Although the enemy attacked in numbers beyond count, and fire rained from the sky, the Dark Angels remained undaunted, stoically fighting on.

The beating fury of their weapons punctuated the sonorous chanting of their hymnals of vengeance, combining to deliver a greater truth: The Dark Angels are dreaded by their enemies not go unnoticed. A strange vortex burst and held in awe by those they protect. Yet forth from the warp, whisking the still foetal despite their unsurpassed battle record, the Primarchs into that chaotic realm.

A Gathering of Gargoyles (The Darkangel Trilogy)

Dark Angels are not embraced by those whom they serve. It does not take the heightened The twenty incubation capsules drifted in awareness of an empath to sense the brooding the warp for decades, or perhaps centuries, obsession that coils around the Chapter. Eventually, the amniotic enshrouded by myths and insinuations. They emerge to answer the call as Caliban. They call no planet home, but criss-cross the stars following a mysterious path known only to themselves.

Those forces of the Imperium who serve alongside the Dark Angels find them taciturn, wholly absorbed by their archaic battle rites, CALIBAN as if purposefully detaching themselves from Caliban was as harsh an environment as those they fight to protect. In them there is any in the galaxy. In the dire forests that a brotherhood and a solemnity unmatched covered the globe lived creatures warped by by even the grimmest of their fellow Space unnatural forces, twisted into hulking fiends Marine Chapters.

Of their own agenda, the that stalked the arboreal world. Despite the Dark Angels remain quiet as the grave. Upon danger, Caliban had a human population, for completion of a mission, they disappear with it had been settled during the expansions of the same unexpected swiftness that marked the Age of Technology.

Cut off by warp storms their arrival, heedless of the unease they that savaged the galaxy in the Age of Strife, have spread and uncaring of the rumours civilisation on Caliban devolved over time into whispered in their wake. It is to be one of the must return to a time more than 10, years The people of Caliban were a pugnacious First Legion, the honoured, ago, when the Emperor walked as a man, folk, ruled over by the warrior elite.

They were amazed to see how easily delivered oratory of Luther that convinced would have alerted the beasts that ruled Jonson adapted to the ways of humans, the Grand Masters of the monasteries, those lands.

Yet of the years to join the sweeping crusade. Within the fortress monastery of the cleared of the monstrous creatures that All that can be said with certainty is that Order, the Primarch was assimilated into had once dominated its lands.

A golden for a decade, the young Primarch survived society. There, he and Luther formed a age dawned for the inhabitants of the once on his own. It was in this savage state that close friendship, although they were quite troubled planet.

Where Luther was charismatic, other humans. Jonson was taciturn. Although The knights that Jonson encountered Despite their opposition on many things, Luther did not openly begrudge Jonson belonged to a group known simply as the the two men seemed to fill in the gaps in this honour, he would not have been Order.

Thus was planted the for their members were selected on merit In the following years, Jonson and Luther first seed of betrayal that would, one day, rather than by inheritance. Anyone, even rose through the ranks of the Order.

But all that was in their selfless knights travelled the planet, hunted the most ferocious monsters of the future — for the present, the people of giving aid to those in need. It was on one Caliban, fought famous duels against Caliban enjoyed a time of hitherto unheard of their expeditions that a band from the their mightiest rivals, and performed of peace and prosperity.


To attack with relentless tenacity, and to defend with steadfast determination — these are the qualities of the Unforgiven. These traits, along with a taciturn disposition and a single-mindedness of purpose, were inherited from the Lion himself. So they began, and so they have remained for over ten thousand years. Against all odds, against all foes, the Dark Angels remain resolute champions of Mankind.

There were difficult to discern friend from foe. Warp Unbeknownst to the people of Caliban, cataclysmic battles and terrible massacres, storms cut off communications, and the the Emperor had been waging his Great but also noble deeds and a sense of hope. As the wave After the long darkness of the Age of Strife, trouble on Caliban.

Deciding the Dark of conquests spread, scouts rediscovered Mankind once more had a bright future. All Angels were most needed on Terra, Lion long-isolated Caliban. While Horus storms, Daemon attacks and traps set by with joy as a father finding a long lost son. Events had taken their terrible course.

To Luther, returning planetary governor seemed to him more of the new Imperium. Like Horus, Luther to Caliban felt more like a dismissal. Crusade to drive out Orks, Aeldari and Horus Heresy, the civil war that threatened worse.

They had fought across the were honourable men, merely misguided; Legions, the ones he knew he could not galaxy, but had arrived too late to aid their however, others were power-mad tyrants.

