Celestial Lions

The Celestial Lions is a Loyalist Successor Chapter of the stoic Imperial Fists, the Celestial Lions became a part of a triumvirate of Space Marine Chapters which included the Emperor's Spears and the now-extinct Star Scorpions, as a part of the Adeptus Vaelarii, better known as the "Sentinels of the Veil." These three Chapters were charged with the sacred duty to stand sentinel over the scattered worlds of the region of space known as Elara's Veil. Since its inception, the Chapter has had a long and glorious history, stretching back over 4,000 Terran years. After the birth of the Great Rift in the Era Indomitus, the Chapter became involved alongside the Emperor's Spears with defending the Veil from an assault by a great Chaos warhost called the Exilarchy.
