But there are still rumours that Loken could survive in caves of the city together with Ryllanor. But even if he is dead he remains my first favourite Warhammer character. For because of him I began to draw W40 fan-art.

Well its likely he is no more. He was damaged to a point where he is nothing but pulpy mess of himself crushed under a tomb of a collapsed building of Isstvan III and if I was not misstaken Horus ordered anouther firing secion just to be sure everything is annaliated. He has no chance I am afraid. Oh and if you like him honesly he is the steriotypical version of an Astartes for a LOT of characters are exactly like him in the Warhammar 40,000 literature. He is reffered to as the "cookie cutter Marine" look up the blogs sometime it might be interesting for you I know I enjoy it.

Spoiler: Loken went on to becoming one of the founding members of the Grey Knights

How could be become a founding member of the Grey Knights since he's not a Psyker? Also the Grey Knights are relatively unknown where their gene-seed comes from this would be kinda ruin for them since it would imply Horus the Greatest Heretic eva!!! is in fact the primarch of the most loyal chapter ever.

Well first off Lexicanum has been wrong before..... many many many times in the past granted its a decent source I have no other backing that Loken lived he likely died man.... a horrible death as I stated before so its seems like a snowballs chance in hell the dude even could be identified after all that happened. Plus I've not seen anything talking about ANYONE from the The Betrayal at Istvaan III surviving I mean if anyone did means Horus did a shit job which he clearly did not. So uhhh yeah man gotta have better evidence than Lexicanum, till than I hold the view in reserve till better evidence or cannon says otherwise. Not fan fiction or any other random crap on the interwebs.

It's also on the wikia for warhammer.
One of the Grey Knights books.

And probably in the Horus Herasy books. Im only on the 3rd one.

The grey knights were originally the loyal members of the heritic legions. When they arrived on Terra, the were told the Emperor has plans for them. Because they stayed loyal in the face of Daemons, they became the Grey Knights.
