The Triumph of Saint Katherine, a glorious funerary procession, carries the radiant essence of the Emperor wherever it marches. As it traverses the galaxy, the enemies of faith are scattered, and the Sisters of Battle are infused with the fervent conviction of their martyred Matriarch, Katherine. But this grand spectacle of devotion is not limited to Saint Katherine alone; it also pays homage to all six revered Matriarchs, whose spirits are carried alongside her to the front lines.
Accompanying the sacred bier that holds the skeletal remains of Saint Katherine in her revered reliquary armor are six chosen members of the Orders Pronatus. Each of these esteemed representatives of the Adepta Sororitas embodies one of the canonized Matriarchs from the six original Orders, symbolizing their timeless presence and influence:
- Saint Katherine, Order of Our Martyred Lady (very front): Wielding the Martyr’s sword and the Praesidium Protectiva, this sister embodies the Spirit of Saint Katherine. The Praesidium Protectiva was once Saint Katherine’s own shield and contains a shard of the Emperor’s armour. As such, it helps protect the processional, as well as nearby Sisters.
- Saint Dominica, Order of the Ebon Chalice (front left): Bearing a simulacrum of the Ebon Chalice, a black goblet imbued with ever-burning flame, this sister embodies the Spirit of Saint Dominica.
- Saint Mina, Order of the Bloody Rose (back left): This sister carries the Petals of the Bloody Rose, ritually scattered to symbolise the blood of the enemy spilt by the Red Saint before being martyred.
- Saint Silvana, Order of the Argent Shroud (very back): A simulacrum of the Argent Shroud is mounted on a banner atop her backpack. This sister follows at the back of the procession giving sermons and reading aloud the deeds of Saint Silvana, while the shroud above her depicts the skeletal remains of the Saint Silvana.
- Saint Lucia, Order of the Valorous Heart (back right): Holding aloft the Icon of the Valorous Heart, this pulsing icon brings strength to the warriors of the Imperium who hear its beat.
- Saint Arabella, Order of the Sacred Rose (front right): Swinging the Censer of the Sacred Rose in their left hand, the censer burns with an eternal flame, imbuing nearby Sisters with the strength to spread the Emperor’s truth with even greater zeal.
