A long-serving member of the Invictarii formation, Daemarion was promoted to the rank of Centurion scant weeks before the cataclysmic series of events that would become known as the Calth atrocity. Ultimately, this promotion would save Daemarion's life; his duties to Tetrarch Amyntas placing him away from the Veridia system during the latter phases of the Calth Conjunction.
In the wake of the planet-wide evacuation of Calth, his command cadre was assigned to serve alongside the partially-decimated XVIth Company. Legion records state that Daemarion's charge was to temporarily bolster the XVIth Company‚Äôs fighting strength and similarly act as both aide and adviser for Captain Argania and his senior commanders, whilst the XVIth conducted operations to blunt the so called 'Shadow Crusade' that was carving a path of ruination across the Five Hundred Worlds. This would prove to be an assignment fraught with unseen difficulties, especially given the appearance of a silent divide between those of the XIIIth who had fought the treacherous Word Bearers at Calth and those among their number now considered "unmarked".
In battle, Daemarion wields an arcane power-spear; utilising a mode of combat similar to that of the ancient Hellenic Leagues of old Earth. Ever eager to prove his fighting prowess, he would often be found in the vanguard of a shield-phalanx, demonstrating his talent for blade-work with murderous efficiency.
Panoply of War:
1. Artificer-wrought powered armour: A heavily modified set of artificer plate; Daemarion's armour incorporates aesthetic elements from several contemporary armour patterns - that of the 'Corvus' and 'Crusade' types being the most prominent. The armour's motive functions and articulations have also been enhanced, allowing for increased levels of agility and speed, although such unsanctioned modifications have been known to stress the armour's kinetic output generators.
2. Astartes boarding shield: The shield was commissioned on Daemarion's behalf, upon his induction into the higher echelons of Legion Command. Of particular note is that it has been crafted it in the style of an 'escutcheon', as opposed to the 'scutum' shape more commonly associated with XIIIth Legion Breachers. The shield's application and combat statistics remain comparable to that of its more orthodox kin.
3. Power-spear 'Olyndikos': This relic-weapon is thought to have been found within a sealed techno-arcana vault during the mass geo-excavation of Anuaris and later given over to the XIIIth as a tribute of arms. The weapon's potent disruption field generator, combined with Daemarion's genehanced strength allows him to wield Olyndikos with lethal effect and he is able to effectively engage the most heavily armoured opponents.
4. Cybernetic implants: The legacy of a head wound he suffered during the Glacciar extermination campaign. The bionic eye functions in a similar manner to the "heads-up display" found on most Astartes-issue helms. Furthermore, it allows for full augury and spectroscopic scanning, as well as direct interfacing with the Legion's Command and Control network.
