Alvaro Suarez was the first High Protector (Chapter Master) of the Mourning Wardens Space Marine Chapter. Originally, he was the senior-most Crimson Fists cadre ordered to help stand up a new Chapter created from the Crimson Fists' lineage. Created during the 26th Founding, the Mourning Wardens were a young Chapter for a few centuries, which led Alvaro to lead his Chapter to ever greater acts of devotion to prove their worth. Tragically, he would die a year before the return of the resurrected Ultramarines Primarch Roboute Guilliman, but his legacy still lives on in the deeds of his Chapter.
Alavaro Suarez was the highest ranking Crimson Fists selected to form the original cadre of officers for the Mourning Wardens. He was a massive and especially stubborn warrior, far keener to wield bolter and shoot his enemy from far away than to charge to the front. Alvaro proved to be a smart and devoted tactician, making great use of the wisdom of the Codex Astartes and yet being able to draw his own strategies, giving him a great string of victories. Alas, his life came to an end a year before the return of the Ultramarines Primarch Roboute Guilliman, when an Iron Warriors warband came out of the Warp on the world of Carnas V. This death and the following defeat marred his success and proven a cautionary tale for his Brothers from Occiana.