So were the Emperor. Even as the The Space Marine Legions fought an horrors of the situation sunk in, Jonson endless succession of foes, yet they were Many tales have emerged from those formulated a battle plan. The Dark Angels flew hoards of weapons and machinery that had of the old Order. He knew that this was down to the surface of the remaining rock lain there since the Age of Technology.

At the catacombs into the bedrock, excavating other. Although the Primarch possessed heart of the empty wasteland they found room for an entire Legion. After centuries enhanced by vast forces gifted to him by the coherent out of the shell of a man who had of work, warp engines were outfitted as well, Dark Gods. As the two adversaries traded blows, shock waves shook the Luther repeated the same words over and For all its capabilities, the Rock remains a monastery, causing chunks of masonry over again: Chains of lightning arcing to crash down around them.

Outside, the away by the Watchers in the Dark and one across its craggy features, its force fields guns of the Dark Angels fleet pounded the day he would return to forgive Luther rent with cracks, the fortress monastery of planet, reducing the other monasteries to for the terrible sins he had committed. As the planet broke apart, the battle between Jonson and Luther reached its climax. Already weakened by the long fight, Luther staggered, leaving an opening.

As he hesitated, Luther unleashed a furious psychic attack that knocked Jonson to his knees and left him mortally wounded. His was a triple betrayal: The truth shattered his sanity and he slumped down beside the ailing Jonson, issuing a cry of pain and despair that echoed through the warp. Upon hearing that sound, the Chaos Gods realised that, once more, they had been denied. They howled in frustration, and across the galaxy psykers fell to their knees. So powerful was the cry that a rent appeared in the fabric of space and a warp storm emerged to engulf what remained of Caliban.

The remains of Caliban, weakened by the bombardment, were ripped asunder, destroyed in a last apocalyptic explosion. Following the betrayal on Caliban, the insular nature of the First Legion became even more pronounced, and a dark obsession took hold of the sons of the Lion.

The aftermath of the Horus Heresy was a time of great mistrust. The Masters decided the true story of giving machineries of the Golden Throne. Their first orders were to seek out the hidden Dark Angels had ever turned to the Ruinous Powers.

Should the roots of the rebellion, to search for collaborators, and to follow up truth be revealed, they would be labelled Excommunicate Traitoris on the retreat of the Traitor Legions that had joined the treacherous and never given a chance to redeem themselves.

The senior Warmaster. They created an overlapping system operations were attacked.

All across the Imperium, a tangled web to watch over their own brothers, and also themselves. Everyone of suspicion hung over everything, misdoubts that were only made would be scrutinised for signs of corruption. Thus started a spiral of worse as further investigations revealed yet deeper corruption.

Thus began the Age of the Imperium, an era steeped in paranoia, recriminations and vengeance. After all, if Horus — the right hand Such was the scale of the disaster upon Caliban that there could be of the Emperor — could turn traitor, who might be next?

Psykers across the galaxy had sensed the warp storm, and the titanic flash of the tempest meeting the indomitable force It was in this new age of fear and doubt that the remaining Dark field had blazed like a supernova. However, the Dark Angels had a Angels assembled to pay tribute to their lost Primarch. Internalising systematic cover-up of the truth in place, for each remaining battle- their grief, the Dark Angels pulled together, their Masters forming brother had taken stringent vows of unspeakable binding to never a plan of action.

In a way, the Dark Angels were born again, single- reveal what really occurred on Caliban. Their story might not have mindedly rededicating their lives to the service of the Imperium. Inquiries found the Dark Angels battered and grief-stricken, but there was little time for any succour. Across the galaxy, traitor strongholds remained and many rebellious planets had yet to be shown the error of their judgement. Leaving only those necessary to oversee the work being done on the Rock, the Dark Angels split their remaining fleet to answer the many distress calls that reached them.

In the Cadian Sector, the Dark Angels joined the Blood Angels, themselves still reeling from the loss of their Primarch Sanguinius, to drive back traitors and Daemons alike with vengeful fury.

On Seption Prime, Terminators of the First Legion arrived just in time to provide a rearguard action, allowing the Ultramarines to extract their forces before the plague planet was destroyed by Exterminatus. Yet even as they proved their worth to the Imperium in war zones across the galaxy, a disturbing discovery was made upon the Rock that once more shook the Dark Angels.

The Fallen Dark Angels madmen, for they will attempt to beguile you. Cleave to your training, for heretics speak naught but lies and damnations. The Masters of the Legion greeted this revelation with typical These proscriptions lessened the risks of a single traitor altering stoicism, despite the inner turmoil it created. On the other hand, the continued existence of the traitors Some initially fought against the splitting of the Legions, such as offered hope, for if the renegades could be tracked down and forced Rogal Dorn, Primarch of the Imperial Fists, but the Dark Angels to repent, then the sins of the Legion might be absolved.

