Now, we all know Fulgrim, primarch of the Emperor's Children. turned to Chaos and killed Ferrus Manus, and all that stuff. But, if those who recall remember well, alot of this was because of the sword he found in the Slaaneshi temple. Sure, Horus talked him into it a bit, but, without the daemon possesing him, Fulgrim would have probably realized his errors and denounced Horus' treachery. Now, me being a huge fan of the Emperor's Children, I was most grieved when the noble sons of Fulgrim turned from the God-Emperor's light and sought glory from the Dark Gods. So, since I adore the pre-Heresy color scheme, and hate the post heresy one, I've decided to build my Space Marine army as a pre-Heresy like Emperor's Children Company, commanded by Lord Commander Fulgrim II, heir to the primarch, and bearer of his word and will. Now, I've come up with some nice fluff to go around all this speculation, and, well, I though it would be nice to share it with you guys, and to recieve comments, critics, and, hopefully, compliments! (:
When Fulgrim started to feel he was being consumed by the warp, he sent one of his favoured sons, who was still a recruit, but within whom Fulgrim had seen great potential, into exile on a distant planet on the southern fringe of the Imperium, and had it cloaked with the best technology available, only those who new its exact location would be able to find it. After the Heresy, said heir to Fulgrim mustered the battle company assigned to his protection, and set out in secrecy to receive news of his father and lord. He eventually found the painting in which Fulgrim was trapped, and such was the gene-seed resemblance between Fulgrim and his heir that the two could communicate telepathically through the portrait. Fulgrim ordered his son to find his body, kill the daemon inhabiting his body, and reclaim the honour of the Legion. With his entrusted bodyguard of Phoenix Guard, the last alive in the galaxy, and his assigned battle company, the twenty fifth, the Last, the Lost, Fulgrim II, heir to Fulgrim the Primarch, now travels from his concealed planet to the Eye of Terror on the other end of the Imperium, fighting alien, mutant and heretic alike to restore his Legion's and his Primarch's honour, and to restore the glory of the emperor's realm, for if Fulgrim, one of the lost primarchs, were to return to his father, the entire Imperium would rally around him, and the forces of Chaos banished, and the alien threats of the Ork, Tyranid, Eldar and Tau extinguished like a raging fire by a raging rain strom...
Curious idea, makes me wonder what a Primarch's offspring would be capable of. Only two things really irk me though:
1. Fulgrim's body is now a massive serpentine form with multiple arms. Kinda hard to restore, or get the daemon out now that body and mind, if not soul, are daemonic.
2. Fulgrim's soul/mind/whatever possessing the painting. Daemons can possess things because in their natural realm, the Warp, they are bodiless, essentially just consciousnesses that take form only in the material world. Therefore, something that is pure mind can take control of something inanimate. However, as a human Primarch, Fulgrim's mind is tied to his body and is created by his body's electrical impulses/chemicals/etc. Little more difficult.
Other than those, fun idea, definate creativity points.
its a pretty twisted world were dealing with here, so its not such a stretch that a primarchs soul thingys inhabited somthing else than is daemon body. like was forced out or escaped before the daemon ate him up some how. or a librarian helped him out or some junk.
Well, as for the serpentine deamon body problem, take it as, kill my body and find me and get the Emperor to make me a new one.And since everything short of muffin worlds are possible in the 40K universe, it would be quite possible that Fulgrim is still alive and sane in the painting, waiting for his heir to free him.
They were arrogant, perfectionist, feminine-like if you want, but, this, apart from Fulgrim's possesion by the sword, never made them stray from their loyalty to the Emperor, and their drive for perfection actually drove them to perform better on the field of battle.
Fulgrim was never specifically "Possessed"
He was so distraught over having to kill manus and he begged for abyss.. and to be alone.. the daemon residing in his blade offered it to him but Fulgrim realized his error and was cast into the blade( as far as i know ) and the Daemon took the body for itself
Maybe so, but, without the sword corrupting him, Fulgrim probably would'nt have turned, Ferrus Mannus would have been able to show him his errors, and he would have been able to save his Legion from damnation. Horus definitely put some words into his head, but his bond of friendship with Mannus was greater than with the Warmaster, and, he would have listened to the primarch of the Iron Hands, at least I believe.
Something you are forgetting is that when the primarchs were scattered the corrupt ones were tainted by the chaos gods, they had already planned to Fulgrim to fall to chaos... If none of the other primarchs planned to be corrupted managed to avoid the taint then why would he be able to?
