From the post:
Horomatangi is an ancient, powerful creature from Malifaux. It arrived on Earth in the mid-sixteenth century and immediately started terrorizing the Maori people. It was a mighty spellcaster in Malifaux, and it was the ruthless overlord of a long string of half-sunken islands. It used sheer power to command the mewling members of the Gibbering Hordes that were unlucky enough to live in its domain.
