Remember, the Legions (with 1 or 2 exceptions) were scattered throughout various Expeditionary Fleets and only rarely mustered as a single, coherent Legion. Thus some Space Marines, Captains or Battle-Groups may well have been absent from the central command of their Legion for decades.
Argel Tal went 40 years without seeing his Primarch for instance, and some World Eaters hadn't seen Angron for over 100.

Yes. Pariahs still exist, but it's no longer part of a Necron scheme to immunize the galaxy to the Warp.

Ah, not quite. I meant that the Pariahs are still in the fluff, but as far as I know they retconned them being humans that were unwittingly bearing a Necron-engineered gene causing them to be blanks.

The Necron Pariahs, the half-Necron half-human Pariahs, are completely retconned. Pariahs, blanks, are still in the fluff. They're just not Necrons anymore.

Not necessarily, given that they still feature in a few Black Library novels like Caves of Ice.

Interestingly enough, the necrons themselves have never been directly credited with engineering the pariah gene, but it is hinted (or was) that the c'tan had a part to play in its development, most notably the Deceiver.

Best theory I can work out is a Deceiver shard going necron on humans with the right traits.

Realistically it's probably a case of outdated fluff being nearly current, but the window is there for speculation regardless.

Oh sorry, I should have been more specific as I meant the Necron Pariahs.

Don't recall any mention of Titan Legions or any names of the Legios in any of the Heresy novels featuring the Night Lords or the Night Lord novels. The Night Lords feature in the forgeworld Betrayal book do they not? Might be something in there if anyone has it.

Spoiler alert
---





1) In Know no Fear, How was Kor Phaeron aware of Omegon? He mentions having two copies of Lorgars work for the Alpha Legion.

2) What were humans fighting in the DaoT to require all the machines we in WH40k: Thunderhawks, Rhinos, Land Cruisers, etc. Some of the machines just don't make sense for humans to have operated and to have used in war. And again, who were they fighting to have required such varied designs?

3) Who are the Ferrymen in The Emperor's Gift? At first I thought it was an Exorcist, being an Astartes with no soul, but then we see him lift a casket unarmored with ease that four Grey Knights struggled to carry together.

4) Since Grey Knights apparently can have aspirations, such as to further themselves up the political ladder like we see in the EG with that one Grey Knight who got killed by Grimnar, do you suppose the Exorcists are better at the role of daemon hunting? They have no souls so they cannot be possessed and due to a lack of a soul, they probably don't have the desire to prosper inherent in human souls. Grey Knights have souls and in the EG, Hyperion states that their immunity to corruption lies in their training more so than being imbued with the Emperor's DNA/essence.
