Agamon

Agamon was a House Taranis Knight[1a], who took part in the Great Crusade[1b] and Horus Heresy.[1a]

He was present on Mars when the Horus Heresy began and the Dark Mechanicum caused a civil war to erupt on his Homeworld. By then, House Taranis' Lord Commander Verticorda considered Agamon to be both among one of best of the House's Knights and among the most sublime warriors he had seen. As war enveloped Mars, House Taranis remained loyal to the Imperium and were among those who fought to defend Adept Koriel Zeth's Magma City Forge from the Traitors. However the attacking forces heavily outnumbered the Loyalists and Magma City would soon begin to fall to the Dark Mechanicum. Now with no hope of victory or escape, the surviving Knights of House Taranis agreed to begin a suicidal charge to kill Ambassador Melgator, who led the Traitors' forces. Agamon, Yelsic, Stator and both Lord Commanders Verticorda and Caturix, charged at their foes and were immediately swarmed by them. He was the first to die, after scores of suicidal Dark Mechanicum warriors rushed in close and detonated explosives against Agamon's Knight suit.[1a]
