So, i am sure we all know about cypher, the fallen dark angel with a blade that he never uses, and his mysterious and random course shows him trying to approach terra.

He was relevant in previous editions of 40k, but now, suddenly, he is just a simple footnote in the new dark angels codex.

Old prophecy from heresy days stated that cypher is the only hope of forgiveness for the dark angels, because he carries the blade of el'johnson, and if he can lay the blade at the foot of the emperor, the emperor will forgive them for the schism that has been the dirty little secret for 10 millennia.

so anyone have any ideas about where he is? whats he up to?

Fact is that noone knows and to my knowledge he has not featured a all since the Eye of Terror and the Orphidion gulf crusade where he got captured by black templers.

no, cypher is a fallen angel once a memeber a the dark angels, cypher is a title and not an actual name his original duty was the keeper of tradition or something like that,
lucius the eternal is an emperors children character and serves slaanesh,

no he is not, he is one of the fallen dark angels and Lucius is a crazy jerk from the emperors children.

id like to see him plunge his sword through the emperors heart severing his ties to humanity at last, it would be a sight to see watching the emperor take his last breath and his eyes closed shut at humanity. maybe someday he will reach his goal of getting to terra and be in the emperors presense, but i can only pray that the dark gods have destroyed all the love in his heart because that will be what causes the action of a crash course for loyalist.

well as much as i would like to see lucius kill the emperor cypher is the only person i can see getting close enough to the emperor to make a fatal blow. of course it would be a suicide mission but im sure he would be reicarnated for it and become a daemon of such great power he could lead chaos to the final fight of the imperium

As far as I can tell Cypher is not a Chaos Marine. He doesn't make any pledges to the Dark Gods, but is still badass enough that he can get away with killing one of Abbaddon's bodyguards in the Warmaster's presence.

It was a WD fluff article before the Eye of Terror campaign. A lightning claw armed chosen attacks Cypher under Abbadon's orders but he gets shot in the face with his plasma pistol for his trouble. Abbadon comments on the fact that the systems he attacks are in better shape than they were previously but Cypher just dismisses this before Abbadon leaves.

I thought it was more the Fallen gravitating to him. Either way it's never been directly said what his true intention are, but he seems to appear in troubled areas of the Imperium and causes revolts or uprisings but in the aftermath those places end up stronger than before. In the last Black Crusade he lured the entire Dark Angels to a sector due to his uprising and the area was as a reuslt more heavily defended for an upcoming chaos attack. From this i like to think he is still Loyal, but having been branded a traitor can't directly help the Imperium so he does it with this method instead.

That being said his movement are said to be moving closer to Terra. Who knows what he will do if he ever got there. Some believe like said he will present the Lion Sword to the Emperor who will then repair it and somehow bring back the Lion or usher in a new age for the Imperium. On the other hand others believe he will use the sword to kill the Emperor, which may still prove to be a good thing for the Imperium as some believe it will allow the Emperor to be reborn as the Star Child and really begin a new age for the Imperium.

And about him last being captured by the Black Templars. From what i remember of that they told the Dark Angels who then came and took custody of him, and after that the ship was never heard from again. And then when the Dark Angels got back to the Rock they found his cell to be empty.

does anyone know where the rules and stats for cypher are and is he still legal to use because his model is awesome

Basically he will either so what angel of blood said or he will kill the emperor which will allow him to die and become the star child which will save all humanity and bring about a new glorious age for the imperium.

EDIT: BTW the 40 wiki lexicum or whatever it is call is you best friend with these questions

Lexicanum?
Anyway, I like the idea of Star Child, but it is yet another theory. Noone knows what will happen after Emperor's death, and I think that Terra would become another Warp rift like The Eye. This would be even cooler than Star Child, IMO.

i love the idea that the only thing stopping humans for redemption and saving all of mankind is thier undying love for the emperor and only by letting him die will they be free
