Bio: This man is a mystery as their is not much information circulating about Horus other than that he is the right hand of Set and works with the Ghost Division, he is as well a member of an order of warriors called the Medjai; this order is even more secretive seeing that their is nothing out their on this order other than what has already been reported on already, so your guess is as good as mine about them. Though what we we do know about Horus is that he is a master swordsman, and adept that has been working the Sentinels for generations and has been hunting down the evils that lurk within the shadows and threaten humanity. We know that he was a crucial part of the protection of the English soil during the elvish invasion and War of the Nobles, he stood tall with the rest of his men for thirty days and thirty nights while he fended off hordes of the greatest elven warriors that would try to seize England; it would be the Sentinels that would not only make sure that England was protected from the Elven invaders, but it would also allow the English Military and Steel Legion access to Ireland and eventually take control of Northern Shores of Ireland. Though for the Sentinels this would not only be their greatest stand, but there greatest loss, these brave warriors would loose countless numbers during the battle as they dug deep into the trenches, fighting against a greater foe and using tactics long forgotten was their one an only advantage; trench warfare was no longer common practice and it was the tactics of the Crimson Ghost that would prove to be the turning point during that engagement.
Overnight the Sentinels would become national hero’s and would be considered the most truly honourable and noble of warriors, they would be honoured world wide for their sacrifice and their bravery and honour in the face of most certain doom. Horus’s combative prowess would be shown as he ran through the dead man zone from trench to trench to protect his fellow brothers in arms from being overrun by the invading forces. His dual wielding scimitar style was just to much for the elves that where used to a more traditional European swordsmanship, though even Horus wouldn’t escape that great battle unscathed and would ignore his wounds in order to guarantee victory for his brothers; Horus is considered to be one of the best swordsman alive and yes their are many that can claim that title, though I wouldn’t wish to see these true masters of the blade contest for the title. Each swordsman knows their strengths and weaknesses and when they are bested, any man that is brave enough to charge into machine gun fire with just a sword in his hand is a man that I never wish to challenge their prowess.
Though just as fast as the Sentinels would become world renowned for the bravery and honour in battle, they would become known for their brutality and sheer lack of concern for the innocent lives they once stood tall to protect; Horus is no different, once the rules of battle changed and they engaged Free Bird anyone and everyone could become a threat and enemy so sadly they must be sent back to earth in order to protect humanity form the great evil that lurks within Free Bird. Horus never really had a moral compass to begin with, he just did as he was ordered to and was well rewarded with sacks of coin and cash for his efforts. So for Horus once the Crimson Ghost changed the rules and started to mix ancient warfare with modern guerrilla warfare he just followed orders and figured his commander knew best and Set would not place a man in command that would bring them to their demise. Horus was correct in his judgement call, and as the years progressed he watched as the Crimson Ghosts tactics would bring down Free Bird camp after Free Bird camp as well they would help push the axis of evil out of hiding and into the direct fire of the Deaths Hand.
Horus worked and trained many within the order, though he still considers Colonel Douglas O’Bannon a true brother and owes him a life debt for when Winter Rat saved his life by taking a snipers bullet to the chest and kept fighting while blood pooled at Winter Rats feet, Horus on that day swore an oath to O’Bannon and hopefully that debt will not have to be repaid, but if it’s needed Horus is more than prepared to meet his judgement for O’Bannon. Also he is extremely protective of his commander and will defend the Crimson Ghost with everything he has and more, this is one man that might be a legendary swordsman, but he is just as much a master of the shadows and don’t think if you can’t see Horus he isn’t around; that would be one fatal mistake, also to think that this man is just a swordsman is another fatal mistake Horus is just as deadly with a firearm as he is with a blade so be warned.
With the Sentinels now being called the Ghost Division partially do to their mysterious abilty to appear as ghostly warriors of days gone by, and a tribute to one of the greatest of them O’Bannon and his original military units name being the Ghost Team Six. Either legend works, though since very few people can actually prove that the Sentinels even still exist and have’t long since fallen in battle. It’s all speculation, many claim to have seen these men in action as of recent, thats why I am writing this article otherwise it would be a waist of time to write about a man that might already be long dead and burred; but the sources that have claimed to seen the Ghost Division in action are credible and the UCAS seems to be very nervous and their is heavy radio chatter about this division being within the UCAS, I will have to chock back my scepticism and pass the warning about the Ghost Division and this man Horus, if he goes back to back with another swordsman nothing will ever pass and he has been able to deflect bullets directly back at the person who pulled the trigger. So yes he uses some very old adept abilities but the scariest aspect of Horus is he has some ability lost to the ages and probably taught to him by the order of Medjai that causes him to form mirror images of himself for a period of time and when he does this, he truly overwhelms his opponent or can take on multiple enemies at once.
Horus should be considered very dangerous and absurdly loyal to the Sentinels, so be very cautious when dealing with him, as what information I do have is from rumours, ghost stories and legend with only a small of actual documented accounts. Horus is the real deal and if he works alongside Set and we have seen what Set is capable of as of recent I would be very worried about Horus and the rest of the Order. The UCAS is worried, the Natives are cowering and Aztlan is preparing for the Ghost Division; Britain is preparing for Set and this unit this means that the Ghost Division is more than just a ghost story and one should clear the streets and close the shutters when they are seen marching into battle; for the ghosts of change are here and they are after the evil that lurks within the UCAS lets just hope that evil is not you and I.
