Isn't being detached from the warp kind of what lost them the War in Heaven in the first place? Why are they striving for more of that?

Could you expand on what you mean for some of these? I don't know what, for example, "eye to eye" means as a flaw, or "terror" as a fighting style. Looks interesting so far, though.
