Knight Champions of Helios
Captain "Sir" Galahad awoke to the familiar look of his quarters in the Fortress Monestary on the Knights of Terra's homeworld Terror. He sat up and looked to his left side. An eldar lance had gone straight through it his chest and there was a metal plate over it. Donning his artificer armour he walked slowly out of his quarters. Outside stood Brother's Kiol and Salviun, members of his company. They followed him slowly as he made his way through the fortress monestary towards "Sire" Beziel's quarters. It took him an hour to walk and several times he had to lean against the great walls as the walk drained him of his little energy. Each time Kiol and Salviun grabbed him before he fell. Finally he made it to the doors guarded by 4 honour guards. One marched into Beziels room anouncing the Captain.
A moment later Galahad was ushered in. Standing next to his throne Beziel watched as Galahad limped in. He went to bow but before he could Beziel said "Don't brother. In your state bowing my make the bleeding start again."
"I apologise "Sire"."
"My lord, may i ask, what happened to my company on Helios, when we were pushing the Eldar back."
"As far as i have gathered from your marines, after you were wounded the marines pushed the Eldar through their webway before destroying it from orbit. After the counter attack only 20 of your marines survived." Beziel told him "This couldn't of come at a worse time, the 5th being almost wiped out."
"So whats next Sire?"
"I'm afraid that you have to continue in your duties with your company. We have been petitioned by the Imperial Guard to send more men to Cadia. Lucky for you I have just promoted 10 scouts to Brother marines which will go straight to your company. The rest will be made up by the 11th company."
Two hours later:
Galahad sat in his quarters on the strike cruiser "Last out" in silence. It would take at least a few days to get to Cadia and he would have to be on top form for then." Standing he walked towards the training area where his men were sparring. Walking to Kiol he tapped him on the shoulder and signalled to him to step away from the sparring session he was having with Salviun. Salviun bowed and assumed a combat stance. Galahad mirrored him and charged. Ducking under Galahads first sweep, Salviun back handed him, who twisted away and kicked Salviun in the chest, knocking himover. Salviun leapt to his feet and dumped tackled Galahad. Galahad rolled over and brought his elbow down onto Salviun's stomach, leaping up both marines assumed combat stances, and were about to re-engage when pain shot through Galahads chest and he fell. Before he hit the floor Kiol grabbed him and signalled apothecary Asoth.
