here they are:
Chapter: Angels of Oblivion
created in the 20th Founding; around 800.M35
their Geneseed is that of the Scions of Sanguinius. no real close relations with their parent chapter.
during the creation, the chapter had an other name. but while declared Excommunicatus Traitoris, all info on their former name was lost, and all the records go by this name.
- Famous Achievements:
666 M36: The First war in Heaven: Captain Lucifer and his company Fall to the Dreaded powers of Chaos. The chapter tries to Fight off the traitors; but there were Survivors; and they fled, with Battle Barge Eregoth, to an Unknown place. Captain Lucifer was Mortally wounded by Principalty Michael; but survived, as the Dark powers saw it was not his time yet. Lucifer had killed many marines in his Betrayal.
700 M36: Lucifer decides to attack the Beliris System, for they were running low on supplies. during that same raid, he Slaughtered 10 million innocent people, and the local PDF. the Planetary leaders Asked The Angels of Oblivion for aid, but they were too late. when they arrived, Lucifer was long gone, leaving the Trail of Blood behind.
876 M36: Lucifer Returns once again. slaying another population, leaving them all but exterminated. the Angels of Oblivion are again too late to track him down.
101.M37: Assault of Lucifers Warband on an Imperial Transport. Inquisitors blamed the Angels of Oblivion for it. The chapter pleaded it was Lucifer's Warband, but the Inquisition didn't believe them. the Chapter got Declared Excommunicatus Traitoris until they could bring the Head of Lucifer to the Ordo Hereticus; but all traces of the Chaos warband were Vanquished.
250 M37: Lucifer slaughters a rather small Eldar Craftworld. when he had slain the Autarch in a 1-on-1 duel, he finally got rewarded for his terrible deeds, and finally got Ascended to the Daemonhood.
256 M37: the Chapter has difficult to survive. being chased by the Inquisitorial fleet didn't help it either. also, the Flaw was taking it's toll.
succeeding to escape the Inquisitorial fleet; they stationed in a Non-imperial system, conquering it; and the battle for survive begins.
the chapter is able to recruit again.
300 M37: Principaltie Michael, along with the Arch Angels, find an abandoned imperial transport fleet. sign show it was a slaughtering, but no resources were taken. Michael decides to take the fleet with him, and the Chapter's fleet is reinforced with those ships. they prefer to use those ships for missions; and keep the Chapter's original, and easily recognisable, fleet at bay at their System.
305 M37: Tau fleet signalled in the system. the chapter hid it's fleet, and found out they were just trespassing. Vox contact was opened after they left the system, but no responses.
430 M37: 7th company, during exploration of a nearby system, had rescued an Rogue trader fleet from the earlier signalled tau fleet.
the Tau fleet surrendered, and exterminated. Rogue trader fleet decides to stay with the Chapter. all kinds of tau technology still in tact are taken to the Chapter's system for Expectation, or even for their own use. high priority: researching the Battlesuit Technology for own use, but no results yet.
666 M37: Second War in heaven: Lucifer had Achieved the rank of Daemonhood; and saw his chance clean to destroy it's parent chapter. he tried to lure them over, but they resisted. Lucifer attacks the Angels of oblivion's fleet, with Aid of Chaos Daemons. is this the last fight for the chapter?
the Rogue traders turn out to be under command of the Ordo Hereticus, send to keep an eye on the chapter. halfway the war; they send Reinforcements to aid the chapter in it's war against Lucifer. the war was won, but none of the High- Daemons was found. Lucifer was confirmed to flee with his Cohorts once again. Imperial services accepts the chapter once more as a glorified chapter of the Adeptus Astartes. many of the nearby systems were Conquered in service of the imperium, but command was given to the Angels of Oblivion. as they were regained in their honour, the Chorus decided to rename the chapter to Angels of Oblivion, after the Battlebarge which put them through this all. the rogue traders decide to stay with the chapter, together with their adversaries. Inquisitorial fleet leaves. PDF force may now be risen; and so they did. Chapter acquires the STC sheets, and the Mechanicum can support the Chapter once more.
275 M38: the Chase: the Chapter dispatches the 9th Company to find lucifer, and exterminate him. Principaltie Azrael has the command.
