Tyberos the Red Wake was the presumed commander of the Carcharodons during the Badab War. Certainly he was the member of that sinister and mysterious Chapter that communicated with the other Loyalist commanders during the conflict, speaking in no more than a soft whisper that nevertheless carried with it the promise of certain death. Based on the battle barge Nicor, Tyberos led his terminators in bloody assault after bloody assault, their savagery unmatched in the Badab War.
Never seen outside his archaic suit of Terminator armour, his face, when revealed, was a corpse-white nightmare with half the bones of the face exposed in a bloodless grimace, while his eyes were a soulless, depthless black. Those that witnessed him in combat and lived to tell the tale spoke of him as a blood-splattered killing machine moving almost too fast for the eye to see and leaving nothing but mangled and shredded corpses after his passing, yet acting with precise and deadly intention in combat as if every slaughter was cold and calculated beforehand rather than the product of mere rage.
Tyberos gained a dark fame for his brutal combat prowess and the two unique power weapons with which he carved a path of mangled and shredded corpses through the Secessionist forces. Known as "Hunger" and "Slake" these ancient relic-gauntlets, which combine barbed power blades with an inner maw lined with vicious teeth, are of a pattern and manufacture unknown to the Adepts of Mars.
