The tribes named amoung the Xth legion are those that were loyal to Niklaas during the Witch War. Others exist, some on both sides where extinguished during the war.
Esus – two white axes crossed on a black field
Chief Captain Hiram
Mogon- a red mountain crowned with white stars on black field
Chief Captain Endor
Legion psykers not sent to the Crucible of Embers were assigned to Mogon after the dissolution of the Xth legion librarius.
Esus and Mogon serve along side the 1445th Expeditionary Fleet under
mortal Lord Commander Tyr Askr
Nerius- a scepter clutched in a sea serpent's coils
Chief Captain Jehu of Tribe Nerius is Lord Commander of his own 333rd Expeditionary Fleet.
Grannus- twelve pointed golden sun disk on red field
Considered Niklaas’ own tribe includes First Company
Rudianos –red horse on white field
Smertrius –black dragon on white field
Tribe Smertrius deviates from common legion organization. Rather than variable sized Hosts Smertrius is divided into seven equal sized “Talons”. This tradition dates back to Obsailes and is illustrated in the Tribe’s heraldry, the black dragon having four talons on it’s right foot and three on it’s left.
Leucetios –silver lightning bolt on black field
Chief Captain Mykaal is the only commander beside Niklaas to have a Triakonta body guard
Intarabus –black wolf on white field
Vindonnus –black horse head breathing fire on white field
Barinthus- silver sword on black field
Thirgen is named Chief Captain after the Day of Revelation
Dispater- red spiked helm on black field
Ankou- two white scythe on red field
Most tribal names of Obsailes are associated with a fortified village and the surrounding territory. Ankou is the exception. The Ankou valley is a region free of most of the monstrous fauna that dominates the major continent. The people of the region lived simple agrarian lives. The success of Niklaas’ war against the Witch King saw one of that fiend’s followers flee to the area. There the witch discovered a people who did not fear the dark, who did not give their lands and property at mere threat. Niklaas arrived shortly and witnessed first hand the fearsome heart born by the people of Ankou. When the primarch took command of his legion he honored those simple farmers by adding their home’s name to the rolls of the Great Crusade.
