Default Is he alive? *spoilers*

Does anybody else think that Loken is still alive? I think he is as in the Dan Abnet interview in WD he said when asked the question
When will we see the return of Loken?
Aha! I couldn't possibly comment!
Does this leave you thinking that maybe we will see Loken again? I hope so as he is kick-ass cool.

I don't really want Loken to be alive personally. He was a great character sure but he died such a good death that I feel it would kinda ruin the seris a bit if he returned. His part has been played. The Horus Heresy isn't about individual space marines, its about the Primarchs. If Loken came back then it would stop becoming about Horus's actions and instead become more about Loken trying to stop Horus.

I agree. Loken died an honerable death. When the virus bombs hit Isstvan III Abaddon and Aximand and left and Loken was trapped in a pile of rubble. It was QUOTE: the sweetest sound he had ever heard. If he didn't die it would ruin that moment in the book.

P.S. has anyone noticed that the HorusHeresy books call the planets Isstvan III and V while the CodexChaosSpaceMarines calls them Istvaan II and V?

I think bringing back Loken would be a mistake, although he was a cool character bringing him back would make an otherwise excellent series of books too comic booky. there's too much other ground still to cover without getting bogged down with one character. IF they do bring him back though can they make it more up to date and have him kick Abaddons ass!

I hope the only way we see Loken again is in a pre-heresy flashback or something. You're right, if they decide he is alive it would take something away from the whole series.

Nah...Loken's toast, but I think Rylanor might have survived....might see his return.


You'll forgive me, but you must be mistaken. I've met your makers, and they don't even know your name...

I would like to see how they would justify doing this. He caught the beat down and then sat there as the planet was bombed, he's toast.

Which is fine with me, I think he was a shit character and he got what he had coming to him.
