Notable Angels of Fire
- Captain Amaras - Captain Amaras was the commander of the Angels of Fire contingent which took part in the Third War for Armageddon. During the early stages of the campaign he found himself at odds with both Commissar Sebastian Yarrick and Chaplain Merek Grimaldus of the Black Templars. Due to the lack of information concerning the Chapter's ranking structure, it is unknown what level of authority he holds as a captain. Some Imperial observers have stated that Amaras might even hold the esteemed position and authority of Chapter Master of the Angels of Fire. His status and actions following the Imperial victory on Armageddon are unknown.
