Explorator Cohort


The Adeptus Mechanicus population on Saiphan has dwindled for centuries as the local populace turned on them. Being a feudal world, with limited ambition to make it past an agrarian society, the Tech Priests were frustrated with the planet's progress and conflicted records state they attempted to take over the governorship of the plane. A majority of population views the Adeptus Mechanicus as monsters who kidnap people in the night to create servitors. With it being nearly impossible to gain new followers, the tech priests upgraded themselves to adapt to harsher conditions. They recused themselves to a geothermal power plant in the north far from population centers where they bide their time and conduct research unknown to the rest of the planet.

The Skitarii forces of the Adeptus Mechanicus take a variety of forms. On warships and Explorator vessels operating within the Koronus Expanse and the Calixis Sector, specially-programmed Skitarii are a necessity, for they serve as the members of boarding parties, security personnel and bodyguards where other forms of Skitarii would be impractical. Within the Mechanicus territories of the Calixis Sector, these warriors are known as Classiarii, a term of obscure meaning within the ancient traditions of the Calixian Mechanicus, believed to mean "mariners." Nigh-impervious to vacuum, fitted with thick, implanted armour, and equipped with an array of implanted weaponry designed for void combat and combat in the cramped enclosures of a starship, a Classiarius trooper is literally built for ship-to-ship combat.
