Guain is a Fallen Angel who is among those that now loyally serve their returned Primarch Lion El'Jonson[1a], as the Risen.[1b]

History

He held the rank of Knight-Sergeant, when Guain lost his right arm in the the Dark Angels' second engagement on Karkasarn, during the Great Crusade. The rank of Knight-Captain was then later bestowed upon Guain by Commander Luther while on Caliban, just prior to its Destruction at the end of the Horus Heresy. He emerged into Realspace millennia later, and eventually became the commander of Echo Station and the leader of the Fallen and humans that lived there. The Space Station would have dealings with the pirate fleet led by the Fallen Borz, but this would not stop the pirate leader from stealing Echo Station's supplies in order to repair his fleet. Shortly after the theft, though, Borz returned and Guain had the Space Station's weapons lock on to the pirate fleet. By then, however, Borz had pledged to serve the Dark Angels' returned Primarch Lion El'Jonson, who requested that the Fallen aid him in defending the embattled Imperium. This in turn, led Borz to tell the Primarch of Guain and the Fallen he commanded on Echo Station.[1a]

After an angry Guain began yelling at the thieving Borz for daring to return, interrupted and made his presence known. A shocked Guain refused to belive the Primarch had returned, but Borz confirmed it and asked him to allow El'Jonson to meet with Echo Station's Fallen Angels. Guain agreed to this meeting, but he still felt anger towards the Primarch, as he believed El'Jonson was responsible for starting the Dark Angel's civil war, that destroyed Caliban. This was shared by many of the Space Station's Fallen, but it was also mixed with weariness, that the Primarch sought to kill them for their actions in the war. However El'Jonson would refute this upon his arrival at Echo and claimed he had no wish to reopen the wounds of the past by placing blame for what occurred. The Primarch then asked for their help in saving the embattled Imperium and was even accompanied by other Fallen who had agreed to aid him. If they refused, however, then El'Jonson said he would leave and not bother them again. Guain's Fallen would then voice their their long-held grievances towards their Primarch and question why they would save the decrepit Imperium, that had regressed so far from what it once was. El'Jonson simply explained that the faultless people of the Imperium, still deserved to be defended and not left to be preyed upon by Humanity's enemies.[1a]

The Fallen Angel Lamor then asked what foe was the Primarch currently fighting and El'Jonson replied that it was the Ten Thousand Eyes Warband. Upon hearing that they faced the forces of the corrupted Fallen Seraphax, Lamor immediately agreed to fight by the Primarch's side. Guain agreed to do so for the same reason and by the end of the meeting, the rest of Echo Station's Fallen had agreed to follow El'Jonson.[1a]
