The Palatine Blades was a specialist warrior-brotherhood of the Emperor's Children Legion during the Great Crusade and Horus Heresy. The Palatine Blades existed outside the rigid formations of the Emperor's Children's military order, consisting of a dueling society to whose ranks consisted of those who had gained Fulgrim's favor. At the discretion of the lords of the Legion, members of the Palatine Blades without their own command fought together in battle, serving as a shining example of perfection in war to their Battle-Brothers.
