- Saint Rhennia
The forgotten accident of Cerephon Maxima, Though perhaps its greatest product. Rhenia, an Ogryn mother forced to undergo the servitor process. The combination of grief with the nerve stapling drove her mad, a madness that led her to charge headlong into a demon-engine, and tore it apart by hand. Perhaps more impressive than her hormonal and electrical-induced bravery, was the fact that she emerged from the battle against the monstrous thing alive.
In the aftermath of the battle, all of the abhumans heard “the call of their mother.” Resisting the commands of their chips, and their commissars they came to the site of the destroyed Hellbrute, and began to dig her out. Her now paralyzed body was found in the crater under a small hill of rubble. Her mind still somehow transmitting to all of her “children” the abhumans.
Had the local vostroyan General had his way, the strange psychic figure would have been sent towards Terra for both study, and convenience. However this was thwarted by three figures, also at the scene. Tauros Zephrus, the Abhuman priest of the Vilka Fenrika and chaplain to the locals, Captain Louis Honneur-de-Prandium of The Ultramarines SUEU, and Magos Titellus Xardenos of Forge World Lucius all recognized that there was something more, almost saintly about the incident. While they could (and did) argue what her saintliness proved, and thus who should care for her, the fact that she was favored was not in dispute. So while their combined clout could prevent her from being shipped off to one of Fulgrim’s labs in the Segmentum Solar, they could not agree on much else.
Saint Rhenia, terror of demons, is now paraded between the three shrines built for her. Where the Abhumans, the Ultramari faithful, and the Mechanicus all pay tribute to her majesty.

- Great Leader Coldpalm
Great Founder of the Tau'Va Imperium
- Coldpalm was part of the Ancient Shas'i peoples, which under the Kroot meant he would be cannon fodder. Forced to kill his own people and tyrannids for overlords who were themselves overlords. That changed when he kidnapped by the Dark Eldar, and offered a deal. Remade, by their skilled Geneticists, Puretide united his people in revolt against the Kroot and Gue'Va oppressors, and established the Tau'va Imperium.
- Great Leader Puretide
- From the planet Dy'leth, Puretide was the first T'au leadership to come froum outside of T'au. And he could not have come at a more fortuitous time for the T'au Va. The T'au had fallen under control of The Water Caste, who had sharpened the T'au's militaristic spirit. Meanwhile the Tau had all but foregone their ambitions against the Imperium, instead joining with them against the Tyrannids. Great Puretide changed this, driving many of the Watercaste from The Sphere and took advantage of the Imperium's buckling under the Last Chaotic Crusade, further pushing Imperium Undivided to its eventual collapse, and beginning a sphere of expansion directly into Vulkan's territory. Perhaps his greatest accomplishment, was the Battle of The Damocles Gulf, where Puretide delivered a devastating defeat to Sanguinius, forever breaking the Imperium's delusions of grandeur and asserting the Tau as a major political force.
It is unknown how he died, some say it was from the strain of his fantastic campaign against the The Imperium of Man, that ultimately claimed him. Though some suspect foul play by his generals.
