Black Library Description

"Blood Angels Brother Kravin, grievously injured in battle with a monstrous enemy, fights to return to his battle-brothers before his body fails. Pushing his transhuman form to its very limits, Kravin knows that he must return what he carries to the Chapter - he cannot die until he delivers his legacy." [1]


Mortally wounded and fighting the urges of the Black Rage and Red Thirst, Sanguinary Priest Kravin of the Blood Angels escapes collapsing catacombs in order to return his blood to his Chapter.[2]


Awaking in a now-collapsing network of catacombs, a Sanguinary Priest, Brother Kravin, determines to escape and do his duty by returning his blood to his Chapter. Barely able to move due to a plethora of injuries and struggling to escape to the surface, the dying Kravin must preserve his blood,[2a] whilst denying the urges of the Red Thirst and the Black Rage. Distant explosions driving him to a run[2b], Kravin reaches the surface and collapses in the arms of one of his battle-brothers, having performed his duty of preservation.[2c]
