FOUNDING OF THE ORDER OF THE GLORIOUS REPRISAL

The Order of Our Martyred Lady established a Commandery of 186 sisters of the world of Delmarus in the year 003.M38 to stand sentinel at the edge of the galaxy and to ensure the light of the Emperor shone ever on in that desolate region of space. The original Commandery was lead by Seraphim Superior Vendela, who also held the rank of Canoness Commander. As the years turned to centuries, the Commandery grew apart from its parent Preceptory and adopted its own customs, which where especially influenced by the growing number of native Delmarian sisters. In the year 473.M38, the Order of the Glorious Reprisal was officially founded. The new order took its name from the vindictive, almost bloodthirsty attitude of the people of Delmarus. Their all black robes and armour (pre Third War for Armageddon Order of Our Martyred Lady) where painted with silver, white, and gold in honor of the glorious light of the Emperor and his holy vengeance. The first Canoness of the order was sister Alexius, who’s Eviscerator has been passed down to each of her successors.

 

DELMARUS

Delmarus is characterized by fertile but dry farmland in the mid-latitude regions, brutally hot desserts around the equator, and small polar ice caps. There are few large bodies of water, however, most of the population is concentrated near the planet’s largest freshwater lake, Kellegog, in the northern hemisphere. The Convent of the Order of the Glorious Reprisal is located almost directly south of lake Kellegog, on the equator. This site was chosen both for its remoteness, and for the harsh environment it provides. Both are assets in a defense of the Convent, and the harsh conditions serve to make each day a penance for the sisters who live there.

 

TALMION BATTLEGROUP

The isolation of the Talmion system makes it necessary for the order to maintain a small battlegroup for transport and defense. These ships are usually salvaged from Imperial Navy scrap yards. The majority of the crews of ships in the Talmion Battlegroup are native Delmarians, and a sister of the order captains each of them.

  • Sundering Light (Dauntless-class Light Cruiser) Flagship
  • Herald of Vengeance (Endeavour-class Light Cruiser)
  • Breaker of Heretics (Tempest-class Strike Frigate) carries assault boats
  • Repentance in Death (Tempest-class Strike Frigate) carries assault boats
  • Dawnhammer (Sword-class Heavy Frigate)
  • Flame Transcendent (Viper-class Destroyer) carries bearding torpedoes

 

PRESENT ACTIVITIES

Although the defense of Delmarus and nearby planets is a priority for the order, Canoness Raedia has embarked on a “Crusade of the Emperor’s Deliverance” with 87 sisters, including Seraphim Superior Katelien, in the Sundering Light and the Repentance in Death. The sisters of the order have become restless in the recent years: they have engaged in only one hundred seventy-eight battles and skirmishes in the past five years. This crusade has already taken the order across dozens of systems and into nigh countless engagements, fighting in the name of the Emperor and defending his realm.

 

COMBAT DOCTRINE

The Order of the Glorious Reprisal possesses relatively few vehicles, but reveres them no less than any other faithful servant of the Emperor. Above all else sisters of the order wish to crush their foe in close combat. Through strict discipline, iron will, and liberal application of holy promethium to burn their foes they are almost always able to repress compulsion when the tactical situation calls for it. The sisters of the order detest being beholden to any outsiders, even other branches of the Ecclesiarchy. By the same token, they are not inclined to hold others in their debt.

 

ROLL OF HONOR

003.M38 - The Delmarus Commandery is established by the Order of our Martyred Lady.

032.M38 - WAAAGH! Gorthung enters the Talmion system. Seraphim Superior Vendela leads the defense of Delmarus, turning the tide against the greenskins, and personally slaying sixty-four orks.

074.M38 - The Delmarus Commandery fights its first major engagement after the death of Seraphim Superior Vendela, ambushing an Eldar scouting force. The foe is annihilated, but at no small cost to the Commandery.

473.M38 - The Order of the Glorious Reprisal is founded.

516.M38 - Battle for Delmarus -The Chaos Lord Mronthrouk the Revealer launches a crusade in the name of Tzeentch out of the Garon Nebula. Within weeks the chaos war fleet surrounds Delmarus. With casualties mounting and reinforcements caught in the currents of the warp, the sisters of the order launch a desperate offensive. During the ensuing void combat Saint Sister Victinia, Captain of the Resolute Shield steered her ship straight toward the broadside batteries of the traitor flagship, ramming into it at full speed amid a thousand brilliant fires. The Saint then led her crew into the maw of the waiting chaos cultists, cutting a trail of divine vengeance through their midst. She plunged her power sword into the ships reactor, sundering it and breaking the back of the fledgling crusade.

573.M38 - The order fights a number of skirmishes with Eldar raiders in the wake of Chaos Lord Mronthrouk’s crusade.

588.M38 - Sister-Captain Victinia is canonized by Ecclesiarch Decius VI and is named the patron saint of the Order of the Glorious Reprisal.

554.M40 - A ship emerges from the warp just outside the Talmion system. Its passengers and crew have been corrupted and possessed by the daemons of the warp. The sisters of the order fight to contain the heretics until the Imperial Navy arrives to dispose of the tainted vessel.

681.M41 - An uprising led by a chaos cult begins in one of the outlying settlements on Delmarus. The sisters carry out a purge of the region and the cult is destroyed, but not before several dozen sisters are killed and over ten thousand acres of farmland are burned to the ground.

                   993.M41 - Canoness Raedia launches the “Crusade of the Emperor’s Deliverance”

 

ORDER ORGANIZATION

As with all of the orders militant the Order of the Glorious Reprisal is led by a Canoness. Unlike many other orders militant, the traditional second to the Canoness is the most senior superior of the order’s Seraphim, who goes into battle with the armour and weapons of Seraphim Superior Vendela, which are known as the Instruments of Reprisal and are the most prized relics of the order. Beyond this the structure of the order is very much like any other, except that Seraphim hold even more sway than in another order. The order’s current Canoness is Raedia, and the current bearer of the Instruments of Reprisal is Seraphim Superior Katelien.

