Khrossus

Khrossus was a Warsmith in the Iron Warriors Legion during the Great Crusade and took part in the Meratara Cluster Campaign.[1]

The Crusade's battles, however, made Khrossus disillusioned with the Emperor and the purpose of the Imperium. He came to believe that all the suffering the Iron Warriors had been stricken with was pointless and the Great Crusade was a lie, that it simply destroyed one set of cultures in order to replace them with another. Because of this, Khrossus joined his Legion in turning upon the Imperium and he was later a part of the Iron Warriors' forces that began making their way to invade Terra. However, when Horus learned that the Primarch Guilliman and the Ultramarines were racing to reach Terra as well, he ordered the Iron Warriors' Primarch Perturabo, to send his forces to block the Ultramarines' path. Perturabo needed the bulk of his Legion for the invasion of Terra, though, and only spared Khrossus and the forces under his command, though all knew it was a suicide mission with little chance of success. Despite this, Khrossus did not waver and departed for the Carchera System, which the Ultramarines would need to pass through to reach Terra, with the Warsmith vowing he would everything in his power to prevent the Loyalists from aiding the Emperor.[1]
