Health Record:
No notable physical illness, beyond Chapter indoctrination standards.

During a particularily dangerous mission with the Legio, Ferrum suffered near lethal injuries at the hands of an arch-enemy's power sword.
His left leg was pierced and flesh burned away, however the thigh bone was left intact. - This injury has since been repaired with vat cloned flesh.
In the same incident he was cleaved down the left side with a Power Sword.
The cut was clean, but it severed muscles, tendons and nerves in his left arm, nearly destroyed his left primary lung and damaged his melanocrome organ along with much of the musculature and nerves in the left part of his chest.
Ferrum suffered heavy blood loss and nearly died; only through immidiate help, evacuation and medical attention did he survive.
The enemy also left him with another terrible wound by carving a huge A into his allready damaged chest.

Since then, Ferrums wounds have healed or been repaired.
He was left in a comatose state for a long while as his body was repaired by Artificers, Apotecharies and nano-module medimechs.
His leg is healed and fully functional, his left lung and arm where amputated and replaced with a bionic lung labeled GA.L.06. and a Sensory Grade Bionic Left Arm labeled GA.BA.mk-S.19. - His chest also recieved further bionic modification to muscles, nerves and rib plate support structure.
The damage to his Melanochrome organ has been repaired by his bodies own self repair capabilities.
The A carved into Ferrum's chest left him with a horrible scar, but it has now been repaired and exchanged for a scarring-tattoo of the Imperial Aquilla.

At the Crusade for Antioc, Ferrum was subject to heavy internal and external first, second and some third degree burns, as well as breaking 22 minour and major bones; getting light blunt trauma; a light concussion; a dislocated right shoulder and irreparable damage to his bionic arm, when falling from orbit to the planet's surface. - These injuries where later repaired and healed to some extent; including installing a new bionic arm during the Crusade itself.
Following this, Ferrum then fought while still suffering heavily from his injuries, when the Legio Battle Barge "Purgator" was boarded by traitor forces.
This battle resulted in Ferrum's bionic arm again being damaged and his bionic chest being cut open to such an extent that his old injuries reopened; Causing neurological feedback overload that had Ferrum go into Suspended Animation.
These injuries and bionic damages where later mended and repaired after he unintentionally spent close to a week in stasis.
The Apotecharium has detected a slight decrease to his left heart's efficiency after he was cut open the second time (by a Traitor Word Bearer).
It is expected he will recover fully with time however.

Notable physical features:
Ferrum has a large scarring-tattoo of the Imperial Aquilla etched into his chest.
He bears a profound round scar on his left thigh after a burning injury.
The left side of his chest bears a 32 cm long, red scar where he was cut open.
His chest's left side is also partly metalic due to his bionic implants.
Ferrums left arm is a silver and black plas-steel and adamtine S grade bionic arm with the serial number: GA.BA.mk-S.19. etched into it.

Psychological / Emotional Profile:
During his service with 6th Company, Ferrum was subject to a spesifically harsh experience where a large quantity of his Company was killed at the hands of the Red Corsairs. - This seems to have left a particular hatred of said enemy faction.

It does seem that this near death experience has left Ferum slightly mentally scarred as he sees his defeat as a great failure.
However, under consultation with Chaplains he has managed to turn his guilt into a mental drive for martial perfection, and his hatred of the Red Corsairs has most definitivly not suffered from his injuries.

At Antioc, the time Ferrum spent in stasis did not affect him mentally, as he was already in a state of suspended animation, but he was left somewhat confused as to the memories of the Purgator Battle.
