Ancient Iocles is an Ironclad Dreadnought in the Crimson Fists Chapter, who aided his Battle Brothers in fighting the vast Ork horde which attacked them shortly after the Great Rift's creation. However, the Chapter was still suffering from the wounds and losses they had suffered in their recent victorious battle with the Daemon Prince Rhaxor and weeks later they began to be overwhelmed by the Orks. Seeing that they had no chance of surviving on their own, Chapter Master Pedro Kantor sent out a plea for aid, as now only a few scattered groups of Crimson Fists remained. Kantor commanded one of the largest groups of Crimson Fists remaining and shortly after he sent out his message, they began to be pursued by a horde of Orks led by Warboss Ripfist Hakmaw. Kantor's group was vastly outnumbered and was forced to constantly retreat until they reached New Rynn City and could no longer escape from the Warboss. Ripfist's horde soon swarmed their position and in the battle that followed, the Crimson Fists suffered horrific losses and were nearly destroyed. However, their salvation arrived in the form of Crimson Fists Primaris Space Marine reinforcements, led by Primaris Captain Gauvian. Having heard Kantor's plea for aid, Lord Commander Guilliman had dispatched the Primaris Marines from the Indomitus Crusade and they immediately struck a deadly blow against Ripfist's horde. With their spirits now lifted, with the sudden appearance of their new Battle Brothers, Iocles and what remained of Kantor's command charged at the Orks and by working together, the two groups of Crimson Fists killed the Warboss and defeated his horde.[1]
