So, how exactly does the leader of your Chapter knows enough about the Chapter past to question it, while others don't? Why does he thinks the simple explanation "Caliban was destroyed by chaos forces in a cowardly attack" does not sit well with him? Why does the insularity of the DA Chapter bother him?
How come he is loyal to Caliban if he wasn't even created from Calibanite humans? How does he know so much about the Lion code of honor (or lack thereof) if he never fought with the Primarch?
These are some questions that need answering for the cision to make more sense (to me). But your story holds water and is a good excuse for a DA Gene-seed Primaris, but if you already have a "normal" DA collection you'll find more difficult to justify an alliance on the tabletop.
Thank you for your feedback, guys.
Seems like I was a bit in a hurry and forgot to mention some crucial bits. Sorry.
The Primaris leader (current name Alther), does not know about the chapters history besides his own experiences on Caliban until his departure. Until then, he experienced both Luther and the Lion as heroes. Valid point regarding why would he not believe them. My idea was that Azrael and others would try to avoid to explain what happens to Caliban. I do see that I have to think about this.
It's not their insularity, more their secrecy towards their own brothers (himself). He got the impression that they are hiding something. Especially when he's asking them about Luther and the Lion.
Did I make a mistake? He was born on Caliban.
The Order was still the ruling institution on Caliban even after being rediscovered by the Imperium. Thus, the Lions and Luthers teachings are still a valid source for recruits. And of course, some deeds turned into legends. Thus, both of them were raised to living saints / legends.
Any suggestion of how I could let them break ties with their DA brothers? I just can't imagine that every Primaris is saying Amen to everything they're told by their "normal" brothers, especially the DA ones.
Nope, haven't read Angels of Caliban. Still have to read Angels of Darkness and the entirety of the DA omnibus in order to get a good vibe regarding the character and culture of the DA. Will wait for the German version of AoC. Any other stuff you would recommend?
