No they are not. At least in my head they are not...
I, the charismatic inquisitor. Three battle sisters mesmerized by my devotion to the Emperor...Alone we found ourselves on a desolate planet with no means of escape...Oh did not the Emperor charge us with the sacred task of populating the universe and claim it for the Imperium of man? The battle sisters agrees my sentiment with a knowing look in their eyes. No need for such cumbersome armour, I said to them, there are no threats here... They agrees and takes of their suits of armour....their muscular arms tuned and perfect...

I would believe they are chaste because they are the futuristic equivilent of nuns and because they were originally called the brides of the Emperor and I doubt they Emperor would allow anyone to fool around with his wife.

Could explain why they are so angry though?

Because they are fighting the foes of the Emperor who they love like a father but more. That's why they are angry.

Well they did serve in a some what un pg 13 way during vandires reign nudge nudge;). Having said that I could see them distancing themselves from that time by giving up pleasures of the flesh. IMO certainly battle sisters would be either made sterile to prevent pregnancy or take vows of chastity, but other orders? surely its in the imperiums interest for citizens to have as many off spring as possible ( plentyfull troops/scribes/workers) so why not have its sisters preach this message.

Well if they let the other Ordos have children the Ordo Militant would say hey that's not fair and all that.

They had the choice, power armor and boltguns or the animal with two backs. Silly silly girls. They got conned with all the ceramite accessorising they were told they could do.

Most likely they take vows of chastity but i guess it could depend on the traditions of their Order. With holy zeal in their hearts and their destiny set to a higher purpose i guess simple sexual pleasure does not really seem that important. The Emperor is best served without distractions :)

They chose big guns, armour and a life of penance and violence over men....i know a few girls who would say that wasnt such a bad deal.... ;)

Not many men could impress a Battle Sister, and they see Marines as abhuman..

In "Daemonifuge", one of the sisters is found to carrying a token of affection from a member of the Navis Nobilite. Aside from the fact that she was also seen to be secretly bearing the mark of Slaanesh, the association appears to have been illicit.

The_Patriot
25-08-2007, 12:47
Yes, they're chaste and Slaanesh loves to corrupt Sisters using the flesh. The only thing they think about is serving the Emperor as His voice and His will. To get a good idea on their mindset I suggest you read Faith and Fire since it's all about the Sisters.

I think it depends. I mean while the Imperium might be a sort of take on the medieval Europe and Christianity, it still might be different. I mean the Imperium has no problem with half naked people (repentias, etc.) and pointing out the feminin features of the Sororitas on their armor (I don't remember seeing real life kevlar vests with cup sizes.

Chastity is something that is quite common in many religions, but I don't think it's something overly pious even in the Imperium. There are stories of deviant sexual behaviour even among the loyal Imperial ranks. Like the story about the Inquisitor(?) who had to "cleanse" the assassin who took the form of an Eldar (the ones who can morph). Cleansing of course meaning tapping that ass.

So I myself believe that while the front might be about keeping up chastity and all that purity crap, deep down you and me baby are nothing but mammals so lets do it like they do it on the animal cannel. But hell, that's my answer to everything. Even when the creatures aren't mammals.

No, it's the boobs.

Screw men (no pun intended, honest), all they need are some props.

That was during Vandire's tenure and Thor reformed them where they dropped that.

I'm not interested (just) because I'm a nolifer, but because I'm seriously interested. Knowledge like that have some value on understanding the world. Many don't want/need to know it, but I'm always interested on more off the table information on the world. Gives some aid on making fluff and stuff. Having this star trek "we don't even have toilets" clean image is more than deceiving.

I like realism, the down and dirty stuff (no, not like that ya pervs). I do like to know how marines poop inside their suits, I am interested on personal relations of the Tau, surely Slaanesh is more than just whips and chains, etc. I am interested on things like that, they give better understanding of things even if they have no effect on the game itself, but if GW has taken the time on making up all that stuff, why can't we know more about them?

"Lets make this aliens race with different social classes, one of them being the warriors. Lets make all nifty soldier stuff on the warriors."
"What about the 4 other classes?"
"Who cares, just make something up and slap them on there in the background. No one cares anyways, they don't have models."

Don't think too high of me. I've managed to get children to cry with my amazing nakedness. Besides, if you'd ever read any of the stuff I use all this knowledge I gather, it's far from noble.

