Redoubtable Ito of the Wardens of Light
Piisuke Ito, as he was known in life, was a great warrior of the XIth Legion, rising to captain the Fifth Company in the third decade of the Great Crusade. He was one of the few of that proud company to survive the gruelling Conquest of Vulspid. There he and his warriors fought for three hellish days against the arachnoid Vulsp, though he was crippled at the battle’s height by the vile xenos and barely clung to life when the Legion finally held the field. By dint of his rank and reputation, Ito was ensconced in one of the first Ironclad Dreadnoughts issued to the XIth. Decades later, having carved out a still lengthier tally of honours, he became one of the first Wardens of Light to inhabit a Leviathan ironform.
 
Centurion Paleon Ephricos
Second Echelon, 15th Assault Company
Ephricos was one of the foremost practitioners of jump-assault combat in the XVIIIth Legion, having first come to prominence in the Compliance of Bulta Majoris. He rose to command the 15th Assault Company during the Doljen Conquest, and became one of the few Steel Legionnaires who was widely known as a duellist and field commander.

Ancient Theophilos Eustathios

 

Formerly an Assault Marine maimed during the purgation of the Blood-Iron Kindred, Theophilos was granted ascension to the form of an AccipitrineDreadnaught and assigned to stand guard over the sky-cities of Silvarion Sul as one of the elite brotherhood of Ancients known as the Fylkas. Though many among the Fylakas preferred entombment within one of the Argent Scions’ unique Suulite based variants of the technology, the Accipitrine was also to be found in uncommon numbers among their ranks, its aerial capabilities most suitable for the defence of sky-borne constructs.

 

Theophilos proved this concept amply when the Xanite remnant headed a suicidal raid upon Silvarian Sul in vengeance for their fallen Forge World, the Ancient duelling Arlatax pattern automata across Sky-City plazas in a frenetic combat that saw many of its foes cast into the sky below.

The Iron Bears 32nd Clan Company

 

The 32nd Clan Company, at the time known as Clan Steffen, had been reprovisioning on the world of Gutald after extensive campaigning when the first rumours of strife began to abound in the Imperium. Unwilling to set sail to ports and armies of uncertain loyalties in these uncertain times, Clan Steffen would remain on the world for months until open war hasdindisputably broken out. Even when this was clear, the Chief of the Company, Branden Steffen, ordered that the forces under his command remain planetbound in order to ensure the opoulace’s protection, as the world’s isolated and un-militarised provenance made it vulnerable to attack both from ireful Regenticists and marauders exploiting the general chaos of the civil war. Clan Steffen and its attached auxiliary forces would see of two xenos incorsions, three raids by unaffiliated marauders and five light Regenticist reprisals before Kozja’s subordinates assigned a task force to siege the planet proper and eliminate this potential thorn in their sides. Over the following months Clan Steffen would suffer heavy losses before withdrawing, alongside the local populace, into the planet’s extensive series of underground caverns. From here the campaign transitioned into a series of brutal holding actions and hit and run attacks.#

 

The 32nd would only be relieved until sometime after Chief Steffen had been slain, with Halr Fosse having been elected to lead in his stead. Though the Daughter’s of Dae’rrd had found ample recruits willing to fight from among the surviving locals, the Iron Bears had no such means to replenish their strength. Those that remained became hardened veterans, accustomed to making their numbers count in the cramped tunnel warfare. As allegiances and battle-fronts collapsed in the anarchy that characterised the fallout of the mid-war revelations, the VIth Legion were finally able to dispatch reinforcements to the beleaguered company. Fosse had no intention of abandoning his predecessor’s oaths, and the 32nd only moved on when the Emperor called for a consolidation of the forces under His command for the march to Terra. Shaped by their experiences thus far, the 32nd remained an elite, infantry focused clan-company, reserved from the main lines of battle until the time came to drag the enemy out from the tunnels and bunkers of the fortresses erected to barr the Emperor’s path. Legend has it that Fosse lead the 32nd even to the Siege of Terra itself, plying his skill with shot-gun and trench-axe amidst the fierce chamber to chamber fighting within the former palace walls.

