”They will call us traitors. They will spit on our victories and our accomplishments. But when the flames have died and humanity rises from the ashes of this war, they will know what we fight for.”
–Lord Chancellor Zhukelion, the Bronze General

THE WARRIORS OF PEACE
Numeration: XVII (The Jin numerals 十七 are more prevalent among the legion)
Primogenitor: Known only as the Jade General
Cognomen (Prior): The Warriors At Peace, The Silent Legion
Allegiance: Socius Solicitus
Legiones Astartes Rules
Legiones Astartes (Warriors of Peace): All units with this special rule may always attempt to regroup regardless of casualties.
The Way of Jin: All units with the Legiones Astartes: Warriors of Peace rule receive an immunity based on how many units are within six inches of them. If one unit is within six inches, the unit automatically passes Pinning tests. If two units are within six inches of the unit, the unit automatically passes Fear tests. If three units are within six inches of the unit, the unit automatically passes Morale tests.
Martial Honor: All characters with the Legiones Astartes: Warriors of Peace rule must issue challenges when able.
Unlike other legions, the Warriors of Peace approach warfare as one would any vocation. To them, warfare is their duty. Neither given into either the elation of slaughter or the despair of defeat, the Warriors of Peace maintain their stoicism in battle, no matter the odds they are against. It is only when a Warrior is at peace within himself does he achieve true mastery of the art of war.
This eerie detachment, combined with the pariahs serving in their ranks, has intimidated both foe and friend alike. Among the few exceptions are, strangely, the Mechanicum. As the Warrior of Peace seeks to shed himself of fruitless emotion in battle, the tech-adept seeks to shed himself of fruitless flesh.
