Assault Squad Iberios
The members of Iberios' unit were all once members of the almost destroyed 8th Company. Veteran Sergeant Iberios now stands as the highest ranking member of the Company and stands as a likely candidate for Captaincy when, and if, the Company is reformed. Assigned to Strike Force Iltempus, his unit remains somewhat isolated from the rest of their Brothers (who mostly come from the 2nd). A devout Sanguinarian, Iberios has encountered The Lamenter over half a dozen times, more than anyone in the Chapter. This only helps to illustrate what trials he and his squad have been through; the destruction of the 8th on Optera, the Fall of Malvolion, the Devlan evacuations, Jakarra, where Iltempus struck out at the Kabal of the Rubied Blade. He encourages his men to use personal heraldry and weaponry freely, as a celebration of their fallen comrades of the 8th. Iberios is often gripped by the Red Thirst, but he is still aggressive, verging on foolhardy, even when right of mind. Knowing the mind of his Brother, Eurico always gives the majority of front-line assignments to Iberios and his men.
