Andus Hakur was a Veteran Sergeant of the Death Guard during the Great Crusade. Serving under Captain Nathaniel Garro in the 7th Company, Hakur was born on Terra as opposed to Barbarus and had tense relations with figures within his own Legion such as Calas Typhon and Ignatius Grulgor. Hakur frowned down upon Warrior Lodges greatly, scolding Meric Voyen when he found out he was part of one.
Hakur was among the loyalist forces betrayed during the Battle of Isstvan III, but survived the virus bombing of the planet and managed to board the Eisenstein with Garro. Hakur also managed to survive the Eisenstein's turbulent trip back to Luna.
