Fyger Deflaim, known as the "Master of Dreams", was the leader of one of the many Splintered Chaos Cults, that emerged on Terra following the creation of the Great Rift.[1a]

He was once a Marshal of the Adeptus Arbites and was responsible for nine of Terra's precincts, before he fell to Heresy. This allowed Deflaim's Cult to have access to the Arbites' armories and they emerged to have the most extensive firepower amongst the Splintered. In the wake of the Indomitus Crusade's launch, Deflaim gradually became bolder and conducted raids on Terra by daylight. He also started to hold his seized territory, rather than retreat when confronted by Imperial forces[1a]. However the Splintered's success in defying the Imperium, was only due to being the patrons of the powerful Hexarchy group. The Hexarchy wished to overthrow Lord Commander Guilliman's rule of the Imperium and used their vast resources to ensure the survival of the Splintered Cults. Once the Cults had wrecked enough havoc, and started to turn Terra's population against Guilliman and the ruling High Lords, the Hexarchy began their coup to seize control. They then unleashed the Minotaurs Chapter upon the Cults, in order to gain the favor of Terra's population and show that they and not Guilliman, would restore order to the Throne World. The Splintered quickly suffered horrific losses at the Minotaur's hands, after the Hexarchy gave the Chapter the Cults' locations. With their defeat seemingly eminent, Deflaim rallied the remaining Splintered forces to him for a final stand in the Cathedral of the Emperor Deified and most did so[1b] - with the exception of the Lachrymosa's Cult[1c]. Despite their mustered forces, however, the Splintered were easily killed by the Minotaurs, who had been told in advance of the Cults' plan by the Hexarchy.[1b]
