Along with their dedicated Rhino, 'Shield of Optera'
The second half of the 6th Squad, theoretically of the 2nd Company, is lead by Squad Leader Epheus. Recruited shortly before the outbreak of the Badab War, Epheus is one of the youngest and most decorated 2nd Sergeants in the Chapter. It is widely assumed that he will be appointed as leader of his own squad as soon as such an opportunity presents itself, though at that point he'll likely have to lay down his trusty flamer Venator Due mostly to this fact, it is not uncommon for Epheus to lead the 2nd half of the squad into battle absent Veteran Sergeant Volare. As a newer recruit, who has seen the Black Rage since his induction, Epheus is steeped in the Sanguinary Cult.
