  2. Gene-seed: Blood Angel Lineage – Confirmed Founding: 3rd Founding (appx. 001.M32) Home World: Sanctum Prime (Postryke System, Gothic Sector, Segmentum Obscurus, Imperium Nihilus) Fortress Monastery: Sanctuary of the Iron Halo Colours: Black (Primary), Blue (Secondary), Steel (Trim) Symbol: Steel Wings Chapter Master: Lord Arcturus Voss Battle Cry: “On Iron Wings, We rise!” Origins The Iron Seraphim is a renowned Space Marine Chapter that originated during the Third Founding, a period of expansion for the Adeptus Astartes. Created as a successor chapter to the illustrious Blood Angels, they inherit the noble lineage and genetic legacy of their Primarch, Sanguinius. In the aftermath of the Horus Heresy, the Imperium sought to replenish its ranks and create new chapters to defend against the manifold threats facing humanity. The Iron Seraphim were among the chapters forged during this time, tasked with upholding the honor and noble traditions of their Blood Angels forebears. Creation and Gene-seed The Iron Seraphim were created using the gene-seed of the Blood Angels, instilling them with the strengths, abilities, and genetic quirks of their Primarch. They bear the burden of the Red Thirst, a genetic flaw that causes a heightened thirst for blood in battle. However, through rigorous training and strict discipline, and their large chaplaincy that guides their number, the Iron Seraphim have learned to channel this savage impulse into controlled aggression, ensuring they do not succumb to the dreaded Black Rage, save for but a handful of their number. Combat Doctrine The Iron Seraphim Space Marine Chapter, as a successor of the Blood Angels, follows a combat doctrine that combines their love for close combat and melee prowess with a strategic focus on maintaining superior firepower throughout all ranges. This doctrine allows them to excel in various combat scenarios, ensuring they are formidable opponents in any battlefield. The Iron Seraphim prioritize the preservation of their martial traditions and the relentless pursuit of perfection in combat. Their emphasis on close combat and melee engagements stems from their Blood Angels heritage and the inherent thirst for battle that runs in their gene-seed. They relish the intensity of hand-to-hand combat, displaying exceptional skill and ferocity when engaging enemies up close. However, the Iron Seraphim understand that a balanced approach is crucial for achieving victory in the complex and diverse battles of the far future. They recognize that relying solely on close combat can leave them vulnerable to enemy firepower and long-range attacks. Therefore, they have developed a combat doctrine that ensures they maintain a strong presence in the mid-field and long-range engagements as well. To achieve this, the Iron Seraphim prioritize the acquisition and deployment of superior firepower. They place great importance on the effective use of heavy weapons, artillery, and specialized support units within their ranks. This allows them to unleash devastating barrages of firepower upon their enemies, weakening their defenses and thinning their ranks before closing in for the kill. The chapter maintains a formidable arsenal, ranging from heavy bolters and missile launchers to plasma weapons and lascannons. They are skilled in the use of heavy weapons platforms and armored vehicles, employing them to dominate the battlefield and establish fire superiority. While the Iron Seraphim excel in close combat, they are also proficient in mid-field engagements. They utilize squads armed with versatile weapons such as bolt rifles and plasma guns, enabling them to engage enemies at medium range while maintaining mobility and flexibility. Long-range engagements are not neglected either. The Iron Seraphim possess squads of adept marksmen armed with sniper rifles and specialized anti-vehicle weaponry. These units provide crucial fire support from a distance, picking off high-value targets and neutralizing enemy armor or fortified positions. Overall, the combat doctrine of the Iron Seraphim Space Marine Chapter revolves around the principle that superior firepower is the key to victory. By combining their close combat expertise with a diverse and potent arsenal, they strike a balance between melee prowess and ranged firepower. This approach allows them to adapt to various battlefield conditions and emerge triumphant in their pursuit of victory. Chapter Culture The Iron Seraphim Space Marine Chapter possesses a unique culture that sets them apart from other chapters, emphasizing the importance of their large chaplaincy, regular interaction with humans, artistic pursuits, and a controlled approach to satisfying their blood needs. The Iron Seraphim place great significance on their chaplaincy, believing it to be the key to keeping the numbers of those afflicted by the Black Rage to a minimum. The chaplains hold a revered position within the chapter, serving as spiritual guides, mentors, and guardians of the chapter's traditions and beliefs. They play a crucial role in providing counsel, maintaining the mental and emotional stability of the battle-brothers, and ensuring they stay true to their