When Alexandros attends the Terran Conclave, he does so in attendance with High Chaplain Toven Madr, Legate Prisfirah Sauhan of the Second Cohort, and Legate Mikhail Chukhay of the Sixth Cohort, along with a full squad of the Athenoi for protection.

State of the Fifth, 002.M30
 
While the Halcyon Wardens had never shirked their duty, the Vanishing would test their abilities henceforth never before seen in their history. Every legionary was called upon to do all they could to protect humanity from this sudden catastrophe. By the year 002, only the most critical of those consequences had been resolved to allow the Conclave of Terra.
 
Much as a doctor applying triage, so did the Halcyon Wardens prioritise their efforts on a galactic scale. When the Conclave placed the Great Crusade on hold, the new High Regent declared that would be the impetus for officially shifting his legion to a primarily defensive force. The old ratio of two Wardens on crusade to one stabilizing new territory reversed. The Halcyon Warden protectorates became the forward bases of this new peacekeeping role and in turn would be hard pressed to meet the sudden demand of trying to institute order in a broken galaxy.
 
All throughout this, the Halcyon Wardens were underoing an evolution. While a solid organisational structure encompassed most of it, the largest units of the Fifth Legion, the Cohorts, had been ad hoc creations. Now they were standardised and applied to different missions based on astralgraphical location. Interestingly enough, the organisation concept had been finished before the Conclave and had assumed a Great Crusade footing. The first four Cohorts would be divided between the four outer segmenta, while the next three Cohorts were devoted to garrison duty across the galaxy. Now with the new strategic priorities, the first four Cohorts would be heavily reduced as brigades were shifted to the Fifth, Sixth, and Seventh Cohorts. The lone exception would be the Third Cohort, only offensive Cohort not to suffer any reduction in size. Instead, the majority of its strength was placed against the Orks of Ullanor to aid in attrition and containment operations.
 

In regards to the High Regent himself, the entire year would be spent in executing the duties of his new office. As the legions combatted the physical threats, Alexandros fought a dozen wars of words as he eliminated the remaining political threats of the Vanishing. Aided by Koschei and the new Council of Terra, significant strides would be made as the High Regent wielded the colossal resovoir of political capital saved over two centuries of politicking and negotiating.

 

Not once did Alexandros step on a battlefield proper during this time, much to the criticism of a few elite voices of the Imperial War Machine. Additional struggle would rear itself against the new reforms implemented by him at the Conclave's recommendation. These too would cause negative feedback that would rebound in the following years. But that report is for another time.
