The Space Marine Chapter
Name: The Dark Ravens
Information: The incessant conflict had blunted the assault launched from the small force and when the masters were assassinated in an ambush the force made a sudden retreat from the traitors, heretics and mutants that held a fortified position on the planet Nemesis Tessera, which is located near the Ocularis Terribus, where the Warmaster Horus had came forth with chaos forces at his heel. The leaderless force in retreat to its home world Caliban was hailed with the call for assistance from an astropath on Terra and so the force made all haste to Terra. It was believed for some time that this unfortunate force had been lost to the warp in its haste to arrive at Terra.
However, within the decade the force parted from the warp and entered the sector where Terra itself lies. The battle was over and with their former home world Caliban annihilated and with the new successor chapters founded it was believed that the force would be abandoned but the supreme council on Terra had other ideas for the force, as it too became a successor chapter. On the supreme councils orders leaders from the Blood Ravens left the chapter in order to lead the new successor chapter. These leaders from the Blood Ravens chapter have been deceased for millennia but the present marines from this successor chapter still bare the black trim on their shoulder plates that honours the sacrifice these leaders made in order to step down from their former chapter to lead the chapter that would become known as the Dark Ravens.
Um...it's a bit hard to understand.So this is a detachment of Dark Angels that tried to get to Terra when the Heresy broke out but got lost along the way?
Also the Administratum would never instruct officers from the Blood Ravens chapter to abandone thier duties in favor of leading a new chapter.They would just promote certain Dark Ravens to higher positions and give them the rescources to rebuild.I'd completely remove the Blood Ravens from this story,unless you want to somehow add some sort honour pact or bond between the two chapters.You couls still say that the black is to honour the death of thier original commanders.

Plus marines cannot change chapters, it would require the changing of the geneseed.
Tact is for people who give a damn. I'm not one of those people.
thats both true and false, you can be disbanded\cast away from a chapter and then serve under another one. its not unlikely because their are a good deal of rogue marines out their somewhere that undoubtedly offer their services to other chapters...
