Galatan, a Space Marine of the Ultramarines chapter, took part in the Corinthian Crusade in 698.M41. By this time he was Chapter Ancient, Bearer of the Banner of Macragge. He briefly dropped the banner when his arm was chopped off by Warboss Skargor. While Skargor was distracted trying to break the banner with his Power Klaw, Ancient Galatan drove his Power Sword through the back of Skargor's head, killing him and finally breaking the spirit of the defence. Galatan died of his wound from this encounter. However it is said that the banner still did not fall, rallying the troops to finally defeat the Orks.
