Anybody no if there is any substantial information on the malevolent marines, they came up in one of my books, cant remember which one though, i no they are bit arrogant, looked on internet but cant find anything usefull, was just wanderin, if there was a book about them in existence or even in making?
The Marines Malevolent served in the 3rd war for armageddon. They are a strong chapter, and operate codex style, clean and efficient. If I remember correctly, they got into an argument with the Imperial Guard and the Salamander's chapter master after they shelled a camp with whirlwinds even though there where still civilians in there with the orks. When confronted, their captain went on a rant about the superiority of marines over humans and how the refugees didn't deserve to live.
It's worth noting that it's that the captain's views may or may not have been the chapter's views, but given the marines malevolent as their name and the fact that his troops willfully followed his commands, it's safe to say they are definitely not nice.
Personally I have always liked this chapter because of their honesty and ruthless efficiency. I like to play as them when I play Dawn of War. I haven't found any sources for additional info on them.

More specifically, the refugees tried to run away from the Orks rather than fight them. The Marines Malevolent interpreted that as cowardice and so made no effort to protect them. The most efficient way to kill the Orks was a missile strike; who cares if a deserter gets shot in the process? (I think they were honestly surprised by the IG's complaint.)Originally Posted by Ebon Hand
I like them too because they think the way a Marine should, after extensive indoctrination and a lifetime of constant war. Too many Marine Chapters act like noble-minded statesmen, archaeologists, curators or even artists; they ought to be dedicated warriors with an appropriately brutal code of conduct.

Remember to take a look at where the information came from at the bottom
Yeah, Space Marines are way to nice. I mean, 12000 refugees won't make a differance on a world that numbers in its tens of billions!