purpose and remain disciplined in combat. In an effort to stay connected with their humanity and understand what they fight for, the Iron Seraphim members engage in a practice of spending time among the humans on Sanctum Prime, their home world. This periodic interaction allows them to witness the lives of ordinary people, appreciate their struggles, and reinforce their commitment to protecting humanity. It serves as a reminder of the fragile nature of human existence and the importance of their sworn duty as Space Marines. To combat the Red Thirst, a flaw inherited from their Blood Angels lineage, the members of the Iron Seraphim dedicate much of their free time to artistic pursuits. They engage in various forms of expression such as painting, sculpture, music, and literature. These creative outlets provide a means of channeling their emotions, helping to stave off the consuming thirst for blood and maintaining a sense of inner balance. While the Iron Seraphim strive to control their bloodlust, they acknowledge the need to satiate it to some extent. They have established a unique practice of willingly accepting blood donations from local communities. This mutually beneficial arrangement allows the chapter to obtain the sustenance they require while forging strong bonds with the people they protect. These blood donations are normally concealed to be blood drives to screen the local population to check for disease and illness, and while to an extent, this is true, the exact nature is hidden, for The Red Thirst must remain hidden from the knowledge of the greater Imperium. Additionally, they partake in the consumption of a special blood wine known as Karesh, which is carefully crafted and prepared by the chapter's apothecaries. Karesh serves as a ceremonial drink, enjoyed during rituals and gatherings, symbolizing the connection between the Iron Seraphim and their bloodline. These cultural practices and customs of the Iron Seraphim contribute to the chapter's identity, ensuring that they remain grounded in their purpose and strive to maintain their humanity while embracing their transhuman nature. By emphasizing their chaplaincy, interacting with humans, pursuing the arts, and managing their blood needs with control and reverence, the Iron Seraphim seek to forge a unique path in their journey as Space Marines. Chapter Heraldry The heraldry of the Iron Seraphim Space Marine Chapter reflects their unique identity and incorporates elements that symbolize their lineage, combat doctrine, and values. The primary color of the Iron Seraphim's heraldry is black, representing the somber nature of their duty and the darkness they face on the battlefield. It signifies their resilience and determination in the face of adversity, as well as the unwavering strength they possess as defenders of humanity. Accompanying the black is a deep blue, serving as a secondary color in their heraldry. This rich hue represents loyalty, honor, and the steadfastness with which the Iron Seraphim fulfill their oaths. It serves as a reminder of their commitment to their allies and the sacred duty they bear. The use of steel trim highlights the chapter's dedication to superior firepower and the importance they place on their technological prowess. It represents the chapter's relentless pursuit of perfection in combat and their constant drive to improve their armaments and battle strategies. At the center of their heraldry is their symbol, wings of steel. This iconic imagery encapsulates the chapter's name, "Iron Seraphim," and embodies their martial nature. The wings symbolize their devotion to the Emperor and the nobility of their cause. The steel nature signify their mastery of warfare and the ability to bring destruction upon their enemies with precision and strength. Overall, the Iron Seraphim's heraldry combines the elements of darkness, loyalty, technological excellence, and divine symbolism to create a visual representation of their chapter's identity. It serves as a proud emblem that inspires fear in their enemies and instills courage and unity within their own ranks. Becoming an Angel of the Iron Seraphim The process of becoming a Space Marine of the Iron Seraphim Chapter is an arduous and transformative journey, combining rigorous physical trials, unyielding mental challenges, and the infusion of the aspirant's spirit with the potent gene-seed of the Primarch Sanguinius. Aspirants are selected from the population of Sanctum Prime, chosen for their physical prowess, unwavering faith, and potential for psychic abilities. Once identified, they are brought to the Iron Seraphim's Fortress-Monastery, the Sanctuary of the Iron Halo, to undergo the transformative process. The first stage of the initiation is a grueling physical regimen that pushes the aspirants to their limits. Under the watchful eyes of the Iron Seraphim's Apothecaries and Chaplains, the recruits endure intense physical training, endurance tests, combat simulations, and survival challenges in the harsh environments of Sanctum Prime. Only those who display exceptional strength, resilience, and determination can advance to the next phase. The chosen aspirants enter the second