Amongst that accursed throng who betrayed humanity strode Kor Megron, a mighty warrior whose glories in the name of the Imperium were many. Aliens by their hundred had fallen at his hand and lost civilisations had been nurtured back into compliance.

They turned against all that they had striven to build, ripping down the temples and edifices dedicated to the saviour of Mankind, bringing untold numbers of blasphemies and sacrilege across the length and breadth of the nascent [[Imperium of Man]].
   
The Word Bearers are renowned for their unswerving dedication to the Dark Gods and their fanatical worship of the entire unholy pantheon of Chaos. During the dark days of the Horus Heresy, the Word Bearers turned away from their adoration of the Emperor of Mankind, shifting their devotion and worship to a source more deserving.

Following the defeat of Horus, Kor Megron continued to fight the Long War against the hated 'Corpse Emperor' and his False Imperium, seeking to undo all that he had wrought as a once-loyal Adeptus Astartes. The [[Dark Apostle]] led his Word Bearers Host in a bloody crusade across the galaxy for millennia. It was upon the cathedral world of Rhodax that Kor Megron would perpetrate his greatest work and be granted the boon of Daemonhood. The vile Dark Apostle fought a brutal war of attrition over a period of 3 months against the pitiful number of gathered soldiers of the Imperium. As the streets of Rhodax filled with bloating corpses, Kor Magron's [[Bolter]] soon ran dry. He continued to fight on towards the Imperial shrine of the Basilica of Petch, a beloved Imperial saint to whom the world now looked for salvation, with his ancient [[Power Blades|power sword]] until the energy cells powering his weapon ran out and the blade had snapped off in the spine of a shambling [[Ogryn]]. Not dissuaded by this temporary setback, Kor Magron continued to fight on with his fists.
   
The daemonic pacts and infernal bargains they made as they embarked on their great betrayal are not recorded here, but the result is clear. When the Warmaster showed his hand and declared that the galaxy should burn, the Word Bearers were foremost amongst his allies, attacking the Imperium with a fervour and spite that was as shocking as it was unexpected. Elite warriors who had once lauded the Emperor as the light of the galaxy, the saviour of Mankind, now wrought blasphemies and sacrilege across the length and breadth of the Imperium.

Together with his warband he continued to assail the defenders on the steps of the fallen temple.

Though many of the remaining Word Bearers were wounded and they were running low on ammunition, they remained unbowed. While his men continued to fight, Kor Megron toppled the forty-foot tall statue of Saint Petch, piling the bodies of the Cadian dead around it to form a blasphemous mound upon the consecrated ground of the Basilica.
   
For millennia following the defeat of Horus, Kor Megron sought to undo what he had wrought as an Adeptus Astartes, leading his fellow Word Bearers in a blood-soaked crusade across the galaxy.

Now bolstered by agents of the [[Inquisition]] the Cadians attacked once more. Kor Megron stood upon the mound of the dead, roaring his devotion to the Ruinous Powers, offering up the piles of Imperial dead as a dark sacrifice.

Seething with barely restrained power, Kor Magron's transformed, twisting by the warping power of Chaos. Where once had stood a proud and strong [[Chaos Space Marine]] now towered an almighty [[Daemon Prince]] of [[Chaos]].
   
It was on the cathedral world of Rhodax that Kor Megron perpetrated his greatest work. For three months his warriors fought through the corpse-strewn streets of Rhodax against the hastily gathered warriors of the Imperium. When his bolter ran out of shells, he fought from shrine to shattered temple with his ancient power sword. When the energy cells that powered his beloved weapon ran out, and the blade snapped off in the spine of a lumbering Ogryn, he fought on with his fists.

The Word Bearers roared their exaltation at their lord's transformation, fighting on with renewed vigour, for they had been blessed by their dark gods. The Daemon Prince ripped the marbled blade free from the statue of Saint Petch, and transformed into a twisting and corrupted weapon of cruel destruction. Kor Magron strode forth and wreaked terrible slaughter upon the Imperial defenders of Rhodax. Soon after, Rhodax was declared a [[Dead World]], by the proscribed orders of the Inquisition, drifting lifeless in the void of space. A mute witness to the fury and hate of Kor Megron, the Reaper of Rhodax.
 
Together with his warband he assailed the steps to the Basilica of Petch, a beloved Imperial saint to whom the world now looked for salvation. Two thousand warriors of the Cadian XIV Regiment stormed the marble staircases, but the Word Bearers pushed them back. Ammunition was in short supply and the Chaos Space Marines had many wounded, but they remained unbowed - every wound they inflicted was a benediction to Chaos, a pledge of allegiance to the Dark Gods.
 
