"Here I am, and here I shall die."One of twenty Primarchs created by the Emperor of Mankind, Leman and his brothers were scattered to the stars by the Chaos Gods to prevent the coming of the Imperium. Landing on Fenris, Leman grew up amongst the Fenrisian Wolves, with two wolf brothers Freki and Geri. Eventually captured by the people of Russ, Leman was taken in by their king. Eventually succeeding him, Leman Russ went on to conquer Fenris. When the Emperor arrived, Leman was one of the few Primarchs who did not bow to his father, instead challenging the Emperor to an eating contest, a drinking contest, and contest of strength. Leman won the first two but failed the third, and submitted to the Emperor, taking control of the VI Legion of the Adeptus Astartes, renamed Vlka Fenryka, the Wolves of Fenris, more commonly translated as the Space Wolves.During the Great Crusade, the Wolves were believed to be superstitious barbarians who destroyed all in their path with utter savagery, but were actually unfettered battlefield analysts who would utterly exterminate any foe without restraint. In short, the Emperor's secret weapon: a Legion designed to kill another Legion. Leman Russ also became a rival of Lion El'Jonson, the Primarch of the Dark Angels, though the two eventually became firm friends. When the Horus Heresy began, Russ and the Wolves were ordered by Malcador the Sigilite to bring Magnus the Red, Primarch of the Thousand Sons, to Terra for charges of sorcery. Russ's orders were altered by Horus, who had already fallen to Chaos, and he was charged with destroying the Thousand Sons. Russ and the Space Wolves destroyed the Thousand Sons home world of Prospero, but took heavy losses in the process, though they still joined the Dark Angels and the Ultramarines in trying to reinforce Terra. After the Emperor ascended the Golden Throne, Leman Russ departed Fenris to find a means to heal the Emperor, promising he would return for the Wolftime, the final battle.
