The Ultramarines probably won't be too hard on Leandros. On paper, it sounded like he absolutely had to make a judgment call. They can't really "punish" him for something that both the Codex and Astartes common sense would tell him to think - that someone who survived so much exposure to the Warp should be suspected of 'something'. It would start a philosophical debate within the Chapter that would adversely affect the ability of its members to trust each other, at a time when the Chapter is still recovering from assaults by the Tyranids and the Chaos legions.

However, the officers who knew Titus will not want Leandros under their command. Which would probably be all of them. At best, Leandros will be promoted to Sergeant in charge of guarding Guilliman's garden or some other far-removed posting. At worst, they'll put him in the Assault Company and get him to a battlefield. Any battlefield.

I'm just bullshitting this though, as Relic probably will not want to go THAT deep into the current lore.

>> No.16265694

On paper he wasn't completely in the wrong by reporting it to the Inquisitor

But it's like ratting out your assistant to the regional manager to the CEO of the whole company for stealing a company pen. It's astoundingly petty and it doesn't respect the chain of command.

He should've brought it to the attention of the chapter chaplains.

>> No.16265779


I'm not saying he shouldn't have. But I am saying that the Chapter would probably do well to just file it away and hope word doesn't spread out to the other Companies, while Calgar and his council deal with the meddling of the Inquisition. The first thing Tzeentch would want and the last thing Ultramar wants is for this event to sow discord and distrust in the Chapter.

>> No.16266970

Am I the only one who thinks that the Inquisition taking an Ultramarine captain would cause far more political backlash than it seems to have? I mean it was carried out so casually.

There's only ten captains in the chapter, you'd think Calgar would be like, "NOW HOLD THE FUCK ON" when one of his guys was going to be brought in, since you don't just become captain in a prestigious chapter like that if you haven't proven yourself time and time again .

That, and Calgar has a lot of political clout.

I know the whole ending was sequel setup, but still.

>> No.16266995

Well, Blank would be picked up on before the guy even got his scout armor. That leaves latent psyker or worse as the main reasons the guy was able to resist.

Now with the former, its a "we'll get you sanctioned nice and fast if you comply" deal from that inquisitor (anyone else think that's the nicest genuine-worry inquisitor we've ever seen? damn those Ordo fuckers are good at what they do).

But what if its the other one... Then its a problem. Like "made a deal with tzeench" problem.

Of course they probably aren't gonna be that deep in the plot, meaning the expansion or sequel is going to either have you as Chaos, or, more likely, you got stripped of your purity seals (yay metroid) but are now sanctioned to be a librarian, and will thus slowly gain abilities throughout the game in that way.

Well if the Inquisition makes a big deal out of it then yeah shit will be flung back and forth like a galactic snowball fight.

There's a whole slew of candidates that have been itching for the position for yeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaars.

Here's a fix for you:

Titus isn't captain of the Second Company. He just isn't. It's never actually said that he is. He's captain of some other battle company or even a reserve company. He's got gold bling because it's an honour marking for him and his command squad.

Does that make canon sense? No not really. But hey Second company wasn't gold until last edition anyway. You can kinda overlook it. Pretend that the rest of his company is dead (but would've had black or red trim) and the Ultras you meet up with on the bridge are from the actual second company and thus not under Titus' direct command.

It's better than alternate realities or claiming that Titus is Alpha Legion while Leandros is double Alpha Legion and the Inquisitor is secretly Leandros or whatever.

>> No.16268533


Titus is a captain, and captains never wear helmets to make sure they can be identified by the marines that followed them.
Otherwise Private Retard can bark orders and they need to double check to see if they listen. Also because it makes them stand out on tabletop.

Sidonus had a beard. Beards are uncomfortable in helmets. Also he's too grizzeled and manly to not look his enemy in the eye.

Leandros wore a helmet for about 10 minutes before it got knocked off and shot up. He looks at it in game after it's full of dents and holes and sighs.

All the more highly ranked space marines that don't wear helmets have a force field generator thing instead.
