"Draigo is the best, because he's the absolutely most incorruptable of the incorruptable Grey Knights, even more incorruptable than the Purifiers, or even Crowe, who's more incorruptable than them, and doesn't need to bathe in blood to make himself even more incorruptable than he was five minutes ago, because he's DRAIGO!!1! and he's the most incorruptable and awesome and he gave Mortarion a wedgie, and beat up Nurgle, and lives in the Warp, and can't be corrupted because he's incorruptable where even the other incorruptable Grey Knights would be corrupted because they aren't as incorruptable as he is, but they're still incorruptable even though that makes no sense, but we can't let that get in the way of them being AWESOME because they're the GREY KNIGHTS, and he beats up daemons with no trouble whatsoever, even though Dreadknights were created explicitly so the Grey Knights could beat the Greater Daemons Draigo has no trouble with, and he uses forbidden sorcery because he's so incorruptable, and, and, and... What? Why are they like this? Because they're the Grey mother-fething Knights, that's why, and they're AWESOME!!" (c)some English-speaking fan.

Для русской подписи процитирую себя:

Боги Хаоса лордам Терры: Знаете, мы готовы отказаться от всех территориальных претензий к Империуму, только заберите от нас своего Кальдора Драйго.
Лорды Терры богам Хаоса: Знаете, мы не можем. После того, что вы рассказали, мы сами его боимся.

They made him utterly overpowered with a single sentence. Was it the fact that he's literally incorruptible? No. Was it the fact that he lives in the Warp without harm? No. It was this one single sentence from the Grey Knights codex;


"He now roams the Warp, no daemon or god strong enough to slay him"


Ladies and gentlemen, the Emperor was confused as to why humans require faith to exist, all he need do is look and despair at the power of the raw, pure faith that he himself inspired xDD

To be fair, he could also be the Silver Knight of Slaanesh.


Or, he could be utterly bonkers like in TTS from all this time in the Warp. x)

Here's a way to make him less of a mary sue: make him insane, as a result of spending so long in the warp. He's still pious, worships the Emperor, and whatever, but any psyker he comes across that isn't a Grey Knight, he will kill, even if it is loyal to the Imperium. How about that?

Got one better for you: Kaldor died in mere days after entering the Warp, is resurrected, rampages through the dominion of the Chaos Gods, is killed at the end of the day by Daemons or exhaustion and the process repeats.
MrMadManiac's avatar
Oh yeah, I heard that theory, too.

Embarrassing that I learned about the Grey Knights' team-killing habits aFTER posting that.

Someone beat me to it?

Nobody told me the Grey Knights indulge team-killing. That's Kharn's headache.
MrMadManiac's avatar
Yeah, I remember something like that on the 1d4chan page about him.

Or, at least that's what I recall reading somewhere, or maybe it was from Arch, or Tactica. But yeah. Because they have to be OH "SHO SHOOPA SEICRET," they apparently cull imperial guard regiments, wherever they're deployed. Astartes, they just wipe the memories of. And the Sisters...

OK. :)

Gork's Feet, the Dark Angels and the Alpha Legion aren't THIS secretive!!
MrMadManiac's avatar
Yeah, but that makes it just 'DAT MUCH MOAR GRIMDANK!' Üuuuuug...

That's partially why I prefer the Deathwatch. They're effectively space marine-space marines, but they've actually earned their prestige. Plus, it makes me think of them as a truly standardized imperial space marine, and I like to think their training with other chapters can make them double as inter-chapter diplomats. Y'know. Just adding more nuance.

With a fictional universe as depressing and destructive as that, I think humiliating Matt Ward's Daemon of invulnerability would make for fit comedic relief.

More nuance must've been what Gdubs was thinking by bringing back Gulliman for the Rising Storm event.

I really hope he either dies, get corrupted by Slaanesh or just be nerfed down. He's so ridiculously powerful it's getting annoying.
You should see the "Hateful Feud at Khaine's Gate" episode of "If the Emperor Had a Text-to-Speech Device."  Draigo fails, and he fails HARD, since the episode's events were decided from actual tabletop play, and Alfabusa's rolls for Draigo SUCKED! :D

Plus, Alfabusa (and Gemineye's voice-acting) do an excellent job of deflating Draigo's awesomeness by making him such a scatterbrained wacko that his powers don't see consistent or practical use.
