“Destroy the weak!”
The Steel Confessors are a Loyalist Space Marine Chapter secretly Founded during the 36th Millennium’s 19th Founding by the Adeptus Mechanicus for its own use from the gene-seed of the Iron Hands. After their discovery by the Inquisition, the Steel Confessors were forced to become an independent Chapter of the Adeptus Mechanicus, but they still maintain unusually close ties with the Mechanicum of Mars. They recently successfully defended their homeworld, the Forge World of Kalevala, from an attack by the Tyranid Hive Fleet Leviathan, though at great cost to the Chapter.
Brother Auriga was one of the few Veterans to survive both the defeat at Kracsis IV and the defensive of Kalevala. He was soon given an opportunity to serve in the Deathwatch, an honor he volunteered for. Auriga has a almost fanatical zeal for killing the Tyranid menace.
Auriga is specialised in Air Combat tactics, surprisingly Thunderhawk is only a recent appointment.
