The Order of the Valorous Heart is one of the six major Orders Militant of the Adepta Sororitas.

Basic Info
Battle Sister
Name: Order of the Valorous Heart
Founder: Alexis XXII[2b]
Honoured Saint: Lucia[3a]
Convent: Convent Sanctorum (Ophelia VII)[1]
Founding: 37th Millenium[2b]
Colours: Black armour, black cloaks with white linings[2a]


The Order is based on Ophelia VII within the Convent Sanctorum[1], founded when the convent was split by Ecclesiarch Alexis XXII[2b]. Their original leader was Lucia, one of the Sisters who accompanied Alicia Dominica to the Golden Throne during the Age of Apostasy .[3a] Their colours are black armour, black cloaks with a white lining and white gloves. The only trace of red is on their Ecclesiarchal symbol. These colours are the original colors of the Convent Sanctorum, which the Order inherited after the Convent was split in two.[2a]

Sisters of the Order are driven by the belief that they still must atone for the Sisterhood's acts as an unwitting accomplice to Goge Vandire during the Reign of Blood. Like their patron saint, the Order is highly penitent, always striving for atonement for even the slightest perceived sin. A disproportionate number of Sisters in this Order exile themselves to the Sisters Repentia compared to the other Major Orders. Because they are constantly reminded of the Reign of Blood, Sisters of the Valorous Heart can be particularly suspicious of those who would call themselves prophets of the Emperor.[5]
