The vessel is immeasurably ancient. It was built in the shipyards orbiting a world of proud and fearsome warriors. Though the citizens adhered to the Imperial creed and paid their tithes, secret cabals on the planet's surface warshipped Khorne, the Lord of Rage. At the appointed hour, they rose up and tried to overthrow their loyalist masters. They failed. They were defeated in a long, bloody war and all, to a man, perished in flames. But the fickle whims of the Warp decreed that their vengeful spirits would forever haunt the vessel Ragnarok, whose hull was being constructed in the docks above the planet's surface. To this day, Ragnarok and all aboard it cry, "Vengeance! Death! Blood for the Blood God!"
