The Ayatani are a special priesthood devoted to the veneration of Saint Sabbat.[1a] Although they are technically members of the Adeptus Ministorum, and thus duty-bound to promote worship of the Emperor, Sabbat is "closer" to their hearts, and thus more prominent in all their rituals and decisions.[2]

There are at least two distinct sects of the Ayatani[1c][2]:

  • Tempelum ayatani: Sedentary priests, who oversee Sabbat's shrines in the Sabbat Worlds.[1c]
  • Imhava ayatani: "Roving priests" who travel throughout the Worlds.[1c]

As a mark of their station, the Ayatani wear blue robes.[1a][1b]
