He was originally a Terran recruit of the Imperial Fists Legion and a veteran of the Terran Unification and of the earliest campaigns of the Great Crusade. Amongst his numerous honours are listed Ummaos, Ur Secondus and Mount Orros. He rose to the rank of Veteran sergeant of one of the very first Phalanx Warder squads established, the role in which he was also so severely wounded in during the battle that saw the Dead Emperors of Onyx Manse vanquished that he had to be interred into a Contemptor Dreadnought.
