The Red Seraphs 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.


Notable CampaignsEdit

  • Dark Marches Crusade (610-759.M36) - In the wake of the Age of Apostasy, the Segmentum Tempestus sees a resurgence in power and renaissance of expansion, known to Imperial historians as the "Rising Storm." With the blessing of Terra, Segmentum Tempestus authorities launch a number of crusades and campaigns to destroy lingering threats within their domain, and push back and fortify the borders of the Imperium. The most successful of these is the Dark Marches Crusade, commanded by Lord Tempestus Hal Orpheus, lineal descendants of the Rogue Trader house that had first explored the Orpheus Region's sinister reaches millennia previously. The Red Seraphs send three companies of Astartes to take part in the massive Imperial Crusade.
  • The Batte of the Gorgon Deeps (160.M39) - When the Orpheus Sector is attacked by a great Ork invasion, the Red Seraphs and their brothers from the Space Marine Chapter of the Revilers reinforce Battlefleet Orpheus and confront the Ork menace. In a nineteen-week running space battle, the Chapter eventually succeeded in destroying the Ork flagship Mega-Kroozer by boarding it and planting seismic charges. With the loss of their flagship the Orks scatter but would go on to be a thorn in the Sector’s side for centuries to come.
  • Magdellan Prime Civil War (143-151.M41) - When the followers of the Cult of Balthalmus plunged the world of Magdellan Prime into anarchy and bloodshed, the Battle-Sisters of the Order of the Ebon Chalice bear the brunt of the fighting. The Order's Preceptory Reclusium is repeatedly targeted by the maddened hordes, but holds out against seemingly impossible odds until relief eventually arrives. By the time a relief force consisting of Space Marines of the Red Seraphs, Fire Angels and Sons of the Kraken Chapters arrives, the Battle-Sisters have begun a determined counter-attack and victory is ultimately won.
  • The Orphean War (992.M41) - Eager to aid in the defence of a domain that they had helped to claim in the name of the Divine Emperor, the Red Seraphs sent out troops to the Orpheus Sector to participate in the Orphean War. Although they arrived too late to participate in the disastrous Battle of Amarah, the inbound Red Seraphs are expected to be drawn into the Orphean Salvation Campaign, striking out at the Maynarkh Dynasty of the dreaded Necrons whilst the Imperium fortifies the neighbouring Eurydice Sector.
