Featured here is the completed Horus Rising blog experience for easy reading convenience! I will also include a glossary of all the characters I reference because I’ve definitely forgotten who everyone is.

The Emperor: But not the important one.
Loken: Our main character who is a struggle to relate to due to his inability to emote.
Abaddon: A captain who has anger issues I think.
HORUS: The Warmaster. Also apparently a god? Who is very peaceful for a leader with a raging desire to kill everything.
Sadie: A remembrancer with a strangely shaped head who becomes BFF’s with Loken.
Ig: A remembrancer who is kind of a jerk, but grows on you.
Keeler: A remembrancer who is awesome, and ends up suffering from PTSD.
Tarik: Loken’s best friend and part of the Mournival.
Sindermann: A sweet old man who likes books and is highly respected by Loken
Memed: An iterator who has little to no importance in the story.
Lowercase Horus: A member of the Mournival.
Ezekyle: A member of the Mournival.
Peeter Egon Momus: An architect who has little to no importance to the story.
Brothers of HORUS: Sanguinius, Lorgar, Fulgrim, Angron, Perturabo, Guilliman, Russ, Lion, Khan, and Dorn
Jubal: Did not get a promotion, doesn’t handle it very well.
Krasten and Flora: Two remembrancers who hang out with Keeler briefly.
Vipus: An Astartes, friends with Loken I think.
Saul: An idiot who executes good ideas poorly and lets other people take credit for it.
Lucius: Saul’s friend I think, turns into a defensive ego defending mess.
Sardine: Not his actual name, but close enough.
Eidolon: The commander of the Astartes that go to Murder. Kind of a massive a-hole.
August: The month of my birth. Oh wait, you mean a character?
Eshkerrus: How does one pronounce?
Bulle: A member of Saul’s squad.
Marr: An Astartes with no importance to the story.
Qruze: An old war hero who is no longer relevant but everyone humors him anyway.
Sanguinius: One of HORUS’s brothers. He’s actually a cool guy.
Malgohurst: An important strategist I think.
Daith Sehn: Envoy for the interex.
Erebus: A character thrown in at the last minute.
Mithras Tull: A Jethro Tull cover band. I mean, an interex soldier with approximate status to Loken.
