The Lion a loyalist
Ive just started reading fallen angels again for the second time and came across something which should prove alot towards the lion being loyal.
Alot of people seem to think it was mostly terrans who where sent back to caliban but in fact its mostly calibanites who are sent back and the lion surrounds himself with terrans. Page reference 15 it had escaped no one that virtually all of the astartes being sent home were from caliban rather than terra.. Now if the lion was planning on turning traitor and was purging his legion of those who would not follow him then why surround himself with terrans who would be more likely to be loyal to the emperor.
Now heres another point which is even more obvious. its actually decades before the heresy when the lion sends them back to caliban so how would he be purging the legion or even thinking about turning traitor when its decades before the heresy even starts. Page Reference 35 Luther and the rest seemed to have been entirely banished from the primarchs mind and as the years lengthened into decades rhunours and speculation had begun to circulate.
these were the thoughts of chaplain Nemiel on the embarkation deck.
The first chapter is all about luther being sent home to caliban and it says on the top of the page its the 147th year of the great crusade.
the next chapter which is up to date states at the top of the page that it is now the 200th year of the great crusade just when the lion finds out about the heresy.
53 years have past since luther was sent home befors the heresy. Enough said i think.
