Amongst the choirs of the 9th, the Exousiai were a caste of Assault Marines known to exemplify the high intensity warfare practiced throughout the legion. Squad Arcellus (thus Exousiai Arcellus) has been the main stay veteran assault company of the 133rd expedition fleet, having taken part in the purgation campaign of the Nictatine Doctorate and ruination of the Empire of Ludd.
The Heresy war took a heavy toll on the Exousiai, equipped as they were for xenos and light infantry purgation protocols. They found themselves woefully ill equipped to tackle Legion forces and suffered a high attrition rate throughout the rebellion. Archive photographs shows us varied range of armour marks throughout Exousiai Arcellus with battlefield scouring of the dead being a common practice to replace damaged equipment.
