|Grand Master Belial,
I have been remiss in offering my personal congratulations upon your promotion to Grand Master of our order. Supreme Grand Master Azrael has chosen well. It is with great honor and humility that I assume your former position as Master of the 3rd Company.
As we embark on this new campaign to hunt the Fallen, I felt it would be wise to update you and the rest of the Inner Circle on the current status of the 3rd Company. Many of those serving in this campaign are Marines that served under you. However there are a few new Marines that you may not be acquainted with.
|In our most recent campaign, Interrogator Chaplain Bish was close but unsuccessful in gaining the confession and repentance of +++NAME CLASSIFIED+++. Brother Bish has taken full responsibility for this and has asked for the chance to redeem himself. I have granted this request and he has been given the honor of leading the 3rd Company in this campaign. As you well know he has served the 3rd Company for many years and I feel his devotion to the Company is strong and resolute despite his recent failure.
|Brother Bish has chosen Veteran Sergeant Gethel to lead the 1st Tactical Squad, Raziel, which will also accompany Brother Bish into battle. Brother Gethels valor as a Tactical Marine in the Piscina IV campaign allowed him to be inducted into the Deathwing and he is most capable of leading the 1st Squad. They, along with Brother Bish will be riding into battle in our oldest Rhino (Pic2, Pic3, Pic4, Pic5) also named for the 1st Tactical Squad.
|Your old comrade in arms, Sergeant Raphael will lead the 2nd Tactical Squad, Alatus Mortis. As the oldest member of the 3rd Company, next to Venerable Dreadnought Nathan, he has become a great asset to my command. With pride, he wears the oldest set of power armor in the entire company and he served under Supreme Grand Master Azrael when he was Master of the 3rd Company. Brother Raphael has refused induction into the Deathwing and instead has chosen to remain a humble Sergeant so that he may be on the front lines and fight face to face with our enemy. He is the epitome of what a Dark Angels Marine should strive to be.
|A relatively new Sergeant named Brother Otheos leads tactical Squad 3, Occultus Veridicus. If you remember, Brother Otheos was a tactical marine the same squad that he now leads. A Chaos Demon felled his Sergeant during the battle on Riklana. He assumed control of the squad and held the foremost position in the battle for almost 2 weeks before reinforcements arrived. His bravery and natural ability to lead won us the battle and aided in the capture of +++NAME CLASSIFIED+++ who has been handed over to the Chaplains for interrogation.|
|Devastator Squad 10, Zakkiel, will provide heavy weapons for the company. Sergeant Ariel is extremely well versed in the placement of his marines and has proven that his tactics, while unorthodox, are superior and have on more than one occasion taken the enemy by surprise. Brother Ariel was promoted to Sergeant a few months after you left us.|
|Venerable Dreadnought Nathan, the first Dreadnought of the 3rd company, will be joining us in this campaign. As you know Nathan fought along side our Primarch, Lion ElJonson, himself. While only he knows the true story of how he came to be interred in his Dreadnought. It is rumored that he fell during the battle of Caliban.
|We have chosen 2 scouts squads from the 10th company to join us. Scout squad 4, Karoz, Led by Veteran Sergeant Duma has proven its ability to infiltrate and engage the enemy in hand-to-hand combat. Squad 5, Mordad led by Sergeant Venibbeth, is also adept at infiltration but uses snipers to pick off the enemy as they advance. I find the combination of both squads to be very beneficial. The zeal of these our newest Marines can be quite inspiring.
|At your suggestion I have requested Sergeant Neria from the 2nd Company to join us. His expertise in anti tank tactics and our earlier experience in combined operations make his squad an invaluable asset to the 3rd Company. He will lead the Bike Squadron Katfiel (Pic2, Pic3) that includes the Attack Bike Qaddis.
|Also joining us from the Ravenwing will be the Land Speeder Chasan. (Pic2, Pic3)Sergeant Neria gave the crew of this Land Speeder great praise for its bravery in the Battle of Hartford.
|3 tanks have also been included in our retinue for this campaign. The first is Whirlwind Hasmed, (Pic2, Pic3, Pic4) which has been particularly blessed with accuracy in hitting its targets. The second is Vindicator Valoel (Pic2, Pic3). Valoels crew is incredibly fierce and has on more than one occasion sprinted to the front lines and released its payload of imperial justice with extreme prejudice. The third is brought to us by our First Company the Deathwing. The Land Raider Loelet (Pic2, Pic3, Pic4, Pic5, Pic6, Pic7) has served them well and its Machine Spirit is strong. It's armor is nearly impenetrable and the fear is causes as it roles on to the battlefield is immense. Woe to the enemy that falls beneath it's treads!|
|3 days from now, Brother Bish will assemble this force in the Great Hall of the Dark Angels (Pic2) After he is finished blessing the troops and equipment they will leave the Rock and embark on this most important work.
This is a formidable force that has proven itself on the battlefield. It will succeed in hunting the Fallen and all other enemies of the Emperor. It is with regret that I am unable to lead this force myself but the mission you have given me at the behest of the Inner Circle is an important one and I will embark on it immediately.
I pray this report has been satisfactory and that we will speak again soon.
Until the curse is lifted,
