For dorn i'm gonna say his honesty/eloquance as he is rememberd for never telling a lie even when it would have aided his cause hance why he provoked great resentment from pertubo with his eloquant answer to the question posed by horus as to who would grasp victory in a siege with the fists defending.

knowledge is power, hide it well

That could work. Although he wouldn't have inherited such a trait from the Emperor - The Emperor was anything but honest!

Anyone who's read Flight of the Eisenstein and has the same sort of views as me would mark Dorn down for Pride or complete Arsehole-ness.

Garro: The Death Guard turned against us and tried to kill loads of Loyalists!
Dorn: No he didn't! I'm going to stick my head up my own backside and accuse you of treason, even though I have no idea what he really is doing!

See?

I wouldn't say Pride at all. If you were Dorn and some random Astartes had told you that your brother (whose loyalty was never in question) and several other Primarchs had turned against the Emperor what would you do? instantly believe him?

Im suprised he didn't kill him on the spot, as that would have been entirely justified given the circumstances.

Well he nearly did. I think that sanguinis inherited the emperors nobility.

Default Horus

There is a quote by Horus from one of the earliest Heresy books when he speaks to a few fellow Primarchs, that stayed with me, and even though I can't recall every word it goes something like this:

- "Do you know why our father appointed me Warmaster?
...
- "Because I never loose a battle"

Horus get's shit done. For better or worse, he doesn't know defeat even if when dead.

That is such a simple yet powerful set of words, in my opinion.
