Brand Mac Lir is a Battle-Brother of the Storm Wardens Chapter who won fame during the campaign known as the Cleansing of Vigil. As a result of his experience fighting the foul xenos called the Slaugth, a desire was kindled within him to join the Deathwatch -- the Chamber Militant of the Ordo Xenos.
His keen fervour and veteran tactical skills contributed to Brand's meteoric rise within the ranks of those elite alienhunters. By his third deployment he led his own Kill-team and by his ninth Vigil he was elected as Watch Captain.
Brand is known to be a cautious leader at times, as his tactics are conservative and adhere to the Codex Astartes, for he is always wary of the tricks and traps of the enemy. But once battle is joined, he is as ferocious and direct in facing the foe as any other Space Marine.
In battle he wields the Chapter relic called Morwenna, a two-metre-long Sacris Claymore that has reaped a tremendous toll of alien blood and ichor in deadly hand-to-hand combat.
