Volk was an Iron Warrior and commander of the 786th Grand Flight during the Horus Heresy.

A skilled Lightning Crow pilot during the Great Crusade Volk established something of a friendship with fellow Luna Wolves pilot Argonis. By the Heresy Volk was fighting a bitter war on Krade against a renewed loyalist offensive led by the Ultramarines. The situation was interrupted by Argonis, who arrived as an emissary of Horus ordering Perturabo to find Angron and muster at Ullanor for the drive on Terra. Volk was disheartened to see a planet he had fought so bitterly for abandoned, and led a daring raid into the loyalist lands the night before they were due to evacuate in order to bleed the enemy one last time.[1a]

Due to his close relationship with Argonis, Perturabo kept Volk by his side during their journey to find Angron. On Sarum, the group met with the Daemon Sa'ra'am which revealed that Angron was on the world of Deluge. However Sa'ra'am broke free of its bindings and possessed the body of Volk, transforming him into the first Obliterator. It's unknown if any essence of Volk survived this process, but the creature went on to fight alongside Perturabo, Forrix, and Argonis on Deluge against Angron and his crazed World Eaters. Volk survived the battle of Deluge and was brought to the muster on Ullanor.[1b]

During the Siege of Terra Volk, now known as Volk-Sa'ra'ram, worked with Dark Mechanicum Magos Inar Satarael to introduce a Daemonic computer virus into the systems of the Lion's Gate Spaceport.[2]
