|Ambiguous Term? This article is about the Space Marine. For other uses of Esau, see Esau (disambiguation).|
Esau was one of the last generation of Space Marines in the Chapter to have been recruited from the planet Sotha before it fell to the Tyranids of Hive Fleet Kraken. His cousin, Lacovis, was amongst those killed in the defence of the Giant's Coffin on Miral Prime.
Following the destruction of Sotha, Esau served as a member of Squad Cassander, taking part in the evacuation of Chapter gene-seed from the planet Brakur IV after the planet came under attack from the Tyranids. He won renown for killing a Tyranid Harridan, single-handedly saving both the gene-seed and the survivors of the combat drop.
