Angron on the battlefield..jpg

Each time I wage war against worlds that threaten the Imperium's advance, there comes another time I am told to conquer peaceful worlds that wish only to be left alone. I am told to destroy whole civilizations and call it liberation. I am told to demand millions of men and women from these new worlds, to make them take up arms in the Emperor's hordes, and I am told to call this a tithe, or recruitment, because we are all too scared of the truth. We refuse to call it slavery.

I am loyal, the same as you. I am told to bathe my legion in the blood of innocents and sinners alike, and I do it, because it is all that's left for me in this life. I do these things, and I enjoy them, not because we are moral, or right - or loving souls seeking to enlighten a dark universe - but because all I feel are the Butcher's Nails hammered into my brain.

~ Angron to Leman Russ, prior to their confrontation

You kept that mule Kor Phaeron. Russ kept his kin-friends. The Lion kept Luther. Humans - brothers and foster fathers - saved and raised into Legion ranks. But not me. Not Angron, no. Did the Emperor teleport his gold-wrapped Custodians down to help me and my army? No. Did he free the War Hounds and order them to battle, fight alongside me? No. Did he save my brothers and sisters the way he spared and honoured the Lion's closest kin? The way he honoured Kor Phaeron? No, no and no. No mercy for Angron. Angron the Oathbreaker. Angron the Betrayer.

I want something from you, Khârn. Hnnh. Take your axe. Take your brothers. Kill three hundred souls on the thrall decks. Three hundred of them. Take their skulls. Take their skulls, Khârn. Build me a throne.


"Wiry, copper-red hair curled away from a high brow, pale eyes sat deep behind cheekbones that angled down like axe-strokes to an aquiline nose and a broad, thin-lipped mouth. It was the face of a general to follow unto death, the face of a teacher at whose feet the wise would fight to sit, the face of a king made for the adoration of worlds: the face of a primarch. And rage made it the face of a beast. Rage pulsed and distorted the features like a tumour breaking out from the skull beneath. It made the eyes into yellow, empty pits, debased the proud lines of brow and jaw, peeled the lips back from the teeth."
- Khârn's description of Angron

Angron Thal'kr ('Child of the Mountain'), sometimes called the Red Angel, and originally as Angronius of Nuceria, Lord of the Red Sand, is the Primarch of the World Eaters. He was the most bloody-handed and savage of the Primarchs, being raised on the brutal world of Nuceria, fighting as a gladiator slave and having his aggression enhanced by surgical implants known as the Butcher's Nails. When Horus began his rebellion, Angron was quick to join in his treachery, but his only true master was the rage and bloodlust within him. He fell to Chaos during the Horus Heresy and was transformed into a Daemon Prince of the Blood God Khorne. He was most recently banished to the Warp after he unleashed the First War of Armageddon upon the Imperium of Man in 474.M41.

Classification: Primarch of the World Eaters Space Marines, Daemon Prince of Khorne

Powers and Abilities: 

Superhuman Physical CharacteristicsEnhanced SensesImmortality (Types 1 and 3), Regeneration (Low-Mid), Large Size (Type 0; Should be comparable to Primarchs like the Lion who's stated to be a little under 3 meters tall[1] and Mortarion who's stated to be twice the height of a mortal man[2]), Information Analysis (Can accurately analyze any chemical he eats/tastes and break them down if required[3]), Limited Memory Manipulation (Can eat creatures/people and absorb part of their memories from their DNA/RNA[3]), Technology Manipulation (His skin can directly connect and interface with his armor, among several other pieces of Astartes equipment[4]), Weapon Mastery (Skilled in a wide variety of weaponry to an extent far greater than what could ever be achievable by a regular human), Martial Arts (As a Primarch, Angron is one of the best close-quarters fighters in the entire galaxy, and was noted as potentially the most ferocious out of all of them), Empathic Manipulation (Demonstrated in his youth, Angron had a psychic ability that enabled him to draw all negative emotions from others into himself. He used this to calm child slaves and give his gladiator brothers and sisters peaceful sleep[5]), Vehicular Mastery, Genius Intelligence, Forcefield Creation (Via Iron Halo[6]), Durability Negation (Chain weapons possess monomolecular blades, making them absurdly effective against even far more durable targets[7]), Teleportation via Dimensional Travel, Plasma Manipulation (Via Plasma Pistol), Berserk Mode (Almost automatically enters such a state due to the Butcher's Nails[8]), Mind Manipulation and Soul Manipulation (Primarchs can fight on a physical, mental, and spiritual level[9]) Aura (Primarchs are said to contain an overwhelming aura that completely baffles regular humans, as well as sometimes Astartes. Their presence in the Warp is so powerful and influencing that Magnus reduced several Remembrancers to tears over his seeming divinity[10], while Russ could make Ahzek Ahriman himself kneel before him with his sheer presence[11])