 
While his men fought on, Kor Megron toppled the forty-foot tall statue of Saint Petch, piling the bodies of the Cadian dead around it to form a blasphemous mound upon the consecrated ground of the Basilica. As the Imperial Guard attacked once more, now bolstered by the agents of the Inquisition, Kor Megron stood atop his macabre offering to Chaos and roared his devotion to the Dark Gods. In return the gods of the Warp rewarded his loyalty. His body was wracked by the power of Chaos, stretched and twisted with warping power. His skin became blackened, his head sprouted horns. Where once had stood a proud and strong Chaos Space Marine now towered an almighty Daemon Prince of Chaos.
 
 
The warriors around Kor Megron exalted at his transformation and fought with renewed vigour, even as their leader gripped the marbled blade of Saint Petch in his taloned hands and tore it free. The power of change flowed into the blade, twisting and corrupting the once holy relic into a weapon of cruel destruction. So armed, Kor Megron strode from the Basilica to glory his dark masters once more.
 
 
Rhodax is now a dead world, a shattered ruin proscribed by the Inquisition. It drifts lifeless, a mute witness to the fury and scorn of Kor Megron and the unending hatred of the Word Bearers.

Kor Megron

Kor Megron the Reaper of Rhodax

Kor Megron was a Daemon Prince who had once been a mighty Space Marine of the Word Bearers Traitor Legion during the Horus Heresy. In later eras, after his ascension to daemonhood, Kor Megron still plaguing the galaxy with his foul presence.

History

The Word Bearers were once renowned for their fanatical loyalty and religious zeal in persecuting the enemies of the Emperor of Mankind. But when Warmaster Horus, greatest of the Primarchs and most favoured son, betrayed his oaths of loyalty and launched an galaxy-spanning insurrection, the once-loyal Word Bearers were once of the first Legions to openly declare for the Warmaster. They turned their adoration and devotion to the 'False Emperor' towards the unholy pantheon of the Chaos Gods. They turned against all that they had striven to build, ripping down the temples and edifices dedicated to the saviour of Mankind, bringing untold numbers of blasphemies and sacrilege across the length and breadth of the nascent Imperium of Man.

Following the defeat of Horus, Kor Megron continued to fight the Long War against the hated 'Corpse Emperor' and his False Imperium, seeking to undo all that he had wrought as a once-loyal Adeptus Astartes. The Dark Apostle led his Word Bearers Host in a bloody crusade across the galaxy for millennia. It was upon the cathedral world of Rhodax that Kor Megron would perpetrate his greatest work and be granted the boon of Daemonhood. The vile Dark Apostle fought a brutal war of attrition over a period of 3 months against the pitiful number of gathered soldiers of the Imperium. As the streets of Rhodax filled with bloating corpses, Kor Magron's Bolter soon ran dry. He continued to fight on towards the Imperial shrine of the Basilica of Petch, a beloved Imperial saint to whom the world now looked for salvation, with his ancient power sword until the energy cells powering his weapon ran out and the blade had snapped off in the spine of a shambling Ogryn. Not dissuaded by this temporary setback, Kor Magron continued to fight on with his fists.

Together with his warband he continued to assail the defenders on the steps of the fallen temple. The Cadian XIV Regiment of the Imperial Guard attacked the warhost enmasse, 2,000 of their warriors storming the marble staircases, but the Word Bearers pushed them back. Though many of the remaining Word Bearers were wounded and they were running low on ammunition, they remained unbowed. While his men continued to fight, Kor Megron toppled the forty-foot tall statue of Saint Petch, piling the bodies of the Cadian dead around it to form a blasphemous mound upon the consecrated ground of the Basilica.

Now bolstered by agents of the Inquisition the Cadians attacked once more. Kor Megron stood upon the mound of the dead, roaring his devotion to the Ruinous Powers, offering up the piles of Imperial dead as a dark sacrifice. For his unflinching loyalty and dedication to the Chaos pantheon, the lords of the Warp rewarded their devoted servant with Daemonhood. Seething with barely restrained power, Kor Magron's transformed, twisting by the warping power of Chaos. Where once had stood a proud and strong Chaos Space Marine now towered an almighty Daemon Prince of Chaos.

The Word Bearers roared their exaltation at their lord's transformation, fighting on with renewed vigour, for they had been blessed by their dark gods. The Daemon Prince ripped the marbled blade free from the statue of Saint Petch, and transformed into a twisting and corrupted weapon of cruel destruction. Kor Magron strode forth and wreaked terrible slaughter upon the Imperial defenders of Rhodax. Soon after, Rhodax was declared a Dead World, by the proscribed orders of the Inquisition, drifting lifeless in the void of space. A mute witness to the fury and hate of Kor Megron, the Reaper of Rhodax.
