THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: His word is our strength
As per your orders, I have compiled statistics and intel pretaining to the Traitor Legions and renegades that assisted the sorcerer Ygethmor in his heinous actions on Medusa V before it's recent destruction. Many thanks to the God-Emperor for sparing that world a fate worse than death.
Of the Legions that were active on the planet, one seems to stand out more than others and begs further investigation. That Legion being the wretched sons of the Night Haunter, the Night Lords.
Vox data, witness testimony and several other sources confirm a most disturbing fact; that there was a high number of Night Lord warbands present on the planet during its final days, and even a handful of still-intact Grand Companies. My associates and myself have been completely shocked and baffled by their seemingly organized involvement, as you've taught me that the number of Night Lords present in the galaxy that actually worship the Ruinous Powers are surprisingly rare. Whatever their purpose on the planet, I believe that it must be investigated throughly.
These were not mere sadists, my old friend. Records show that the Night Lords 13th Grand Company, led by Caerolion the self-professed "Dark Saint", was involved with the breaching of Vigilus Penitentiary in Battlezone Euryales. Gius Crucis, former hero of the Great Crusade and Commander of the 8th Grand Company, was seen first hand leading his men in the razing of Sybilla Tertius in Battlezone Edethor. Rumors continue to persist that former Ephialtes, former High Chaplain of the Legion before the Great Betrayal is alive and well.
My Lord, what disturbs me the most about this situation is the level of organization present. One I firmly believe did NOT stem from the Black Legion Sorcerer. Each Grand Company, each warband all worked in a highly structured fashion. Furthermore, I believe they did not work towards Ygethmor's goal, but one of their own. Their seems to be a pattern present, one that appears to be a search. For what, I cannot say.
Finally, I think it's of the utmost importance to inform you that an Imperial Blockade was silenced by an enemy fleet as the conflicts on Medusa V began to escalate. While there was little data recovered, there was enough to codify the Vengeance-Class Battleship that was leading this fleet.
My Lord, it was the Metus Tenebrae.
Given the evidence, I believe it was none other than Knightmare himself issueing the commands. What the Night Lords were searching for is still unknown at this time. Knightmare's Chosen were seen in the final days battling Ordo Hereticus Stormtroopers over something within the Cathedral of the Emperor in Hive Sybilla Primus, located in Battlezone Hydra. The battle escalated as Eldar belonging to the elusive Harlequin sect became involved, battling both sides and vanishing abruptly.
Not long afterwards, orbital blockade records show several small fleets and several large ones, including the Second Grand Company's departing from the planet and seemingly abandoning the other Traitor Legions. Had they stayed and assisted, perhaps the world would have been corrupted after all. It's a twist of dark irony that we may owe some thanks to these monsters.
On another note, it seems that a small fleet connected to Crucis was seen drifting in the planet's orbit as Hell's Slingshot impacted. It would appear that Knightmare saw Crucis as one to make into an example.
Whatever the agenda, whatever the plot, I feel we must look into this further my Lord. I fear the damage this Traitor Legion could do if they re-unify, especially under one such as Lord-Commander Knightmare.
Anxiously awaiting your reply I remain your humble servant..
