Who Holds the Horizon?
Scintilla is the capital of the Calixis sector, home of the best and the brightest, or so its nobility would have you believe. Leading lives of comfort and plenty, these aristocrats often seek adventure in the service. Others join the guard out of family obligations or to help start a career in politics. Since they have never suffered from want, they have training of the highest caliber.
Scintilla’s 1st has been unwavering in battle for generations. A single platoon of the 1st turned the tide of battle during the liberation of Drusus 900 years ago, and the regiment has continued to excel from that day forward. Most recently, Scintilla’s 1st succeeded in flanking a Necron army 135 years ago in the Iox sector. Soldiers returned home as heroes just five years ago. The call has come again, to serve the Emperor in the nearby Spinward Front, and a new generation has answered. They are led by Col. Zetkin, a woman known to stay the course even in dire circumstances.