Hell, I have a Sororita in a Slaanesh army as the sorserer. But don't get too worked up by the idea, she ain't screwing around. She can't she's damaged goods. On top of being pretty insane.

to go back to one of the earlier background points in this thread about whether they would be allowed to have families - I don't think it would be something that would concern them, mainly because the majority of the sisters are orphans or are surrendered/sent to the orders at a very young age, thus all they have ever known of family is that of their sisters around them, and their worship of the emperor.

When that is all you've known, what interest is there in raising a child of your own? You (likely) don't have any fond warm memories of what it's like being a child with a mum and dad, nor were you around other families to experience it from the outside, so I doubt they'd even have the slightest interest in such matters.

Those kind of feelings/thoughts have been replaced with faith in the emperor and righteous disgust with those that cannot live up to their ideals. Fanatics of that ilk see no need for families or children as it would dilute their purity.

Wait, so you just want this thread to speculate about the lives of the Sorritas. You should just make a different thread with a titles that won't attract perverts.

Show me a thread that hasn't gone south at any point and I shall crown you a king of the internets.
Disclaimer: Results of crowning may vary. May not contain any actual crowning or internets.

And did I realy say I wanted serious speculation? I guess I did then. Anyways, I'm not trying to force people into anything. If this thread craps out (and I don't get kickbanned) I or someone else can always return to the subject on a later date.

I just like to think seriously about things no matter how silly. When it comes to GW fluff, any theory goes. What do we know? 99% of the fluff is just 'Imperial speculation'. Nothing is certain. No wonder we get all the "Sigmar is a primarch", "Snotlings are Old Ones", "Admech worships the Void Dragon" and "Eldar Avatar is living metal" theories popping out from under out tin foil hats.

Lets let all the flowers bloom, even the ugly ones, because when we start weeding things, sooner or later you might find yourself in the receiving end.

Well I think this thread was south to begin with but the fluff part is true. I mean tommorow GW could say anything and it would go down as fact in the 40th millenium. They could the Tau are what happens when the Eldar and Orks interbreed and what not. I still say we should just take a flamer to this garden though.

The Orders militant I think would be chaste as can be. If only for disipline's sake. The non-militants though, maybe not so much.

A hospitaller taking a liking to a guard patient for example. Or a diolougous being saved from a cultist by an archive guard with a quick trigger finger.

You would also get a sense of close friendship with some of the more pious marines and the less so militants, but only individual cases, under extrodanary
circumstances, and not much more than that(a Black templar neophyte and a battle sister lost in the underworks of an armageddon hive manage to fend off a few mobs of orks. Though initialy mistrustful they trust eachother fully after saving eachothers lives a few times. When retrived, the sister recomends the neophyte for promotion, and the neophyte gives her one of his astartes purity seals*).

*purity seals, in my mind are diferent depending on who wrote them

Just because they're fit doesn't make them bodybuilders. Take a tour of duty in the army with women and you tell me how many butch bodybuilders you find. I didn't see any.

And apart from repentias I haven't seen any weird haircuts on Sisters. So they might not have long hair down to their hips, but they're far from military buzzcuts. And I do like women with shorter hair. And what's wrong with scars? Everyone has them. I wouldn't mind a woman with scars.

The problem is that you're too picky, my friend.


Besides their nuns. In space. Period. .
Does that read somewhere officially? Must have missed that bit on GW's site.
That's like saying the Eldar are space elves. Period. So the Sororitas are a military order of women who fight in the name of the Emperor. Apart from religious connections the Sororitas are far more like the Hitler Jugent (there, finally got the nazi card out, thank you Godwyn's Law) than some nuns. Take some kids, reprogram them to worship the image of the Emperor and march them down the line.

MrBigmr has the right idea, this can be a good thread.

Some of us really want to discuss such backround, and use it for story ideas.
If you don't like it don't post. Dead simple.


As I mentioned before, I can't see the militan orders as anything but, due to disipile issues and combat duty. The non militants could well not be as much nuns as the bolter weilders.

As I mentioned, a hospitaller growing attached to one of her patients. They drag a guardsman in, and he's on death's doorstep from a bioacid wound.
But the hospitaller manages to save him anyway. Meanwhile, as the battle lines shift forward, a tyranid lictor gets into the medicae facility and attacks.
It goes to gut the hospitaller, but the guardsman stops it by shooting it down with his melta, risking his own life to do so.

Or a diolougus being accosted in her archives, only to be rescued by a guard, and with the enemy still roaming the area, have to go with him to friendly lines. Through territory crawling with foes. Even a guardsman would be a
brute of incredible power to an archivist who's never even heard weaponfire before.

