40K: Dead Cabal of Spite
Known as the “Daemon Hunters”, or the Order of the Hammer, the Ordo Malleus are sworn to defend the very soul of Mankind, concentrating on the defeat of those enemies of Humanity that dwell in the warp; the so-called “enemy beyond.” They primarily concern themselves with destroying Daemons and other servants of Chaos. They have pledged their every waking hour to the discovery and scourging of such creatures, wherever they can be found. Members of the Ordo Malleus are often battle-hardened warriors, for Daemons cannot be cast out through the subtleties of espionage or trickery – only the blessed blade and the purified flame will serve. However, knowledge is their chief weapon. Agents of the Ordo Malleus are scholars of daemonic lore and know how to shackle and bind Warpspawn. Ordo Malleus is silent on their military forces but rumours abound as to incredibly secretive Space Marine operations.
