Background

The Praetors of Orpheus are stationed on the world of Beta Entebes II within a subterranean base, which serves as their Fortress Monastery, called the Labyrinthe of Orphia.[2a] They are known for their disciplined approach to the Codex Astartes and are compltely inflexible in their adherence to the tome. While the Codex is their guide in all things, they are prone to interpreting passages too literally.[4]

The technological lore of the Praetors of Orpheus is second only to that of the Adeptus Mechanicus. Many believe that the two are tied by more than shared service in the Emperor's name. The Praetors of Orpheus are highly active in the systems neighbouring Pavonis.[3]

Notable Engagements

Colours

The Praetors wear predominantly white armour with distinctive sky-blue shoulderpad trims, backpack, chest eagle and gun-casing. Company affiliation is denoted both by a Roman numeral on the left kneepad and also the colour of the pad itself.[1] The chapter badge is a blue shield with a yellow sunburst in the center, with the exception of the top left quarter which is white with a blue Ultramarine symbol.[1]
