Thanes are not only great warriors, but also possess magical abilities. A Thane can teleport himself into his enemies' ranks, slaughtering them by brute strength with his axe. In addition, his axe fires off lightning bolts, striking nearby enemies. Thanes are immune to the elements of Lightning.OffBck

The thane is the sixth-level creature of the Fortress in the Heroes of Might and Magic V expansion, Hammers of Fate.

With its teleporting ability and a Storm Strike that can travel from enemy to enemy, the thane can do great damage to an enemy army.
