Assault Squad Rigio

Theoretically the 7th squad of the 2nd Company, Assault Squad Rigio is one of the primary squads assigned to Strike Force Iltempus. Veteran Ancient Rigio is extremely venerable, having first earned his appointment following the Corinthian Crusade in 704.M41. He bears an ancient glaive, crafted for him in 857.M41 for his achievements on the shrine world of Apuis III. The Adepts of Apuis crafted the weapon for Rigio after he was seen holding a breach for twelve hours, wielding a lamp post after his chainsword became too encrusted with the gore of heretics. During the Badab War Rigio held his squad to a strict code of bloodlessness. Not a single one of his Battle Brothers drew Loyalist blood during the conflict, instead relying on feints and submission close combat attacks. Rigios tactics are firmly entrenched in the Codex Astartes, and it seems, with his already great age, that he will never succumb to the Black Rage.
