Irthu Haemotalion was the Master of the Administratum and a High Lord of Terra, during the fifth year of the Thirteenth Black Crusade.[1] Serving as the primus inter pares of the High Lords, Haemotalion was a cold and ruthless man who nonetheless was perhaps the greatest intellect of the High Lords and a master of numbers and political procedure.[1b] He was a key player in the opposition of the attempts by Chancellor of the Imperial Council Lev Tieron's to push through a Dissolution act that would free the Adeptus Custodes from their vows on Terra.[1a]

In the aftermath of the Noctis Aeterna and the Second Battle of Terra, Haemotalion became a nervous wreck and partially blinded. He resented Roboute Guilliman returning to lead the Imperium as its Lord Commander and conspired with Lev Tieron and the other High Lords to limit the Primarch's power. While discussing his plan with Tieron, Haemotalion expressed his disdain for the Primarchs as a whole, considering them fratricidal monsters who ripped the galaxy apart in their feuds. He feared that if Guilliman had his way, the Imperium would become bogged down in a new massive war.[1c]
