Inquisitor Kurios Felin [Currently held under guard for investigation, suggested that rank be stripped.]
[Illegal Thesis]//[Potential Minor Cult Belief]//[Evidence for Investigation regarding Heretical Crimes]====================================
To my dearest NAME WITHHELD
Praise the Emperor for the struggles he has put me through, for I have been truly enlightened! I have been fortunate to work with the Adeptus Astartes chapter Angels Sanguine. If you are unfamiliar, they happen descendants of the Blood Angels, whose activities have been on the rise recently within the Imperium. Initially I had misgivings of working with them, knowing the stubborness attributed to all of the Adeptus Astartes. Indeed, my misgivings doubled when I held witness to their peculiar traits; even one as battle hardened as I would feel uncomfortable when a Space Marine goes quite mad with past grief.
As I have hinted in my earlier transcriptions, the Angels Sanguine were rather resistant to offering any further explanation, though I rather doubt they could be able to tell me anything that I do not already know, being lost in their ignorant traditions. What I did not tell you however that afterwards I found myself asking why they act as they do, and so I took to reading various tomes during the lengthy travels between star systems. You see, I found it quite facsinating that they should succumb to this perceived genetic illness, and indeed began to suspect there was more to it than just merely a flaw in their body.
What if the catalyst for their insanity is not flesh, but something far greater?
I am certain even one as yourself, too focused on fashionable clothing, are familiar with the ancient stories regarding the event of Horus' defeat. I trust you will guard this secret, as you have others, in that there are some that belief that afterwards a grievous error had occurred, and that it was the body of Horus, and not our beloved and exalted Emperor, that was recovered and placed upon the Golden Throne. A truly laughable heresy, one fully deserving of much derision alongside of fiery purgation.
After all, one should easily determine which was the Emperor and which was that hateful traitor even if facial identity was difficult: One has shiny golden armour, the other is covered in spikes.
However, there is something that has always troubled me, that, again, I must urge you to keep to yourself before I am finished with my works. How is it that our all powerful Emperor could have been so grievously wounded by, yes, one of his greatest, if not his greatest, sons? It would be saying that one could almost be the equal of the Emperor!
The notion that any could almost defeat the Emperor has been a troubling one, though now it no longer does so. For you see, I have determined that there is a hint of truth to the afore-mentioned heresy. A grievous error has occurred.
One can and should conclude that after the Emperor easily dispatched the traitor, his task on our realm has been completed, and so he ascended to the heavens, knowing that he had done enough to ensure humanity's survival, and that it was up to us from that point on to carry out his will.
Thusly, when the scene of that fateful battle was discovered, there was no broken body of the Emperor to carry back to the throne. Who then, sits upon it? Certainly not Horus, I can certainly tell you that. There was, however, a third that bore witness. The third that is now mistakenly believed to be the Emperor. One who is thought to be dead, and yet lives, his lingering torment affecting his decendants.
I can only guess how it came to pass, though I am confident my colleagues will allow me the resources to determine how the events unfolded, and yet it was the broken (and not dead) body of Sanguinius that was discovered and carried back to Holy Terra. Someone had to claim the Golden Throne, to live out constantly in agony as the ultimate sacrifice for the Emperor's will, to serve as an example for what the Emperor expects of us, and to live as a shining beacon for humanity.
So it is that Sanguinius, the Emperor's most beloved son, was given to us, and even now guides us in these chaotic times. I cannot understand how people can believe that the Emperor would allow himself to be shackled upon Terra, though I am certain that once I bring this truth to light their ignorance will rapidly wash away. They, just like you must be at this very moment, will rejoice, strengthened by the belief that their lord is not on Holy Terra, but in the heavens!
It had been long suspected that Inquisitor Kurios Felin's resolve was not the same as it had been when he attained the title of Inquisitor, and this letter offered by our operative (who shall be unnamed, for she has been quite adept at uncovering treason within our own ranks) neatly sums up his state of mind when we finally saw fit to relieve him of his duty.
