Lo and behold, what happened.
They are the champions of reason, order and righteousness, holding back Daemons and the scions of the Dark Gods. There is no greater threat to the galaxy than the denizens of the Warp and the Ruinous Powers that rule them. Daemons and gods, these otherworldly horrors tear at the veil between the Realm of Chaos and realityhungry for the souls of men and the ruin of worlds.
If left unchecked and unopposed, Daemons would claim the universe for their own, pulling down the pillars of creation and fashioning a never-ending nightmare where once the galaxy had been.
Mortal foes cannot stand against the Imperium when it is roused to war, but the Daemon is not mortal. History has proven that all men can be corrupted and even the mighty Space Marine Chapters are not immune to the unholy temptations of the Dark Gods.
In His infinite wisdom the Emperor foresaw that even should He prevail against Horus the threat of Chaos would remain. A Blade Against Chaos "One unbreakable shield against the coming darkness, One last blade forged in defiance of fate, Let them be my legacy to the galaxy I conquered, And my final gift to the species I failed.
Even now few in the Imperium of the late 41st Millennium know of their existence, and those that do possess only fragments of the truth.
Legends and myths surround the Grey Knights, and those tales told about them are filled with broad misconceptions and fanciful lies.
The vast hordes of Humanity know nothing of the Grey Knights, and the handful of citizens that have heard the name uttered assume them to be an arm of the much-feared Inquisition or a Chapter of the mythical, superhuman Space Marines.
Some of the stories and fables taught by the Adeptus Ministorum hold the barest hints of the existence of the Grey Knights, but they are portrayed as silver-armoured angels, ghostly manifestations of the God-Emperor or shimmering reflections of the saints themselves as often as not.
Those soldiers that have fought alongside the Grey Knights and retained both their lives and their minds recall them only as Astartes of an unknown Space Marine Chapter, their unique weapons and psychic powers attributed to forgotten technology and tactical doctrine. Other Space Marines know better should they see a Grey Knight in battle, but are wise enough not to dwell long in thought about these mysterious warriors.
Legend has it that the Grey Knights were founded on the order of the Emperor Himself, in the final bloody days of the Horus Heresy. The Emperor knew that the time was coming when He would have to face His traitorous son Horus and that He might well not survive. However, He foresaw that, even if Horus and his armies were defeated, the power of Chaos would remain a constant threat to Humanity.
His greatest warriors, the Space Marines, had proven fallible to the temptations of the Dark Gods and so the Emperor set out to create a new soldier in His bid to protect Mankind. This new breed of Space Marine would be stronger of will than his brothers, and unwavering in his loyalty to Mankind, able to stand naked before the power of the Warp and survive unscathed.
As the Emperor prepared for the final battle with Horus, Malcador crossed the divided Imperium, searching corpse-choked battlefields and worlds drowning in blood for those the Emperor sought.
No other man save the Emperor Himself could have been given such a task and hope to complete it. When the Master of Mankind looked upon those Malcador had brought He knew that there was yet hope for Humanity. Twelve men in all had been gathered, four noble lords and governors of the highest order, complemented by eight Space Marines.
These eight selected Space Marines all possessed paranormal skills as psykers that had been kept dormant as required by the edicts of the Council of Nikaea -- the Council had ruled during the Great Crusade that the use of psychic powers was forbidden to Space Marines because of the dangers innate to manipulation of the Empyrean.
These warriors willingly cast aside their former loyalties to their given Space Marine Legions and Primarchseither because of the corruption of these Legions by Chaosor because they realised that loyalty to the Emperor required them to sacrifice all ties to their former Battle-Brothers.
That some of these Battle-Brothers came from Legions that had turned Traitor proved the depth of their loyalty to the Emperor, for there can be no greater challenge for a Space Marine than to defy the word of his Primarch. After meeting the candidates, the Emperor is believed to have responded, "Malcador, you have judged well.
These eight Space Marines do indeed have a vital role to play in the future of the Imperium, though veiled in secrecy will they be.Colliding Skies is the third studio album by Australian progressive metal band Chaos Divine.