Well I was trying to salvage the thread but, the thing is these topics are almost impossible to be done seriously because there will also be the immature person saying stupid things. And honestly while it is never directly said by GW it seems like the Sisters of Battle practice chastity or at least thats what I picked up from the fluff.

honestly, I don't think there is too much official fluff from GW or Black Library to justify either stance on this issue, and I'm guessing that the true answer could be variable depending on rank, location, ecclisiarchal trends, trends within individual orders, time, strategic and local military situations, inquisitorial issues/events/trends, etc...

basically, we dont know, I think GW wants to keep it that way.

But where does such a position come from given the lack of material present for such a conclusion from either perspective from any official source? GW simply has never touched on the subject and likely never will, and as such there really isnt any basis for forming an opinion one way or another unless you just write it into the fluff of your own WH army.

In Faith and Fire, the daily lives of the Sororitas is spent in prayer, training, and patrols or their normal duties in the other Orders. Not a hint of any attraction with members of the opposite/same sex in the entire book.

In Daemonifuge, it was a shock to the Sisters to find the token and the mark of Slaneesh on the dead Sister. Also the Daemonifuge didn't express any attraction to Silas or the other Inquisitor, even after they had been together for a long time. It supports the chaste theory quite well. In the CCG the fallen Sister was tempted by the flesh and fell into the service of Slaneesh.

So should that be taken as support to the chaste theory or is there a massive cover-up being done by GW to hide the wild side of the battle sisters.

I didn't say that. I fall in with the notion that some do, some don't, depending upon circumstances.

*shrugs*

But then I do play EC ....

ok well that really didn't do it for me could you explain what your trying to say because I am having trouble understanding you still:(. I'm sorry about this it's just that I'm a little sleep deprived from staying up all night on Warseer.

So should that be taken as support to the chaste theory or is there a massive cover-up being done by GW to hide the wild side of the battle sisters.

Yup and when they're not chaste they usually end up in the service of Slaneesh. :eek: Go figure right?

I think you want me to take sides on this one; I'm not going to. I don't see it as an area of the background that I have any strong opinions on.

I do find the pervos posts amusing though .... :o

Highly unlikely since there's been only one priory falling to Chaos and they were all killed by Chaos then there's the one Sister that's in the CCG and she's still alive. I don't see this as much proof that it happens regularly.

MrBigmr has the right idea, this can be a good thread.
We can rebuild it, we have the technology. We can make it better, longer, more informative. And all it costs is 6 000 000 dollars (real ones, not canadian or australian), payable to me.


Well I was trying to salvage the thread but, the thing is these topics are almost impossible to be done seriously because there will also be the immature person saying stupid things.
"Sex is a joke in Heaven?"
"Seems like it's a joke down here too."
-Dogma


And honestly while it is never directly said by GW it seems like the Sisters of Battle practice chastity or at least thats what I picked up from the fluff.
Hell, GW fluff makes Slaanesh look like the Virgin Mary.


Well I think GW would side on the chaste side of the arguement because they don't want fanfics about the Battle Sister's extracurricular activities.
Yeah, because suddenly the Sisters are the only chicks in the universe and everyone wants to jump their bones. I don't care about the Sisters, my Slaanesh army gets busy very well with all the other women GW has overlooked.


I hope your joking because I doubt most people choose to play witchhunters because they have female models if so all the other WH players need to get a life ... seriously
Wooing after fictional women is like wooing after supermodels and such. Ya ain't getting either, but ya can always woo. And I'm currently making a Slaanesh Daemonic Legion for WHFB with no male models in sight. Boobs-ahoy.


In Faith and Fire, the daily lives of the Sororitas is spent in prayer, training, and patrols or their normal duties in the other Orders. Not a hint of any attraction with members of the opposite/same sex in the entire book.
In Daemon World no Slaanesh worshiper ever expressed any sexual attraction to anything. Doesn't prove much.


Also the Daemonifuge didn't express any attraction to Silas or the other Inquisitor, even after they had been together for a long time. It supports the chaste theory quite well.
So if I hang around with for a long time women and don't want to jump their bones, I'm chaste? Why can't they just be brothers (and sisters) in arms? Hollywood rules on two people of the opposite sex spending enough time together doesn't always apply in real world.


