The damage that the Selefer caused in the Silent Forest is already bad enough by just looking at the environment. But with the destruction of the area around it they created something far more darker, chaos magic given form.
Within areas affected by Chaos Corruption
there is a variety of monstrosities that one can encounter. The worst of all is perhaps the Chaos Vortex. It is still shrouded in mystery as there are only few who encounter it and live to tell the tale.
But from what the few accounts that do reach the civilised world we know a few things. That it is without a defined form and that it can spawn various chaos monstrosities. This is why it is generally assumed that it has a form of connection to the Primal Chaos

Can only be found in areas affected by Chaos Corruption
such as the Silent Forest
Not much is known about Chaos Vortex as those who got close to it died. The information we have is mostly from people who saw it killing some of their companions and then running away.
The Chaos Vortex when not moving would actually look like a very large Chaos Crystal
. It has the same dark purple color and its outer layer at first sight does look solid.
It is only once it starts its ambush that it starts to change form. Once this happens the previously solid looking crystal seems to liquify and sometimes evens float up to a meter in the air. This new form gives the Chaos Vortex much flexibilty as it can portrude sections of its form up to 10 meter to attack.
The favorite method of killing its victims is assumed to be engulfing as this appears in all survivors accounts. One account even mention that he could see the Chaos Vortex changing his companion and make him look similar to those affected by Chaos Corruption
Things like reproduction or required food of the chaos vortex are as of yet still unknown.

The Chaos Vortices can only be found in areas affected by Chaos Corruption
. A prime example of this is the Silent Forest
where many expeditions were undertaken of which almost all completely failed. Thse expedtions, however, did give the basic insight into these beings that we currently have.
It is not really known if the vortices are a result of the corruption around it or are actually the ones spreading it further. Some theorise that it is Chaos magic given form and that many of them could already be quite ancient.
Some myths claim that these vortices can be found outside chaos areas when they accompany a Chaos Tempest
. None of these claims, however, have thus far been verified.
