From Warhammer 40k - Lexicanum
The Chapter Champion is a member of a Space Marine Chapter's Honour Guard. He must be ready to challenge any enemy leader to single combat.
These individuals hold a special place within their Chapter as they are warriors of immense skill and are known for their unyielding bravery. Chapter Champions are willing to lay down their lives in defence of their Chapter Master and in battle they are ready to face the challenges of any enemy leader in single combat with all their training focused on this singular duty. As befitting their role, they are provided with Power Swords and a combat blade in order to fight for the honour of their Chapter.
