Nihilus (Dreadnought)

Targetdrone.gif This article is about the Dreadnought. For other uses of Nihilus, see Nihilus (disambiguation).

Nihilus is an all but unstoppable Black Shield Venerable Dreadnought, that serves in the Deathwatch as part of the garrison of Watch Fortress Talasa Prime.[1]

His true name was last known by the, now long dead, Techmarine that inducted him into the Deathwatch and by taking the meaningful name Nihilus, the Dreadnought has ensured his identity will remain anonymous. Because of this, he remains an enigma to his fellow Deathwatch Battle Brothers on Talasa Prime, but he is still enormously respected for his battle wisdom and indomitable prowess in battle.[2b] Nihilus is currently serving as part of the Deathwatch strike force led by Captain Artemis and is aiding him in fighting the Harlequin forces led by Farseer Eldrad Ulthran on the moon of Port Demesnus.[2a]
