Overview

Of all the Knightly Houses in the Imperium, House Raven is the largest by far. Indeed, Raven’s Knights number in the hundreds, with dozens of households ready to answer the summons of the Adeptus Mechanicus should they be called to war. Quite why there are so many Knight suits available to House Raven is something of a mystery. However, ancient records dating back to when their world, Kolossi, was first settled refer to a piece of STC archeotech that long ago fell into disrepair and was lost. Whether this STC system and Kolossi’s natural resources served as the perfect combination for producing Knight suits, or if the first human settlers merely prioritised the creation of Knight suits above all else, remains an enigma.[1a]

House Raven first allied itself with the nearby Forge World of Metalica during the Great Crusade. Lord Gregor, Raven’s ruler at that time, struck a deal with the Techpriests of Metalica to ensure that his house would have sufficient Sacristans to service his full host of Knights.[1a]

One of Raven's first rulers, Lord Grunwald, introduced a knightly elite within the House known as the Companions. This inner circle comprimses many of the most powerful and experienced knights of the house. The majority of them are Knight Errant and Knight Paladin pattern suits. Another sub-order within the House known as the Iron Brotherhood also exists, comprising of a skilled band of Sacristans from Metalica.[1b]

In 246.M41, the Knights of House Raven crushed Waaagh! Smogbelcha on the fireplains of Voth.[4a]

During the Diamor Campaign in 999.M41 Knights of the House Raven fought against the Crimson Slaughter and Legio Metalica on the planet Amethal.[6]
