Default Mephiston?

Fast question- Who is Mephiston, Lord of Death? I found a model of him at my local gaming store, and bought it because he looks cool. But I want to know who he is- I put it in General 40K because I don't really know what army he is :P

Thanks!

He's a super-powered Librarian from the Blood Angels chapter. The codex can be found on GW's site for free.

Mephiston, like ThatGuy said, is a Librarian of the Blood Angels. A Chief Librarian to be exact.

You can find information on him on Wikipedia....

"Mephiston was originally known as Brother Calistarius. In his former life, Calistarius was a Librarian noted for his unusual strength of will. His destiny would be changed forever by the 2nd War for Armageddon. Calistarius succumbed to the Black Rage and was inducted into the Death Company, expecting to find death in honourable battle. In an ensuing assault on an Ork strongold, the walls collapsed around the Death Company, imprisoning those who had not died. Calistarius lay trapped for seven days and seven nights, resisting the foul demands of the Red Thirst. The psyker claimed that he was granted a beatific vision of the primarch Sanguinius, who appeared and told him that he must become an example to all Blood Angels, and show that the Red Thirst could be defeated. After seven days, Calistarius vanquished the Black Rage and burst free from his rocky tomb, reborn. Brother Calistarius was no more. From now on, he would be known as Chief Librarian Mephiston, the Lord of Death."

I wonder why he chose that name, i would have gone for something funnier, like 'George the uber killing machine off doom' i think it has a better ring to it.

it's a play on Faust's Mephisto(pheles)...

Faust summoned a devil in the shape of "Mephistopheles" (sometimes also referred to as simply "Mephisto"), the name itself is therefore often associated with evil and sounds pretty badass, wouldn't you say?

Don't you mean the Chief Librarian? Marine Chapter's usually only have one Chief Librarian at any given time
