Adepta Sororitas

From the Warhammer 40000 wiki:

“The Adepta Sororitas, also known as the Sisters of Battle and formerly known as the Daughters of the Emperor, are an all-female division of the Imperial Cult’s ecclesiastical Adepta known as the Ecclesiarchy or, more formally, as the Adeptus Ministorum. The Sisterhood’s Orders Militant serve as the Ecclesiarchy’s fighting arm, mercilessly rooting out corruption and heresy within humanity and every organization of the Adeptus Terra. There is naturally some overlap between the duties of the Sisterhood and the Imperial Inquisition; for this reason, although the Inquisition and the Sisterhood remain entirely separate organisations, the Orders Militant of the Sisterhood also act as the Chamber Militant of the Inquisition’s Ordo Hereticus. The Adepta Sororitas and the Sisters of Battle are commonly regarded as the same organisation, but the latter title technically refers only to the Orders Militant of the Adepta Sororitas, the best-known part of the organization. The Sisterhood serves as the Ministorum’s only official military force because the Decree Passive laid down by the reformist Ecclesiarch Sebastian Thor held that in the wake of the Age of Apostasy of the 36th Millennium, the Ecclesiarchy cannot maintain any men under arms. This was supposed to limit the power of the Ecclesiarchy. However, the Ministorum was able to circumvent this decree by using the all-female military force of the Sisterhood’s Orders Militant.”

Role in the Sabbat Worlds Crusade

Of all the Orders Militant, the most involved in the Sabbat Worlds Crusade are the sisters of the Order of Our Martyred Lady. According to mythology, Saint Sabbat was a member (or perhaps founder) of one of the precursor orders that would become the Order of Our Martyred Lady. As such, in addition to their roles serving the Ordo Hereticus and the Ecclesiarchy, many sisters have been dispatched on fact finding missions to ascertain the truth of these legends and myths about St. Sabbat and her role in the Order’s history.

In the Khan III campaign there are currently 500 Sisters of Battle from the Order attached to the forces of Lord General Bulledin. They are instrumental in organizing the defense of many sites of religious importance. Fifty of these Sisters are currently attached to Inquisitor Fevel Corman of the Ordo Hereticus as both his personal bodyguard and to assist him in keeping an eye on the 63rd Elchingen Hussars for signs of taint and heresy. These Sisters are led by Sister Superior Aideena Sabbatine Marionno, a highly praised member of the Sisters of Battle elite Seraphim jump troops.
