The Adeptus Custodes, more commonly known as Custodians are the guardians of the Imperial Palace and the Golden Throne. More than this they are the personal bodyguard to the Emperor himself. Each Custodian is a unique work of art, the product of genetic lore collected over many lifetimes, making their physical build and martial prowess vastly superior to that of a standard Space Marine. Created using far more advanced gene-craft than that used for the Adeptus Astartes it is whispered that the Custodian's genetic template was forged from the Emperor's flesh as the Adeptus Astartes' was from that of the Primarchs. It is the Adeptus Custodes that decide not only who may enter the throne room of the Emperor but when they may enter. Such is their authority in this matter that Space Marines and Inquisitors must kneel before them.

The Sisters of Silence, also known as the Silent Sisterhood, were the anti-psychic militant arm of the Adeptus Astra Telepathica during the Great Crusade, and were internally referred to as the organization's Departmento Investigates. Its ranks consisted entirely of Blanks, an exceedingly rare type of human mutant that possesses no presence in the Warp which can disrupt psychic phenomena in their vicinity and renders them immune to psychic powers. The Sisters of Silence, while nominally under the control of the Astra Telepathica, quickly became the Emperor personal force. Along with the Custodes the Sisters of Silence are the only military force of the Imperium permitted to walk freely within the inner Imperial Palace.
