Here I will be posting the backgrounds and customs of the Angelus Venatores Order of the Adeptus Sororitas. With this first post I will give a very general idea of what they are and how they were formed but if anyone wants to know more about a specific area just shoot me a pm and I will happily expand on any subject as best I can. Don't be afraid to want more on even little things. I am a sucker for world building.

Originally a part of the Order of the Ebon Chalice they became a splinter group when a number of Sororitas went rogue. Without orders a band of them went out to hunt them down. This hunt brought them to a feudal world known as Mazgoth under assault by primitive Orks. Intervening they came across a ruined village where a young woman fought ferociously with nothing but a butcher’s knife alone. Around her laid numerous dead both man and xenos before she was struck down herself. With flamers and hatred they purged the orks but to their amazement the young woman rose again in a glorious light.

Seeing the Emperors work the sisters took the young woman with them and began to teach her their ways as they traveled, hunting down the traitors that set them upon their path to begin with. The woman revealed herself as Asta and though she was a smith’s assistant on a backwater world the Emperor chose her for far more. Asta would go on to produce miracles and feats of near impossibility.

First among her many miracles was her return to life. Her second miracle was her wings of light, not a mutation but a sign, for these wings it is customary for every sister to have wings tattooed onto their backs. Upon a frozen world Asta would reveal her third great feat when she wrestled and tamed barehanded the great white wolf Silver Sheen. Said to be the size of a Lemun Russ Tank she made it her companion. No wolves of such size have been seen since (Or possibly ever due to embellishment) but for this feat sisters of the order have wolf companions of their own.

When the time came that the last of the heretics were accounted for they returned but not to fanfare. Disallowed their chance to justify themselves they were set upon as traitors and slain except for Asta. The retribution delivered by the woman revealed the Emperor’s hand in their actions and she was soon pardoned. Asta would not be satisfied with a mere pardon, she wanted to carve out the space belonging to the xenos and wipe them out.

As reparations the now declared living saint was given a detachment of Sisters of Battle now named the Angelus Venatores after the original sisters that set out and found Asta. Several regiments were raised and soon she was given forces for her crusade. Pushing into wildspace the woman was said to be seen fighting alone and yet with the many that died for her still fighting alongside her so that their forces were never diminished.

Upon every world they reclaimed and took for the Emperor she would keep a rare local material. Nearing the end of her crusade she used all the materials to create her blade Eredil. With over 100 materials and said to carry a feather of light it too was said to be one of her miracles. Upon the final world as the last of the xenos fell the saint was struck down by the Dark Eldar, a group not once fought during the campaign. This was her final miracle, leaving behind only her blade it is said she did not die but rather broke apart into light. Much like Saint Celestine there are claims to have seen her over battlefields to this day but not fighting, rather claiming the best of the fallen to join her retinue.

The space she carved out would later be renamed as the Eredil Sector. The Order of the Angelus Venatores built their base upon the final world where she fell. As the world grew into a mighty hive so too did their fortress grow. It is said her sacred blade is still kept in the depth of their armory along with many other sacred items. The world of her origin became the homeworld of the Adeptus Astartes chapter The Blood Brothers whom they keep good relations.

Though a militant order in action and origin they are officially the moderators of the sister orders. Tasked with hunting down traitors and witches that may rise among them. They are frequently seen hunting other traitorous targets as well.
