|Series||Dawn of War|
After the events of Dawn of War II, subsector Aurelia is recovering from the Tyranid invasion that almost wiped out the Blood Ravens recruiting planets. However, something sinister is afoot. The planet Aurelia, once thought lost to the Warp, has reappeared. Sending a team to investigate this occurrence, the Blood Ravens quickly discover that the taint of Chaos, in the form of the Black Legion, has infested this planet during the millennia spent in the Warp. They are led by Eliphas the Inheritor and Araghast the Pillager. Surprisingly, after the first few skirmishes against the Black Legion, Chapter Master Azariah Kyras orders an immediate withdrawal from the system. After refusing to leave, Captain Gabriel Angelos is pronounced a heretic. It is later found out that it is in fact the Chapter Master and someone aboard the Retribution that are the heretics.
The traitor in the game depends on who had the most corruption. If all your squads are pure, then the traitor will be Martellus the Techmarine.
It is not possible for either The Commander or Davian Thule to be the traitor.
The game "Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II - Chaos Rising" utilizes a unique system based on corruption. For example, allowing Imperial Guardsmen or Space Marines to perish will make your squads more corrupted. If you capture a foundry or shrine for example, you will gain redemption for your squads. Also, some characters will gain corruption if you don't deploy them on certain missions.
