About this Channel

chaplain Grimaldus is a veteran of a score of successful Crusades. Chaplain Grimaldus was raised from his Marshal's Sword Brethren and inducted into the mysteries of the Reclusiam after the Battle of Fire and Blood. Such was his faith and devotion to the Emperor that the Chaplains saw in the young Grimaldus the making of a powerful warrior priest. taking his vows before the shatterd Sword of Dorn aboard the "Eternal Crusader" Grimaldus has since justified the Chaplains' faith, zealously leading the warriors of the Black Templars in battle - suffering many grievous wounds in the thickest fighting, but steadfastly refusing to succumb. After a century of faithful service, Grimaldus was elevated to the rle of Reclusiarch and accompanied High Marshal Helbrecht to the war-torn world of Armageddon. High Marshal Helbrecht charged Grimaldus to lead one of the three Black Templars Crusades that had been dispatched to Armageddon to Hive Helsreach. They were besieged by thousands of Orks, who swarmed the hive from a vast fleet of submersibles launched from the icy Deadlands far to the south. A great horde of Orks attacked the Temple of the Emperor Ascendant, a vast basilica that had stood since the earliest days of colonisation, and was held at bay for nearly two months before they finally penetrated the temple precints, looting and destroying priceless holy relics as they went. The Imperial Guard units and the hive militia fled, but the Black Templars simply refused to yield and Grimaldus bellowed his now famous war cry, "I have dug my grave in this place and I will either triumph or I will die!" Such heroism hardened the hearts of the fleeing defenders and they turned and fell upon the orks. The battle degenerated into bloody melee combat in the heart of the temple,the battle was only ended when the entire Temple collapsed in a maelstorm of rubble and fire. All were feared lost, but a day later the bloody, but unbowed, frm of Grimaldus crawled out from underneath the ruins, carrying the last relics of the Templeand vowing that all would remember the lives that had been lost for this world. Apothecaries who later treated Grimaldus' wounds exclaimed that it was a miracle that he still lived, let alone had the strength to crawl from the rubbles of the destroyed temple.
Upon commencement of the Season of Fire, Grimaldus was given the title "Hero of Helsreach", the greatest honour its inhabitants could grant.
