    The Fall Of Seraph - Histories of the IXth Legion.

    Introductions to the End

    Out- out are the lights- out all!
    And, over each quivering form,
    The curtain, a funeral pall,
    Comes down with the rush of a storm,
    While the angels, all pallid and wan,
    Uprising, unveiling, affirm
    That the play is the tragedy, "Man,"
    And its hero the Conqueror Worm.”

    Fragment from the lost Pre-Unification works of Edal Len’Po, circa late M1.

    “Betrayal. Resentment. Arrogance. These were the wounds that killed the Imperial Truth. Mankind at its very worst, the self-devouring worm, rancid in its own desire to consume at the expense of everything else. Is it any wonder we slipped from grace so easily? This is our legacy.”

    From Lessons We Should Learn, outlawed text published in the years following the Siege.
    Queller Hirraupt of the Remembrancer order

    “It is hard to put into words the sorrow and tragedy of those days. Pain, both of the body and the soul, was our constant companion. We were numbed, insensate, drowning in loss and madness. But still we fought. We could do little else but spite them with our every breath, remind them that every step they took was won with their own blood and pain. And amongst all the pain of those days, the great horrors of the Angel’s End and the wounding of Him, we forget the other losses, the other tragedies. Seraph fell. They all fell. Unwitnessed. Save by me. And the knowing of this breaks my heart.”

    From Blood on the Steel: the lives of Seraph
    Bastian Ortega, once named Icarium, of the IXth Legion Astartes.
