How do Freeblade knights live for so long?
Was reading the Imperial Knights Codex and some things just didn't make sense, so an Imperial Knight is a combat walker comparly to a smaller titan that for the most part is mobile and got a big fudging chainsword or lance with a highly trained human pilot ok...sounds cool and maybe be gundam eventually lol But what I don't get is how the hell do some FreeBlade Knights live for hundreds, if not thousands of years when there just humans?
The Green Knight of Bretonna cough..cough I mean Gerantius, The Forgotten Knight or Green Knight has lived for thousands of years wih no explanation whatsoever. It is controlled by a smart AI? doubt it, maybe descents of the original pilot but seems unlikely to me, Could they be affected by the Warp? possibly
"I am Honored to call every single one of you my brother.....You will die today, I will die today but if we must die for the greater good of humanity so be it. With our deaths, our children will blossom into the stars with the Primarches of anew and start a new, grander crusade in the name of the Emperor and as the Emperor's chosen, we will guide them to that path......Show them the true fury of the Emperor's wraith one last time my brothers!.....Forward in the name of the Emperor and may you find salvation with the Emperor when the end comes for you.