Resistance to Magic, Telepathy, Mind ManipulationEmpathic ManipulationSoul Manipulation, Reality Warping, Madness Manipulation, Aura (Resistant to all the myriad of different attacks that can be made on him by the powers of the Warp, as well as most of the powers of other Primarchs. Resisted several World Eaters Librarians attempting to enter his mind and forced them out[12]), Disease Manipulation, Poison Manipulation (Astartes are practically immune to all diseases and poisons, and their Primarchs should logically be even tougher), Corruption, Radiation Manipulation (Should almost be entirely immune to the effects of radiation exposure, thanks both to his Power Armor and enhanced physiology), Heat Manipulation (Astartes are incredibly resistant towards extremes of hot and cold, and logically their Primarchs should be far superior), Pain Manipulation (Astartes possess the physiology and mental training to shrug off debilitating injuries, and their Primarchs should easily scale)

Previous abilties on a massively higher level, Large Size (Type 1; Stated to be the height of a Warhound Titan[13]), Flight, Self-Sustenance (Type 1, 2 and 3; Being a purely immaterial creature Angron now has almost no requirements to his continued, eternal existence), Immortality (Types 3, 4, 8, and 9; Daemons cannot die in the typical sense, only being sent back to the Warp when killed in the materium. Whether or not they come back is entirely dependent on if their God allows them to[14]), Regeneration (Varies from Mid-Low to High normally, Low-Godly overtime; Depending on the level of Warp degeneration within the Materium, Angron can regenerate from something as small as gunfire that tore fist-sized holes through his body[15] to the complete atomization of his body[16]. Upon physical death or banishment, Daemons will simply regenerate in the Warp as long as the ideas and metaphors that they rely on have not been affected), Possession and Dream Manipulation (Even Lesser Daemons can reach beyond the veil and possess mortals, even entering their dreams to do so[17]), Dimensional Travel (Capable of travelling from the Warp into the Materium[18]), Damage Reduction (Ranged weaponry is incredibly ineffective when used against a daemon, requiring more traditional weapons to fully banish them[19]), Madness Manipulation (Type 3) and Corruption (Types 1 and 2; Looking upon a daemon can cause insanity and corrupt the mind, body, and soul of an individual), Enhanced Soul Manipulation (The powers of daemons inherently utilize and affect the soul), Power Nullification, Reality Warping, Corruption, and Transmutation (His mere presence has a corrupting effect on everything around him; several decks of the Conqueror around his chamber were turned to living flesh with screaming mouths, and the water supply of the ship turned to blood faster than it could be reprocessed[20]), Summoning (Powerful Daemons are capable of summoning lesser daemons to aid them in combat[21]), Empathic Manipulation (His mere aura can drive mortals into bouts of madness and cause warriors around him to become bloodthirsty maniacs), Biological Manipulation (His mere presence caused the last of his Legion's Librarians to almost all be killed from within, such with brain hemorrhages and in one case a skull exploding on it's own[22]), Sound Manipulation (His roars are powerful enough to shake the sky, and caused a Marine to be sent hurling back, tearing many of his muscles[22]), Forcefield Creation and Empowerment (Is surrounded by a blood miasma being powered by the constant slaughter around him[23])