300 M38: Tau fleet encountered in a nearby system. Together with the 7th Company, Principaltie Jegudiel sends the tau back from where they came. Losses are very low, and much of those losses are considered the Death Company.
more and more men seem to be giving in to the flaw.
380 M38: Principaltie Azrael found out the Raids Lucifer makes are only a quest for survival, as the Red thirst overcame them. they seem to control it somehow by drinking the blood of their enemies. this is Valuable information for the Chorus, and it causes concern. what if this is a cure?
390 M38: Rogue Trader captain Ezeral hears of the so-called ''cure''. he remembers something about a nearby planet, where wild Giant Bats live. research is started, for there must be a way to beat the flaw.
410 M38: a flock of Giant bats is taken to the Homeworld. deep researching and breeding in the following centuries will turn out pretty usefull.
655 M38: Giant Bats have been breeded to work together with the Chapter's marines. now usable as shocktroops in the Speartip. their sector is captured, but the only difference is that now an Adept of the Magis Biologis keeps an eye on them. all other kinds of bats (including enormous, almost Mutant like bats, wich, according inscriptions in the Ruins, were called Varghulfs) are taken to the homeworld for the possibility of taming.
Inquisition grows suspicious again, but doesnt act yet.
910 M38: full combat strength is finally reached again, and, indeed, the Blood Rituals seem to work. although it is not the blood of civilians, but that of Grox, the main food supply from a nearby Agri-world. Red Thirst seems to lessen, although the Black Rage still keeps bugging the chapter. there seems to be one problem: the new recruits, testing the "cure", become too agressive, and the drinking of blood seems to stimulate the Black rage. once again; there is no cure for the flaw.
they had a Homeworld. but when they had been Declared Excommunicatus they fled, leaving it behind.
then they were fleet based, with the Battle Barge ''the Oblivion'' as Flagship.
after a lot of fleeing they stationed themselves in the Lethe sector, with the biggest planet (and most suitable) as their new homeworld, calling it Oblivion, after their Flagship wich has guided tehm through so much pain.
- Combat Doctrine:
Fast, Rapid, Mechanized strikes into the heart of the Enemy. they Excel at Close Quarter fights, taking the Fight to their enemies in hand-to-hand combats. reports have shown that the chapter has somehow a great thirst for blood. not Confirmed.
the Chapter has learned to work together with the Bat-like creatures from the Lethe system, wich need blood to feed on. some say, this is to shade the Chapters need for blood, and rumours go the chapter also feeds on blood. nothing of that is ever confirmed.
they adhere very close to the Codex Astartes, except they don't trust one man to lead the Chapter. instead, they formed ''The Chorus''. this existed of all 10 Captains, together with the advisors <as in Fleet commander, Lord Apothecary, High Chaplain, Chief Librarian, Logister, Master of the Armoury and the Rogue trader captain Ezeral>
Scavenge battlefields for recycling of parts. turns out to be very effective during Wars with Tau fleets.
the Chapter has grown towards using scavenged parts, and Artificers are even possible to research Tau Technology very closely.
Dominions: the overall title members of the Chorus achieve.
Cherubims: the chapter's name for Apothecaries
Seraphim: the Chapter's reclusiam.
Exousies (or powers, depends on the source): librarians
Virtues: the Members of the Armoury
Thrones (or Ophanim): Logisticiam
Arch Angels: the name of the First company. a rank given to all veterans of the Chapter.
- Principaltie Michael (1st company/arch angels)
- principaltie Gabriel (2nd company)
- principaltie Raphael (3rd Company)
- principaltie Uriel (4th company)
- principaltie Sealtiel (5th company)
- principaltie Jegudiel (6th Company)
- principaltie Barachiel (7th Company)
- principaltie Jeremiel (8th Company)
- principaltie Azrael (9th Company)
- the 10th company is overseen by Michael and the Thrones.
the Chapter wants to bring peace again in their chapter. Exterminate Lucifer, and Defeat the flaw.
"For the Emperor and Sanguinius, Into Oblivion!"
i'm not done with the background yet. that was just a short idea of how i want it to be. still busy on the Chaos warband's background & IA.
