The Tears of the Emperor are rare items used by members of the Adeptus Ministorum, particularly the Sisters of Battle. Collected within ornate crystal bottles are the blood-like tears said to weep from statues and other icons of the Emperor. It is said that the tears are shed when a Space Marine dies in battle.[2] Thrown like a grenade, they are potent weapons against the denizens of the Warp.[1] It is also said that they can cure one of any ailment.[2]

Gathering and distribution of the Tears of the Emperor is overseen by a Cardinal known as the Emperor's Chaplain. It is an enormously powerful position within the Ecclesiarchy.[2]
