Herakon was the oldest natural born child of Dammekos, the tyrant of Lochos on Olympia. He grew up alongside the adopted Perturabo, but often had a tense relationship with the Primarch out of jealousy. Dammekos himself said that while Herakon was eldest he lacked the ability to succeed him as Tyrant because he lacked guile.[1a]

While Perturabo was away on the Great Crusade, Herakon crossed Dammekos and tried to overthrow him. As punishment, Herakon drowned him in a vat of wine.[1b]
