Grey knights might have purity seals from their eyebrows to their toenails but they are still psykers. In order to use their powers they have use the warp, thus opening themselves to corruption.

The issue is not a matter of whether the sisters died willingly or not. The problem is that the Grey Knights, long presented as incorruptible and puritanical, used a blood ritual to create arcane amulets to ward them from an enemy. It's a symptom of a larger problem, namely that the GKs are now radicals.

Because piousness in the emprah makes you immune to battlecannons.
Grey knights, being space marines, don't worship the emprah as a god, and cannot do so, because it goes against all their beliefs, rites, and even identity.

Thus, if you want to walk through acid blood that melts terminators, you have to use sister bodyparts as talismans, which render you immune, and makes it so you can kick ass again.

The only time the Emperor has ever been implied to have dealt with sorcerous powers (chaotic, practiced warpcraft, not inherant psykery) is when a daemon told someone that he bargained with the Chaos Gods for the knowledge and power to create the Primarchs. Which could well be a lie. There is nothing else to substantiate that the Emperor used such rituals.

Incorrect. There are two examples of Sisters falling in the fluff, aside from the original "only sororitas to fall to Chaos."

1) Daemonifuge, half a convent gets corrupted by the direct presence of a Keeper of Secrets and the study of the nature of Slaanesh (for the purposes of defeating its forces). The other half are turned into a hive-mind/mockery of life.

2) Ciaphas Cain book where a Chaos general has the power to convert people with his voice alone. When the effect is suppressed (pressence of a null) the afflicted sisters immediately kill themselves.

Read Daemonifuge again because the sisters in it didn't fall. They were crafted into a huge living fleshball by a keeper of secrets, but they still didn't fall. They used their combined hatred of chaos and faith in the emperor to form a new sister to kill the demons because big fleshballs have trouble killing heretics and demons.

Heck, a sister might get possessed by a demon forcing the sister to move like a puppet, which is still not falling to chaos. But the instant the demon isn't giving 100% total concentration and all of it's power on the sister she will kill herself to take the demon out.

You're assuming that every single man is a fundamentally selfish individual who, at best, pays lip service to the Emperor. This is not the case. The Imperium as a whole is unified by faith. The worship of a common deity, even in different forms, gives the millions of unique worlds enough kinship to not strike off on their own at every turn and prey on their neighbours. Other control factors are in place too, of course, but faith and the sense of duty that goes along with it is the most significant of them.

Yeah, dispite thier hatred, the Craftworld Eldar and the Sisters have a lot in common. Both are very heavy on self control and keeping pure through iron will. The Eldar temper that with power, the Sisters faith.

Your thinking is the product of a cynical, secular age which prizes individual excellence and rewards those who desire upwards mobility in society. There is pride to be had in knowing your duty, performing it and excelling at it. Entire cultures have been based on such principles. People of the Imperium are brought up in a society where faith, loyalty and duty are the cornerstones of all morality. There are exceptions, of course, plenty of them. Many people fail to live up to the standards of honest worship. It's a rare few that don't believe in some capacity, though. Even pirates and renegades maintain shrines to the Emperor, even if they prey on the Imperium.

Within the setting and universe there are rumors of sisters being corrupted. And there are people within the setting who believe this to be true. The thing is that the rulebooks say NOPE ONLY ONE. EVER.

Both of these statements are true. Some characters within setting talk of some sisters getting corrupted but the actual truth is there has only been one.

It's like the Imperial Primer. It says that orks are 4' tall, weak in close range combat and easily killed. This is what most guardsmen actually believe. Doesn't change that orks are nothing like this.

A lot of that is the mentioned 'Xenos' issue. I was simply commenting on the fact that they are very similar in some ways, not that they would be friends. They hate each other, it's more 'In another universe the could have been friends'

>> No.14601857

That's because they're tied to the Ecclesiarchy, an organisation still suffering from a good dose of bad rep from the Age of Apostasy. They're wary of the Ecclesiarchy getting any real power since, given popular support form the masses, they could get away with a hell of alot.

Astartes aren't exactly beloved either, mind you. Their notorious independence means they can't be given orders, only asked for help, and even then you can't guarantee they'll do what you want them to. If the wrong chapter shows up for the wrong job then there's going to be alot of friction (Salamanders culling a population, Flesh Tearers fighting a defensive battle, etc).

There's also general mistrust between different Adeptus in general. The Navy and the Arbites, for example, do not care for each other. The Navy has its own set of traditions and likes to handle things internally. The Arbites, as the keepers of the Law, hold that it's their right and duty to investigate and deal with affairs involving the Navy.

At the same time they're seen as a safeguard against Ecclesiarchal corruption. The origins of the organisation came from realising they'd been duped and promptly executing the man responsible. Any priest who tries the same thing Vandire did does so knowing his most skilled assets will turn on him in a heartbeat if they suspect he's not acting with the Ecclesiarchy's and Emperor's best interests at heart.

They were also sanctified as the exception to the rule laid down by Sebastian Thor, currently the greatest saint in the Imperium. That gives them alot of credibility.

The lower class cannon fodder grunts might like the sisters, but the officers who's opinion matter have more respect for the Marines, who have been fighting for the Imperium long before the sisters came around and generally win most of their battle.

And why do the leader of the Custodes and the head of the guard like them anyway?

The head of the Guard because the Guard like them and you can count on the Sisters to actually be there for a battle rather than 'Nah, too busy'

It does a decent job as being a Zelda/God of war clone, and has a few nifty things like a giant flaming horsie you can summon at will and a portal gun, but on the whole the game is, really, pretty damn average.

The Admech and Ecclesiarchy have an uneasy existence. Their dogma is in conflict and, even if the Omnissiah is supposed to be the Emperor, neither side quite buys it as a whole.
