Captain Cortez[1]

Alessio Cortez was a Captain of the Crimson Fists. He was known to instill a sense of stubborn pride in his men and to carry on figthing no matter what, ignoring wounds that would even stop a Space Marine.[1]

After the formation of the Great Rift, Cortez went missing after fighting Eldar Corsairs. His current whereabouts are unknown, but his old friend Pedro Kantor is convinced he’s still alive.[3]. He has since been replaced by Isidore Haleous.[2]
