Jenetia Krole, also known as the Soulless Queen of the Imperium, was the Knight-Commander of the Silent Sisterhood and Chief Investigatus-Militant of the Divisio Astra Telepathica during the Great Crusade and Horus Heresy. She led the Silent Sisterhood during the Battle of Prospero and the War Within the Webway.[1c][3a]
Jenetia Krole was the commander of the Silent Sisterhood, charged by the Emperor of Mankind with overseeing the 'Great Tithe' of psykers as the Great Crusade advanced. At some point in the Crusade, she was attached to an expeditionary force engaged in the war for the Mournful Gate against Eldar slavers. When the commanders were assassinated, she assumed command by executing the remaining general staff and subordinate officers. Under her leadership, the militia won a victory that earned her the right to wear the Laurels Invictarus (laurels of victory) of a lauded general.
When the Emperor decreed that Magnus the Red was to be censured, Krole commanded the forces of the Silent Sisterhood that accompanied the Censure Host to Prospero. She personally divided her forces into protectorate detachments for the rest of the host to provide them with protection against psychic attack from the Thousand Sons. During the Battle of Prospero, she sought out and killed many of the Thousand Sons' greatest sorcerers in single combat, as well as confronting the daemon that had been manipulating Kasper Hawser.
Krole returned to Terra to lead the forces of the Silent Sisterhood in the War Within the Webway. She took joint command of Imperial forces in Calastar alongside with Tribunes Jasaric, Kadai Vilaccan, and Ra Endymion of the Legio Custodes. By the later stages of the war, her mouth was permanently concealed behind a mouthpiece surgically bonded to her jaw and cheekbones.[3a] She survived the retreat from Calastar to return to the Imperial Palace, losing three fingers on her left hand in the battle.[3b]
Appearance and Wargear
Jenetia Krole had red-dyed hair bound in a topknot that reached to the base of her spine. She wore silver Artificer Armour and a fur-edged enhanced Voidsheen Cloak. Her weapons were the two-handed sword Veracity, a gift once wielded by the Emperor of Mankind,[3a] and an Archaeotech Pistol.
