He sounds different, has unusual swiftness in Terminator Armor, is noticeably larger, and is missing an eye. Gabriel Angelos in DoW III is Magnus the Red in disguise.

* This troper will go one further and not only bet that the Tzeentch branch of chaos will be prominently featured in the game (or it's expansion if chaos misses the boat again) but will also herald the return of the fanbase's favorite [[TheChessmaster chessmaster]], who is only presumed dead anyway on the word of a [[ManipulativeBastard demon]].

* Oh come now, it's ''completely'' implausible. Imagine if a Chaos Space Marine was defeated by the Blood Ravens, then came back to life serving a different Legion and considerably more bloodthirsty than their previous in-love-with-their-own-voice MagnificentBastard self. Why, the fanbase would revolt and hate this character!

Added DiffLines:

*Well Cyrus mentions Karauva so Boreale definitely got himself and four or so companies killed. Possibly Kyras intentionally put him in a position beyond his skill to weaken the Blood Ravens to more easily sway them to Chaos.

*Yeah but it is Sindri though and he's infamous for somehow planning for everything. It might not be too farfetched to assume he disguised some souls as his and force fed them to the daemon

** They were assigned elsewhere ''just'' as Stubbs' base is attacked. ThereAreNoCoincidences in Warhammer40K, only Tzeentch's plans coming together.

Consider: In DOW2, the reason your five squads are expected to hold three planets are because that's all the Chapter can spare, not having replaced the devastating losses on Kaurava. This is because it's a much better justification than your Force Commander being both the youngest in history and the most skilled. Thus in order to make it palatable by the players, they deliberately made Soulstorm as bad as possible so the players would have as much reason to hate them as Cyrus (who would also have no reason to fall to Chaos were it not for the incompetence of Indrick Boreale).

*** Or maybe loyalist Black Legion/Sons Of Horus/Luna Wolves? The existance of such would piss Abbadon off.

** Nah, loyalist Thousand Sons, except that, at the time of HorusHeresy, they were told they could continue if 1) they kept their origin secret and 2) they let their geneseed be modified somewhat by the introduction of some elements from another Legion's geneseed. They therefore kept it secret even from most brothers (so it would never slip out) and chose the Raven Guard as the most compatible, thus explaining why they are not obviously Thousand Sons.

* Latest news fresh from the press; the HorusHeresy Novel ''A Thousand Sons'' has a scene where a women psyker forsees the Thousand Son's future and explicitly sees a Raven of Blood. Not quite confirmation but a step closer...
