Virgil Arsalor was an Afriel Strain soldier until he was resurrected as what the old Imperium of Man would call a Living Saint. However, he refused this title and decreed his allegiance to the New Imperium for unknown reasons. He serves the New Imperium as the Lord Commander of the elite forces known as the Void Formations. He also played a major role in making the surviving Blood Angels and their many successors switch sides from the Imperial Remnant to the New Imperium.
Virgil was born as a mixed up clone of different Imperial heroes sometime in prior to 990.M41. He was part of a new side project of the Afriel Strain super soldiers. In this project he had the soul of another human transferred into him to try and eliminate the bad luck that all Afriel Strains have. while the experiment actually proved successful it still needed testing and so was Virgil send to fight the Chaos Insurrection on the planet of Hovark II in Segmentum Ultima. He was just as effective as any other Afriel Strain had proved before him and he showed quite a bit of promise that he might have been able to overcome the bad luck. Things, however, took a turn for the worse when the forward camp that Virgil was stationed at came under heavy artillery bombardment. The bombardment kept going for more than six relentless hours and the camp was completely wiped from the surface of the planet. The remains of Virgil's body was never recovered and the leaders overseeing the project he was part of declared it a failure and shut down the project.
Many years later in the 48th Millennium when forces of Abaddon the Despoiler launched an invasion against a planet of the newly founded New Imperium. The Chaos forces quickly cut through the New Imperial forces but in their darkest hour, when everyone loyal to the New Imperium lost hope, a blinding light in the sky appeared as if a huge explosion happened. This blinding light touched a daemon and banished it back to the warp, while the daemon screamed in foul pain. When the light died out Virgil Arsalor was standing in its place. Clad in silver and golden armor covering his entire body with four great wings emanated from his back. In his hands rested a huge double edged greatsword. Without a word he dived at the chaos' ranks, cutting down enemies with each swing of his large sword. Seeing the damned flee to regroup, he turned to the New Imperial forces, seeing some were kneeling and praying, while others looked to him with awe. He shouted with an inhumanly loud voice that carried his words across the battlefield and he managed to rally the otherwise scattered defenders. He inspired them to fight back. It was not surprising when Virgil took command of the defenders, they gained a huge boost to their morale. Eventually they were able to hold off the forces of Chaos long enough for reinforcements to arrive and push the Chaos armies off world. Virgil, however, wasn't done with just saving one planet and quickly boarded the first vessel that could take him to the next.
Virgil Arsalor has long white hair which he has either loose or tied in a ponytail that reaches down his back. His eyes are described as two blinding lights, staring with either a serious look or burning hatred towards his enemies. His face is square shaped with sharp cheekbones.
On his back spurts four huge and majestic white wings that allows him to cross large distances nearly in an instant. He's only seen in his armor and stands ever vigilant. Since no one saw him without his armor, there are many rumors and beliefs surrounding him. Some even believe that he has nothing inside his armor and exist solely for the continuity of Mankind.
The Void Dawn is the name given to the huge two-handed greatsword that also is a force weapon for Virgil to channel his psychic powers through. Having a length of 2.5 meters and seemingly made of light it is extremely sharp. From this sword he can also unleash slashes of pure psychic fire that burns away at his enemies, especially daemons of the Warp.
