Brother Damos was the commander of the 9th Company of the Angels Porphyr Chapter of the Adeptus Astartes. He was well respected as a veteran of three centuries of service to the chapter, under his command the 9th was considered a model of the Devastator doctrine. During the scouring of Hume, a surprise air attack on his position at Hill 236 caught Brother Damos out in the open as he moved about the positions bunkers. The rebel Marauder Bombers smashed the position for hours. Brother Damos' body was recovered but was declared shattered beyond the skill of the Apothecaries to repair. Brother Damos demanded the right to fight on. So his body was placed in stasis and transferred to the Chapter's Monastery where it was laid to rest in the armoured sarcophagus of a Dreadnought. Brother Damos has since given three millennia of service to the chapter.
