Zelbezis Dyestes is primarch of the XII, the Iron Guard


Primarch Origins[edit]

When the infant Primarchs were scattered through the stars, the one bearing the numeration XII would land on a world whose original name has been lost to history. Fragmentary records render it as either Dherzel or Tarzhalas. The planet had suffered heavily from infighting during Old Night, having reached its electrical revolution mere decades before the Primarch landed. This industrialisation had been led by a feudal system, whose various houses had united to conserve their power into a global High Kingdom. However efficient this system had been for the development of technology, it thrived off the blood of the poor, and many voices rose against it. In remote mountainous areas, the people had rejected the oppressive rule of the High Kingdom, calling themselves Liberated Zones. An uprising was inevitable. It was in one such free zone that the young primarch would land.

His arrival would be seen as an omen that the time was right. He was named Zelbezis, a name pre-dating the rise of the High Kingdom, and held as a sign that the time was right. He soon showed prestigious abilities to learn, and he was taught in all matters of war and statecraft. From siegecraft to guerilla, from dialectics to cryptography, from gunsmithing to the arts of the blade, he was to be the perfect revolutionary. His very first raids against the High Kingdom's, railway sabotage and warehouse pillagings, were flawless, and he soon rose to coordination roles. It was around this time he took the nom de guerre of "Dyestes".
