Where the Triumph of Saint Katherine marches, there shines the Emperor’s
radiance. With every step, this funerary procession spreads the glory
of the martyred Matriarch further across the galaxy, scattering before
it the enemies of the faith and instilling in the Sisters of Battle the
fiery conviction of Katherine herself. Yet it is not only the founder of
the Order of Our Martyred Lady who is venerated by the Triumph, for
through its presence are the spirits of all six Matriarchs carried to
the front lines.
Accompanying the blessed bier that bears the skeletal remains of Saint
Katherine within her reliquary armour are six members of the Orders
Pronatus. Each of these handpicked exemplars of the Adepta Sororitas
embodies one of the canonised Matriarchs of the six original Orders:
– Saint Katherine, Order of Our Martyred Lady (very front): Wielding the
Martyr’s sword and the Praesidium Protectiva, this sister embodies the
Spirit of Saint Katherine. The Praesidium Protectiva was once Saint
Katherine’s own shield and contains a shard of the Emperor’s armour. As
such, it helps protect the processional, as well as nearby Sisters.
– Saint Dominica, Order of the Ebon Chalice (front left): Bearing a
simulacrum of the Ebon Chalice, a black goblet imbued with ever-burning
flame, this sister embodies the Spirit of Saint Dominica.
– Saint Mina, Order of the Bloody Rose (back left): This sister carries
the Petals of the Bloody Rose, ritually scattered to symbolise the blood
of the enemy spilt by the Red Saint before being martyred.
– Saint Silvana, Order of the Argent Shroud (very back): A simulacrum of
the Argent Shroud is mounted on a banner atop her backpack. This sister
follows at the back of the procession giving sermons and reading aloud
the deeds of Saint Silvana, while the shroud above her depicts the
skeletal remains of the Saint Silvana.
– Saint Lucia, Order of the Valorous Heart (back right): Holding aloft
the Icon of the Valorous Heart, this pulsing icon brings strength to the
warriors of the Imperium who hear its beat.
– Saint Arabella, Order of the Sacred Rose (front right): Swinging the
Censer of the Sacred Rose in their left hand, the censer burns with an
eternal flame, imbuing nearby Sisters with the strength to spread the
Emperor’s truth with even greater zeal.
