While fighting beside the Cadian 8th on the Fortress Moon Helicus Rex, Colour Sergeant Jarran Kell began to suspect Aldrad's reason for joining them, was to simply serve under General Creed. If that was the truly the reason, he could tell Aldrad was disappointed, as during that time Creed had run himself ragged, trying unsuccessfully to convince Cadia's High Command that a Chaos invasion was imminent. However when the Battle for Tyrok Fields began, Aldrad saw Creed at his best, as the General quickly took control of the dismayed Imperial forces and rallied them to victory. Afterwards Aldrad continued to serve with the Cadian 8th and likely died with the Regiment, when it was destroyed defending Cadia during the 13th Black Crusade.
