The Hammers of Dorn venerate their primarch, Rogal Dorn, to a degree far beyond those of the Imperial Fists' successors. Their Chaplains teach that Dorn was the favoured son of the Emperor, as he stood shoulder to shoulder with his father during the darkest days of the Horus Heresy. The Chapter's teachings on Imperial history see a rivalry between Dorn and his brother Roboute Guilliman, and the Hammers of Dorn maintain this rivalry with the Ultramarines and their successors, though this rivalry has yet to express itself in combat between the two chapters, honourific or otherwise.[Needs Citation]

The Hammers of Dorn also have a very real hatred for the Word Bearers Traitor Legion, the Ultramarines' ancient foes, apparently born out of a determination to prove themselves superior to the Ultramarines and their successors.[1]

After returning of Roboute Guilliman and his addition of Primaris Marines in all Space Marine Chapters, Hammers of Dorn first were disagree with this, however after Adeptus Custodes of the Emissaries Imperatus, Sanash Gallimedan, stepped forward and made a fiery speech calling Primaris a gift of the Emperor they were at last convinced to accept this new reinforcement.[6]