We doubt this thesis has affected too many citizens (though Inquitor Felin, when detained, was raving about becoming a missionary to spread, and I quote, "the truth"), and while there is a danger that we may have yet another minor cult springing up, I do not foresee that this should prove to be anything more than a negligible nuisance, as compared to more current issues being dealt with. Indeed, this insane rambling is, if you would pardon my high gothic, absurdus extremi, and I have not seen anything more ridiculous since the forum over whether the Emperor was a vegetable or a fruit.

Ha! Nice work, Pixie!
As well as being rather amusing, you've now got me wondering if there could be a grain of truth to this.
And as to whether the Emperor is a Fruit or a Vegetable... Would you say he'd go better with ice-cream?
So Sanguinius is sealing the hole in the warp/gate to the webway on Terra? So Sanguinius is communicating to the Saints of Humanity?
If so, then one is almost assuming that Sanguinius is the Emperor. Thoughts of pure heresy.
Unless you are suggesting that when the Almighty Emperor "ascended to the heavens" he entered a alternat dimension through which he constantly aids humanity as the divine ruler and uses Sanguinius one might say "as a prophet"?
Interesting. (yet still blasphemous and thou shalt be purged with holy fire to cure your sin).
@deadstar: hes a vegetable, grows underground and then rises out.
What about Sanguinius`s broken body that they found, alongside that of the Emperor's? And the fact that one had giant wings, while one didn't?
Sanguinius' body was laid to rest on Baal, you'd think the Blood Angels would notice that their beloved Primarch looks different, doesn't have wings and is wearing the wrong armour...
Nice theory though, lol
Also, Horus destroyed Sanguinius' warp presence, effectively he tore his soul apart in the most cruel and agonizing way possible.. it was the psychic shock of that act which lead to the black rage surfacing in the blood angels (not a very common phonomena, the fists didn't get it just from Rogal Dorn dying, and the Ultramarines didn't get it from Dorn being greviously injured). You don't live through having your soul ripped apart..
Not to mention, the Emperor lived through his fight with Horus long enough to transmit the designs for the golden throne to Rogal Dorn.. You'd think Rogal would have noticed if his dying dad had suddenly grown wings and looked completely different.
3 out of 10 excommunicated Inquisitors say that the Emperor is more of the steak and more steak type of person than some girly boy that likes dessert. It's the harsh far distant future!Would you say he'd go better with ice-cream?Turns out that it isn't actually sealed, but since no one really pays attention to it, rather like that unlocked back door in a rural house...So Sanguinius is sealing the hole in the warp/gate to the webway on Terra? So Sanguinius is communicating to the Saints of Humanity?
And no, the Saints actually are just crazy. Except the non-crazy ones.Well, that is what our heretical inquisitor is sort of suggesting... at least until he gets his frontal lobe removed. And a bit off the sides as well.Unless you are suggesting that when the Almighty Emperor "ascended to the heavens" he entered a alternat dimension through which he constantly aids humanity as the divine ruler and uses Sanguinius one might say "as a prophet"?It really was a prettied up Slaanesh demon. And giant novelty scissors still exist in the far distant future, if only to snip off a Primarch's wings... (or tail, in another instance)What about Sanguinius`s broken body that they found, alongside that of the Emperor's? And the fact that one had giant wings, while one didn't?That's what -they- want you to think. Turns out soul ripping allows for rosarius saves.You don't live through having your soul ripped apart..You'd also think that the Dorn family wouldn't be so stubborn and accept the fact that they could use glasses...You'd think Rogal would have noticed if his dying dad had suddenly grown wings and looked completely different.

Interesting idea, but too many ifs, buts and maybes in there.
Having said that the whole Horus/Sanginius/Emperor mash up is a bit vague. I am one of those that thinks the Emperor stabbed Sanginius in the back to make the Blood Angels go mental and break the Siege of Terra. Him being put on the throne for 10k years was part of the grand plan after all...
