Asmodai is the Master Interrogator-Chaplain of the Dark Angels.

History

One of the oldest and most successful Interrogator-Chaplains in the Chapter's history, he is also renowned as one of the most dark and sinister members of the Unforgiven. Suspected Fallen have learned that it is better to die than to fall into Asmodai's hands.[2]

In his long career, he has only been able to make two members of The Fallen repent. But not many can resist his evil craft, and it is said that his enemies would rather die than fall into his hands, as he is rumoured to be able to keep a victim alive for weeks on end while undergoing horrific torture.[1] Such is Asmodai's brutality and excess that even Azrael has had to counteract and cover up his actions multiple times over the Chapter's history.[3]

It was Asmodai who ordered the slaughter of all the new recruits from Narcium because of their lackluster answers to his questions. Upon hearing laughter in the halls of the The Rock, Asmodai placed the penance of silence until the entire 7th Company. However despite his brutal and disciplinary streaks, he is nonetheless an effective combatant and inspiring leader. He famously led the Dark Angels against the traitors of Rhun's Palace and inspired an impressive stand when his forces were surrounded by Daemons on the world of Amity.[3] As with all Interrogator-Chaplains, he carries a weapon known as the Blades of Reason, a device used to inflict torment.
