is the Red Scorpions
Ancient-Invigilus: guardian of purity and bearer of the Vexilla Imperialis, the standard that the High Lords of Terra
awarded to the Scorpions for their successful pursuit of the Badab
campaign against Lugft Huron
. Due to it's impressive pedigree, the banner immediately became one of the Chapter's most precious relics. It acts as a galvanising force for the Red Scorpions, making them fight on even in the direst of circumstances.
The standard itself was given to Karagon by Carab Culln for the badass feat of defeating a Genestealer Patriarch, then throwing it from the peak of it's hive city spire-top lair. Karagon was raised to his position of Ancient-Invigilus when Culln fell against the Tyranids, a rank that gives him the authority to scrutinise the commands of the Lord-Regent, but is also meant to hold his confidence and ensure he retains his humility in his position of power.
