The Salamanders hail from a world wracked by constant volcanic instability, but possessing the very rarest kinds of mineral resources. The Night Haunter, now inherently insane, saw the opportunity to torment his fallen brother and took the unconscious Vulkan as his prisoner.

The Primarch merely watched impassively as the manifold shuttles touched down and the loyalists took up position on the edge of the depression. Of Angron, there was no sign.
