The XVIth Legion’s 51st Company is an isolated contingent of loyalist astartes in the eastern fringe of the galaxy. Assigned to support Lord Castus Tharr and the general Crusade effort in the region, the company was unaware of their legion’s corruption.


History

Before, but particularly after the legion’s campaign against the Interex, the strain of managing the Great Crusade became apparent. As the Imperium grew and the Crusade fractured into hundreds of different Expeditionary Fleets, more and more interests competed for Horus’ attention. If it could be helped the Warmaster kept the majority of his astartes in the 63rd Expeditionary Fleet, but like other legions many would be dispatched to plug gaps in the outward expansion, or to reinforce a beleaguered fleet.

When it became apparent that the reinforcements slated for Lord Governor Castus Tharr had been redirected to more central concerns, legion command sent the 51st Company to rendezvous with Tharr at the newly discovered Corabie system. Although the Governor had established an imperial colony in the cluster and linked up with Expeditionary Fleet 1574, he had also confirmed the initial reports: the cluster was highly dangerous and rife with multiple hostile xenos species.

Once the astartes had arrived in the Australis Ultima sector, they would dock at the Mechanicum outpost at Carthago V, supplying for what was sure to be a lengthy deployment. Afterwards the fleet translated into the warp, with the expectation to arrive in the Helix Cluster within 2 solar days. Contact was never re-established. After they failed to translate back to realspace, Sector Command and later the legion presumed the 51st lost. After the failed arrival of the Luna Wolves, the continued requests for aid from other Expeditionary Fleets and the need to continue their own arm of the Crusade, the remote theatre of Australis Ultima was all but forgotten by those in the legion.
