Command Prefectus

From Warhammer 40k - Lexicanum
Jump to: navigation, search

The Command Prefectus was an Imperial Army unit established by the Huscarls of the Imperial Fists in the later days of the Horus Heresy.[1]

Overseeing morale and discipline amongst the Army and civilians, the Command Prefectus' secret duty perhaps unknown even to them was to stem the temptations of Chaos amongst Imperial ranks. Wearing black coats and red emblems, they had a heavy presence inside the Imperial Palace during the Siege of Terra.[1a]

Presumably, it was transformed into the Officio Prefectus or Commissariat after the Heresy.



Rogue Trader-era Commissar[2]

The black coats and red emblems of the Command Prefectus resemble the uniforms of Imperial Commissars in the earliest days of Warhammer 40,000: Rogue Trader.
