Day 19 of Advent 2016
A Horus Heresy short story

Granted asylum by his old friend Luther of Caliban, First Captain Typhon of the Death Guard takes time away from the war… to find that a new corruption is spreading on Zaramund.

It’s another step towards what we all know is coming for the Death Guard and Captain Typhon. Is it time that he embraced his destiny as a pawn of the Plague Lord?


Having long been hounded across the galaxy by the Dark Angels, First Captain Typhon of the Death Guard has limped his fleet to sanctuary in Segmentum Obscurus – as a guest of the separatist Luther of Caliban, no less. On the world of Zaramund, long a symbol of brotherhood amongst the Legions, Typhon begins to suspect that a new form of corruption has followed him out of the wider war. Will he embrace it, or escape into the darkness once more?
