Hello Brothers and Sisters of B&C,
My knowledge on the topic of Chaos gods, in particular Khorne, is very minimal and I have been wondering if there are varying levels of devotion (insanity?) upon pledging your soul to Khorne?
For example, can a marine be level headed during day to day and completely lose it in close quarters? Do those that pledge themselves to Khorne all end up like the betrayer Khârn unless they die first?
The reason is that I love taking stories in a slightly different direction than expected and was considering what would happen to the Celestial Lions if they decided to give the Imperium a giant middle finger after their losses at the hands of the Inquisition. I know I would have been mildly miffed!
Add to this that I have some Khorne marines and several loyalist marines and I was thinking that my angry lions could join (until in fighting flares) with a Khornate warband they encounter.
I just want to make sure that my 'What If' theory is at least plausible within the canon of Khorne. For the sake of this argument lets just assume that the lions do go renegade because I know that according to canon they are still loyal and this is purely for my own spin.
As always, thanks in advance B&C family.
