Sagittar Phract - The End of Legends by Greyall Sagittar Phract - The End of Legends by Greyall
Saggitar Phract of the World Eaters, The End of Legends - Shield of the Primarch

Born in Terra, Saggitar Phract was already an extremely respected veteran of the War Hounds by the time Angron was presented to the Legion. Upon learning from Kharn of the Primarch's brutal slaughter of the Hound's most senior officers, Phract, his usual ice-cold self, vowed to teach the Angron the virtues of temperance.

Alas, the old warrior's teachings had no effect on the demigod's personality, but their result was nothing short of miraculous: Angron and Sagittar forged as true a friendship as the scarred Primarch could manage. To outsiders, it would seem the two were nothing more than long-time war comrades, yet some of the other Primarchs understood the impact Phract had had in Angron. Though only in whispered tones, many were of the opinion that the Red Primarch saw in Sagittar a true father figure, who tried to steer him yet respected his authority and his ability to make decisions.

Wether these hushed thoughts reach his ear or he somehow noticed, Angron abruptly stopped bringing Phract to most meetings, instead opting for Kharn, who the Primarch forever respected, not only for making him see the gains in leading the World Eaters, but for having a similar mindset. To this, Phract held no grudge, understanding as he was, and he continued to counsel his Primarch and, as leader of the Devourers - Angron's praetorian guard -, stand at his side on the battlefield.

Phract mastered very early the shield and gladius fighting style as done by the murmillo gladiators of old Roma, and it fit his cold, implacable demeanour like a glove. So great was the veteran's self-control that even the Legion's allegiance to Khorne did not turn Sagittar into a raving killer like the rest of the World Eaters, and the God of Warfare has grown to greatly respect the grizzled warrior, though dreams of subjugating his mind into madness. Still at Angron's side, Phract only enters the battlefield as bodyguard to his Primarch or when ordered a special assignment.

In battle, what is perhaps the oldest World Eater legionnaire alive is nothing short of a blood-freezing wonder. In dire contrast with the maddened charges of his comrades, Phract will advance at a constant pace, a behemoth even near other Terminators. Though apparently oblivious, those who've stood at his side the longest know he his scanning the battlefield for enemy commanders and champions, who he'll charge at frightening speed for his tremendous bulk. Phract absolutely loathes to fight lesser enemies unless they attack him, and will beat them to near-death for their insolence. He is known to duel other leaders inside a circle made from the near-corpses of his foe's squad members. The longer an enemy Commander takes to accept his challenge, the more violently Phract will vanquish him, and, above all, he'll kill any ally who dares to 'aid' him, regardless of rank.

Sagittar Phract still keeps his chain-gladius, 'Warsage', and Angron has gifted him with a piece of Wargear like no other, a shield almost the size of a space marine, made of the brass hide of a great Juggernaut of Khorne, and fit with a chainblade system powered by the beast's frenzied heart. the blades move so fast even a lightning fast slam with often shatter the most prized relic blade of rend open the hardest suit of armour.

Phract has become a legend on the battlefield, the slayer of lords of all races throughout millenia, ever the deliverer of his Primarch's blood-soaked judgement.

First Terminator of the new series, perhaps the closest I've come to have a waking nightmare, when I looked at all the details I wanted to include. But I like him. A lot.

Looks like a Khornate version of Asternion Moloc :P Very badass.

Very nice, well thought out story, but the nitpick in me can't help but point out that Kharn was /always/ Angron's favorite Marine. When Angron was discovered by the Imperium, he refused to lead his legion. One after the other, each captain of the War Hounds legion went to see Angron personally, and attempted to convince him to stay and take his rightful place as leader of the legion, only to fail and be killed by the savage Primarch. By the time Kharn went to see Angron, most of the legion's captains were dead and the rest were considering giving up. However, it would be Kharn who would successfully convince Angron to stay, and thus Angron took a liking to Kharn. So as you can see, Kharn was not only Angron's favorite son, but the very first he actually liked in the first place.

Fluff for Phract has to be rewritten to make it more plausible and less conflicting with the established story. I'll do it when I draw the old guy again, which isn't near but is guaranteed :)

Not gonna lie, I totally want to put him in one of my short stories for my character as a rival. I've been trying to find or make a character that Sword Brother Tyrannus simply can't beat because they are so well matched. This dude, seems awesome and perfect for it.

It shows dude. I even made some quick rules for him for tabletop and made a short narrative of he and my character Tyrannus meeting for the first time. If you're okay with it, I'd seriously like to make him Tyrannus' main nemesis. If you'd like, I could send you the narrative first. It's about Tyrannus, obviously, but Phract shows up and leaves quite the impression.

btw. just something i notice. the skulls trophes on many of your marines are tiny. compare to the guy wearing it.
before u say marines are huge and those are just normal human skulls.
woundnt those skullz belong to slayned warriors of equal skills and power? and usually those are other marines.:P
just saying.

Greyall Featured By Owner Nov 24, 2011
I won't lie there, they should be bigger, and indeed they should, in most cases, belong to other champions. It's just something I struggle with, because whenever I draw bigger skulls and helmet trophies, I find it downscales the character. Then again, so does being a child-slayer...Gah, I have to look into it.
