Blood Angels: The Blood Angels are a slightly unusual Space Marine chapter, although not as disaproved of by the Inquisition as some Chapters. Their gene-seed replication techniques differ from other chapters slightly, and so mutations such as the Red Thirst and the Black Rage now afflict many with the gene-seed. These traits have also followed through to their Successor chapters. Their Primarch, Sanguinius, was defeated by Horus on his battle barge during the Horus Heresy, and the final minutes of their beloved Primarch is the sight most commonly reported to be seen by those in the throes of these afflictions.
