The rise and fall of
The Ashen Crows
The XI Legion
Hey guys, Here's the start of my missing legion project.
This is my 4th attempt to create a missing legion, but I hope by creating this blog i will be encourage to follow of through with it till the end.
The Lore is currently in the works but basically they have a large amount of apothecaries and do a lot of studing of xenos races.
Their primarch is a giant apothecary pretty much. Though due to his upbringing on his home world he is physically the weakness of the primarchs though makes up for it in his vast knowledge of biology and other scientific fields.
The primarch landed on a planet which had been devastated by a virus, reducing most living things to ash.
The primarch being a primarch was immune to the viruses effects and was found by a recon team. Seeing the child primarch they captured him and took him back to the capitol: a huge network of bio-domes that protects them from the virus.
It was the decided that the primarch would be tested on in order to find a cure.
All these test devastated the primarch physically and mentally to the point where he developed a spilt personality, one half compassionate, kind, charismatic. the other cold, calculating and savage.
his darker side takes over, which through force breaks out and goes to hunt down the scientists. he ends up in a forest, overwhelmed with the beauty and complexity of other life his normal side takes over.
eventually found by the head scientist, the primarch finds out he was tested on so that they could find a cure, "to bring this world back from the ashes, you are the ember that will ignite a new age". but also finds that the scientist test him had suffered mentally, traumatised by what they had done to a living being.
This pretty much gives the primarch his moral compass, he feels that sacrifices have to be made in order to progress. but feels that humans shouldn't have to suffer in wars.
The primarch is trained under the scientists and quickly surpasses them in all fields of science, especially biology. using his knowledge he starts to terraform the planet, then papa emps arrives.
The primarch came into the legion with saddness, finding out the suffering affecting the galexy and how men are having to give away their lives in order to fight.
He praised all of his new found sons, and promised that one day no one will have to suffer in the acts of war ever again.
the first recruits taken from the home planet was criminals, the primarch deeming them the only ones worthless enough to loose nothing from joining the legion.
As time went on, the primarch grew to hate the solar axilla and imperial milta and would force them to retreat or he would not fight. seeing it as a waste of life.
often before and during battles his personalities would argue, each one having different ways to achieve the same goal. depending on who won out wars could be focused on protecting the world, or bringing it to the torch. "by killing thousands we could save billions".
The primarch decided to improve the space marine recruitment process and started to grow test tube humans, whos genetics would allow them to be more susceptible to the gene seed in-plant. The humans born were raised in the ships and fortress of the legion learning the lesson of the primarch and the imperial truth.
I'm still working on all the details but this is just a basic outline.