In the CCG the fallen Sister was tempted by the flesh and fell into the service of Slaneesh.
Here lies the seed of truth. Apart from all what I say, I do think the Sister are chaste to some extent, but that's not something infallible. You said it yourself, the Sister got tempted and fell, even with all the chastity crap. Same thing in Fire Warrior where a member of one caste was so attracted to the member of another caste that in his mind it would have been worth breaking the rules of intercaste relationships.

Just because the rules say "thou shallth not get busy" doesn't make it so. Like I said, I do believe the Sisters to be chaste, but to what extent? How well is it enforced? Is the armor welded shut to make a full body chastity belt? Do their doctors do routine inspections on them to see if there has been any sexual intercourse? What is the penalty of such behaviour? Do they get spanked or demoted to a Repentia/Penitent?

In my opinion, it's strictly enforced. They would become Repentias and voluntarily ask for it. Those don't ask are used on the Penitent Engines in the vain hope that when they die they are redeemed.

Well aren't most Repentias Sisters that think that enjoyment is heresy and all that so they ask to be put into the Repentia squads for enjoying themselves.

In Faith and Fire one of the main characters fails in her duty and requests it. The others that are in there violated some oath they took and are in the Repentias.

Would you think it's a mixture of both the ones who fail at their duties and the ones who see flaws in their ways or do you think there's more of one than the other?

But then again that falls under if she thinks it's wrong (it's so wrong but it feels so good) and/or if she gets caught. And whether she can wiggle her way out of it. Like I said before, there's a bit where an Inquisitor 'purifies' an assasin morphed into an Eldar. So maybe the 'bad sister' can get purified herself as well. It's not as if stuff like that is unheard of in the real world either.

I follow the line that the Battle Sisters are a primarily chaste organisation. What I'm not sure about, however, is what happens to a sister discovered to be carrying a child after any kind of rebellious incident? I am hard-pressed to decide what happens. The consequences are grave for the sister in question, but my personal interpretation would be the newborn would be sent to the Schola Progenium to be raised. After all, simply terminating the sister in one way or another would be wasteful, and we all know how callous and uncaring the Imperium can be, but perhaps in these situations the sister's superiors might not sent her straight out to "seek redemption". Mind you, considering how harshly treated the sororitas are for minor transgressions, I'd imagine it would be all but impossible to raise a baby up to the moment of birth with all the beatings and enforced fasting she would probably endure.

Hmm, this is a rather unpleasant train of thought, and I think it's a different approach than "lol, bewbs".

I think that the Sister would be simply executed or thrown into the Repentia (after an abortion perhaps?) No sympathy, no mercy nothing. The Sisters are like that to anyone who has 'weakness' in the service of the Emperor, amongst their own number it'd be far worse.

Might have something to do with the order as well, doesn't it? Even marines don't follow their sacred rules ("Index Astartes is more of a guideline than an actual rule."), so why can't the orders of Sororita have their own dealings with stuff?

I don't see much negative things (apart from the obvious) in having fit young women turned into baby factories to make more fit young women to march to the front.

Hell, I'm suprised the marines don't do it. Having good genes to make it into the Astartes and surviving for a long time would be far better if put into circulation. Have some breeding program to pass those genes back into the populus and make more good canditates for marines.

Doesn't mean the marines would have to have sex with women. There are many many nasty ways of extracting semen. Needles, electrisity, etc. The less pleasant the ordeal, the less guilty the marines has to feel afterwards.

Yes, you are right, it would be silly to think that GW would copy stuff from other people.
I wasn't expecting the Sororitas to breed a new Emperor, but to pass on the good genes. People have done it all around the world for eons, breeding the strongest and smartest together to improve their ranks. I have a hard time believing the Imperium isn't doing it. They've made genetic experiments already ranging from the marines to afriel strain and so forth.

Most warriors code try to control the sexuality of the ones following for the simple matter of fact that sexually unsatisfied people make better warriors... more agression, less hang over from last night... This is also the reason why most armies enforce a strict control on when or where their members can have a drink and... ehr... get access to the local female population

The catholic popes of the middle ages were a very good example. It is known that the most aggressive and militaristic popes were the ones that really DID lived a life in chastity...

And because they are nuns in space, and copy a lot of the imagery and ideology from the catholic church of the middle ages, I think its safe to assume they also have copied this.

Also, don't forget that they do a lot of masochistic rituals, maybe they venture their sexual desires over this.... or over the sadistic joys of battle ;)

Not regularly enough to deserve their own codex... but certainly regular enough for some pervos to convert SoBs into slanneshi devotees and get away with it.... but I'll stop now ;)
