I was flicking through the BA codex today, and noticed the last paragraph of Mephiston's entry, mentioning rumours about his black rage being replaced by something darker. Only Mephiston knows, and in time will reveal all.

So, could the something darker be a pact with the chaos powers? There's not much darker than that.

I doubt it. Mephiston would never make a pact with Chaos, its most likely the Red Thirst or perhaps some new evolution of the Black Rage that now threatens Mephiston.

Perhaps his head will explode and some form of psychic energy will open a massive warp rift to let an army of daemons through. Might not happen but is certainly theatrical enough.

As Magnus made a pact with Tzeentch to stop the flesh change...

Mephiston made a pact with Khorne to stave off the blood thirst.

imo :biggrin:

As with all things chaos, it will eventually turn around and bite him in the ass.

I was thinking something along those lines, but more likely Tzeentch, as Khorne would be more than happy to leave a Death Company warrior as he is, a blood thirsty maniac. Besides, he has only hatred for psykers.

Perhaps Mephiston is a tzeentchian daemon in disquise. Maybe the librarian he was actually died and then this daemon decided to mimic a more powerful version to him and it would explain why he has no red thirst-since he was never a blood angel. Maybe being on holy ground like the blood angels homeworld Baal has slowly diminished this diguise so that why the darkness is emerging-the daemon is slowly being revealed. Wonder what this guy does next, perhaps he murdaslises half the blood angels before dying. Brilliant!

Every librarian calls out and gains the attention of tzeentch, maybe Mep called abit to often.

Tzeentch is now winding Khorne up "haha you couldn't get any to follow you, look at me I got one!" That and we know that Tzeentch really likes red space marines!

Alot of Blood Angels hate......
I would have to agree, I'm sure its a pact much like the one Magnus made. Tzeentch is always in for change, and at the very least getting followers from a Chapter one would consider "Kornate" in action. I highly doubt however, the whole Chapter will change. IF Mephistion made a pact, it will probably just include himself.

I'd like to think it's something a little more twisted.
When a BA falls to the black rage they are said to re-live the last moments of sanguinius in his battle against Horus. I think that because Mephiston has fallen and managed to overcome the black rage he knows the truth of what happened.
Whatever that truth may be is now eating away at him and he knows that it will eventually destroy the Blood Angels.

Ooh, conspiracies abound. A chaos pact, a secret truth, daemonic possession.


I for one will NEVER trust the Blood Angels again. Even being second party to such taint is inviting trouble...

Maybe he is trying to hasten the fall of the BA by making it look as if it need not be feared so much anymore. Incite a level of recklessness.

Cunning little Tzeentchy daemon.

hmm and saying that seeinf as mepheston recovered as it were who's to say that he's not come back with the taint of horus strong in him and is guiding the blood angels to thier doom....the blood angels are created with sanguinus's holy blood as it were and as you say he tried to vamp out horus so yeah i can see that,

so if you like in a sense then Horus never truekly died and he is alive and well and living in the blood of his also dead brother and every single blood angel + thier successor chapters oh if that were true wouldn't Abaddon be rubbing his hands in glee....one of the believed nobility of all the loyalists not just running round with the blood of thier gene sire but the arch traitor too hee he that would make one hell of a story to write and on the subject of Mephiston he sure is taking a lot of interest in Rafen too