stage, which focuses on their mental fortitude and spiritual development. They undergo a series of trials designed to test their resolve, loyalty, and ability to resist the temptations of the Warp. These challenges include exposure to potent psychic energies, meditation rituals, and examinations of faith. The Chaplains play a vital role in guiding the aspirants through these trials, imparting the chapter's values and instilling the indomitable will of the Emperor. Upon successfully completing the mental trials, the aspirants enter the final and most critical stage: the implantation of the gene-seed. The Iron Seraphim possess the bloodline of the Primarch Sanguinius, whose genetic material has been carefully preserved over the millennia. The Apothecaries, known as Sanguinary Priests, perform the intricate surgical procedures to implant the gene-seed organs into the aspirants' bodies. The gene-seed infusion is a sacred and perilous process, where the aspirants' bodies and minds merge with the essence of Sanguinius. The gene-seed grants them enhanced physical attributes, increased resilience, and the potential for psychic abilities. However, the process is not without risks. Some aspirants fail to survive the implantation, their bodies rejecting the gene-seed or succumbing to unforeseen complications. Those who successfully integrate the gene-seed into their physiology enter a period of intense recuperation and stabilization. They are placed under the care of the Sanguinary Priests, who monitor their progress and ensure the proper development of the implanted organs. During this time, the aspirants are isolated from their peers and placed in large sarcophaguses for a year, allowing their bodies to adapt and accept the genetic modifications fully. Once the aspirants have recovered and their bodies have accepted the gene-seed, they undergo a final baptism of blood and fire. They participate in a ritual combat ceremony, facing off against battle-hardened Space Marines of the Iron Seraphim. This trial serves as the aspirants' initiation into the ranks of the chapter, proving their worth and solidifying their place among the Emperor's warriors. Upon successfully completing the baptism, the aspirants are reborn as full-fledged Space Marines of the Iron Seraphim Chapter. They don the sacred black and blue armor of their chapter, taking up arms to defend the Imperium against the forces of chaos and safeguard the Emperor's truth. The process of becoming a Space Marine of the Iron Seraphim is not merely a physical transformation but a journey of inner strength, unwavering faith, and the acceptance of the Primarch's genetic legacy. Each marine forged on Sanctum Prime carries the indomitable spirit of their chapter, their bodies and souls bound together in service to the Emperor and the eternal battle against the eternal battle against the enemies of mankind. As newly inducted Space Marines, the Iron Seraphim warriors begin their lifelong journey of service and sacrifice. They undergo further training and indoctrination, honing their combat skills, mastering the use of their specialized weapons and equipment, and learning the sacred traditions and rituals of the chapter. The Iron Seraphim Chapter places great emphasis on the preservation of knowledge and the pursuit of enlightenment. The newly initiated Space Marines are encouraged to delve into the chapter's vast archives, studying the deeds and wisdom of their predecessors, and familiarizing themselves with the chapter's rich history. The Librarians play a vital role in guiding the neophytes through this process, ensuring that they are well-versed in the lore and teachings of the Iron Seraphim. Throughout their service, the Iron Seraphim Space Marines continue to undergo rigorous training, participating in frequent combat engagements, and facing ever-increasing challenges to further test their mettle. They undertake a variety of missions, ranging from boarding enemy vessels and engaging in close-quarters combat to conducting large-scale planetary assaults and engaging in protracted campaigns against the forces of chaos. The Iron Seraphim Chapter holds a deep reverence for their Primarch, Sanguinius, and the sacrifice he made in defense of humanity. They strive to embody his noble qualities of honor, courage, and selflessness, using their enhanced abilities and unwavering faith to protect the innocent and strike fear into the hearts of their foes. As the Iron Seraphim venture forth from their homeworld of Sanctum Prime, they forge alliances with other Imperial forces, bolstering the ranks of the Astra Militarum and collaborating closely with the Adeptus Mechanicus for the maintenance and enhancement of their advanced war-gear. These alliances serve to strengthen the chapter's influence and enable them to undertake even more daring and critical missions in the name of the Emperor. In battle, the Iron Seraphim exhibit a strategic mindset and tactical flexibility, drawing upon their individual skills and collective synergy. They leverage their psychic potential, employing psychic powers granted by their gene-seed, to manipulate the battlefield, shield their comrades, and