After a good long while of writing, I've decided to post a bit about my Chapter to try and encourage others to actually try when inventing stories in the 41st millennium.

I'm still developing the Chapter's history, so do bear with me.
The Sagodjur Fjorlag, or Fate Gryphons in low Gothic, are a loyalist Space Marine Chapter founded in the 2nd founding; though presumed initially-- and incorrectly-- to be founded in the 13th cursed founding, along with the Crimson Slaughterers and the Death scythes. A little-known Imperial fists sucessor, that was wiped from existence in a horrific struggle with the Necrons mid M37. For canon's sake, I can never play against Tyranids, or collect legion of the damned, so that's kind of sad but oh well.

They became a fleet-based Chapter early M34 when a Necron tomb woke beneath the surface of their Chapter world, Nastrond. Extermanitus was performed, but not before the Chapter managed to save a few thousand of the populace aboard a Space hulk captured a century past. The Chapter now draws recruits from the hive within the space hulk.
When developing a Chapter, it would only make sense to include things you enjoy; base their style after what-ever point of history you like most. For instance, I chose an ancient Scandinavian theme, giving my battle-brothers Norse names; not unlike the Space Wolves, but not so feral, and from my knowledge they had next to no successors, so there we are.
I also like to include references-- some subtle and some less-than-subtle-- to some of my favorite video games and songs.
