The Order of the Verdant Garden was formed on the planet of Illustroma Majoris VI, in the aftermath of a tremendous conflict against a heretical rebellion. Members of many orders of the Adeptus Sororitas headed to the planet, but the naval ships carrying them were destroyed. After the destruction of the rebels, the Sisters of Battle were at a loss – without naval or astropathic support, there was no way to leave the troubled world. Joining together as a single force, the Adeptus Sororitas formed the order of the Verdant Garden, which maintained peace throughout the Illustroma Majoris system for over a thousand years before the Administratum sent a expeditionary force to check on the planet.
With such a length of tradition and roots on the world, the Ecclesiarchy granted their petition to stay as an independent order … something their founding orders do not necessarily agree with!