 

Warhammer 40k Order Of The Glorious Reprisal Colors

 

BELIEFS

The sisters of the order believe that all who oppose the Emperor are doomed to fall. Even more, they believe it is their sacred right and duty to deliver the Emperor’s vengeance onto their foes, thereby fulfilling their doom. Past a minor offence, which is still reason for major penance, there is no room for compassion. Repentance is only accepted in extraordinary circumstances. Therefore, when a sister of the order commits a serious offence against the Emperor and their order they are not cast out as a Sister Repentia; rather, these former sisters are pressed into service in the furthest depths of one of the ships of the Talmion Battlegroup. They traditionally load the torpedoes or preform other dangerous tasks related to the ships weapons. If their ship is boarded, the sisters in exile on the ship will be the first to respond to the enemy assault, fighting with tools and autopistols. It is traditional to reinstate sisters in exile who preform extreme acts of heroism or self-sacrifice and survive.

 

RECRUITMENT

The isolation of Delmarus means that the order sees few new recruits directly from the Schola Progenium, and those that do come are often seen as outsiders, even within the order, although a strong fighting spirit and a thirst for the blood of heretics goes a long way in smoothing the integration process. The vast majority of the sisters of the Order of the Glorious Reprisal are natives of Delmar. They are recruited at a young age, usually before they are ten years old, but many are not orphans. It is considered a great honor to be selected to fight alongside the sisters of the order. In the same way, all but a few of the preachers and priests that fight alongside the order are native to the planet, although they live in the villages and cities around lake Kellegog. The close ties between the order and the general populace has created a deep hatred of anyone with psychic powers, and anyone who manifests psychic ability is quickly killed rather than sent into the care of the black ships of the Adeptus Astra Telepathica.

 

RITUALS IN REPRISAL

Sisters of the order have penned some of the most complex harmonies ever produced in praise of the Emperor. Each sister has some vocal skill, and hymns of praise and supplication can be heard almost constantly in and around the order’s convent on Delmarus. Complex battle hymns are begun before each engagement, each squad contributing a unique harmonic line to the whole of the melody. Once secrecy is no longer necessary, the hymn is broadcast out of each the amp in each sister’s power armour, and out of the laud hailers of their vehicles. The lengthiest of these hems stretches for over eight hours, a glorious account of the final battle of Saint Sister Victinia.

 

RELICS OF VENGANCE

Instruments of Reprisal: The armor, jump pack, power sword, and plasma pistol of Seraphim Superior Vendela have come to be collectively called the Instruments of Reprisal. Despite numerous repairs they shine just as brightly as the day the Delmarian Commandery was founded. Their original detailing and coloration has been painstakingly maintained throughout the centuries, and they are currently bourn into battle by Seraphim Superior Katelien.

Radiance of Majesty: Thus was named the gilded Eviscerator of Canoness Alexius upon her death. Each succeeding Canoness of the order has etched a personal mark into one of its shining white teeth. Canoness Raedia is the current bearer of this weapon

 

BATTLE CRY

Any number of songs or chants might begin before a battle, but some of the most prevalent phrases among the sisters of the order are, “Swift is the Emperor’s Vengeance!” “Faith, fire, and death!” and “Victinia, lend us your strength!”

 

HEROINES OF THE ORDER OF THE GLORIOUS REPRISAL

Seraphim Superior Vendela: Seraphim Superior of The Order of Our Martyred Lady, and the first Canoness Commander of the Delmarus Commandery. The sisters of the order even in the 41st millennium revere her and her armour and weapons are some of the order’s most sacred relics.

Canoness Alexius: The first Canoness of the Order of the Glorious Reprisal born on Delmarus. She led the fledgling order through the crusade of Chaos Lord Mronthrouk and Her Eviscerator is the traditional weapon of the Canonesses of the order.

Saint Sister-Captain Victinia: Through her heroic actions she became the hero of the battle of Delmarus, an Imperial Saint, and the patron saint of the Oreder of the Glorious Reprisal, even though she was not a native Delmarian

Canoness Raedia: The youngest Canoness in the order’s history, she has earned the respect of those she leads. Raedia is native to Delmarus and has launched almost half of the order on a “Crusade of the Emperor’s Deliverance.”

Seraphim Superior Katelien: Current bearer of the Instruments of Reprisal, she is a shining example of the strength and grace of the Seraphim. As is traditional, Katelien serves as Canoness Raedia’s second in command.

Veteran Superior Margrettia: She has lead the nineteen other sisters of Squad Dominus for over a century, and trained Canoness Raedia, as well as her predecessor. Her fervent belief and long decades of service make her and invaluable asset to the order.

I know. I could have sworn that this ended at the end of the month (I have a week off next week and I was going to be able to complete my entry then) sad.png

Darn it sad.png

Once, a Novice Cantus came to me, troubled and uncertain. A slip of a girl, only a few strides down the eternal path leading her to the Golden Throne. She asked me a question. She asked me how we can ever truly understand what faith is. I told her that there is no coin to measure what we feel in our hearts. There are no scales upon which we might weigh the faith of one woman against another. There is only duty and blood. There are only deeds and words. There is only the service to the God-Emperor, and the price that demands from each Sister can only be known by Him. But know that whatever fears must be faced, whatever hardships endured, that price is forever worth its full cost.

Daughter of the Emperor (later Imperial Saint Katherine)

It is now. Now adding it to all of the other posts.

 

@Aquilanus, It was originally supposed to end on May 31st but I have tied it with closing of the doors to the ETL. That is probably the source of confusion.
