Scions of the Panther Order

Founding Chapter: Panthers
Founding: Unknown - thought to be formed in late M35 (circa 13th Founding) from remnants of several groups.

Chapter Master: Hyroniemus Rahman Khan The Seeker
Home World: New Genesis
Fortress-Monastery: Solace for the Lost (usually shortened to just Solace) or Wrath for the Fallen
Battle Cry: Remember the Thunder! 

Colors: Purple with Dark Grey Trim
     Purple was chosen to represent the blue of the Panthers, from which most of the original members came, mixed with the blood of their fallen comrades. Grey marks the grimness of war and at the same time the rock of faith in mankind's strength to overcome all challenges, even those from within...
Insignia: Snarling Panther on red background.

Specialties: Adaptation and Assimilation; Rescue Missions
     As they struggled from the brink of annihilation and abandonment the Scions bent the strictures of codex organization and assimilated the traits of other shattered groups they found into what has now become a chapter. Because of the desire to rebuild and grow the Order takes risks to rescue and relieve forces in helpless situations who are often abandoned or forgotten by the groups who dispatched them.

Organization: The Panther Order adds units or remnants of units that it finds into the organization of the chapter where they are most comfortable. For example a single battle brother rescued from a planet overrun by Orcs was given opportunity to return to his mother chapter, but elected to remain with the brave marines who had extracted him and replace a combat loss taken in a previous engagement. Because of this unorthodox arrangement the Scions of the Panther Order have a somewhat more flexible understanding of the Codex prescriptions for Company organization.

     Another divergence from the typical organization happens when larger groups are added to the chapter. These groups often maintain their internal structure and orphans from other chapters are added to fill out the depleted unit. This leads to many different fighting styles within the Order itself, and eventually a cross pollination which breeds greater creativity and martial prowess than is typically found even amongst the venerated warriors of the Adeptus Astartes. As such the Scions have two veteran companies, the first entirely comprised of Terminator armoured battle brothers of the utmost experience and skill and Venerable Dreadnoughts who preserve the longest memories of any in the chapter. The second is composed of specialized veterans. A healthy rivalry exists between the two companies with the Second Company often being referred to as "The Fighting Veterans" because they are parceled out to train others in their specialty as well as lead attacks and rescues directly relating to their area of expertise.

     An additional advantage the Panthers gain from adding survivors is a disproportionate number of highly skilled leaders with great tactical acumen. As such each of the Companies has not one but two officers, a captain and his lieutenant. This allows for greater flexibility and more independent thinking on the battlefield, it also serves as a safeguard so that even in the event of catastrophic losses similar to those of their parent chapters a clear chain of command is more likely to survive.
