The Spinward Arm Crusade
Drusus was a Lord General Militant of the Imperial Guard. Initially a subordinate to Lord Militant Golgenna Angevin in the Angevin Crusade, after the mental breakdown of Angevin, Drusus would take de facto command of the waning crusade. Gaining the favor of the High Lords of Terra, rival generals attempted to kill the rising star with assassins. Though supposedly slain, Drusus was seemingly resurrected as a Living Saint, leading many to believe that he held the Emperor’s favor. As a result, Drusus was given full formal command of the Crusade and led a massive offensive deep into the Spinward Arm. The next decade was spent pacifying worlds and bringing them into the Imperium, before Drusus fell in battle on an unnamed planet in the closing days of the Crusade.
Drusus is hailed as a Saint by the Imperium, especially by the Imperial Guard units, given his role as a soldier and general. The Crusade to retake the Spinward Arm is dedicated to his name, and the Crusade reverently protects and retakes shrines and places important to Saint Drusus as they begin to cut a path into The Spinward Arm
