Background

Like their fellow brother Successor Chapters in the Crimson Consuls, Marines Mordant and Vindicators, the Nova Legion were charged with guarding the rimward frontiers of the Maelstrom Warpstorm[1a]. However in late M41, all four were destroyed in sudden systematic attacks on their Homeworlds, by the forces of the Alpha Legion Arch-Lord Quetzel Carthach.[1b]

The Chapter's only known survivor is the Devastator Marine Autolicon Phex, who was in a penitoria-cell when Carthach's forces attacked his Homeworld Scintil-Novax and could do nothing to come to its aid. When the Devastator was later found by the Arch-Lord's forces he was given to Carthach, who then brutally tortured Phex and even cut out his tongue.[1b]
