The Emperor's Hawks is a Loyalist, Codex Astartes-compliant Space Marines Chapter of unknown origin and Founding date. The Chapter specialises in Jump Pack-assisted assaults, followed by squadron-strength attacks by highly-mobile units of Land Speeders.
The Emperor's Hawks primarily wear red Power Armour. The Aquila or Imperialis on the chest plate, as well as the shoulder pauldron trim, are yellow. The right poleyn (knee guard) bears a white squad specialty symbol -- Tactical, Assault, Devastator or Veteran. A black Roman numeral is centred upon the squad specialty symbol, indicating squad number. The white Roman numeral on the left poleyn designates company number.
The Emperor's Hawks' Chapter badge is a single stylised, white hawk's wing, on a field of red. This symbol is used on both the right and left shoulder plates.