The Grand acquiesced, as doing otherwise would raise suspicion at a time Masters of the nascent Inner Circle swore that so long as even one when they could ill afford further scrutiny. From their Legion were sired the Angels of Absolution, the Once the course of absolution was decided, the Dark Angels Angels of Redemption and the Angels of Vengeance, and perhaps moved with speed and conviction.

Although they had been divided, all had witnessed by prayers and rituals. Even as the Rock was outfitted to become the Fall of Caliban, and knew the true reason behind the calamity; a mobile home world, the Dark Angels were laying down the new this terrible secret they shared meant that no matter the traditions rigours that would govern them. At this time entire new divisions, such as the Inquisition, were developed with the sole purpose of seeking out and destroying internal corruption.

Inspections following the destruction of Caliban judged the Dark Angels fit to continue. Like their primogenitor, they were slow to anger, but tenacious and all but unstoppable once roused. After the disappearance of their Primarch, it did not seem that strange for the remaining Dark Angels to withdraw into their own brotherhood, and for their pensiveness to develop into a brooding silence.

Yet there was one thing remained constant — their campaigns continued to be well planned and effective. Many changes befell the Imperium during these uncertain days.

All had been shocked at the realisation of how insidious the betrayal had been, how far across the galaxy the roots of corruption had spread. Never again could the Imperium be subjected to such widespread rebellion; drastic measures had to be undertaken.

This unique structure remains, even with the addition of Primaris Marines from the Ultima Founding. Battle Companies consist of six battleline 2nd Company, Reclusiam and Librarius. It also includes a small squads, two close support squads and two fire support squads. The 6th to 9th Companies are Reserve Companies, entirely composed of squads of the same designation. The 6th and 7th As per the Codex Astartes, Unforgiven Chapters are made up Companies are Battleline Companies, each consisting of between of ten companies.

Companies are sometimes deployed in their ten and twenty battleline squads. These act as a reserve which may entirety, but their flexible structure and the multitude of war zones be used to bolster the front line, launch diversionary attacks or in which they are needed to fight often means that squads from stem enemy flanking moves.

The 8th Company is the Close Support different companies are assembled in order to execute a mission. Company, and consists of ten to twenty close support squads, most Each company is led by a Master, and is attended by a Chaplain, often used wherever a strong hand-to-hand fighting force is needed.

Company Veterans, Champions and Apothecaries are twenty fire support squads. It is the most heavily equipped company also available at the company level. In such instances, they are identified as companies — in the case of the Dark Angels, the Deathwing and the 11th Squad, 12th Squad and so on. Ravenwing — are unique, and rumours persist that they do not conform to the standard company complement of a hundred Space The 10th Company traditionally serves as the training ground Marines.

It is difficult to ascertain the truth of this, as elements for battle-brothers of the Chapter, and is made up entirely of of both companies are spread wide, attached to forces from the Scouts. Led by a Sergeant, these recruits will take to the battlefield Battle Companies. The Codex Astartes dictates no formal size for the 10th Company, as the rate of recruitment is not fixed. All the 10th Company, maintain Rhino, Razorback and Repulsor members of the Deathwing fight in Terminator armour and are transports for each of their squads.

The Companies. The Deathwing maintain their own specific heraldry, Deathwing has designated Land Raiders, and more are held in the painting their armour and vehicles a distinctive bone-white colour armoury for use as requested by a Company Master. The 2nd Company of the Dark Angels is known as the Ravenwing, and it is even more unusual in its composition than the Deathwing.

The Dark Angels Chapter includes a large number of support staff, They are a specialised mobile formation used for scouting and the great majority of which are human serfs, though there are a lightning-fast strikes, where speed is more of a premium than few Space Marines amongst their number. Most of these are non- firepower. To this end, every single Space Marine in this company is combatants of advanced years, tasked with leading the day-to-day mounted on a bike or Land Speeder, or flies an atmospheric fighter.

Engines roaring, the Ravenwing tear The majority of the Ravenwing fight their engines and roar into the fight, a forward, dodging enemy fire while moving from the saddles of Space Marine bikes, hurtling gale of black armour, blazing guns at breakneck speed.

The Ravenwing are ideal fast-moving attack vehicles. They are for fast assault missions, and elements of With but a word, the Ravenwing can switch assembled from the finest riders and pilots their company can often be found acting as between a variety of perfectly drilled attack in the Chapter, and their skills are further an outriding reconnaissance force for larger patterns in order to encircle, flank, break honed upon induction.

