|Sons of Jaghatai|
Dark Purple and Bone White
The Sons of Jaghatai are a Codex Astartes-compliant Loyalist Space Marine Chapter of unknown Founding. They are a Successor Chapter of the White Scars. Almost nothing is known about this Chapter in current Imperial records.
The Sons of Jaghatai's Chapter colours are dark purple with other markings painted in bone white. The alpha symbol from their Chapter iconography is repeated much larger on the right shoulder pad in bone white. Squad number is designated by a bone white coloured Gothic numeral on the right knee plate. Sergeants and other senior Astartes of the Chapter wear bone white helmets and possess a bone white coloured right knee plate.
The Sons of Jaghatai's Chapter badge is a black crescent with a black coloured, tiny Orkhon/Gokturk script character turned on its left side, contained within the crescent's horns, centred on a field of white.
The design of the Chapter badge of the Sons of Jaghatai is drawn from the flags and iconography of the real-world Turkic nations, both historical and contemporary. The crescent moon is often depicted on the flags of Central Asian nations, or countries bearing a great deal of Central Asian influence in their history, such as Turkey, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan and others as it is a commonly symbol of the faith of Islam. The Chapter's badge also includes, in place of a five-pointed star as is common for the flags of Turkic nations, a rune of the ancient Orkhon/Gokturk script, a runiform alphabet used by the early Turks that is broadly similar in appearance to the oldest of the runic alphabets originally used by the ancient Germanic tribes (the Teutonic), known as Elder Furthark.
