In the year 332.M39 the White Panthers responded to a transmission made by an Inquisitor Bastalek Grim, who had uncovered plans of the government of Kethra to secede from the Imperium. A White Panthers strike force proceeded to completely destroy Kethra's military capabilities, including its Planetary Defence Forces, stormed the Governor's palace, and executed the traitorous leaders. Inquisitor Grim saw this as needlessly rendering an essentially Imperial world defenseless.[Needs Citation]

When the planet Thagra IV was invaded by the Alpha Legion, the White Panthers were sent to liberate the planet. The planet had a heavy mutant population as the slave workforce within the planet's manufactoria. During the rebellion many of the mutants joined the Alpha Legion's attacks, while some remained loyal and resisted the invasion through guerrilla warfare. The White Panthers eventually drove the Alpha Legionnaires off, afterwards rounding up most of the mutants, including those who had fought against the invading Alpha Legion, considering them all to be traitors. Ready to execute the entirety, the intervention of Inquisitor Gregor Eisenhorn forced the Panthers to spare the loyalist mutants.[Needs Citation]

In the year 998.M41, the White Panthers' Chapter Master Jorus Shadowmaw was killed in action whilst putting down a rebellion in the Dynathi cluster.[1]


The White Panthers are organized according to the Codex Astartes.[2] Their symbol is a white panther's head over black.[3]
