The Last Loyalist


The Last Loyalist

A World Eaters Short Story

Zhukel Dror and a small group of shell-shocked loyalists hold out on the world of Isstvan III. Fighting off their former brothers as attrition, claustrophobia, and the psychological trauma of betrayal takes its toll on them, ultimately they are undone as Zhor snaps and murders his brothers in a rampage caused by the Butcher's Nails.

It’s a tragic and harrowing tale recounting the physical and mental struggles of the loyalist survivors of the Isstvan III Atrocity – a dark event which heralded the start of the Horus Heresy.

The events on Isstvan III in the early years of the 31st Millennium are among the darkest in the history of humanity and brought about the start of a galactic civil war, the ramifications of which are still felt 10,000 years later. Following the traitorous assault, a handful of shell-shocked loyalists remain, but their efforts to survive are ultimately in vain, as an unseen enemy walks amongst them.
