History

The Encounter at Pilgim’s Pause was a unexpected event where an Imperial fleet accidently ran into a rebel force fleeing from 47 Kapella. Outnumbered the Imperial fleet was quickly assaulted by the desperate force of rebels. Though casualties were high the Imperial fleet managed victory in no small part by the actions of Templar Secundus Aetius, whose bold assault took out the main enemy vessel. Assigned to a boarding party with a number of Imperial guardsmen, he managed to fight his way to the bridge and take out the command staff and disable the vessel. For his actions he was awarded the rank of Templar Primus, and also attracted the interest of the Ordo Xenos.
