The fierce female warriors known as Mourning Wolves originate from all walks of Imperial life. School teachers, mothers, accountants, lawyers, and just about every other profession or previous vocation one can imagine. They all have one thing in common though; each and every one has lost someone very dear to them to war with the other megacorporations or the Dark Legion. The vast majority of them are war widows, but some have lost their father, a sibling or child and each has vowed to exact revenge on those responsible. Each woman wears very little in the way of armour or mail protection, opting for a simple form-fitting garment of ballistic-resistant leather, allowing them a greater range of movement and flexibility, which they use as a near perfect alternative to the cumbersome armour of the male wolves. The Mourning Wolves seem to be a superstitious bunch, often consulting the Pathfinders as to their future and carrying many tokens, amulets and talismans. In truth, such keepsakes are kept for melancholy, to remind themselves of those they have lost, empowering them to focus their furore against those that have wronged them. They consult the Pathfinders with a hope that the near-seers will predict their journey’s end and their reunion with their lost. Preparation for war is a ritualistic process, involving bathing, body painting and marking themselves with elaborate druidic spirals and animals in woad, ensuring they look their best for when they meet their love. They paint their faces in a ghostly white death
mask to prepare their souls for the journey to the other side. Each pack is led by a Matron, who not only guides the women in battle, but also serves as their spiritual advisor, helping the younger Wolves cope with the loss that has brought them to the order. Many of the Matrons form close bonds with their pack, seeing them as surrogate sisters or daughters. It is they that hold the pack together, averting it from the self-destructive spiral it would otherwise inevitably enter. The Matron is responsible for guiding the ladies down their final path when the time comes and ensuring their talismans and carved names are added to the walls of the Cave of the Mother Wolf on Ganymede. In the unusual situation where the entire pack, matron included, make their final journey together, the she wolf mother superior herself will bless the final journey and engrave the cave. In battle, the white faced Mourning Wolves howl as they charge their foes, seemingly heedless of danger or death. Many do not fear their end, choosing instead to stare it in the face, knowing that if they should perish, they will once again be embraced by their lost love. They carry a pair of signature weapons which they use to lethal effect as they spin, whirl and misstep their foe; working as tornados of destruction to obliterate any who cross their path. The first of their characteristic weapons, the Tangle Chain, a set of weighted barbed links made of hardened steel. The Mourning Wolves use them to whip, distract, unbalance and entangle their opponents before enacting the deathblow with their second weapon, the trident Claws of the Wolf, which is used to slash open their enemy’s neck or bowels and leave them to bleed out.
