Crusaders are the protectors of the Canoness, their holy duty is to safeguard the lives of their charges. On the field of battle, Crusaders are at the vanguard of any assault alongside their Canoness.

Crusaders fight with crusader shields which utilise small power field generators, enshrouding each shield within a protective bubble which can deflect even the most potent of enemy attacks with ease. Crusader shields are more then just protective devices however, for they serve as a badge of office for the Crusaders.

Each Crusader also often carry bolters, the symbolic weapon of the Adepta Sororitas and Astartes, but they are also given leave to carry the bolt pistols and chainswords into battle, as befitting their dual roles of protector and executioner.

Protector Shield: Protector Shields are small, handheld shields that the Crusaders use to ward off the blows of the enemy.