unleash devastating attacks upon their enemies. The psychic presence of the Shepherd of Will, the Chief Librarian, resonates throughout their ranks, inspiring awe and bolstering their psychic prowess. The Iron Seraphim Chapter is relentless in its pursuit of the Emperor's justice. They wage war against heretics, daemons, and all who would threaten the sanctity of the Imperium. They fight not only for the survival of mankind but also to preserve the memory and legacy of Sanguinius, the angelic Primarch who exemplified self-sacrifice and nobility. Though their path is fraught with peril and the challenges they face seem insurmountable, the Iron Seraphim remain resolute. They are the vigilant guardians, the champions of the Emperor's will, and the inheritors of Sanguinius's legacy. They will face any foe, overcome any obstacle, and march steadfastly into the darkness, carrying the light of the Emperor with them. In the name of the Iron Seraphim and the Emperor, they will ensure that humanity's flame continues to burn amidst the cold and unforgiving void. Sanctum Prime The homeworld of the Iron Seraphim Chapter is a desolate planet known as Sanctum Prime. Situated within the Gothic Sector of the galactic region known as the Segmentum Obscurus, Sanctum Prime is a harsh and unforgiving world, its surface scarred by ancient cataclysms and beset by perpetual storms that rage across the landscape. Sanctum Prime was once a thriving hub of industrial activity, boasting prosperous cities and advanced technological infrastructure. However, a catastrophic event known as the Maelstrom Cataclysm ravaged the planet, tearing apart its continents and plunging it into an era of darkness and devastation. The cataclysm was a result of warp disturbances that erupted from a nearby Warp rift, causing massive upheavals and unleashing unimaginable destruction. In the aftermath of the cataclysm, Sanctum Prime became a desolate wasteland, with twisted rock formations and shattered remnants of once-grand cities standing as haunting reminders of the planet's former glory. The storms that swept across the barren landscape were imbued with Warp energies, making them dangerous and unpredictable, their howling winds tearing through the ruined structures and eroding the remaining fragments of civilization. The Iron Seraphim Chapter, after their creation in during the Third Founding, discovered Sanctum Prime and recognized its potential as a home for their new chapter. They were drawn to the planet's desolation and saw it as a reflection of their own trials and the turbulent nature of the Imperium's struggle against the forces of chaos. Embracing their new homeworld, the Iron Seraphim set out to reclaim Sanctum Prime from its chaotic grip. The chapter's Techmarines worked tirelessly to repair and reactivate the planet's dormant technological systems, establishing fortified bastions amidst the ruins of the cities. The chapter's presence brought a renewed sense of hope to the desolate planet, and its people rallied under the banner of the Iron Seraphim. Despite the planet's harsh conditions, the Iron Seraphim's gene-seed proved adaptable to the environment. The chapter's Aspirants, chosen from the remnants of Sanctum Prime's population, underwent rigorous trials and augmentations to become Adeptus Astartes. The harshness of the world and the trials they endured forged the Iron Seraphim into formidable warriors, capable of weathering any storm, both literal and metaphorical. Over the centuries, Sanctum Prime became synonymous with the Iron Seraphim Chapter's indomitable spirit and unyielding determination. The chapter's fortress-monastery, known as the Sanctuary of the Iron Halo, stands as a beacon of defiance amidst the desolation, a testament to the resilience of the Iron Seraphim and their unwavering commitment to the Emperor's cause. Sanctum Prime serves as a constant reminder to the Iron Seraphim of the chaos and destruction that can be wrought upon the Imperium. It fuels their zeal to stand as guardians against the encroaching darkness and to protect the Imperium from the horrors of the Warp. The desolate world, with its storm-laden skies and scarred landscapes, has become a part of the chapter's identity, shaping their character and instilling in them an unbreakable resolve. As the Iron Seraphim continue their eternal vigil, Sanctum Prime remains a testament to the enduring spirit of the chapter, a testament to their ability to rise from the ashes of devastation and stand as a bastion of hope in a galaxy consumed by darkness. The Sanctuary of the Iron Halo The Sanctuary of the Iron Halo is the imposing fortress monastery that serves as the bastion and spiritual center of the Iron Seraphim Space Marine Chapter on their homeworld of Sanctum Prime. Perched upon a strategic vantage point amidst rugged terrain, the fortress embodies the strength, resilience, and unwavering dedication of the chapter. Exterior: The Sanctuary of the Iron Halo stands as a massive structure, built with a blend of adamantium and fortified ceramite. Its architecture combines the aesthetics of the Gothic style with sleek, angular lines, reflecting the martial nature of the