Heyy again guys I need help with fluff for my dark angels chapter
My idea (this is presuming that Luther is a bad guy):
During the battle over caliban the most loyal of Lion el'Johnsons marines rebeled against Luther in order to save the Lions. Like the fallen they fled after the battle. They now live in the shadows of the imperium sabataging protential threats and warning the imperium of dangers whilst remains invisible. They will often use whatever technology they are able to get a hold of including xenos. They also hunt down the fallen, although rather than torturing them, the Sons of the Lion will rip them lim from lim.
They almost fanatically believe that the Lion lives on and believe the he fought for the emperor during the HH. They believe he will one day return and only then will the sons of the lion reveal themselves.
Only the Emperor, watchers in the dark and Azrael know of their existance
How will I keep the gene seed going
How can I keep them hidden
How will I recruit
How can I warn the imperium of threats without revealing myself
What I would like:
To be able to use alot of vetrens (to show the servivers from Caliban)
To be able to still use bikers
Has anybody got any ideas
Here's what I got:
You can say that servants of the Ominissiah were on Caliban during Luther's Rebellion and sided with the Sons when they went into hiding, this will allow the technology to preserve the Geneseed.
To keep them hidden you can say they established a fortress in an asteroid field of some dead system(possibly Caliban if you want to have fun), this will provide secrecy and an interesting backstory.
You can have them recruit almost like the Sisters when they search for Psykers, just that they are constantly looking for new recruits and when they find one worthy they will take him with them for training so that one day he might join their ranks.
For the warning just say that a rogue trader is loyal to the Sons for some reason(good area for fluff) and whenever the Sons wish to pass on information they give it to him and he passes it on to his many contacts throughout the Imperium.
I love the idea of the rogue trader, I will have to work on that.
Secondly I desgined the founder of the Sons of the Lion
Character: A true leader, he will stand by his troops through thick and thin. A great warrior and like the Lion a great tactition. Will never put any of his troops in danger if it can be avoided esspecially with troops in as short supply as they are.
Background: During Luthers betrail he fought along side the other loyalist conducting raids against the traitiors. He lead the final raid himself into the tower of angels moments before Caliban was destroyed. He stole a number of documents from the tower of angels in order to stop them being destroyed
For several years he studied these documents before making a discovery that shook him to the very core. He ordered his men to protect Cyper (the fallen angel) by all means necessary. He claims that Lion el'Johnsons life and the imperium may rest on Cyper getting to Terra.(I am presuming Cyper is good-just my opinion please feel free to prove this wrong) shortly after Geneon set off alone, nobody knows where and is missing to current date along with the documents)
The Sons of the Lion have followed his orders as best they can leaking false rumours of Cypers where abouts. But the Sons have found this difficult without having an accurate idea of where cyper or Geneon are at the moment
So what do you think???
That actually sounds pretty good, especially the part about Cypher. Plus it kind of explains why the Sons are in hiding besides the fact they were ordered to, because if the Dark Angels or the Inquisition found out they would belabeled heretics and exterminated.
So far I think you're off to a good start, now I want to see what finished story will look like.
