Darhug

Darhug was a Captain in the Iron Warriors Legion and served in the Grand Company of Warsmith Khrossus during the Great Crusade.[1]

When the Horus Heresy began, however, Darhug joined his Warsmith and his Legion in turning upon the Imperium and the Captain was later a part of the Iron Warriors' forces that began making their way to invade Terra. However, when Horus learned that the Primarch Guilliman and the Ultramarines were racing to reach Terra as well, he ordered the Iron Warriors' Primarch, Perturabo, to send his forces to block the Ultramarines' path. Perturabo needed the bulk of his Legion for the invasion of Terra, though, and only spared Khrossus and his Grand Company for the task, though all knew it was a suicide mission with little chance of success. Despite this, Khrossus did not waver and departed for the Carchera System, which the Ultramarines would need to pass through to reach Terra, and the Warsmith vowed he would do everything in his power to prevent the Loyalists from aiding the Emperor.[1]