Iron Seraphim. The fortress rises high into the sky, its towering spires piercing the heavens. The outer walls of the fortress are adorned with intricate murals depicting heroic battles fought by the chapter throughout its history, showcasing their valor and unwavering resolve. Gargoyles and sculpted angels with steel wings flank the entrances, serving as both decorative elements and watchful guardians. Interior: The interior of the fortress is a labyrinthine complex, housing a wide array of facilities and areas crucial to the chapter's operations. The main halls and corridors are lined with ornate banners, bearing the heraldry and symbols of the Iron Seraphim. Stained glass windows depict scenes from their glorious victories and the sacrifices made by the chapter's battle-brothers. Chapels and Meditation Chambers: The Sanctuary of the Iron Halo is renowned for its extensive chaplaincy facilities. It houses numerous chapels and meditation chambers where the chaplains conduct their rituals, deliver sermons, and guide the spiritual development of the chapter's members. These sacred spaces are adorned with intricate mosaics and holy relics, creating an atmosphere of reverence and solemnity. Librarium: The Librarium within the fortress is a vast repository of knowledge and psychic power. It houses an extensive collection of ancient tomes, scrolls, and data-slates, carefully preserved by the chapter's Librarians. The chambers are dimly lit, with ethereal blue illumination emanating from arcane runes etched into the walls. Training and War Rooms: The Sanctuary of the Iron Halo also accommodates training halls and war rooms, where the chapter's battle-brothers hone their combat skills, strategize for upcoming campaigns, and analyze enemy intelligence. These areas are equipped with state-of-the-art simulators, tactical hololith displays, and holo-screens projecting tactical maps. The Vault of Heroes: Deep within the fortress lies the Vault of Heroes, a sacred crypt where the revered relics and the mortal remains of fallen Iron Seraphim heroes are interred. This hallowed chamber serves as a place of reflection and reverence, honoring the sacrifices made by those who have given their lives for the chapter's cause. The Watchtower: The highest pinnacle of the Sanctuary of the Iron Halo houses the Watchtower, an observatory and strategic command center. From this vantage point, the Iron Seraphim keep a vigilant eye on their surroundings, scanning the horizon for signs of danger or impending threats to Sanctum Prime. Overall, the Sanctuary of the Iron Halo is a magnificent fortress monastery that combines both functionality and symbolism. It stands as a testament to the unwavering devotion and martial might of the Iron Seraphim, serving as a stronghold from which they launch their campaigns, protect their homeworld, and safeguard the Imperium. The Shame of the Veiled Council Deep within the annals of the Iron Seraphim, a harrowing secret lies interred in the shadows, casting a haunting pallor upon their noble lineage. Ever since their formation as a Blood Angels successor chapter during the tumultuous days of the Third Founding, a disturbing anomaly has plagued the aspirants who undergo the transformation to become Astartes warriors. During the tumultuous period of the Third Founding, as the Iron Seraphim were still carving their path as a successor to the noble Blood Angels, a grave mistake was made. In their relentless pursuit of power and genetic perfection, the chapter's Apothecaries ventured into forbidden territories, experimenting with dark and blasphemous methods of gene-seed manipulation. Driven by a desire to surpass their progenitors, and a desperation to overcome their gene-flaw, they sought to unlock dormant gene-seed potential, believing it would grant them an edge in battle and elevate the chapter's standing among their brethren. Their hubris clouded their judgment, blinding them to the dire consequences their actions could unleash. An insidious corruption has plagued the genetic heritage of the Iron Seraphim. After receiving the revered gene-seed, a dark and unpredictable transformation looms over the aspirants, threatening to turn them into nightmarish, bat-like creatures. While this is a rare occurrence, this mutation is troubling and threatens the Iron Seraphim if any outside their order were to discover it. Aware of the grave implications, a select few within the Iron Seraphim's inner circle formed a secret assembly known as the Veiled Council. This clandestine group, composed of high-ranking officers and the most trusted veterans, took upon themselves the burden of vigilance, ensuring the dark secret remained buried deep within the chapter's history. Bound by their oaths of loyalty to the Emperor and the Imperium, the members of the Veiled Council swore to monitor and suppress any manifestation of the tainted gene-seed, all while searching for a cure or redemption for their fallen brethren. They walk a treacherous path, torn between their duty to protect the Imperium and the heavy guilt of the chapter's dark past. The Iron Seraphim have constructed an elaborate containment system within their