Into the Heart of Darkness
Jarl of For, VIth Legion
Hvarl Red-Blade had a reputation as a dourly humourous and often choleric-temperamental warrior, whose greatest skills was to be found in the din of war and whose battlefield cunning was something of a legend.
Master of his Great Company for more than five decades at the time of the Razing of Prospero, he was a veteran warlord as renowned for his scourging tactics as he was for encouraging the taking of heads from the enemy fallen as a form of competition among his warriors. Each gory trophy was to be accompanied by a tale of how it was taken.
Though considered volatile and perhaps a little insane by his fellow Jarls and Thegns, Hvarl’s often striking insights into a foe’s plans and motivations made his voice one that was still well-respected in the Einherjar, while in battle his savagery was counted on by his Primarch to leave nothing alive in his Great Company’s wake.
With rumors of human worlds resisting Imperial Compliance in the Ouroboros Constelation due to psychic influence, Russ sent Jarl Hvarl of For, to take the heads of these psychic tyrants.