Same as before but to a higher degree

Attack Potency: At least Large Building level, likely far higher (One of the absolute strongest Primarchs. Corvus Corax believed him to be able to best any of them in combat with the exception of Horus and possibly Sanguinius[26]. Defeated Russ in a direct confrontation[27], and also defeated Roboute Guilliman in a fight as well[28]. Easily killed three Space Marines, killing two of them in a single axe swing[29]) | At least Large Building level, likely far higher (Much stronger than his previous self due to Khorne's blessings, and is one of his strongest champions. Slammed and tore through a Capitol Imperialis, a superheavy tank made of plasteel and ceramite[30]) Ignores conventional durability due to the Warp-based property of his weapons | At least Solar System level, likely higher (Superior to Bloodthirsters within the Eye of Terror who can grow to the size of solar systems[31]. Should be comparable to the other Daemon Primarchs) | At least Low Multiverse level (One of the most powerful Daemon Primarchs, and as such should be comparable to Magnus)

Speed: At least Subsonic movement speed (Should be far faster than regular Marines), with Massively FTL+ reactions/attack speed (Comparable to Sanguinius) | At least Subsonic movement speed, with Massively FTL+ reactions/attack speed (Far faster than before) | At least Subsonic movement speed, with Massively FTL+ reactions/attack speed (Should be comparable to before) | Immeasurable (Beyond the concepts of time, space, or distance)

Lifting Strength: Class K (Briefly held up the leg of a Warhound Titan[32], which weighs 410 tonnes) | At least Class K (Stronger than before. Casually held up hundreds of tonnes worth of containers[33]) | At least Class K | Immeasurable

Striking Strength: At least Large Building Class, likely far higher | At least Large Building Class, likely far higher | At least Solar System Class, likely higher | At least Low Multiversal

Durability: At least Large Building level, likely far higher (Has battled with and easily survived numerous brawls with other Primarchs) | At least Large Building level, likely far higher (Tanked a shot from a plasma pistol at point blank range[34]). Higher with Blood Miasma (Blocked attacks that could destroy Titans[35]) | At least Solar System level, likely higher | At least Low Multiverse level

Stamina: Extremely high (Primarchs are capable of fighting with shattered ribs, caved in abdomens and even fractured skulls. Nothing short of a killing blow can stop them, and even their immensely lesser Space Marine sons can fight for weeks on end without stop. Angron himself was able to last through over a century of the degrading effects of the Butcher's Nails) | Limitless (Daemons have absolutely no need for rest) | Limitless | Limitless

Range: Several meters melee range, kilometers with ranged attacks | Several meters melee range, planetary with daemonic aura, possibly higher (Scaling from daemons that can grow to the size of, or warp, entire solar systems) | Several meters melee range, planetary with daemonic aura, possibly higher (Scaling from daemons that can grow to the size of, or warp, entire solar systems) | Hyperversal (Extends throughout the Warp)

Standard Equipment:

  • Gorefather and Gorechild: Twinned Chainaxes utilized by Angron throughout most of the Great Crusade. Their teeth were extracted from the jaws of the Mica-dragons from the Death World of Luther Macintyre IX, while their shafts are made out of adamantium.
  • Spite Furnace: A Plasma Pistol utilized by Angron throughout most of the Great Crusade.
  • Armor of Mars: A modified suit of Power armor made from from the gladiatorial armor originally worn by Angron on Nuceria.

  • Black Blade: An enormous and extremely powerful Daemon Sword forged by the Dark Mechanicum after Angron's ascension during the Shadow Crusade.

  • Intelligence: Extraordinary Genius (All the Primarchs possessed intellect incomparable to regular men, possessing genius far above most of history's greatest minds. Angron in particular is an extremely skilled leader, warmonger, general and most of all, fighter, that can command vast interstellar armies in numerous conquests), far lower while in a rage (Can lose all sense of self) | At least Average (Has his intelligence extremely hampered by being constantly enraged, although is still not completely mad) | Unknown

    Weaknesses: The Butcher's Nails interfere with his thought process, turning him into a frothing berserker most of the time in battle, hampering his intelligence, and it cannot be removed from him without killing the Primarch. | Cannot manifest his full power outside the Warp. Far more insane than his previous form due to "blessings" from Khorne. If a being knows his true name they can utilize it to very easily bind him | His true name can be used to bind him and even completely immobilize him | None notable
