The Convocation of Nephilim occurred after the Age of Apostasy and following the death of Goge Vandire. During this time, the Imperium suffered from such a terrible conflict that it nearly tore itself apart. Thus, a new branch of the Inquisition was formed known as the Ordo Hereticus. At the height of the Thorian Reformation, the female Imperial Cult known as the Daughters of the Emperor had their relationship with the Ordo Hereticus codified in the Convocation, thus leading to the formation of the Adepta Sororitas. This female sisterhood became the Chamber Militant of the Ministorum where they purged the deviant, corrupt and heretical from the ranks of the Ecclesiarchy following the dismantlement of the Frateris Templar.[1]

According to legend, it is said that during the Convocation, secrets were told to Saint Dominica and the founders of the Ordo Hereticus at the very base of the Golden Throne itself. This defined the close relationship between the two as a path and mission was formed as a result of the event with only the highest-ranking members of the Adepta Sororitas and Ordo Hereticus privy to its details.[1]
