Before the Horus Heresy, Megron won many glories for the Imperium, including conquering the world of Eydolim. However following the defeat of Horus, Megron sought to undo what he had wrought and instead showed allegiance to the Chaos Gods. His greatest work took place upon the Cathedral World of Rhodax where for three months the Word Bearers fought against the hastily gathered warriors of the Imperium. During the battle Megron toppled a forty-foot tall statue of Saint Petch, a beloved Imperial saint to whom the world looked for salvation, and piled the bodies of dead Imperial Guard around it to form a blasphemous offering to Chaos. As the Imperial Guard attacked once more, now bolstered by the Inquisition, Megron stood atop his Chaotic shrine and roared his devotion to the Dark Gods. In return they rewarded his loyalty by changing and mutating his body until it became the towering form of a Daemon Prince. Megron tore the marbled blade of Saint Petch free and the power of change also flowed through it, corrupting the once holy relic into a weapon of cruel destruction. Megron then strode from the Basilica to continue fighting for his dark masters.
In late M41, he would lead his warband known as The Foresworn along with many other Chaos allies against the world of Eydolim in the Battle of Eagle Gate. Nearly emerging victorious, he was banished to the Warp after being stabbed through the chest by the Power Sword of Ultramarines Captain Cato Sicarius.[2b]
