Celeri Accipter (Swift Hawk)
Celeri Accipter is one of War Maniple Laeta Ferro's four Reaver Titans. Princeps Alphonse Jakobus who commands the titan is one of oldest of the princeps of Legio Atarus, having witnessed, as a child, the arrival of the Great Crusade while the still on Forgeworld of Phaeton. The Celeri Accipter was a truly ancient god-engine, and had fought against the horrors of Old Night on Phaeton. When the dispute with Mars led to part of the forgeworld's strength being sent away, both Jakobus and Celeri Accipter made the trek to Atar-Median and formed the core of Legio Atarus.
When the Warmaster Horus betrayed the dream of mankind and turned against the Emperor, few were as embittered as Alphonse Jakobus. He had been born with the fear of Old Night all around but had seen first-hand the hope and promise brought with the Great Crusade. The betrayal of that dream had ignited a deep hatred of the traitors within his ancient heart.
Due to his age, Princeps Jakobus, is one of the only princeps of the Legio Atarus to be contained in an amniotic tank instead of hard-plugged into the MIU. As the fires of the Horus Heresy burn, the Celeri Accipter became one to the most efficient titan killer of War Maniple Laeta Ferro, partly because of Princeps Jakobus' controlled anger and partly because of Celeri Accipter's load out of two Laser Blasters and Apocalypse Missiles.
