- Lieutenant Volusad Thassius
- Primaris Techmarine Vitarian
- Ultramarines Sergeant Goran
A competent, dependable, and level-headed officer, Lt. Thassius now commands the demi-company of the Ultramarines Second Battle Company. He worked his way up the ranks as an Impulsor operator and feels most at home with the pulse of gravitic plates beneath his boots and within the close confines of a battle tank. Commanding the Repulsor Executioner allows the Chapter to exploit his capabilities as an innovative and dangerous armour commander. With the knowledge of the ancient Standard Template Construct possibly falling into Xenos or Traitor hands, he would rather see it destroyed. But he is not ready to resign the Imperium’s legacy to that fate without a concerted fight.
Fascinated by machines of all types from a young age, Vitarian’s propensity for all things mechanical did not subside when he was elevated to the ranks of the Adeptus Astartes. He leapt at the chance to train on Mars with the Adeptus Mechanicus and would be an avid devotee of the Machine God, if he believed in such things. As it is, he is much more at ease communing with machine spirits rather than his fellow Space Marines. He has a specialist’s touch and is often able to coax performance from machinery that exceeds specifications. Taciturn, he keeps the company of machinery, ever trying to perfect the symbiotic relationship between man and machine. He currently serves as the Enginseer of the Ultramarines Repulsor Executioner Fortitudinis Caerulus, under the command of Lt. Thassius.
Sergeant Goran is the current pilot and main operator of the Fortitudinis Caerulus Repulsor Executioner tank. He and his tank (because he does think of it as his) hail from the Ultramarines Sixth Company and not the Second Company, for they are the caretakers of the chapter’s main battle tanks. He has a special affinity for working with the tank’s machine spirit and takes great pleasure in nimbly moving so large a vehicle through enemy fire to deliver a killing blow.
- Death Guard Champion Dolgoth Sepk
- Death Guard Chaos Lord Fecrustus Spute
Dolgoth Sepk is a Champion in the Death Guard’s 5th Company, known as the Poxmongers. He is not an overly ambitious person choosing instead to wallow slothfully in the blessings of Grandfather Nurgle’s gifts. However, whenever presented with the opportunity to impede or frustrate the efforts of his corpse-worshipping brethren, he will rise to the occasion and can be counted on to conduct his mission sheerly out of pure spite. If he can damage the Ultramarines in any way, he will. He undertakes the current mission to retrieve the Standard Template Construct with great zeal, for it means an accelerated path to the conquest of worlds in the heart of Ultramar and dealing a hammer blow to the so-called loyalists there.
Chaos Lord Fecrustus Spute views himself as one of the favoured of Nurgle, but perhaps ranks himself too high. He will ingratiate himself to anyone in Grandfather’s service if he thinks it will further his cause to rise in favour. He is even subservient to daemons, like Ku’gath Plaguefather, though in this case, he understands the daemon has special friends to strike at the heart of Ultramar and possibly the Primarch Roboute Guilliman himself. Spute will take any action to strike at the Imperium of the False Emperor.
