Sons of Antaeus
|Marine||Basic Data||Chapter Symbol|
The only official Imperial record that lists the Sons of Antaeus is the "Chronicles of the Third Inter-Guild War" of the Inca Sector in 850-901.M41. Captain Rakman of the Subjugators chapter reported that the Sons of Antaeus showed up unexpectedly and opened a 2nd front forcing the Eldar pirates to attempt to redeploy. This resulted in the destruction of the Eldar raiding force.
- The Sons of Antaeus' livery is grey and black
- They are capable of withstanding damage that would kill any normal Space Marine in seconds. There are many rumors as to why they are so difficult to destroy, ranging from reinforced skeletons to genetic manipulation. At this time, the truth is not known.
As with many other Space Marine chapters, the Sons of Antaeus are inspired by cultural aspects of certain societies, The Sons of Antaeus are inspired by the Greek/Berber mythological figure of Antaeus, an incredibly strong and near invincible character descended from Gods.
The obvious links with Herculean mythology could hint at a link between the Sons of Antaeus and the Ultramarines chapter, but there is no official evidence to back up this assumption.
