The Blazing Kitsunes
There was a section of space, the Tyloo subsector, facing an invasion by the Tau Empire in the 38th Millennium. Captain Suhk of the White Scars was sent to fend off the area. While they were successful, the system was now left undefended. The High Lords of Terra then created the Blazing Kitsunes Chapter, and made Suhk the first Chapter Master. From there the Chapter has prospered.
Their homeworld of Talko Prime is a beautiful one. It is covered in forests with massive trees, jungles, and bamboo forests that offworlders could easily get lost in. There are several cities, including the capitol that has a spaceport. The people on the Western continent are all civilized, but, beyond the bamboo forests, on the eastern continent, it is a different story. The eastern continent is full of barbarian tribes, from which the Kitsunes recruit from. There is a southern continent, but it is very dangerous, full of monstrous carnivores. Only one barbarian has mapped out the area and only his tribe, and the Blazing Kitsunes know their way around the island.
They follow the codex to the book.
They are organized into 9 tribes, the nine tails of the Kitsune. The 9th is a council of librarians, chaplains, commanders and captains, and the Chapter Master. The 1st is made up of neophytes. The rest are armor, assault marines, tactical marines, devastators, etc.
Growing up in the feral tribes of the planet, the barbarians which make up most of the present-day Chapter have their own beliefs. They worship foxes and wolves as spirits, and were told that the local star of Talko was the eye of their god, the Golden Fox, was looking down upon them. Of course, after initiation into the chapter, they now believe the star is actually the eye of the Emperor of man.
A group of marines goes to different tribes within the jungles of the eastern continent and takes the young men they deem worthy to join the chapter. From here, they are sent off to the southern continent, to slay a mighty beast and bring back its head as proof. Only then are they allowed into the chapter as battle brothers. There is no way out of this. If they cannot bring back a trophy eventually, they will be left at the island to survive and fight for their life.
"Kill them all! For Talko, for the Eye, kill them all!"
