assault marine rank 1
Egil’s induction to Deathwatch hapened by accident. That accident was a malufanction in the battle barge Gylfarheim, that happened in warp transit as his great company returned to Fenris from an other successful campain. The ship’s captain was forced to imediatly exit warp space blindly to avoid destruction. After the craft was back in real space it was discovered by long range scans that they were in the Jamael sector . The sector all but abandoned was defending itself from an orc attack . The war was ongoing and as the wolves found out a stalemate, orc and human were figthing over the vast promithium mines of Jamael primaris, the orc’s advance had long ago staggered due to them not having any fuel left. So they laid siege to the planets major cities ,to get to the fuel suplies below their surface, the wolves imidietly made planetfall and set about combating the orc’s turning the tide to victory. Egil (still a blood claw at the time) distingused himself to the point that he was inducted to the grey hunters. When the campain was slowly turning to it’s end the orc’s launced a huge ofenssive to the planet’s capital and quickly overruned the defending pdf and guard regiments, forcing them to retreat only the arrival of the wolves made them halt their advance and eventualy they routed them after 3 day’s of battle. It was at that point that Egil’s ability o slay xenos was revealed. So after they secured the system they reterned to Fenris and held a great feast for the victory it was at this feast that it was desided that Egil was to get seconded to deathwatch .
