“Dark Dreams lie upon the Heart.”
When the insurgency on Anubis Prime began, Xerxes was assigned as a special advisor to the Petty Lord Novus Nellus of House Nellus. The Nellus household made less use of Xerxes as an advisor and more as an amusing oddity and conversation piece. When rebellious Men of the House slew the Petty Lord and his family, they dismissed Xerxes as a harmless, mad fool and left him alive in the House Nellus manor.
When soldiers still loyal to the governor of Anubis Prime arrived, they found Xerxes gibbering to himself among the dead and promptly arrested him. He was scheduled for execution on drummed up charges, but was given an ultimatum by the aged Deathwatch Captain Davios Mihawk: to join his impromptu band of acolytes or go back to the firing line. Having foreseen his own death during his training on Holy Terra, Xerxes knew he had no choice but to accept.
