Quote: Without the Dark, there can be no Light,
Without the Lie, there can be no Truth,
Without the War, there can be no Victory,
Without the Death, there can be no sacrifice,
Without the Hope there can be no Future,
Without the Loyalty there can be no one chapter,
We have purpose
Without the Emperor, there is nothing,...
And we would have no purpose
Alignment: Lawful Neutral
Force Size: 3 Legions, 750 men per Legion
The Hands of Fate Space Marines, Better known as The Hands of Faith or the Fate Marines, is an extremely unique and rare sight of an army, holding some of, if not the most destructive forces in the known world of Solace. They hold little to no allegiance due to xenophobia running rampant in their teachings and beliefs. With a total of just 2,250 men in their 3 legions, their size may be small, but just a single Fate Marine is as deadly as 150 special soldiers.
The constructions and functions of this devastating force originated when an ancient library was discovered in the country of Zenda, a collection of buildings located within the areas known as the “Librarium of Man” some time in 2045, when Zenda was nothing more than an old Nation struggling to make a footing in this world. The discovery of the Adeptus Mechanicus Librarium gave birth to The Era of Furtherment for the Old Nation’s Army, resulting in an entire erase of their previous history to pursue the belief and ideals instilled in the books of the Librarium, the results being the creation of the Fate Marines.
The ranking of the Marines is a simplified system, with the basics beginning with the Weaken (men who must prove themselves to the cause), Aspirant (Basic level recruits), Neophytes (Scout/ Lightweight trooper), Battle Bretheren (Standard Space Marine Trooper dawning their Massive Carapace Armor), Serviens (Sergeants, commanding squads of 4 Marines), Legatus (Lieutenants, They command a platoon of Marines and is the right hand of the following rank), Veni (Captains, they control an entire company of Marines, and is the second highest rank), and Caput Magister (Chapter Master, the highest rank able to command the ENTIRE Chapter, only 3 are able to take this position, and can be overpowered by the Cortum Administratus.
The Hands of Fate is divided into 3 Legions, while having a detachment, including the following:
(Standard Marine Armors)
Holy Imperius Guardian:
A small detachment of 100 Marines, these troops serve as the bodyguards for Queen Alessia and her kingdom in the capital of Loria. Colored in White, Red and Gold, across their armor with the flag of Loria alongside their Insignia, this small attachment is considered to be the last line of defense for the kingdom. Their armory is basic shields and heavy metal shields that deflect gunfire, though if the situation calls for it, heavy artillery can be recovered from their wing of the castle.
(Standard Armor for all Fate Marines outside of the Holy Imperius)
Justinium Bringers: The 1st Legion of the Chapter, These troopers act as the main force that quickly respond to any threats both in and outside the borders of their home. With nearly indestructible armor to make up their small numbers, their armory primarily consists of a Heavy Boltor Weaponry, Chainswords, Heavy Shields, Explosive Boltor Weaponry, and etc.
Permanence: The 2nd Legion of the Chapter, these troopers act as both defense and research force. Similar weapons to the 1st Legion, they are mainly called upon when the Chapter discovers new forces, weaponry and research that must be secured for the sake of the Imperium.
Justinium Supporters: The 3rd Legion, this legion acts as reserves for both the 1st and 2nd Legions, providing back up troopers for the previous forces if the time needs it, otherwise acting as a secondary defense force for their home base.
Belief: The pursuits of this chapter focuses on the belief that the Librariums were left behind because of a failed effort from those who came before them millenia ago, though why they left is a truth they have yet to uncover. These past members were considered to be the Imperium of Man, and their god being known as the Emperor of Man. Such texts about the Emperor and his god-like work has made the entirety of Zenda declare him as their country wide-lord, and as for the Marines, they believe they are the men who are destined to bring the Emperor back to the dead while continuing to serve justice to the heretics and their dangerous works. One thing is clear when an individual joins the Fate Marines they are not a soldier for country and their chapter, but a legacy for the Imperium of Man, and a cog to keeping the glory of the Emperor alive forever.