fortress-monastery on Sanctum Prime, striving to confine and control these cursed monstrosities. Vast subterranean chambers, fortified with reinforced adamantium, serve as prisons to house these creatures. The Chapter's Librarians employ potent psychic wards and suppressive technologies to subdue their instincts, preventing them from fully embracing their monstrous nature. Despite the Iron Seraphim's meticulous containment efforts, breaches occur on rare occasions. These horrifying occurrences mark the escape of the bat-like nightmares from their confinements, setting them loose upon the unsuspecting human population of Sanctum Prime. In the dead of night, they descend upon isolated villages and settlements, preying upon the terrified inhabitants and sating their insatiable bloodlust. The true nature of these creatures remains a perplexing enigma. Some suspect that fragments of their humanity might linger, buried deep within their twisted forms, tormented by the monstrous existence they have become. Others fear that the taint is so profound that no trace of their original selves remains, reducing them to mere beasts driven by their base instincts. The Iron Seraphim have been relentless in their pursuit of a solution, seeking to eliminate this dark stain upon their gene-seed and redeem their cursed bloodline. Yet, their efforts have remained in vain, leading to a growing sense of despair and desperation within their ranks. The fear of discovery by the Imperium and the Inquisition looms heavily, threatening not only the reputation of the Chapter but also their very survival. Thus, the Iron Seraphim wage an unspoken battle on two fronts: the one against their own tainted gene-seed, and the other against the creatures born from it. They endure the weight of this dark secret, striving to safeguard Sanctum Prime while struggling to comprehend the mysteries of their twisted heritage, uncertain if redemption or damnation awaits them at the end of their arduous journey. To keep their secrets, memory wipes, forced relocation, and forced conversion into a servitor or silent chapter serf has been implemented. The secret must never be known. The Nocturnus Strain, the mutation that twists souls afflicted by the gene curse within the Iron Seraphim, undergo a grotesque transformation that distorts their once noble visage into terrifying, bat-like monstrosities. These creatures embody the darkest aspects of both man and beast, their forms twisted and corrupted by the genetic anomaly that plagues them. Their once-human bodies elongate and contort, sinew and muscle reshaping into grotesque proportions. Their limbs, once stalwart and strong, morph into elongated appendages resembling leathery wings. These membranous wings, veined with pulsating patterns, span wide, surpassing the boundaries of the aspirants' former frames, granting them an eerie and imposing presence. The Nocturnus Strain reshapes the aspirant’s once-handsome faces contort into nightmarish masks, their jaws elongating into snouts filled with jagged fangs. Their eyes, once brimming with potential and hope, darken and sharpen, taking on an unsettling intensity as they glow with a predatory hunger. Their skin takes on a pallid hue, mottled with patches of sickly gray and deep shades of obsidian, hinting at their descent into monstrous darkness. These creatures possess a heightened agility and grace, reminiscent of their bat-like counterparts. With their monstrous wings, they are capable of swift and silent flight, gliding through the shadows with uncanny precision. Their keen senses, honed by mutation, allow them to navigate the darkness effortlessly, making them formidable hunters in the dead of night. Though their physical prowess is undeniably fearsome, it is their insatiable hunger that defines them. The Nocturnus Mutants, driven by a relentless and predatory instinct, relentlessly stalk their prey. Guided by an unholy thirst for human blood, they emerge from the depths of Sanctum Prime, prowling its streets and alleys, their monstrous screeches reverberating through the night as they descend upon unsuspecting victims. These bat-like horrors embody the twisted fusion of humanity and monstrosity, forever imprisoned between their former aspirations of becoming noble Space Marines and the cruel fate that has befallen them. The Iron Seraphim's greatest shame lies in the unchecked presence of these abominations, as they continue to haunt the shadows of their home world, a constant reminder of the chapter's darkest secret. Notable Allies Forge World: Aegis Prime Aegis Prime is a nearby Forge World that has forged a close alliance with the Iron Seraphim Chapter. Situated in the same sector as Sanctum Prime, Aegis Prime is renowned for its masterful craftsmanship and technical expertise. The planet's sprawling manufactorums churn out a vast array of advanced weaponry, vehicles, and armor for both the Iron Seraphim and the wider Imperium. The relationship between Aegis Prime and the Iron Seraphim runs deep, as the Forge World has extensive knowledge of the chapter's specific gene-seed flaw, as their forge world is responsible for housing the Iron Seraphim’s gene-seed stores.

