Inquisitor Horst was born on a planet ruled by an evil Overlord named Alaine de Briant. At an early age he joined a freedom fighter group, quickly rising through the ranks to become their leader as his extraordinary fighting ability showed itself in many battles.

He was not just a good fighter, but had excellent oratory skills as well as great charm, and using these traits he united the rebel factions that were fighting against the Overlord. He fought a brilliant guerrilla campaign against the overlord and eventually, against all the odds, he overthrew the Overlord after almost thirty years of bitter warfare.

When news of his work reached the Administratum, he was quickly inducted into the Inquisition, at a relatively late age.

Several years later, he happened to be on a Squat planet near Armageddon. When the Second War for Armageddon began, he was quickly able to convince the Squat Overlord to send troops to help. As soon as the Warp Storm lifted, Horst and a large army of Squats landed on Armageddon Prime where they quickly pushed the Orks back onto the defensive. After the defeat of the Orks at Tartarus Hive, Horst led a massive assault, forcing the Orks back to the jungle area between the two areas, Armageddon Prime and Armageddon Secundus.
