It had only been a month since that treacherous battle on Isstvan IIIbut he had already developed a hatred for most of his former friends, theyall followed the Warmaster.Loken was sure he would have died if it hadn’t been for the Blood Angels.They were on a routine scouting mission when they noticed that there wasno vox-chatter from the planet. They came in closer and realised that theplanet had been virus bombed, they were brave enough to land and explorethe planet. It was fate that brought them to the Choral City, they scouted
around for a bit and then they found, under a pile of rubble from acollapsed bunker, Loken, and in various other places other surviving Sonsof Horus, although they had now repainted their armour and retaken thename the ‘Luna Wolves’. The apothecaries aboard the scouting ship hadhelped them cling onto life until they got back to the Red Tear.So now Loken sat there awaiting the moment when they arrived at Terra.The ship started to jolt as if there was turbulence, but the ship’s stabilisersshould have counteracted this.The ship’s inter-vox system started up, “There appears to be a violent warpstorm. Would all personnel please prepare for emergency warp exit.”This was not good, but Loken supposed that they had been lucky to getthis far with the Warmaster having all but total control over the warp.Loken looked out of the window of his makeshift chamber and saw thedazzling colours of the warp stop and the normal blackness of spacereappear. It took him a few seconds to realise where they were. He wassure that the entire Blood Angels fleet felt the same sense of terror as hedid. He knew the planet that they were approaching, everybody aboard thatship did. It was Murder. Chapter 2The battle between the Megarachnid and the Space Marines had beenfierce. The Blood Angels had been the first to discover Murder and theentirety of the fleet sent down from the Misericord had been wiped outleaving only a repeated help signal with the captain reporting what washappening over a period of days. The final thing he said on that recordinggave that planet its name, “This. World. Is. Murder.”The Luna Wolves and the Emperors Children came to their aid to late butstill fought a violent war with the Megarachnid, giant eight-legged insectsmainly, but some flew or were towering building machines. But it was notthe Megarachnid that Loken feared, but the Interex.The Interex were part of the human race that left Terra to colonise thegalaxy. They had also fought the Megarachnid but decided not to wipethem out but to place them on a prison world with no form of spacetransportation. The Interex had also formed an alliance with a simianspecies called the Kinebrach who brought with them dangerous weaponssuch as the Anathame which had wounded the Warmaster and caused himto turn against the Emperor. Loken almost completely blamed the Interexand Kinebrach for this treachery, even if Erebus had stolen the Anathame.
The Blood Angels did not know of the Interex and Sanguinius had to bewarned about them and the threat they posed.
