Bell of Lost Souls

From Warhammer 40k - Lexicanum

The Bell of Lost Souls is sounded when a great hero of the Imperium dies or a Grey Knight falls in battle[4]. It is located on Terra at the peak of the Tower of Heroes. It is ancient, like most of the equipment on Terra, and as big as a building. It is also covered in runes and its sound is said to be like the scream of an anguished god that lasts for a long time and reaches the ears of millions of the inhabitants of Terra.[1]

When rung, servents that maintain the bell must be sealed in reinforced shelters in order to prevent ruptured eardrums, followed by death from lung bursting and embolism.[4]

The bell was rung one thousand times to honour each dead marine when the Fire Hawks Chapter was lost.[2][3]
