Was just thinking earlier, i wonder how the Dark Angel explain what happened to the Lion and the Rock? I imagine Russ and others would have been rather curious as to how Caliban was destroyed and the Lion lost. We know the Dark Angels don't tell anyone about the Fallen or what happened. Looking for some serious answers but feel free to add more entertaining ones.

I've got an image of Russ, Guilliman and any other currently survivng primarchs turning up at the remains of the rock

Russ and co. - wtf happened here? wheres the lion?!
Dark Angel 1 looking at whats left of Caliban - fuck me! when the fuck did that happen? Did you see that happen
Dark Angel 2 -me? fuck no, you?
Dark Angel 3 -no way, shit, guess um it must have exploded or something........
Russ and co. - exploded........?
Dark Angel 1,2,3 - .........yes, because of.........Horus!
Russ and co. - Oh yes horus of course, yes that could make sense. um sorry for your loss
Dark Angel 1 - Thank you brothers, this is a hard time...
(dark angels in the background taking luther inside to his cell)
Russ and co. - Hey is that luther?
Dark Angel 2 - Who? luther? noooooo.
Russ and co. - There! right there shackled up and mumbling
Dark Angel 3 - Naaaaah that's um......
Dark Angel 2 - Bob!
Russ and co. - Bob?......
Dark Angel 1 - Yeaaaaah, you know bob! always joking about, no doubt pulled a prank on someone again!
Russ and co. Random marine - Oh the guy who replaced our Librarians staff with a magic wand??
Dark Angel 1 - .........yes!
Russ and co. - Hmmmm well ok then, good luck with the cleaning, and if Jonson does turn up tell him to return my calls

On the contrary i distinctly remember reading that they infact became very good friends and developed a large amount of respect for each other. In the older fluff they were arrving to break the seige of terra together. And some believed Russ might have left to go find his good friend the Lion

Well the direct quote from the codex is "As Supreme Grand Master, Azrael alone is privy to the greatest secret of all. At the very heart of the Rock is a cell, shielded by metre upon metre of adamantine armour and inscribed with the most potent runes of warding. Withing, kept alive for ten thousand years inside a stasis field, languishes the broken Man who was once Luther."

So yeah, only him. Something that irks me a little, i think at least the Masters of the Deathwing and Ravenwing as well as the Grand Master Librarian and Master Interrogator-Chaplain should also know

Aye i get that, but just at least one other individual perhaps, the Master Interrogator for instance, would make sense for him to know at least, to further interrogate him. Got to assume the Grand Master goes through some solo ritual when elected in which it is somehow revealed to him, or the midgets tell him somwhow, tugging at the hem of his robe until he follows them to Luther ^^

Aye but it wasn't just that any planet had been destroyed. The planet was an astartes stronghold, a very effective and efficient one at that by all the reports. And it just gets completely destroyed with no explanation at all. I know alot of shit went down in the Heresy but i still think that would get flagged up. Theres also the fact that it occured after the Seige of Terra(do we even have an rough estimate of how long after?) But most pressingly, The Lion himself was lost, the surviving primarchs themselves would want to know how their brother was lost/killed in the wake of the heresy.

I dunno, it's just a very very large and important event. Alot of very high up people would be wanting to know what happened, they must have had to make up one hell of an excuse to satisfy them
