A relatively new Chapter formed a half a millenium ago, Aletoth was a sergeant of the Ultramarines 1st Company during the Tyrannic Wars. Believing the entire Chapter destroyed after the cataclysmic battle at the northern defences, he took his grieviously injured assault squad on the ship Emperor's Honor and left the battle immediately. After a year of free-floating, they made contact with the Black Templars, who did not believe them after they gave them the entire identity of the squad. Their names were Aletoth, Jerel, Norin, Cleton, and Kratos. The Black Templars took them in and DNA analysis confirmed they were Ultramarines. The closest Ultramarine encampment was 2 years away, and the Templar ship-master agreed to bring them there. On their way back, the five companions trained extensively in close-combat, learning deadly sword skills in conjunction with plasma pistols, which were their preffered weapons. Indeed, they made contact with an Orc ship and the foolish Orcs had attempted to board them. After finally making contact with the Ultramarines, they were now more like Black Templars then the Ultramarines, as they all had Black Templar weapons and honors. After being brought before the Ultramarines they were to be inducted into the 1st company for another long period. Finally, the Captain of the 1st Company realized that they fought no longer like Ultramarines, as they preffered close-combat. Indeed, the only thing they now had in common with the Ultramarines was their armour, and their hatred for the Tyranids. Marneus realized this, and sent them back to Macragge, where they were relieved of their armour and sent to Terra. Here their new armour was forged for them, they were all given Artificer armour for their brave deeds, but it was by Kratos' request and Aletoth's consent that their symbol was to be th Omega, a Greek symbol thatwhen turned upside-down was an exact replica of the Ultramarines symbol. Through the decades, when Aletoth died the Mastery went to Jerel, then to Norin, then Cleton, and finally to Kratos, who is the current Chapter Master. The Chapter Master always carries the power sword that was gifted to Aletoth by the Black Templars, the sword called the Obsidian Blade, and wears the armor given to them at the time of their founding.
