The Hammer of Iron






Ares Hector

IVth Legion 
78th Grand Battalion
Allegiance: Fedelitas Constantus

Ares Hector was recruited as an adolescent from during the unification wars on Terra. Thought many things are shrouded in mystery from these early days, it is believed that he originates from one of the warlike gun-tribes, blood grieves and Tek-enclaves of the Auro Plateau of Sek-Amrak on ancient Terra. Initiated into the 78th Grand Battalion, he fought his way up through its ranks by dint of excellence and stoic devotion to duty. Ares saw extensive service during the Great Crusade and by the time of the recovery of The Lord of Iron, Perturabo, had assumed command of the 23rd Expeditionary Fleet. However with the Primarchs edict of decimation the 78th Grand Battalions was one of the formations judged wanting and it suffered greatly during the purge of the Legion. Ares survived this but was punished by demotion to the rank of Captain. Following the decimation much of the 78th was sent to garrison Kaloran in continued punishment for their Primarch’s ill-favor. Like a number of IV Legion garrisons and detachments dispersed across the Imperium and all but forgotten, had become almost completely self-sustaining by the end of the Great Crusade, and when the Horus Heresy came, he and his forces was utterly ignorant of their Legion’s betrayal. However Are’s stoic loyalty to the Emperor, The Great Crusade and the Imperium was to be proven time and time again during the dark days of the Heresy. He never forgave or forgot his Primarch’s act of decimation and it was with bitter pride he fought the forces of the Warmaster and his allies.
