First Captain Apollo Diomedes
Captain Apollo Diomedes commanded the Blood Ravens' Honor Guard for almost two centuries. He led the chapter's elite with honor and skill. Diomedes' most famous victory came on the ravaged penal world of Obscurus. On the same day, he and his brothers defeated the Ork Warboss Manstompa Megakilla and the Chaos Sorcerer Anupharis the Cruel. After that victory Diomedes was elevated to the command of the Chapter Master's own honor guard, becoming Azariah Kyras's most public agent among the chapter's far-flung battle brothers. In the game, you have a choice whether to attack and kill him or to just destroy his stronghold, as well as some of his heretic bodyguards such as Apothecary Galan and his Terminator Squads. His health and attacks posess similar traits to the Force Commander, but much stronger.
Diomedes is the main character of Dawn of War II: Retribution, still loyal to the Emperor - and Kyras - but he keeps the condemned renegade Cyrus alongside him, still doubtful. When Kyras drops the charade on Typhon, Diomedes is devastated, and has to struggle to overcome his hurt pride.
Captain Apollo Diomedes is voiced by Keith Szarabajka.
