The Battle of Castobel
Magos Biologis Vyakai
Tech Magos of the Adeptus Mechanicum.
A Magos Biologis of great standing and repute among his fellows in the Adeptus Mechanicus, Vyakai was caught on Tantalus at the time of the Tyranid attack and has used the opportunity to record vital data about the nature of Hive Splinter Dagon and its myriad horrors. His shuttle was brought down over Pyroclast-Gamma-9 while attempting to escape, and he has sought shelter and awaits retrieval by the Deathwatch. Unfortunately things have not gone according to plan and he has been badly injured and suffered extensive cranial damage in battle with a Hormagaunt not long after his last communication with the Deathwatch. Now his half-machine body’s self-repair systems are struggling to keep his wounded brain alive, and its Machine Spirit is methodically fulfilling its last ordered task, to seek refuge and defend itself.
The Magos was succesfully extracted by the Kill-Team. He is currently recovering in a medical facility on Castobel.
