When Captain Sicarius and the Ultramarines of the second company arrived on the world of Black Reach, the Orks of Warboss Zanzag already controlled most of the northern continent. Only three of the twelve large hive cities were still standing. When the battle cruiser, Valin's Revenge, arrived in orbit, the defenses of Ghospora, the largest of the three hive cities, were about to fall. Wasting no time, Sicarius ordered his Battle Brothers to rejoin their Drop Pods as the Valin's Revenge began an orbital bombardment. The Drop Pods landed just after the bombardment was over. In a brief but bloody battle, the Ultramarines crushed the Orks against the walls of Ghospora, forcing a bloodied and beaten Zanzag to flee. No sooner had the battle ended than Sicarius set off in pursuit, leaving some of his Brothers to reinforce Ghospora's defenses.
With Sicarius and most of the Ultramarines gone, the Orks renewed their attack on Ghospora. Unfortunately for the Greenskins, Sicarius had foreseen this possibility and several Thunderfire guns had been deployed. As soon as the assault began, a salvo of shells tore through the tight Orkish ranks. The Orks were annihilated and fled. Meanwhile, the hunt continued. Reconnaissance patrols of Thunderhawks and Land Speeders identified several Ork forts along the Blackwallow River. Within a week, Sicarius had planned and carried out attacks against each of them, but Zanzag was nowhere to be found. After the fourth fort was reduced to a pile of rubble, Sicarius had to respond to an urgent request from the Planetary Defense Forces defending the hive city of Sulphora. Torn apart, Sicarius abandoned his hunt and headed south to Sulphora, leaving two squads of scouts, under the command of Sergeant Telion, with the heavy burden of finding the Warboss Ork.
