The Eternal Sentinels Space Marines Chapter
The Eternal Sentinels are a Chapter of the 23rd Founding, created in order to better patrol the Ultima Segmentum from threats both without and within. Their gene-fathers are of the Imperial Fists, and prior to their participation in the Baltus Crusade they were a fleet-based chapter.
The homeworld of the Eternal Sentinels, Idajoleti, is a hive world with a hot climate, with the average temperature being 38°C, reaching up to 55°C in the summers. In response, the people of the planet, the tribal Arobruans, have developed darker skin and use a special face-paint made from the ubiquitous Aye fruit to cool themselves down. Their culture is relatively unchanged and their technology still on the low side even after Imperial contact, simply due to the fact that the hot temperatures are not conductive towards electronic dependence. The hives were built when it was noticed that the adaptability Arobruans had to scalding heat let them work effectively as slaves in Imperial ships, a constantly valuable resource.
The Eternal Sentinels practice the art of Meji Iku, or the twin death. This applies to both personal and strategic combat style, as they elevate one trait above all - the speed necessary to slay the opponent not once, but twice, striking in conjunction to break and blockade.
