Nykona Sharrowkyn was a Battle brother of the Raven Guard Legion during the Horus Heresy. Incredibly talented he is able to "Wraith-slip" and can literally evade light, and walks instinctively in shadow, this gives him an almost ghost like ability to infiltrate [2b] . He holds the incredible accolades of being one of few beings to shoot a Primarch in the head with a Sniper Rifle[2a] and survive but also besting Lucius the Eternal twice in sword combat.[2d][2e]

Istvaan V

He was deployed to Istvaan V with the rest of his Legion and during the Drop Site Massacre was wounded by traitors' bolter fire. After being seriously wounded he was rescued by fellow loyalist legionnaire Sabik Wayland from the Iron Hands Legion. Sharrowkyn and Wayland escaped the massacre aboard one of the Iron Hands' Storm Eagles and joined the decimated remains of the Iron Hands.[2a]

At some point during the Heresy, Sharrowkyn, accompained by Wayland, was deployed to the Forge World of Cavor Sarta to recover the Kryptos machine. During this mission he killed one of the Word Bearers who was trying to save and hide one of the Kryptos.[1]:

With the Kryptos, Loyalist commanders were able to finally access the Traitors’ coded communications and allowing them to see their arranged meetings. Sharrowkyn remained with the Iron Hands ship Sisypheum and was inserted on to Hydra Cordatus, to intercept the meeting of the traitor Primarchs Fulgrim and Perturabo. After learning of Fulgrim's intentions to enter the Eye of Terror and recover the Angel Exterminatus, he and his partner Sabik Wayland acted as a sniper pair and managed to shoot Fulgrim in the head. Escaping two legions and returning to the Sisypheum, the decision is made to intercede in the traitors plan to acquire the unknown xenos weapon, taking them to the dead eldar world of Iydris.[2a]

After a disastrous experiment[2c], the Sisypheum is boarded by both the Emperors Children and Iron Warriors. This is the first time Sharrowkyn crosses swords with Lucius and bests him in combat slicing open Lucius's face. He was unable to deliver a killing blow as the battle carried them away from each other. [2d]

A reckoning then took place on the planet itself, when Nykona sought out Lucius and isolated him before swooping down to attack. Sharrowkyn bests him and plunges both of his gladii through his neck and chest piercing both hearts killing him and leaves his cadaver on the planet.[2e]. Somehow Fabius Bile recovers Lucius's body and revives or re-incarnates him the process is not clear but the result is Lucius returns to life.[2f]
