Mad Props to Angel_of_Rust for the sig.
why would he do that?
Because of his ability to see premonitions of the future, he foresaw himself getting killed by the assasin so he felt that there was no way to escape it. So he let it happen.
(if i remember my fluff correctly. I might be wrong)
"I am the architect of fate!"
No you're right.Plus he wanted to martyr himself for his cause..he felt by allwoing the Emporer's agents to assasinate him he was proving a point.
Personnaly I reckon it was part of some wacky plan. Ditto for Alpharius
He never fully embraced Chaos. He was always the primarch who got shunned-the night lords, due to the fact that they were partial to wiping out the planetary populations they were meant to protect for "heresy", were always put on rearguard duty, or supporting another chapter, or second choice. He thought that it would be a bit cool to go on a little crusade against the Emperor with his brothers, and he didn't realise it would end up shredding the galaxy for the next few millenia. He did not become a daemon prince, like his fellow primarchs. He had a premonition of his death before this, but soon after the crusade had failed, he realised the error in what he had done, and how everything was pulling together to make his premonition a reality. Soon after, one of his close guards revealed themselves as the Callidus assassin. He did not even put up a fight as the operative sliced him apart.
Poor, deranged Night Haunter.
The only difference between tattooed people and non-tattooed people is that tattooed people are awesome and can kick your ass.
"War does not determine who is right - only who is left."
Number one, Night Haunter had the premonitions from before he was found by the Emperor.
Number two, him and the Primarch of the Thousand Sons (Fulgrim?) were the first of the Primarchs that the Emperor became wary of. The Night Lords for their brutal murders of anybody that was around, loyal or not in their engagements, and The Thousand Sons for searching out their forbidden knowledge of sorcery.
Number three, They went willingly, and from some of the fiction I read, they were amongst the second group of chapters (the breakdown of the legions pre-heresy) that wiped out those that landed first (including supposedly the 2 "lost" legions) on Istvaan.
Number four, The Night Haunter was disturbed more and more by his visions that at the end, he was a waste because he was paralyzed by his waiting for death to come, which is why now, more than all the other traitor legions, they are so divided. The different Chapter leaders had already starting to flex independency. Which is why they are considered barely a threat to the Imperium by themselves.
And I've done nothing else but look into this stuff since I got the starter set and made them Night Lords.
Oo, and um, in the same vein, the 2 "lost" legions are supposedly the origins of the Cursed founding.
