The Night Swords are a Codex Astartes-compliant Loyalist Space Marine Chapter of unknown Founding and origin. Almost nothing is known about this Chapter in current Imperial records. Perhaps the most notable event for this Chapter in recent centuries has been its recovery of the remains of multiple ancient Land Raiders Proteus, which were used to construct the first of these ancient vehicles since the time of the Great Crusade.

Notable Night SwordsEdit

  • Isak Siavash - Isak Siavash is the Master of the Forge of the Night Swords Chapter who was involved in the construction of the first new Land Raider Proteus since the time of the Great Crusade. While many Land Raiders Proteus still in use by the Adeptus Astartes in the late 41st Millennium hark back to the Great Crusade, a small number have been returned to service after having been lost for countless centuries. The Land Raider Proteus known as the Simurgh Rex is another type of machine still, and has only recently entered the service of the Night Swords Chapter. The vehicle is the result of the combined efforts of many generations of Night Swords Techmarines, who between them recovered the remains of over a dozen wrecked Land Raider Proteus from as many battlefield over the length and breadth of the Imperium. Though each vehicle was so badly damaged and decayed as to be entirely beyond repair, each contributed components to the construction of the Simurgh Rex, a Land Raider Proteus completed in 330.M41 by the Night Swords Master of the Forge Isak Siavash. The very last component to be interred within the war machine was the Augury Web, five of which had been previously located over the millennia, all proving damaged beyond the ability of the Chapter's forge to repair. The work of his predecessors complete, Siavash now seeks a still greater challenge upon the battlefields of the Imperium and beyond, one so grand it too is not likely to be completed for many thousands of standard years.
