Ancaeus is a Sergeant in the Blood Angels Chapter and is an experienced leader.
Once considered a candidate for the Sanguinary Cult, Ancaeus is devoted to his duty and holds his obligations to his Chapter, his Battle Brothers, and the Imperium higher than any amount of personal glory. Ancaeus believes individual honor is secondary to the safety of the Sergeant's men and mission, and this brings him into conflict with his formerly close friend Sergeant Kazarion. He was later serving with a fleet aboard the Sword of Baal, when its ships were enveloped by the birth of the Great Rift. The giant Warp Storm damaged the Strike Cruiser and killed many of its crew, before only the Sword of Baal managed to escape back to Realspace.
Ancaeus was among the Blood Angels who survived the journey, when the Strike Cruiser found itself stranded above the world Niades. Soon after their arrival, however, a high priority transmission from the world reached the Sword of Baal. Due to the loss of so many of the Strike Cruiser's Blood Angels, its Captain, Orpheo, decided to investigate the transmission on his own and descended to Niades. However after he arrived, the Captain was set upon by Genestealers and the Sword of Baal lost contact with Orpheo. This prompted Ancaeus, Kazarion and most of the surviving Blood Angels to begin searching Niades for the missing Captain.
Ancaeus is a character in the Angels of Death (Animated Series).
