Pre-Primarch History: The Flesh Reapers
 
The X legion were once a brutal force with a dark habit of consuming their enemies. Suffering from a hyperactive Omophagea, it gave them this sinful craving and though they learnt a great many secrets from their enemies, they lacked the discipline and patience to learn from them. 
Considered savages by many of the other legions, they became loners, avoiding the judging eyes of their kin. As their hunger for flesh became well known, they were sent into devastating conflicts in the hope that it could calm them. The legion were sent into a brutal campaign against the Croiden Empire, made up of mutants and xenos alike. Shortly after the first engagement, warp storms engulfed the system and contact with the X was lots.
Years later, they re-emerged a hollow shell of what they once her, cold and devastated.  The remaining 2 chapters were hidden away from the rest of the legions. Locked away for the monsters they became and the beasts they had destroyed.   
Eventually a ray of hope broke through there isolation. Aladran Limos, Primarch of the X had been discovered, and he would show them that there curse was in fact a blessing.

Post-Discovery History: The Devourers of Irithon
 
Reunited with their lost liege, they were welcomed with a warm but stern embrace. Aladran saw the same savages who once worshipped him, he didn’t hate them for what they were and knew they could reformed, re-shaped into icons the Imperium needed them to be. Though it took many years for the Terrans to adapt, the vast intake of native Irithons quickly swelled the legion with those already well taught in the primarchs teachings and beliefs. They would seek old lost and forgotten world and guide them in the imperial truth, through tutor and by example they would rid them of their ignorance and turn each world into a might vessel for humanity. 
Once feared, they became beacons of the Imperium, their ability to consume their enemies and see their memories gave them a unique insight into their enemy’s motives and tactics, letting them quickly adapt with certainty. Originally a heavy assault force this refinement of their gift had made them Counter Attack specialists. 
The Devourers would never become a beloved legion during great crusade, the legion was surrounded by dark rumours, instead their need to educate was fanatical and those worlds who refused faced the bloodied fangs of the legion, but worlds who did embrace their teachings often became prosperous and well integrated into the wider Imperium.
Towards the end of the Crusade, the legion found itself clashing with others, not sharing the same views many worlds were left primitive, be it for easy recruitment or to abuse its resources. It became more and more apparent that the Imperium cared more for its overall prosperity than the worlds that granted it.

*their need. Actually that sentence feels like it should be split for the second part to start with "instead".

Gonna record the suggestion here that after the Xth Legion's sojourn in Croiden and severe depletion of numbers, a large number of their ships and other assets are given to other Legions. Often those ships are treated with disfavour by their new masters, despite extensive scrutiny and reconsecration by the Mechanicum.
