"Not many can say they've faced down a Genestealer. Most that have get killed by a different one seconds later. But I can. I've done it more than once. There's something worse about these ones though, the ones that look part-human. They hate you almost as much as you hate them. It's not just animal instinct. You can see it in their eyes, even as they’re bleeding out with your bayonet in their throat, their claws still reaching out to slash you up. I pray to the Emperor that I get to kill more. Only extinction's good enough for them."
- – Veteran Guardsman Garadux, Indigan Praefects 47th "Lictor Killers," Defence of the Volushun Shipyard
Created when the Planetary Governor of Indiga, Constantine Principa Argoy, spent the planets wealth on breeding every dangerous creature from the surrounding Segmentum.
Then a earthquake cracked open the zoo and the highly dangerous megafauna escaped into the wild to breed, hybridise and feed on the local population, the PDF adapted to become very good at what they do... to hunt down and kill any and all of the dangerous megafauna with an extreme and immense abhorrence.
And thus the Indigan Praefects was created.
"Indiga" could be a reference to "India", known for its megadiverse flora and fauna, including dangerous predators such as Tigers, Leopards and Crocodiles.
