Ishidur Ossuros was once thought to be the only Legion Master of the Blood Angels Legion, who led them from the War of Unification until they discovered their Primarch Sanguinius on Baal.

However in late M30, examinations of the Legion's battle records showed that Ossuros died numerous times, only to reappear and lead his Legion once again. It was then discovered that the Legion's fallen Captains were consumed by their followers in a cannibalistic ritual, that was used to preserve their hard-won skills and experience. The Blood Angels Lieutenants who took part in the ritual, then traditionally honoured their Captain by taking his name. Thus explaining how Ossuros lived on, long after his original death.[1]
