>Support Honor Guard
You turn to move with the Honor Guard who disembarked form the drop pod. A techmarine also emerges from the pod.
"Where is the Chapter Master!?" they shout over the vox. You lead them to the shattered body of Iratus' dreadnought, his cadaver mangled, lying in the ground. The Techmarine moves the the Dreadnought to take damage assessment. The Apothecaries move with all haste to Iratus' husk. You move closer as the Honor Guard stand resolute to kill anyone who dares disturb them.
You see what Iratus was. A man, of flesh, blood, and bone. His body has taken a great deal of punishment. You see the Apothecaries injecting his body with various syringes from the Narthecium, desperately trying to preserve him.
Your eyes lock open the mouth of your Chapter Master moves. Even the Honor Guard are surprised.
"I can... serve... no longer... as your... Chapter Master."
"Master Iratus, be still. You desperately require a sarcophagus to preserve your body."
"N-No, Apothecary. Such is... His will. M-Mansoon!"
You hear your name, quickly approaching the Chapter Master. Your eyes deceive you surely as you see his decrepit hand rising in a fist. Nay, he really is extending his fist towards you.
"You show... true fury... Tell... Saevio... He is your new.. Chapter Master. Honor.. and... Duty, Captain Mansoon."
Your bring your armoured fist to bear. Silence falls around you as your fist touch, sealing the decree of the Chapter Master in a final brofist.
