"Battle Chapters of Aurelia Segmentum still pass on the legend of Brother Claus The Living Saint. Once upon a time, Imperial colonists of the planet Laplandia found themselves in a double predicament, facing both a Space Orkz' invasion and the dawn of a new ice age. The bloody siege claimed thousands of lives, but, with their bomb shelters heavily damaged and their supply lines cut off, even more were lost to the vicious snowstorms and freezing temperatures. But, even in these dark times, by the Emperor's will came a bearer of hope. 'Twas Brother Claus, aided by his loyal retinue of Reindeer-class Combat Servitors, who had heeded the distress call of the ruined world. Shot down by Orcish fighters while approaching Laplandia's capital city, he crash-landed behind enemy lines and then proceeded to hack his way through the Xenos horde, his servants not only providing fire support, but carrying toys for the colonists' children and ammo for the Imperial Guard defenders on their very backs. They succeeded in their daring venture, and their example inspired Laplandia's population to fight back the alien scum with such ferocity that after a month-lenght counterattack the Xenos were driven out. Since then, Laplandia has been rebuilt, its surface dotted by massive factories and assembly plants. From there, Brother Claus launches his new campaigns to this very day, and it is said that wherever the Imperium of Man is gravely threatened and its citizens suffer, The Living Saint comes to provide aid whether with his righteous battlerage or orbital munition drops."
