The original Mordian 7th Regiment, D Company

The Mordian 7th Regiment has a dubious history. They were originally raised from the members of a hive gang known as the Night Rippers that participated in an uprising on Island City Two on Mordia. The Night Rippers sized control of the whole city and utilized the starport in an attempt to blockade the planet in exchange for cash and equipment. They were however viciously suppressed by the Imperial Army and it was decided that the gangers fighting skills would be put to better use fighting the foes of the Imperium. Only the leaders of the uprising were executed - Commander Varren (the planetary governor) chose to enact the ritual deaths using one of the Night Rippers own ceremonial serrated swords. The gang's traditional badge therefore took on new meaning as the symbol of their entry into Imperial service.
