The Death Mask of Sanguinius[3]

The Death Mask of Sanguinius is an incredibly life like golden mask, that is said to have been modeled upon the features of the Blood Angels' slain Primarch, Sanguinius[1], and the relic is worn by the Chapter's Commanders.[2]


It contains the Blood Ruby, which is among two sources of the Primarch's unadulterated blood[2], along with the Halo Mortalis, Iron Halo and two adrenal inhaler intakes, which give the Blood Angels' Commanders enhanced respiratory function[3]. The Death Mask of Sanguinius has been incorporated into the armor of the Chapter's current Commander, Dante, and when he is in battle, the relic appears to come to life[1]. The Halo Mortalis also[3] emits a golden halo[1] psycho-terror energy field[3], that strikes terror into the hearts of his foes.[1]
