Strike Captain Alvarex Maun
Alvarex Maun was a captain of the Raven Guard during the Great Crusade and Horus Heresy who served as Master of Descent. As such, he oversaw his Legion's planet-strike operations.
Alvarex performed his duties from the front-line, descending from orbit in the first wave of drop ships and leading the action to secure the landing zone in person. On Isstvan V, he led the landing operations from his personal command Thunderhawk.
When Corax ordered the Raven Guard to break out of the Urgall Depression, Alvarex had his Thunderhawk extract their Primarch. However the aircraft was shot down by enemy fire, but Alvarex was able to conduct a controlled crash landing, saving the life of the Raven Lord but badly injuring himself as a result.
