– ‘Edrecka Da Grot-Minda, five seconds before the Severan assault began.
All allies have been called in. All available wargear and manpower put to its best use. The Aetherian Rex auxilliary squad rides into battle, flanked by their ship-mate’s gunships. They are the Dominate’s last and only hope to maintain presence on Hervara. Without the planet’s metals, Duke Severus’ dream of independence from the Imperium will be strangled to death by lack of raw materials before it even gets to draw breath.
Ordinatus Ullator must be destroyed, or taken for the Dominate. No other outcome is acceptable, no matter how unlikely.
- 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.
