Lost his hands at the Lakonia Star Fort against the Adeptus Mechanicus, and nerve damage prevented augmentics from being applied, so he later jammed Chainswords into the stubs to continue fighting. His mutation kept the swords in place, and gave him a healing powers beyond that of a normal Marine, but also turned him into a berserk fighter who had to be dragged from fights. Turned against the Soul Drinkers at Stratix Luminae, following Khorne. Killed when Entymion IV was subjected to Exterminatus.

* AnArmAndALeg: He lost his hands in ''Soul Drinker''.
* AttackAttackAttack: He's usually the first into the fray.
* '''{{Badass}}''': Probably the most badass of the Soul Drinkers.

Lord Commander of the Imperial Guard forces on Entymion IV.

* AFatherToHisMen: He'll spend his forces if he has to, but he won't waste them needlessly.
* TheChainsOfCommanding: Being in charge of an Imperial reconquest force which includes a Space Marine Company more interested in wiping out its erstwhile cousins, an artillery regiment run by an [[ObstructiveBureaucrat Administratum adept]], an assault regiment whose Colonel is a desk jockey and is little more than a puppet for his First Lieutenant, and an infantry regiment which hasn't seen actually combat in three centuries, against a Dark Eldar Kabal which worships Slaanesh, a group of Khornate Berzerkers, and a Slaaneshi cult. Oh, and the Dark Eldar just summoned Daemons onto the planet.
* DeadpanSnarker
* FateWorseThanDeath: Despite the circumstances being beyond his control, his "failure" to reconquer Entymion IV sees the Inquisition sentence him to "eternal service". He expects he'll end up commander of a Death World garrison or in the Penal Legions. He actually ''wanted'' to be left on Entymion IV when Exterminatus was administered.
