The Cognitae was a Chaos cult which took the form of an academy, run by its founder, Lilean Chase. According to Inquisitor Gideon Ravenor, the Cognitae's aim was to develop, "by means psychic, eugenic and noetic," a generation of individuals who would work to further the aims of Chaos in the Scarus Sector.[1]

Every "graduate" of the Cognitae was both highly intelligent and extremely dangerous.[1] These included Zygmunt Molotch, Jader Trice, Gall Ballack,[Needs Citation], and Goran Gobleka.[3]

According to Criol Fowst, the Cognitae, or some version of it, had existed within the Imperium for millennia, as far back as before the Great Crusade. It also spawned several offshoots and imitators, some of which tried to recruit Fowst. He found some ideals in common with them, but ultimately rejected them in favor of his "true" calling, as a cultist in service to the Word Bearers[2].

The Cognitae is associated with the mysterious King in Yellow, though if he controls them or they control him is unclear.[4]
