Default What is Captain Taelos' forename?

Captain Taelos of the Imperial Fists, you know...the chap that led the Fists on a crusade through Maelstrom, Choria, Fell heart and finally snuffed it on Golgotha doing battle with an Ork Warboss...what was his first name (Taelos, not the Ork)?

Have you tried Wiki ing it? Or using Goooooooogle? Thats probably your best bet, seeing as how Imperial Fists aren't exactly the most popular marine chapter (not dogging you, just stating what appears to me to be obvious).

Honestly, until the 4th edition marine codex I didn't know who Lysander was. The only real things about the Imperial Fists that I know is that their Primarch is Rogal Dorn and that there was a huge enmity between the Imperial Fists and the Iron Warriors (one of the reasons that the Iron Warriors turned traitor).

It's more of a "I don't like the color yellow" than a "I can't paint yellow, so I won't try". Honestly the only marine color/army/fluff that really appealed to me was Dark Angels, so thats what I follow. If you were to ask me about most of the other chapters you'd get a blank stare...*

So don't feel too bad about it.

* Does not include drool. Same stare is used for ogling women and general television viewing. Stare is not legal in 13 of the continental states and void in Canada and Mexico. If prolonged exposure causes an itchy rash, you might want to check yourself cause the stare doesn't cause that. Please consult your doctor before using the stare or entering a stare free area after having used the stare.

I couldn't find his first name, but i know who you are talking about, Tom. Big guy, yellow armor, wears a bear skin rug. He met with the Tau once. There is some fluff about it in the old Tau codex.

Yeah, that's the chap...well at least you've heard of him. Maybe no name is mentioned at all? Guess I can just make it up then. Thanks anyway.

Imperial Fists ftw. Dude, yellow is sweet. Hey, I like almost any chapter color besides pink on a SM...

Plus, the Imperial Fists are the defenders of Terra. What could be cooler (other than grey knights or inquisitors or the custodes)??

But, sadly, I do not know his name.

Heheh, there's a guy who goes to my store who's making a pink marine army. Basically, just one big gay joke ("What kind of power weapon is that?" "One with batteries!").

Back to the question at hand, maybe Taelos is his first name.
