You Shall Know No Fear
Blood Angels Assault Marine
Like many of his Battle Brothers from his Chapter, Astramael is handsome, with piercing green eyes, and blonde hair. He is a little taller than most of his peers, but moves with a catlike grace, even in his power armour. He strives for perfection in all that he does, aspiring to emulate the deeds of his Primarch and he expects no less from the Astartes he fights alongside. He can often be found sparring with combat servitors, honing his melee skills to a keen edge.
Astramael has been seconded to the Deathwatch from the 3rd Company of the Blood Angels Chapter. Even among his peers, Astramael’s skill at close quarters combat is notable and there was no doubt in the mind of his Captain that he would be a great benefit to the Deathwatch as an Assault Marine. It was also hoped that out of the many varied encounters he may face while in the Deathwatch, he may find clues that will assist the Sanguinary Priests in their millenia long task of removing the flaw in the Chapter Gene-Seed.
“And of the Assault Marine so do I decree: He shall descend upon the perfidious foe as an Angel of Judgement from on high. Let the jump pack be his wings, and the roar of its engines a hymn of retribution. Let the chainsword be his sceptre of decree, its harsh voice singing joyfully with each and every blow. With it shall the Assault Marine bring bloody retribution to the heretic, the traitor and all alien aggressors who trespass on the Emperor’s domain. So will the Assault Marine be the hunter of warlords and the slayer of kings. His armour shall run slick with the life-blood of the vanquished, and all shall honour his name.” — The teachings of Primarch Roboute Guilliman, the Apocrypha of Skaros
