Praetors are the mightiest warriors and battle-leaders of the Space Marine Legions, second only to the god-like Primarchs in martial skill and generalship. Those that choose to march to war clad in Cataphractii Terminator armour place great value in its enhanced resilience, which can stoically weather even the heaviest of incoming fire. These hulking warlords stride into the thickest fighting, leading their warriors to victory across hundreds of battlefields.
The Chaplain Order, established towards the end of the Great Crusade, was intended to create a cadre of fearsome veteran warriors who would enforce a cohesion of doctrine and belief in the scattered and increasingly idiosyncratic Legions. These officers are a fanatical exemplar of the martial oaths of the Astartes, wielding their deadly badge of office – the Crozius Arcanum – as they inspire their allies on the battlefield.
