Rejected, but not forgotten

This article (Sapper), is about a unit, building or other aspect that has been cut or changed significantly in the game or lore.

Still, lore is a terrible thing to waste, so instead of deleting it, Team Paradox decided to preserve it for all to see. It is, of course, not canon, and not applicable for the game.

The Fanatics are an important (though unwanted) part of the Order's army. One cannot deny the advantage of having someone completely and utterly devoted to one's cause, without question. However, some Fanatics have taken their devotion to wild extremes. These bomb-toting disciples, known in the ranks as Sappers, skirt death daily with their copious use of explosives, and think nothing of hurling themselves and every bomb they own in the enemy's direction, destroying everything in the area in a brilliant explosion.

The more self-conscious Sappers have survived to be feared in the eyes of their enemies. The elite among the Sappers have planted thousands of explosives, seen the enemy destroyed hundreds of times. If anything, these wearying experiences make them "more" ready to press the big red button on a trigger to sacrifice themselves in a massive blast that detonates all of the explosives on their bodies. In one very suppressed story, a Talon vicar found a note outside one Sapper's door, apparently a prayer for forgiveness. There was nothing inside the room but ash and scorch marks.

Behind the Scenes Edit

Sappers were "Pioneers" in Medieval Warfare using mining to destablising Fortresses in Sieges.
