Ubbag Jules was one of the first 1000 of aspirants to be inducted from Barbarus, and pledge his allegiance to the Emperor of mankind. Ubbag ascended slowly through the ranks and was only recently promoted to the position of Section leader after the cleansing of Purbak IV. Ubbag, ever a stoic and fearless Legionnaire of the 2nd Company under Commander Grulgor, was promoted to Section Leader after he led a small detachment of Death Guard from the main battle line at the fall of Hydes' gate to hold the Venera river crossing for 36 hours. When the Death Guard were able to enforce Ubbag's position they found a torrential river choked with Xenos blood which ran like thick treacle and a defiant bulwark of just 7 filth covered Death Guard, holding out against a horde of atleast 2000 of the foul creatures, and more shockingly; completely free of ammunition. The bottleneck held firm and the crossing was secured, preventing the whole of West Gurret from being overrun - which would have added around 3 months to the campaign and put a stain on Grulgor's fledging career.
Commander Grulgor recognised the Blood covered Lieutenant - who now looked more akin to a death world savage - and exclaimed "only a true son of Barbarus could fight in conditions such as these, and only true sons we need to lead!"
Grulgor has put Ubbag in charge of 2000 Death Guard + Heavy armour for the spearhead attack on Valten. Acting directly under Ferrus Manus, we will see if the Orks hold the city gates against the X and XIV Legions.
