The Riven are a warband of Secondborn within the Black Legion with a brutal reputation. Originally the Triarii of the World Eaters,[1a] they gradually became a host of Secondborn as mortally wounded warriors were bound with daemons by Iskandar Khayon and their ranks were joined by possessed volunteers, largely from the Sons of Horus, and prisoners from other Legions.[1c]

Charged with protecting the Vengeful Spirit, they fought off boarding actions by both the Black Templars[1c] and the Legion Host during the First Battle of Cadia.[1d]

In later years, many captives from loyalist Chapters were forcibly possessed and joined their ranks.[1c]
