The Order of the Purple Shroud
There is an Adepta Sororitas convent attached to Saint Vesperia's Basilica on Cetus Major, for she is the patron saint of their order. They wear silver armour with purple robes, and are known as a relatively traditional order; the only sensory pleasure in which they indulge is that of religious paintings, many of which adorn their vehicles. Painstakingly reworking these vehicular murals after combat is seen as a form of worship. They are also known the Order of the Martyr's Shroud.
There is another branch of the order based in Minoris on Cetus Minor

Sisters Astride and Anselma were also involved in the investigation, although they are not part of Adekauda's squad.
