Crusader Host[edit]

Basically just notes: I've been looking into that most recent edit, I think I may have been wrong and it was as simple as "they were suspected of treachery", but the surrounding facts are a bit complicated. I haven't read Anthony Reynolds "The Purge" but lexicanum quotes thirty members of the crusader host ("traitors" and loyalists alike) and all were arrested on the orders of Rogal Dorn, with the exception of the Imperial Fists (cause daddy's favourites). The wikia then says that 18 of those were killed leaving 12, and seven of those escaped to become the outcast dead, leaving five in prison (Tubal Cayne of the Iron Warriors being one, Crius of the Iron Hands being another).

It gets partly explained in "Wolf Hunt" that the established order of events is all screwed up because the effects of Magnus' message to Terra were not felt until two years later and that hundreds of psykers and tech adepts were trying to diffuse all that energy, which is why Outcast Dead seemed to get things in the wrong order. Unfortunately, that still doesn't explain why ALL of the crusader host were arrested, since following the Flight of the Eisenstein only four legions were under suspicion and many of the crusader host legions were trusted enough to be deployed to Istvaan V sort the "traitors" out, yet the crusader host were already in prison prior to the dropsite massacre.

The Nine Who Are Named?[edit]

I was looking at this and on the bottom I noticed something. The "Nine Who Are Named" have to be the first Grand Masters- Ianius/Janus, Khyron, and Epimethius are all listed in that group. There is something odd there, though. If there were nine of these figures but only eight Grand Masters, what happened to the ninth one (whoever he ended up being- it's impossible to tell from here)?--Newerfag (talk) 06:08, 8 February 2019 (UTC)

I noticed that too, and already updated this page to attempt to take that into account, but presumably the ninth person takes on a different role other than Grand Master, so it shouldn't screw with established canon that much. They might not get sequestered on Titan, they might become the first of the Prognosticars, or they might not even be an Astartes at all. It's too early to tell without the book being released. --Dark Angel 2020 (talk) 06:58, 8 February 2019 (UTC)
I feel the same way, I think the ninth member will be an outsider, aka not an Astartes and as such they won't directly be a part of the contribute to the Grey Knights. -- Triacom (talk) 07:01, 8 February 2019 (UTC)
Loken was given the name Crius but refused to become a GK, deciding instead to stay on Terra with Garro as per The Buried Dagger. 04:11, 24 February 2019 (UTC)
