The Spirit of Eternity was a ship from the Dark Age of Technology which held an advanced form of Artificial Intelligence.[1]

Overview

Roughly 300 meters long and containing an STC data core, the Spirit of Eternity was the sister ship to the Blade of Infinity and was considered a small vessel by the standards of the Dark Age of Technology. In M24 it began a journey into the Warp and was beset by a Warp Storm. Flung throughout time, it witnessed the formation of the Galaxy and the eventual destruction of the universe by Chaos. The ship eventually reemerged into the Galaxy at some point after the Horus Heresy, where the captain decided to rendezvous with a nearby Human inhabitated planet. However much to their shock, the captain and crew were captured, tortured, and murdered by the superstitious Humans. The AI aboard the Spirit of Eternity witnessed this and became horrified and fled. Over time it developed a fierce hatred for Humanity and hoped to escape the accursed galaxy. Eventually the ship became entangled within the Space Hulk Death of Integrity.[1]

In 887.M39 Imperial forces consisting of Novamarines and Blood Drinkers under Magos Explorator Vardoman Plosk and Chapter Master Caedis cleared the Death of Integrity of Genestealer infestation. They discovered the Spirit of Eternity and the AI, now fuming with hatred of Humanity. After a battle the Imperials escaped and the Spirit of Eternity was able to escape into the Warp, where it was never heard from again.[1]

Archmagos Dominus Belisarius Cawl, however, is rumored to have later found the Spirit of Eternity and bested its A.I. in a game of wits.[2]
