Overview

Oil-like blood constantly oozes from the joints in their power armour. These marines are known to have a high threshold for pain.[1][2]

History

First appearing during the insurrection on the planet Magma Cordelian, the loyalist Guardsmen of the Iridian 334th Regiment had pushed their way into the rebellious Planetary Governor's palace after a sustained artillery bombardment. However, the regiment's unit of Primaris Psykers realized that the architecture of the palace was actually a gigantic summoning circle. Into the fray were summoned the Cleaved, who massacred the Iridian guardsmen and secured the planet for the traitors.[2]

In 891.M39, the Cleaved appeared out of a newly materialized Space Hulk. Battling the Dark Angels, the loyalist Astartes emerged victorious when their Assault Squads, emerging behind a trio of Dreadnoughts, got close enough to set Cyclonic charges to the space hulks engine room.[3]

Sometime after the formation of the Great Rift, The Cleaved fought raided the Iron Hands homeworld of Medusa alongside forces from the Death Guard and Purge.[4a] They have also taken part in the Charadon Campaign.[6]
