Master Lazarus of the Dark Angels 5th Company, first of his Chapter to cross the Rubicon Primaris.

Lazarus is the current master of the Dark Angels Chapter's 5th Company. He was the first Firstborn Space Marine of that Chapter to cross the Rubicon Primaris and ascend to the status of a Primaris Space Marine.


Master Lazarus, captain of the 5th Company, in combat after crossing the Rubicon Primaris and to become a Primaris Marine.

Lazarus attained his rank as an officer of the Dark Angels when his predecessor, Master Balthasar, was slain in the chaotic battles that erupted in the aftermath of the Cicatrix Maledictum’s emergence.

Lazarus fought bravely during the Invasion of the Stygius Sector and in the fighting aboard The Rock during the Siege of the Fenris System, after which he developed a powerful hatred for the forces of the Thousand Sons and the followers of Tzeentch.

An expert strategist and tactician, his leadership prevented a total rout of Imperial forces on the ice world of Rimenok, though he was severely wounded by fell sorcery during the fighting.

With even a Dreadnought's sarcophagus incapable of preserving his life, the only option remaining to the Dark Angels' Apothecaries was to put Lazarus through the crossing of the Rubicon Primaris.

After solar days of surgery, Lazarus was a changed man, but very much alive, his determination to punish the servants of Tzeentch stronger than ever.

This was a historical event. As a member of the Inner Circle, becoming a Primaris Space Marine made Lazarus the first Primaris in that elite group.