When enemy force with their hit-and-run attacks. Should an especially dangerous or vital target present itself, the Ravenwing mount teleport homers upon their bikes that allow them to summon the warriors of the Deathwing to the battlefield.

Not only does the arrival of their Terminator-armoured brethren all but guarantee victory, it also gives a clue to the true, veiled purpose of the Ravenwing, one that is altogether more sinister in nature. Known only to their Grand Master, and to the carefully selected Inner Circle members of the Black Knight elite, those that the Ravenwing are tasked with hunting down and running to ground are Fallen Dark Angels. The nature of those they track is why every member of the Ravenwing must be not only an expert rider or pilot, but also fervently dedicated to his Chapter.

More than any other force, the brothers of the Ravenwing are likely to be exposed to the pernicious lies of the Fallen. They must therefore be unquestioning in their faith, and are monitored closely at all times by their Chaplain to ensure no chinks appear in their armour of indoctrination. The - Sammael, Grand Master Ravenwing insignia is worn upon the left shoulder pad. No foe is too great for them to subdue, and no mission is too difficult or dangerous for them to complete.

Their reputation is such that the mere sight of their bone-white armour is enough to put many foes to flight. There remain defenders well over a thousand to of Terminator armour, each a nigh- circles within circles, and veterans of the one, but I knew the battle was lost impenetrable relic from a bygone age.

The hammer of the Inner Circle, the Deathwing is an assault force capable of teleporting straight into the midst of battle, ripping the heart out of the enemy with a well placed strike while withstanding tremendous amounts of return fire. Only Dark Angels who have shown incredible skill at arms and total loyalty to their Chapter can undergo the exacting rites of initiation required to join the Deathwing.

In battle this knowledge makes the Deathwing beacons of righteous fury, leading their brothers to mercilessly destroy any who would oppose them. Every warrior of the company is utterly devoted, following the commands of their superiors without question and willingly performing any act in the name of the hunt.

For this reason, very few Dark Angels strike forces go to war without at least one squad of Deathwing on hand, prepared to carry out those orders from Chapter command that battle-brothers outside of the Inner Circle would find abhorrent.

Yet some of the recruits as those initiated into the Deathwing.

In this process, the Dark Angels take no chances. Terminator armour, and enables them to discharge their duties to the fullest; alongside the normal tasks of record keeping, psychic With all their secrets, the Dark Angels are especially wary of warfare and interstellar communication, these powerful psykers psykers, yet it is not only their shrouded past they wish to protect.

It is for this reason that the Librarians because psykers are naturally unstable, and their untutored of the Unforgiven have developed their own, sinister branch of telepathy, a discipline that allows them to burrow into the minds of their victims and lay their darkest secrets bare.

While Dark Angels Librarians wield bolters and blades on the battlefield in the manner of their brothers, the powers of Interromancy are their true weapons. Opening their minds to the warp on the battlefield leaves them vulnerable, however, so to protect themselves and their own secrets from the foe, they will wear psychic hoods.

Typically constructs attached to their power armour, these prized artefacts use intricately wired crystal diodes that empower the Librarian to resist psychic attacks. While Cypher is foremost amongst them, the Daemon Prince Marbas has risen to a close second. Sketchy, half-formed reports of a suspected Fallen named Marbas leading a renegade warband first surfaced in M36, but how the Daemon Prince of the same name came to earn the vile favours of the Dark Gods, or even if it is the same being, is unknown.

All that can be sure is that the winged Daemon Prince speaks too much truth, and still bears the unmistakable elements of the armour of the First Legion. It is his burden to carry the keys that unlock all the doors within the depths of the Rock, save one.

In this book are the names of the Fallen that have been captured, written out in their own blood. Although the majority of those within the Chapter do not understand the true significance of the bound volume, all Dark Angels will fight with unmatched zeal to protect the treasured relic.

His thesis is revelatory: Vivien's affair with Bertrand Russell was a source of keen agony to Eliot, and was the impetus for these tragic poems once thought primarily satirical. Using these works as barometers of the poet's emotional state, he shows the progression by which Eliot creates the caricature of Sweeney for self-defense in the face of his own humiliation, for wounded revenge against Vivien and Russell, for the unsentimental analysis of his own conflicted sexual emotions, and eventually for "comic purgation" As is always the case with Schuchard, his mastery of minutiae--his memory for the most esoteric nuances of textual inconsistencies and his familiarity with scattered archival material--serves him as divining rod.

He finds the treasure when he examines a rare edition in which "Sweeney Among the Nightingales" appears, where Eliot had appended another epigraph found in no other printings of the poem.
