The Dogs of Terra may seem to have an unlikely ally in the brutal Orks. Beset as our worlds were by the xenos’ attacks when the Great Secession occured, your likelihood of being engaged in a three-way fight on any battlefield you’re deployed too is high. But fear not – orks are war-hungry creatures, and they care not from where their fights come. High Command will ensure that wherever possible, your efforts will drive the two forces against one another. Trust in the Dominate – our Interdependence gives us strength.
-Severan Soldier’s Guide to Battle, Chapter IX: On the Nature of our Fight for Freedom
Lucilla Acton, Ducal Legate Primaris
After a relatively safe drop, things quickly became complicated for the Aetherian Rex 1st Auxilliary Corps and their first mission. The section of mazelike honeycombed mining tunnels that they were assigned to examine have become home to strange orkish slave camps, a kilometer-long crashed imperial dropship, and Emperor knows what else. Initial reports from the newly-freed Excavatory Warriors have been… of mixed value.
Still, they push onwards towards the Corbin-Danziger line, ready to administer their deadly payload to whatever lies on the other side. All they have to do is make it there.
- Alex – Cornelius. Operator for the Severan Dominate. Content to spend his life navigating an armored coffin behind enemy lines; nonchalantly melting the Enemies of the Emperor while yelling at his latest comrade for perceived incompetence.
- James – Vorgen Nowak. A Heavy Gunner for the Severan Dominate. Always tries to be a reliable foundation for the team, either with his calm, collected style or his suite of heavy weaponry.
- Josh – Aloysius Vance. A quiet psyker from an aggri-world, saved from the Black Ships of the Empire by the timely revolt. He largely keeps to himself, fully aware that the rank and file are disturbed by his presence.
- Kevin – Otho Valerius. Untested squad leader for the Severan Dominate. Still has a lot to learn about the ways of the Imperial Guard, but is determined to lead from the front with dignity and honor.
- Max – Fortunus “Fort” Diggles. Ogryn soldier for the Severan Dominate. Large among even his inhuman kind, Fort is mountain of a man that more closely resembles the mountain. He is always happy to fight alongside his fellow soldiers and support them in their ambitions. The complexities of war often escape him, but he serves with his own blend of loyalty, commitment, and inhuman strength.
