Yep, here's what we know about him so far.

He was in the Thousand Sons' inner circle of command, and unsuccessfully tried to stop the Rubric.
He definitely sounds interesting.

Brand new character? I can't remember him from Prospero Burns or a Thousand Sons...But it's been awhile since I've read those.

Oh, this definitely seems interesting, I'm sure it will be great!

He's not in the Heresy series, and according to ADB he probably won't be.

Good. I don't half hate it when authors (McNeill) constantly regurgitate characters.

Well ADB did confirm that Falkus Kibre survived the Heresy in Soul Hunter, he was still leading Abaddon's Terminator elite. If I had to guess i'd say he'll likely be in the Black Legion series.

I hope each edition gets a first run hardcover like Pariah, Priests of Mars etc. I really like the non-dust jacket hardcovers BL produce. Even better if i can get them from BookDepos.

I'm pretty sure the Gaunts Ghosts series started out this way.

If he didn't support the Rubric and hated the results it gives a pretty good reason to abbadon his own Legion! Man I am SO excited!

I am pretty excited for this series. Even more so if it becomes a long running series. It looks like ADB can take things pretty much anywhere he wants to (and over a 10,000 year period, that can be pretty far). Now the wait for The Talon of Horus. This may be the first series I buy everything in hardcover.

Rise, my sons, and take your wrath across the stars, in my name. In my memory. Rise, my Night Lords.

Ave Dominus Nox!
