“The Storm Trooper regiments and the Commissariat are all raised under the care of drill abbots of the Schola Progenium. Progena are amongst the truest servants of the Imperium you are ever likely to encounter, and Progena of a militant inclination are soldiers of unwavering loyalty and discipline, raised to defend the Emperor’s realm from a young age. While their numbers are few and in high demand, the orphans of the Schola Progenium make for outstanding Guardsmen.”
–Extract from the Tactica Imperialis
The creations of the Schola Progenium are trained to be of unyielding will, of decisive action, and of swift mind. Service to the Imperium is an expectation, one their lives have been directed towards for the years of their tutelage. The harsh mental and physical discipline of the Schola Progenium produces fine officers and soldiers, none finer than the Storm Trooper regiment, which recruit only from the finest Schola Progenium graduates.
The Schola Progenia are academies run by Missionaries of the Ecclesiarchy. These schools teach and train orphans of Imperial officials who have given their lives in the service of the Emperor of Mankind. These orphans are indoctrinated into the Imperial Cult from an early age, and soon learn to regard the Emperor as their spiritual father.
Graduates of the Schola are known as Progena, and because of the loyalty their training has instilled in them, they are frequently sent for further training and service within other Imperial organisations. Progena are often earmarked for roles that call for the most rigorous dedication to the Imperium, these roles can include, Tempestus Scions, Commissars of the Imperial Guard, officers of the Imperial Navy, Imperial Assassins and even budding Inquisitors. Female Progena often join one of the Orders of the Adepta Sororitas while males often join the ranks of the Tempestus Scions.
The Schola organization itself is overseen by a Commandant, who is one of the lesser members of the Senatorum Imperialis.
