Targost believed passionately in the role of the warrior-lodge, stating that as genetic constructs employed singularly for war, the Astartes needed a way to form and express their bonds of brotherhood in a way that wasn't constrained by the pressures of duty.[1a] Targost operated as the voice of the lodge, regulating and organising the meetings.[1a] In his role of lodge-master, he was instrumental in the decision to place the wounded Horus into the care of the Serpent Lodge, thus ensuring Horus' damnation.
As a senior officer of the Sons of Horus and one who saw things from the Warmaster's point of view, Targost co-commanded the initial Sons of Horus deployments against the loyalist marines upon Isstvan III.
Targost was blunt in appearance, with a scarred forehead.[1b]
