Haradin was the Grand Master of the Dark Angels Legion's Third Order during the Horus Heresy.[1]

In the aftermath of the Battle of Perditus, the Third Order was assigned by their Primarch Lion El'Jonson to a strike force, led by Seneschal Corswain, that was charged with both hunting down the fleeing Death Guard forces of Captain Typhus and to bring word of the battle to the Space Wolves Legion's Primarch Leman Russ. However, after many months, the strike force could not find any trace of Leman Russ, and as for Typhus, they found only worlds that were left in disarray or that had been destroyed by his touch. During one of the many war councils between the strike force's commanders, unrest began to show about their lack of progress and Haradin voiced that they should instead be pursuing the Death Guard's Primarch, Mortarion. After much arguing, it was finally decided that the strike force would be split off by Orders, each with their own goals to pursue. Corswain would go with Chapter Master Belath's Second Order to continue pursuing Typhus, while the other Orders would travel to nearby Systems to search for the Primarch Leman Russ and to attack any Traitors they came across.[1]

Following the ending of the Horus Heresy, Caliban was destroyed in a civil war between Dark Angels led by their Primarch El'Jonson and the betrayer Luther. In the aftermath of that devastating conflict, the Deathwing was left in tatters, but was immediately reformed to its full strength by Haradin. When the Grand Master later learned of the Fallen Angels, he instigated the reorganization of both the Deathwing and Ravenwing into their current roles of hunting down and capturing the traitorous Dark Angels.[2]
