House Info
Name: House Scythe
Affiliation: Imperium[1]
Knight World: Death's Welcome[1]

Like the Households of Drudge and Fervans, Scythe is composed of morbid nihilists who have been foretold of their Households' destruction in battle. So when the splinter fleet of Hive Fleet Hydra invaded their world, Scythe's Knights believed their destruction was at last at hand and gladly joined the Houses of Drudge and Fervans in battling the Tyranids. The Knights of Death's Welcome took such a heavy toll on the invading Tyranids, though, that Hive Fleet Hydra's Bio-ships retreated after their reserves of biomass become dangerously spent. While through their efforts Death's Welcome was saved, the World's Knight Houses were devastated and just eighteen Knights remain alive from a starting force of over four hundred.[1]
