Cult of the Children and the Warband of the 17th Traitor Guard

Cult of the Children The Cult of the Children was a religious group on Darvon VI, founded by a former Assistant Navigator, Sirval. It was a cloak for a Genestealer Cult which later brought the planet under its control. Sirval had been infected by a Genestealer after which he retired from space travel, settling on Darvon VI marrying and having many children. The tenets of the cult promoted modesty and hard work, but also complete seclusion from the rest of society, and forbid its followers from travelling off planet. As much of the population were members of the cult, the planet couldn't fulfil its obligation of raising regiments for the Imperial Guard. When a recruiting force descended on the cult's isolated settlements, the Cult finally began its uprising, eventually bringing the entire planet under its control with help for an unlikely ally.

Generations Each hybrid generation possesses a somewhat specific anatomy. By infecting a victim with its genetic material, a Genestealer passes on some of its physical characteristics to the victim's first offspring. In the first generation, this gives rise to a Hybrid with a number of Genestealer traits. Through successive generations of Hybrids these traits become less extreme, until in the fourth generation the Hybrids can pass as normal Humans. First generation: The first generation Hybrids are born to human (or otherwise) parents, one of which has been infected. Of all the generations they resemble Genestealers most closely. They have either three or four arms. Second generation: Second generation hybrids always possess three arms, one of which ends in the genestealer claw.
