The Golden Sentinels

It all began when a new chapter was formed. The new chapter was called The Golden Sentinels and was formed by Lustig Wiltag. The chapter's home planet was the bustling hive world of Miros. And from the city's of Miros recruits flooded into the chapter. It seemed none could stop The Golden Sentinels as they gaurded the surrounding planets from all manner of alien threat. Yet it was on the chapters greatest day that the true colors of the chapter were revealed.

The battle for Orvar 4.

The future of the Golden Sentinels was bright as they travelled to Orvar 4. They had been rewarded for their efforts by being relieved briefly from their duty's, leaving the 3rd company to watch over the planets. But when they arrived at Orvar 4 to meet the Governor that had called for them the hideous truth was revealed. For no sooner had they landed on the planet did an almighty rift in the very fabric of reality tear open. Through this rift poured thousands of foul demons of Chaos. The unprepared Space Marines were torn apart by this unexpected attack. Those that remained turned to Lustig, their leader for guidance. But Lustig was not as he seemed.


Lustig had been tainted by Chaos and given false promises. Even as the remaining Golden Sentinels watched he twisted and mutated into a demon prince. Some fell back in horror but many knew of this corruption and had also been tempted by the Chaos Gods. The corrupt marines turned their guns on their own battle-brothers. Many perished before Lustig called for the bloodshed to stop. Only a small handful of pure from the once proud chapter remained. But when all seemed lost the unbelievable happened.


Suddenly, and without warning, a hideous scream filled the air. With an almighty eruption of noise the rift in the fabric of reality dissapeared. The demons now had no way of leaving the planet. Lustig and the other greater demons roared and looked around for the source of this commotion. The traitor marines stared around with wild-eyed horror, expecting attack from every direction. And then, with a roar of engines, a Thunderhawk gunship appeared from the clouds and landed with a resounding thud. For a moment all was quite as the remaining marines recognized the markings of their own 3rd company. But then more Thunderhawks fell from the clouds and landed, close to the first. These Thunderhawks bore the insignia of Ultramarines, Grey Knights, Blood Angels, Iron Fists, Dark Angels, White Scars and many others, Grey Knights. With a shreek of hydraulics the doors to these mighty ships clanged open and the pround Adeptus Astartes of many chapters, united together, poured out onto Orvar 4.

To The Death.

The recently arrived Space Marines tore a bloody gash in the surprised Chaos forces. Leading this attack was the Golden Sentinels 3rd company. And at the very tip of the Space Marines was none other than the Grand Librarian of the Golden Sentinels, Romero Nellis. For it was Romero who had battled the very Chaos Gods themselves and managed to close the demonic rift. Romero had known of the corruption in Lustig and much of the chapter for a long time. With this knowledge he had formed the 3rd compnay himself, ensuring that it contained only pure Space Marines. He had known the fate of the forces going to Orvar 4 before they had even set off. Knowing this he had called upon all the other chapters of the Space Marines and led them to Orvar 4. Within an hour the battle was won and the demons had been slaughtered. Only Lustig was unaccounted for. For as the fight first began Lustig had run from the feild of battle and escaped to the Eye of Terror, to lick his wounds and prepare his revenge.

The Purging.

Romero thanked the chapters and gathered the remenats of the Golden Sentinels with the 3rd company. Knowing that the risk of temptation was high he decided, with a heavy heart, that all that remained of the lost chapter had to be destroyed. With this in mind he returned to Miros and struck down the corrupt techmarines responsible for the geneseed. He then took this geneseed and all the inhabitants of Miros. He recruited all of the male populace and transported the females to the neighboring world before turning the guns of his strike cruiser "Immortal" on Miros itself. After one hour of constant pounding the once bustling hive planet of Miros was nothing more than a death world. Romero then turned from the blazing planet and led a bloody crusade across the galexy. After 500 years only the pure remained in his chapter. Over this time Romero had trained one young Space Marine, Baltus Aldir, to a level of physic power almost the same as his own. And after entrusting the future of the chapter to Baltus Romero turned from his chapter an traveled alone into the Eye of Terror, seeking Lustig's blood. He was to never be seen again. Baltus then named the new chapter Romero's Lions in his masters memory. It is tradition from that day on that the chapter is led not by a Chapter Master, but by the Chief Librarian. And after 1000 years of service as Cheif Librarian they must train another to the best of their ability and then follow Romero into the Warp, never to return.