The 35th Grand Company (Armored)
Cardinal Guard
 
The 35th Grand Company of the 7th Cohort Wings of Winter, 4th Ordinal, XIXth Legiones Astartes Cardinal Guard, maintained and utilized a sizable pool of Sicaran-chassis battle tanks, mostly widely deploying the Sicaran Venator model, and to considerable effect on several occasions. Most notable and reputable of the 35th’s engagements was the Purge of Balgad, where the Company claimed victories against the the super-heavy cybernetic constructs fielded by the Ushlar on continental landmass 48-23-Sigma, fighting back the massive bio-mechanical titans in an effort to break through to Captains Arishem and Pelnar’s 31st and 32nd Grand Companies, holding out against overwhelming odds at Site 92-Sigma. Though Captain Clopheas was unable to reach Arishem and Pelnar before Ushlar forces swarmed and overrun the site, the 35th was able to tally nearly 45 titan-scale constructs, before a later rendezvous with Aphragato of Legio Ferrax, wherein the Grand Company claimed 13 more kills, working in synchronicity with the Warbringer pattern Titan.

Sergeant Nestilo Prelaton, 13th Grand Company
Cardinal Guard
 
After experiencing an outbreak of psychic ability during the purge of the xenos Craftworld Telennar, Sergeant Nestilo Prelaton, of the 2nd Tactical Squad, 74th Grand Company, was seconded in secret to the Cardinal Guard’s Librarius, where the XIXth Legion’s silent order of psykers probed and tested the young marine’s ripening mind, subjecting the once-latent psyker to cerebral trials uncounted. Proving strong of mind, Nestilo endured, and was inducted into the clandestine order of the Legion.
 
Little did Nestilo, nor many beyond the 13th Grand Company, know that the formation was neither a true Grand Company of the Cardinal Guard nor a traditional fighting force. The 13th Grand Company, 3rd Cohort, 2nd Ordinal, was a specter - a falsehood constructed to house and train the psychically gifted within the Cardinal Guard. Like many of his brothers within the 13th Grand Company, Nestilo’s warp powers manifested in the ancient pattern of the Abjurers, allowing him and others to ward and shield, and, with great effort and strain, smite foes in blazes of white light. His powers trained and honed by his mentors with the 13th, Nestilo would eventually take to the Great Crusade as a covert battle-psyker, deployed with his brothers in the 13th as a last resort against foes wielding warp-based magicks against the XIXth Legion.

The Mercurial Band
Cardinal Guard
 
More of a signifier of veteran status than a mark of honor, the Mercurial Band served as a reminder to the early XIXth Legion of the lethality of the Great Crusade. Borne by those who survived the Compliance of Mercury and the Near-Solar Platforms, on battlefields like Flare Station Kilo, the Apollite Plateau, and the Hermean Archipelago - all dens of uniquely lethal monstrosities. The nascent XIXth, blooded in the light of Sol, created the Mercurial Band as symbol of remembrance for the fallen and mark of bravery for the survivors. Paired with the Mark of Tharsis, the Mercurial Band shaped the early XIXth Legion's iconography, becoming recognizable and familiar to allied forces in appearance and meaning.
 
Typically worn around the upper right arm, directly under the terminating line of the shoulder pad and above the elbow, the Mercurial Band encircled a warrior's shooting arm. The black and white checkered stripes of the Band, representing the blinding light and freezing shadow of Sol, respectively enclosed and wrapped in a simple and infinite loop. Due to the singular and temporarily aspect of the Compliance, the Mercurial Band would become uncommon among the Cardinal Guard in the wake of the discovery of Haedran and Cathea, seen only among the oldest veterans of the Legion, with few exceptions - those being the astonishingly rare Mercurial recruits to the XIXth, who numbered less than one hundred at their very highest, taken from Mercury in decennial tithes of only a few dozen.

Fire Raptor Gunship - Crocea Mors
Cardinal Guard
 
A Legion legend by the end of the Great Crusade, the Fire Raptor Gunship dubbed Crocea Mors boasted nearly 120 years of honorable service to the Imperium in the service of the XIXth Legiones Astartes, Cardinal Guard. Originally manufactured and assembled on Mars and seconded to the XIXth Legion as part of a customary reinforcement package curated by the Mechanicum Prelatia for the Cardinal Guard, Crocea Mors would first see combat in the void, delivering much-needed close air support to Legion assets in their assault on the Craftworld Telennar, claiming two xenos battle tanks as kills, along with numerous Eldar warriors. During this time, the all-Cathean crew of the gunship would go on to adorn the nose portion of the craft with artwork reminiscent of their homeworld's predators, adding a fanged grin to the Fire Raptor's already fearsome visage.
 
Crocea Mors would go on to serve in many of the most lethal and legendary of the Cardinal Guard's wars, fighting at Bell's World, the Astelor Ridge, and Heart of Darkness, marking aerial combat kills and successful ground strikes in high number. Of the crew of Crocea Mors, Sergeant Calix Sarpedon would achieve a famed status among the Cardinal Guard for his record as the Fire Raptor's gunner, skilled in his employment of the gunship's dual Reaper Autocannons in countless engagements of ground targets.
