= ON THE SUBJECT OF RENEGADE SORCERER ASROMIAMUN =
= BEGIN LOG =
Heresy is not always a damning thing. Redemption is possible, as former Thousand Son Asromiamun has proven.
After slaying Princeps Altair Astor III of House Astor and unwittingly creating the creature that is Lord Leviathan, Sorcerer Asromiamun, Master of Shadows, realized his folly. He had been fighting alongside his brethren at the Burning of Prospero, and fell with his brothers during the Horus Heresy. He realized that he had been fighting on the wrong side for ten thousand years. Asromiamun then stripped his armor of its blue coloring, restoring his original red livery in honor of the Emperor.
Coincidentally, pre-Heresy Thousand Sons coloring resembles that of our own Crimson Knights, and in the heat of battle, all our Knights see is a strangely ornamented battle-brother fighting alongside them.
Asromiamun now fights for the Emperor, interfering with Chaos warbands in the area, taking special pleasure in striking down the Traitors of Leviathan and the Fallen Sixth, as if in repentance for his misdeeds against the forces of Ragnarus. Asromiamun can occasionally be seen striking at the heart of Chaotic warriors, alongside the Crimson Knights, my own Skitarii or House Astor, and he fights particularly fiercely in striking down Word Bearers and Thousand Sons armies who attack us.
Notably, Asromiamun has never been sighted fighting against an Alpha Legion warband. The reason for this has never been uncovered.
Concerns have been raised by Chapter Master Sangarinus of the Crimson Knights, Captain Pugius of the Seventh Company of the same, Princeps Astor of House Astor and several of my own magi that I did not discuss Asromiamun's retinue in the initial log as written, so I shall describe them now.
Asromiamun has four Sorcerers under his command; each one commands a small honor guard, and specializes in their own form of sorcery. Asromiamun himself possesses no honor guard, and specializes in the banishment of daemons and direct manipulation of the Warp. In order to make themselves less noticeable by Imperial forces, none of them bring their honor guard when fighting alongside the Imperium.
Sorcerer Kazem is Asromiamun's interrogator and deliverer of pain. He is sent by Asromiamun to relatively clandestine locations to bring the Emperor's Light to them. Sorcerer Kazem has an honor guard consisting of nine Rubricae, and Kazem wears a set of relatively standard Mk IV "Maximus" armor. Kazem specializes in torture and mind-reading.
Sorcerer Azghar is Asromiamun's foremost lieutenant, and his advisor. Azghar personally specializes in the manipulation of time, as well as the nullification of the effects of the Warp. Sorcerer Azghar wears a set of Tartaros-pattern Terminator armor, and has four Scarab Occult Terminators - Thousand Sons Tartaros-pattern-wearing Rubricae - as his retinue.
Sorcerer Ezmael is the youngest Sorcerer in Asromiamun's retinue, as he was a mere battle-brother when the Rubric of Ahriman was deployed; all four of the others were Sergeants at minimum. Ezmael is hot-blooded, and channels this into his sorcery, causing his targets to exsanguinate rather painfully. His retinue consists of his former squadmates, and he wears modified Achean-pattern armor.
Sorcerer Farzin, formerly known as the Lightning King, is responsible for overseeing the upkeep of every Rubric Marine in the warband. Farzin is unique in that he has reverse-engineered the sorcery of the Vlka Fenryka, and utilizes their powers as if they were his own. He carries great respect, and fear, for the Rout. He wears Tartaros-pattern Terminator armor, the very same as Azghar, and has a similar honor guard.
