2nd Company (Scythes of the Emperor)
During the Second Tyrannic War, Chapter Master Mansirius Thorcyra led a detachment of the Scythes, including Captain Agaitas and the Second Company, in an expedition to the Saphir Cluster to combat the tyranids of Hive Fleet Kraken. The mission was unsuccessful; worse, it drew away a sizeable portion of the Chapter's strength, allowing the tyranids to invade and ravage Sotha, the Scythes' homeworld.[3a]
The survivors, including Thorcyra and Agaitas, eventually made their way to the Chapter's muster point in the Miral System.[3a] There, the Second Company contributed to the defence of a Chapter outpost on Miral Prime known as the Giant's Coffin against another tyranid attack. The Company was almost entirely wiped out in a sortie against the Hive Ship Heloth, which had crash landed on Miral.[3b]
