The Ordo Astartes is a minor Ordo of the Inquisition. Founded in M32, they oversee the Chapters of the Adeptus Astartes. The strength of the Ordo is currently estimated at 50 Inquisitors.[1] During the Second Founding, they forcibly disbanded the Wolf Brothers, owing to that chapter's aberrant gene-seed. The Wolf Brothers were given a choice between honourable death in battle or Inquisitorial execution; however, many of their number escaped entirely, with the Ordo accusing Primarch Leman Russ of aiding their flight.[2]
