Not one being had ever contacted the Apocalypse God's dimension or even attempted to think about a third dimension existing. This all change when the space marine chapter, Gorgon's Fist, sent out a distress beacon out before their planet was sucked into The Gate of Ashes, along with the entire chapter. With the distress beacon came a box recording of the chapter's master, Alexander, The Pure. The box recording, designated "First Contact", said that his captain's reported seeing human like figures coming out of the portal and descending upon their planet. Alexander then reported that the figures looked like "Angels of purity and light" before a loud crackle could be heard and then silence. Some tech priest say that it may have been feed back from the vox entering the portal, others say that it may have been the planet collapsing on itself. Though all have different opinions, all agree on this statement. The planet is now lost.
Descent of Angels
Three months after First Contact was heard, a second portal appeared outside of Terra herself. This portal gleamed with light and everything that gazed upon it could not take their eyes off of it. The only ones who were not mesmerized by the portal were the Adaptes Custodes and three squads of Grey Knight that had received the blessing of their inquisitor after vanquishing a daemon that would have claimed a different world. A figure descended upon the world and landed in an Imperial Guard stronghold. The figure was a woman that was dressed in ancient Terran clothing. She wore a victorian style dress with an umbrella. Upon looking upon her, the Imperial Guardsmen seemed hypnotized by her "Beauty and mystic grace". But, on further examination, her skin with silky white, but her eyes were as dark as space itself. She told the Imperial Guardsmen that she has looked upon the human race with prideful eyes, always admiring their ways of living. Then she said that in order to be like her and her people, they must abolish their foolish emperor that had abandon them so. But, while The Lady in Black spoke, a guardsman, pure of heart, sneaked out of the stronghold and went to warn the Adaptus Custodes. However, he was killed by strange creatures that were bathed in black. During this, however, The Lady in Black had the hearts and minds of the Guardsmen that were within the stronghold. Lord General Cratos of the Guardsmen asked if she could help them destroy the one who was holding them back. The Lady in Black told him to shoot one of his own men. Without hesitating, Cratos pulled out his bolt pistol and fired at his commissar. The commissar looked at his body and saw that the bolt had fallen before his boots. The Guardsmen then believed that The Lady in Black was their true savior. After 10 whole days, the Guardsmen, now "Vanguards of the Dark Light", had amassed almost 2 entire regiments of Imperial Guardsmen while The Lady in Black hid their presence and blessed them with the power of disorder. After the 11th day, the Vanguards marched towards the Imperial Palace, equipped and blessed by their new gods. The Adaptus Custodes shot into the group of approaching guardsmen but found that none of their shots could penetrate an invisible wall of energy that The Lady in Black had placed around them. Lord General Cratos walked right up to the Golden Throne and tore him from the Golden Throne, replacing the Beacon of Light with the new Beacon of Dark Light that The Lady in Black was maintaining. When the news of the Emperor being overthrown reached the ears of the rest of the Imperium, it reached them in a different setting. The news was that the Emperor had chosen a new successor in place of him to lead Man Kind into a new age of prosperity and hope. Some Space Marine chapters hesitated to call this new Empress as their new god. Most accepted it, thinking that the Emperor had taken a new body in order to better lead his sons into battle. One chapter outright refused to accept this new ruler as their goddess. The Desert Bandits became the first chapter ever to secede from the Imperium and not fall to Chaos in the process.
The Purge of the Fallen Angels
After The Lady in Black slew the Emperor and took the Imperial Palace with the Vanguards of the Dark Light, most Imperial citizens believe her as the new Emperoress. Using her power to keep Imperial ships from not using Warp Travel, she issued her first order to the Inquisition and the Space Marine chapters. The order was to purge ten thousand Imperial Planets and 7 chapters of space marines. At first, most space marine chapters thought that she was mad. ThenThe Ultramarine and the Dark Angels began purging planets around the Imperium. The Salamanders and the Iron Fists, who were one of the chapters who were to be purged, evacuated their planets and went to seek refuge with their fellow "heretic" chapters. 7 chapters soon became 9 after the Space Wolves and their splinter chapter, The Frost Dragons, began secretly evacuating their planets and hiding them. Soon the number grew as The Lady in Black began to condem chapters to be purged after she found out about the secret evacuations. Soon, reports of chapters and other imperial citizens seeking refuge with the Eldar and the Tau empire began to come in, making the purge more brutal. Two chapters, The Desert Bandits and The Sons of the Sand, made a valiant stand against the combined force of seven whole chapters, one of those chapters were the Blood Ravens who soon proved to be using the assault as a distraction while some of their chapter evacuated the nomads floatillas. Both chapters held on long enough to receive help from Freedoms Legion and the Tau Empire, who were the allies of Freedoms Legion. At the end of the year, over fourtyseven trillion humans and three hundred chapters had been purged, including the Nova Marines, who had been betrayed by the Ultramarines to march into a large field only to see their battle brothers turn upon them.
