Aboard the Phalanx, the veteran 1st company stands at attention in ceremonial ranks waiting to recieve their guest. Captain Darnath Lysander exhales with impatience as the Ultramarine Thunderhawk prepares to land and expunge it's, "unnecessary cargo."
"Our tenth company is not to be found lacking in any way, and I don't believe this is necessary," said the first captian.
"Old friend, do not look at this as a slight on our honor, but as a chance to restrengthen our bond with our allies, the Ultramarines. You will accept and guide our tenth company by learning from our guest. Do not mistake that as a request, captain," said Vladimir Pugh, Chapter Master of the Imperial Fists.
As the Thunderhawk screams into the loading dock, not a single heartbeat is misplaced as the ship settles unceremoniously and lowers the ramp. Without pause, the cargo of the thunderhawk disembarks and walkd to the awaiting Honor Guard to present himself.
"Sergeant Torias Telion of the Ultramarines 10th company, reporting for duty as decreed by Chapter Master Marneus Calgar," said Telion.
"Welcome aboard the Phalanx, Sargeant. I am Chapter Master Vlad and this is my first Captain, Darnath Lysander. He will be your reinforcements,..........and protectorate, should you need them. The tenth company awaits your inspection and tutelage," said Vlad!
"With all due respect commander, an Ultramarine can take care of himself," states Telion.
