Lucretius Corvo[4]

Lucretius Corvo was the first Chapter Master of the Novamarines and was originally an Ultramarines Astartes officer, who won great renown fighting the Word Bearers during the Horus Heresy.[1]

Besieged during one battle on the world of Astagar, Corvo and his men held out for six days, before managing to destroy a traitor Warlord Titan and break out. For this act, Corvo was decorated by his Primarch Roboute Guilliman[5] and this decoration would later become a sacred relic to the Novamarines, where it is kept in their Fortress-Monastery.[1]

Corvo is known to have commanded Ultramarines forces during the Battle of Sotha during the Heresy.[2]


After becoming the Chapter Master of the Novamarines, Corvo took part in the Battle of Thessala, during which Roboute Guilliman was mortally wounded by Fulgrim.[3]
