Edessan by birth, by the time of the Nurth campaign Bronzi was a veteran Hetman who had served the Geno Five-Two for decades. He was regarded by his superiors, including his uxor, Honen Mu, as one of the best field officers in the brigade despite his cheek.[1a] Bronzi led the Jokers company and was close friends with Peto Soneka, Hetman of the Dancers company.[1a]
Bronzi narrowly escaped the raiding of Visages in a transport vehicle, along with Hetman Dimiter Shiban. Shiban was killed by an Alpha Legion Astartes, while Bronzi was later revealed to have been recruited as an Alpha Legion operative.[1c]
The last time Hurtado Bronzi was seen, he was being carried off the Imperial Flagship Blamires, having been tortured for information by Lord Commander Teng Namatjira's Lucifer Black Companions.[1b]. Before the Alpha Legion's attack on the flagship, a team led by Peto Soneka was sent to free Bronzi from captivity, as a personal favour from Primarch Alpharius.