Notable Campaigns Throughout their existence, the Iron Seraphim have embarked on numerous campaigns, fighting alongside their brethren to defend the Imperium. They have faced the horrors of the Warp, repelled xenos invasions, and brought swift retribution to traitors and heretics. One of the most memorable battles in the recent history of the Iron Seraphim Chapter was the Siege of Garros V, a pivotal conflict that tested the chapter's strength and resilience in the face of overwhelming adversity during the conflict known as the 13th Black Crusade of the forces of Chaos. Garros V, a fortress world of strategic importance, had fallen under the iron grip of a Chaos warband led by the malevolent Chaos Lord Kaelus the Foul. The planet's defenses had been crippled, and the populace enslaved, their souls on the brink of damnation. Upon receiving distress signals from the embattled world, the Iron Seraphim swiftly mobilized, their battle-barges descending from the void to make planetfall. Led by Chapter Master Arcturus Voss, clad in his formidable Terminator armor and wielding the mighty power sword, Eternity’s Edge, the Iron Seraphim launched a daring assault to liberate Garros V from the clutches of Chaos. As the Iron Seraphim made planetfall, they encountered a nightmarish landscape of fire and blood. The Chaos warband, bolstered by heretical allies and twisted daemon engines, fought with reckless abandon, their ranks bolstered by the vile energies of the Warp. The sky was aflame with daemonic incantations, and the ground trembled with the fury of the gods. The battle raged for days, with the Iron Seraphim pushing forward, determined to break the Chaos warband's hold on Garros V. With the Revenant Shepherd, Kaiden Silas, leading the charge alongside his fellow Chaplains, his crozius scythe reaping a grim harvest of heretic lives, the Iron Seraphim displayed unwavering resolve and unyielding faith. In the heart of the battle, Chief Librarian Aurelius Vaelan unleashed his psychic powers, calling upon the destructive forces of the Warp to decimate the enemy's ranks. His powers surged forth like a storm, striking fear into the hearts of the heretics and turning the tide of battle in the chapter's favor. Techmarine Zephyrus Fayne, the Iron Shepherd, brought his mastery of technology to bear, summoning devastating artillery barrages and unleashing a legion of battle-automata against the Chaos forces. His iron-clad presence on the battlefield inspired his brothers, his axe, known as Ferrum Ignis, cleaving through the ranks of the heretics with a deadly precision. In the depths of the conflict, the Shepherd of Will, Aurelius Vaelan, employed his psychic prowess and mastery of the chain sword to protect his brethren and aid in the healing of the wounded. The battle reached its climax when Chapter Master Arcturus Voss, alongside his Terminator-clad brethren, breached the inner sanctum of the Chaos stronghold. With Eternity’s Edge, his power sword ablaze with righteous fury, he engaged in a fierce duel with Chaos Lord Kaelus the Foul. Their clash echoed throughout the fortress, their blades clashing with thunderous force. In a final, climactic strike, Arcturus cleaved through Kaelus's defenses, severing the Chaos Lord's head from his shoulders. With their leader slain, the remaining Chaos forces crumbled, their morale shattered. The Iron Seraphim emerged victorious, liberating Garros V from the clutches of Chaos and securing a hard-fought triumph for the Imperium. The Siege of Garros V stands as a testament to the indomitable spirit and unwavering determination of the Iron Seraphim Chapter. It serves as a cornerstone of their history, a defining moment that solidified their reputation as relentless warriors of the Emperor. The battle became the stuff of legends, whispered among the ranks of the Adeptus Astartes and instilling fear in the hearts of their enemies. In the aftermath of the battle, the Iron Seraphim set about rebuilding Garros V, purging the lingering taint of Chaos and restoring hope to its shattered populace. The chapter's Apothecaries, led by Merosian Shepherd Valenius Thorne, tended to the wounded and offered solace to those traumatized by their ordeal. However, hidden amidst the ruins of Garros V, the Iron Seraphim stumbled upon a discovery that shook them to their core. Buried deep within a forgotten catacomb, they unearthed ancient tomes and