the crew supporting it, making it the perfect model for grabbing distant objectives or protecting your flank.
The two twins Lelu and Lelitu are a nice addition to Pandora's crew. Lelu is a hard hitting combat monster.
Lelitu act's in a supporting role, able to drag enemy into your crew or heal your minions.
