The Fire Angels are a Space Marine Chapter descended from the Ultramarines that have a zealous devotion to the Imperial Creed.[1b]


The Fire Angels were created from Ultramarines gene-seed. They fought on the loyalist side during the Badab War. In one incident during the war, the rebel Astral Claws launched a suicidal counter-attack, in which a squadron of Rhinos broke through an Imperial salient to the Fire Angels' lines and detonated a virus missile, causing more deaths in one day than the Fire Angels had suffered in the war so far.[Needs Citation]

The Fire Angels are a highly zealous chapter. Fervent believers in the Imperial creed, they do not revere their ancestral primarch as many chapters do, believing this to be a form of idolatry. They tend to rely on "basic" Imperial technology and codex equipment, such as Rhinos and Predators, while their 1st Company is mostly composed of Sternguard Veterans rather than Terminators.[1b]

Known as a conservative chapter the Fire Angels are strict adherents to the Codex Astartes. Due to their belief that the Emperor is a god, they share many links with the Ecclesiarchy and regularly fight alongside the Sisters of Battle.[4]
