Are we sure? What about an apathetic one? Erm, maybe. :rolleyes: ;)

Apathetic one? That would explain one of the deleted ones then. Never even bothered...

Exactly. After seeing his brother destroyed by the spectral Horus, the twentieth Primarch merely went, "Ah to hell with this contrived material. I'm going for a beer in a different game universe..." ;)

Maybe he was apathetic because he landed on an apathetic world? They couldn't be bothered to name his something impressive so they called him Bob.

Bob the Primarch.

Should have guessed really :rolleyes:

And that, children, is the origin of Sigmar. ;)

He did look bored in that picture to be honest.

I'd disagree with 'pride' for Perturabo, because it does seem like he humbly put up with disrespectful and inconsiderate treatment from the Emperor and the Imperium for hundreds of years. He always obeyed his orders, despite never being given any credit or glory (while it was heaped on his fellow primarchs). He watched his legion split into garrisons and fight and die for less reward than others. Yes, he reacted badly to Dorn being awarded the honour of fortifying Terra, but I think that was more the straw that broke the camel's back. Pride became a factor at some point, but I don't think he was a glory seeker in the same way that Horus was.

I like 'thoughtful' for Vulkan though, since he's quite a hard primarch to pin down.

Here's a post of mine that I shift aroudn the baords whenever a question like this comes up. It's been said that each Primarch was created to embody a different aspect of the Emperor, and this is a list of my opinions on who represented what. Some of them are quite similar to yours.


Angron: Agression
Curze: Courage
Alpharius: Ingenuity
Roboute: Loyalty
Lorgar: Faith
Mortarion: Resolution
Magnus: Comprehension
Horus: Ambition
Ferrus: Strength
Sanguinius: Spirit
Corax: Caution
Jaghatai: Action
Russ: Passion
Perturabo: Invention
Dorn: Honour
The Lion: Reason
Fulgrim: Purity
Vulcan: Determination

Of course, these are their ideals at their best, most Primarchs came to represent the darker sides of these virtues as well. Kurze's courage became terror/fear, Horus' ambition became domination, Fulgrim's purity became perversion. Even the loyalists had moments where their values became darker: Dorn fell to pride, Russ to fury, Corax to desperation, The Lion to apathy, etc.

Perhaps his "homeworld" was Planet Bob, from, Titan AE!? ;)
