Grading[ edit ] Imperial scholars grade a psyker's power using the Greek alphabet , with the most powerful psykers being Alphas.
Following them in order of decreasing power are Betas, Gammas, Deltas, and so forth. The median grade for measuring psychic abilities is at Rho and Pi, where no psychic talent is present; the common human is represented by these grades and represents most of the Imperium.
Those below Sigma grade are the "negative" end of the scale, and are considered "anti-psychic" and usually referred to as Untouchables, Pariahs, or Blanks. The most powerful psykers, who exceed the grading scale, are considered Alpha-Plus, such as The Emperor of Mankind, while the lowest recorded example is an Omega Minus. Weaponry[ edit ] Psykers are vulnerable to several types of weaponry that have been developed by the Imperium, Necrons and other races to counter psykers.
The Imperium uses the Culexus Assassin and their "psykout" weapons, including: psycannon and warp swords. One of their rare and powerful weapons is the Crucible of Malediction, which uses a tormented psyker soul that, when released, can drive psykers insane on the battlefield. Some are able to consciously focus their power. It is possible for an Untouchable's power to be overwhelmed by a sufficiently strong psychic force.
In the Warhammer 40, novelizations, Alizabeth Bequin, an associate of Inquisitor Eisenhorn , was psychically overwhelmed by the warp sentience of an ancient Titan she was attempting to disable. Wystan Frauka, an untouchable in the service of Inquisitor Ravenor, was also made "touchable" due to unusual psychic activity. The Imperium of Man[ edit ] The Imperium regards psykers as a commodity and a necessary evil.
Those who are deemed corrupt or uncontrollable are summarily destroyed, but those who display both power and control are trained to become servants of the state.
Imperial Guard Regiments and Space Marine chapters employ psykers in combat. Astropaths provide faster-than-light psychic communication. Navigators are needed to pilot starships through Warp space.
Psykers are also employed as Inquisitors. A select few who are exceptional are recruited to join the elite Space Marine chapter known as the Grey Knights. Psykers who are too weak to fulfill any of the aforementioned roles are sacrificed to the Emperor, who feeds on their souls and uses this energy to project a psychic beacon, the Astronomican, through the Warp. Imperium starships use this beacon to travel through the Warp, which otherwise has no fixed reference points for navigation.
Thousands of psykers die daily in this fashion. Because the Astronomican is critical to the Imperium's infrastructure, this is seen as a small price to pay. Ordinary humans fear and despise psykers because they are prone to insanity and daemonic possession.
Most desire to lynch witches, and are largely unaware of the useful roles many serve in the Imperium. Astropaths[ edit ] Astropaths are long-range telepaths who are trained to transmit and receive messages across interstellar space.
They are found on nearly every Imperial ship and world. Because the transmission range of individual astropaths is relatively limited, they often relay messages through an astropathic chain, or form conclaves of astropaths called "choirs" to boost their range. To become an astropath, a candidate psyker is brought before the Emperor to be "soul-bound"—that is, the psyker's mind is reshaped by the Emperor to enhance his or her telepathic potential and to gird against predation by Warp entities.
The process is sometimes fatal, and often destroys the psyker's other senses such as sight. Because of the psychic, mental, and physical strain involved in transmission, astropaths have short lifespans.
Navigators[ edit ] Navigators are a breed of sanctioned human mutants who possess a third eye in the middle of their foreheads that allows them to look directly upon the Warp and perceive the Astronomican, a psychic beacon broadcast by the Emperor of Mankind across the Warp. Without a Navigator, interstellar travel is much slower and more dangerous. Only the coupling of two Navigators can produce a Navigator child, so the Navigators form an endogamous caste.
The Navigator Houses are very wealthy and powerful entities, boasting even a representative on the High Lords of Terra. They are among the few mutants to enjoy high status in an otherwise very intolerant society. Imperial Guard[ edit ] The Imperial Guard employs sanctioned psykers in combat roles. Psykers can advise an officer and guide their commands. They protect the officer from psychic attack, and can fire lightning bolts from their hands.
Imperial Guard psykers often have less training than those employed with the Space Marines, and are more vulnerable to the Warp's perils. They are often accompanied by commissars, who swiftly execute any psykers who endanger its forces, alongside the former's duty of brutally enforcing discipline in the Imperial Guard. Unlike the psykers who are gathered from the Inquisition or the Adeptus Astra Telepathica, candidates are recruited and trained directly from the Chapter's recruiting worlds.
They must exhibit both great power and strength of will in addition to the usual physical requirements for the common Space Marine. Librarians are responsible for maintaining the records of their Chapter.
They can use their talents to filter out dangerous mutant psykers from the Imperium's recruits. With better equipment such as Aegis hood circuitry, superior willpower, protection and training, along with Space Marine enhancements, Librarians are much less susceptible to the perils of the Warp than their Imperial Guard counterparts. On the battlefield, they are fearsome opponents that can unleash devastating psychic powers and augment their own physical prowess.
