Name: the Aegiswing
Founding: 2nd. The Aegiswing was founded by Alehandros Mazraen of the Ultramarines. As Captain of the 5th Regiment, he fought alongside Roboute during the Great Crusade and earned countless accolades and honors. However, Alehandros was often disinterested with the goals and motives of the Marines, prefering to aid any and all he possibly could, saving the people of the Imperium as well as its warriors. Upon the 2nd Founding he was immediately selected to found his own chapter in the vision he desired.
Symbols/Motifs: -Wings are the most prevalent icon, featured heavily across the entire chapter, with Commanders often adorned with a multitude of winged badges, honors, pauldrons, etc
-Shields are a secondary symbol, used predominantly by
-Kryta was conquered in the Great Crusade by Roboute Guilliman, and as such is a supremely rich and vibrant land. With a strong economy, superior living conditions, and a highly advanced civilization, Kryta is an exemplar of the legacy of the Ultramarines Primarch.
-Despite the lack of any war or conflict on the world, Krytans value martial skills above all others, and place a strong importance on a code of justice and chivalry known as The High Oath.
-The government is a nominally a hereditary monarchy, but until recently the royal line had been lost (for hundreds of years). In this time the Lord-Regent was elected by the people for a life term to rule.
-the Captain of the Aegiswing 3rd Company, Artor Haeltes, returned to his home of Kryta at the behest of unnatural dreams and moved the legendary Alazein Rock from the cave it blocked. Unbeknownst to the citizenry (only the revered Oracles), the only one capable of moving it would be the true heir of the throne. As such, Artor was named High King and granted the ancient seat of the Formazar Palace and rulership of Kryta
Background: -The Aegiswing is unlike other Chapters in its organization. Each of the 10 companies is a self-sufficient battle company. Their doctrine states that Captains are granted leeway and independence (within parameters set by Chapter Master) to act as they wish. Each company raises its own recruits from a specified region of Kryta, and each company's members remain in that company for their entire career (barring special circumstances). As such, each company contains its own Veterans, Scouts, vehicles, etc.
-When a Captain is raised to Chapter Master, his company (no matter the #) becomes known as the Honor Company and functions as his personal force. The CM will often Crusade or go on Campaign and summon 2-3 other companies if the need is there.
-the Aegiswing is known as a particularyl chivalrous and gallant Chapter. they will often come to the aid of other Imperial forces, as well as protecting civilians to a vastly greater degree than other chapters. Even certain alien races (Eldar, Tau) who are the victims of Chaos/other "evil" forces are often protected
-above all else, the chapter values honor and valor. however, they will not needlessly or foolishly waste troops. The Aegiswing practices efficient, precise action, securing objectives and attaining goals with the minimum force required
