I'd thought the Phaeton-pattern Stormeagle was the Obscura-pattern - now, can I propose that we rename it to that? It makes more sense for it to be designed there.

Sure, I guess. I don't see why not.

I thought Obscura-pattern referred to the special underwater-working Jump Pack the Scions used?

 

its Obscura-Pattern because its fabricated on the Forge Moon of Obscura.

XIXth Legion Praetor
Coeratas
Captain of the 18th Company
gallery_92883_15463_253706.png

While not part of the vaunted Deka, Coeratas was a far more powerful and influential officer than the title of captain would suggest, having commanded battalion-strength forces on multiple occasions during the Great Crusade. Like many of his brethren, he had earned numerous plaudits during the Qarith Crusade, fighting under Pionus’ direct command in the planetfall operation on Prime.

Coeratas led the Scions detachment aboard Star Fort Aphron above Untara, and when the trap was sprung he responded swiftly, putting the Untaran Benthiers to the sword in uncompromising fashion. Coeratas’ initiative ensured that the Scions and their allies quickly took control of Aphron, turning its weapons upon the enemy and beating off the initial attack by The Drowned. When the Folorn appeared with the second wave, Coeratas was persuaded to retreat by his lieutenants and pulled back what assets he could, saving thousands of lives but abandoning more to a last stand. He evaded the murderous attentions of Yarlath Keelsplitter, but it was noted that Coeratas felt profound guilt for months afterwards that he had survived, while so many of those under his command had not, and this manifested as brooding anger throughout the voyage back to Iona. For this reason Pionus was slow to appoint him to one of the vacant positions on the Deka, only doing so on the eve of the Subjugation of Zbruch.

Coeratas’ armour, easily recognisable as the Cyma variant of MK IV warplate, makes few concessions to rank and ornamentation. The Scions eschewed any thing would unnecessarily compromise the streamlining of their armour, and their flat command structure was reflected in this too. However, on his right greave the downward-facing trident and lightning symbol specifically commemorates the Company's honour of fighting alongside their Primarch. Coeratas’ Waveblade sword, distinguished by its inbuilt suspensor-generators, likewise signifies an honoured warrior of the XIXth.

Obscura-pattern Storm Eagle

 

 

Designed by Legion techmarines, the Obscura-Pattern Storm Eagle was conceived specifically to be operable in aquatic environments as well as atmospheric and void missions. However, due to its necessity to be resistant to the crushing pressures usually found at the deepest depths of ocean worlds, it has a bulkier and more reinforced structure compared to other Storm Eagle Patterns. While this requires pilots to be specially trained to pilot the Obscara-Pattern, the vehicle itself enjoys a greater resistance to anti-air and anti-vehicle weaponry. 

 

Since it must be able to operate in two very different environments, the Phaeton-Pattern boasts las and volkite weaponry which operates as lethally under the waves or among the stars. Additionally, given its reinforced cargo bays, it is not unheard of for Scions to equip the vehicle with a single depth charge, which, with proper application, can be used successfully in any environment. However, because it requires the ability to operate in two contrasting environments, production is an ornery process that requires a great deal of resources and time. This leads to the Phaeton-Pattern being used almost exclusively by the Scions Hospitalier, with the Drowned being a distant second.

I'd like to add Galen Diomes as a character for the future.

Maybe as a later addition?

This is my mod voice. There are many like it, but this one is mine. My mod voice is a means to an end.

Let us avoid it, alright?

I feel like we'll need a Heroes and Villains of the Insurrection Red Book for the likes of him, Akylles and Thirgen.
