In 901.M41, during the Battle of Kornovin, Draigo would become Supreme Grand Master of the Grey Knights after the Daemon Prince Mortarion killed his predecessor, Geronitan. The act made Draigo fly into a rage, who assaulted the Daemon Primarch and was only able to defeat him by uttering the true name the Emperor had originally intended for him. The Primarch's body was shattered by this and Draigo carved his predecessor's name into his heart - an insult Mortarion has never forgotten, as his spirit is now recuperating in the Immaterium), where he prepares to kill Draigo once and for all.[2b].
However, after a second confrontation with M'kar on Acralem,[2a] Draigo has been cursed to a life trapped within the Warp, doomed to walk within the Realm of Chaos itself. To remain pure while constantly assailed by Chaos shows fortitude and personal strength that is beyond measure. He has undertaken many great exploits within the Warp: slaying the great Bloodthirster Kar'Voth, setting fire to the jungles of Nurgle's domain, defeating the six chosen Daemonettes of Slaanesh, the Six Sisters, and destroying the fortress of the Lord of Change M'Kachan.[2c] He also appeared to battle alongside the Dark Angels in the Pandorax Campaign.[Needs Citation]
But while Draigo lives, he will prevail and one day, he will return. In 999.M41, Draigo returned alone to Acralem to free it from M'kar, hoping to end the Chapter's ancient feud with the Daemon.