forbidden relics of dark sorcery, remnants of a forgotten era when the planet had succumbed to the temptations of Chaos. Realizing the magnitude of their finding, the Iron Seraphim faced a crucial decision. They could destroy the tainted artifacts, eradicating the source of corruption and ensuring the Imperium's safety, or they could harness this forbidden knowledge to further their own power, potentially tipping the balance between loyalty and damnation. The Veiled Council, the chapter's inner circle, convened in secret, weighed down by the weight of their dark secret. Led by the Shepherd of Will, Aurelius Vaelan, the council engaged in heated debates, torn between the desire for greater strength and the fear of succumbing to the same darkness they fought to eradicate. In the end, the Veiled Council chose the path of wisdom and sacrifice. They decreed that the relics and tomes would be destroyed, their power purged from existence, preventing their corrupting influence from ever endangering the Imperium. It was a painful decision, as the allure of power was strong, but the Iron Seraphim remained true to their duty, forsaking the forbidden for the greater good. Word of their selfless act never reached the wider Imperium, forever locked within the annals of the Iron Seraphim's secret history. They bore the burden of this hidden truth, a testament to their unwavering resolve to protect the Imperium at any cost, even if it meant denying themselves the forbidden power that could have elevated them to new heights.

The Devastation of Baal The Iron Seraphim valiantly came to the aid of their progenitor chapter during the overwhelming events of the Devastation of Baal. Led by their wise and battle-hardened Chapter Master, Grand Shepherd Arcturus Voss, the Iron Seraphim brought their fervor and unwavering loyalty to the Blood Angels' cause. However, little did the Blood Angels know that the Iron Seraphim harbored a dark secret within their gene-seed. Only a select few high-ranking members of the Chapter were aware of this flaw, which set them apart from their esteemed forerunners. Intrigued by this hidden truth, Lord Commander Dante, the Chapter Master of the Blood Angels, engaged in a long and profound conversation with Arcturus Voss after the harrowing events of the Devastation of Baal. Meanwhile, Mephiston, the renowned Chief Librarian of the Blood Angels, eagerly sought to reunite with his former pupil, Aurelius Vaelan, who held the prestigious position of Chief Librarian within the Iron Seraphim. Their shared bond and knowledge of the warp would prove invaluable in the battles to come.

Imperial records indicated that he had surpassed the astonishing age of 8,000 years, an implausible feat by any means.

Rooted in their rich heritage and the inherent superiority of their genetic lineage, the Matadors' path is paved with arrogance and grandeur. At the heart of their Chapter lies the Code of Valor, an elevated principle that transcends mere honour and chivalry. Derived from the noble ideals of ancient tauromachy nobility, this code demands unwavering courage, unparalleled skill, and unmatched grace, befitting their exalted lineage. Through every action, the Matadors strive to embody these virtues, positioning themselves as paragons of nobility on and off the battlefield, revelling in their superiority. The Matadors embrace the consumption of blood, elevating it to the status of a sacrament—a direct link to the divine essence of their Primarch and the angelic qualities inherent in their gene seed. Through ritualistic blood rites, they partake in the life essence of their fallen steeds, believing that by imbibing their essence, they absorb their strength and honour their sacrifices in battle. This practice, seen as a sacred communion, forges a profound bond with their Primarch, further amplifying their martial prowess and intensifying their sense of superiority—their thirst for power knows no bounds. To the Matadors, they are not mere warriors but harmonious instruments of the Emperor's celestial will, playing a crucial role in the grand symphony of war.

His presence commands our utmost respect, for he is the conduit through which we confront and conquer our inner demons. In his hands, he holds the sacred relic, a magnificent horn carved from the horn of a formidable creature, a direct descendant of the wild beasts that roam our homeworld of Epona Prime.
