Subject: Adeptus Astartes un-sanctioned fratricide.
Location: Majorian Quintus.
The Badab War was without doubt the worst example of inter-Astartes bloodshed since the Great Heresy near ten millennia past. There are many mysteries pertaining to this conflict, not least how a noted hero of the Imperium could drag four whole Adeptus Astartes chapters and seven Imperial sectors into open rebellion and later outright heresy. I will not try to shed light on the path to corruption trodden by Lufgt Huron, others have already tried, and failed, to elucidate the seed of damnation that led to outright war amongst those that would call each other brother. (See report no:8304gamma022/106) This report deals with the almost unknown events on Majorian Quintus, in the Gaugean Rifts region on the galactic western rim of the Maelstrom. A previously unknown battle site of the Badab War was discovered there by Adeptus Mechanicus Explorator Fleet 01001111 01001101 01001110 01001001 01001111 00100000 01010110 01001001 01010010 01000111 01001001 01001100 01001001 01010101 01010011 00001010 (The servants of the Omnissiah never cease to amaze me with their florid nomenclature). What makes this battle site so singularly interesting and deserving of both study and the most rigorous application of secrecy and security is that the opposing forces both fought for the Imperium. Battle field analysis has revealed that demi-company strength forces of both the Red Scorpions and Raptors chapters engaged each other to their near mutual destruction. Both these chapters fought together forging many ties of brotherhood during the war despite their differences in outlook and in preferred way of war. That both chapters continued to have good relations until the Raptors were withdrawn from the war zone in 912M41 indicates that they were unaware of the events on Majorian Quintus and so it remains to this day. The Astartes near pathological obsession with honour would have demanded violent retribution. Why did these close allies turn on each other? What drew them so far from the main area of operations? We can only hypothesise; perhaps close proximity to the daemonic influence of the Maelstrom corrupted one or both groups? If this is so then the lack of knowledge from their parent chapters suggests that the turncoats emerged victorious. Perhaps the self styled Tyrant of Badab (a man as gifted in political scheming and oratory as he was in war) managed to prize one of them from the loyalist coalition of forces? Xenos involvement is a possibility with the western fringes of the Maelstrom having been the site of two previous Enslaver outbreaks. Adeptus Astartes falling under the spell of these fell parasitic xenoforms is an appalling and thankfully rare occurrence (cross ref:4351sigma226/370.)
