From Warhammer 40k - Lexicanum
|Marine||Basic Data||Chapter Symbol|
The Knights of Abhorrence are a Dark Angels Successor Chapter.
In the first eight centuries after their Founding, the Knights of Abhorrence fought solely within the Ghoul Stars. There, the Chapter bloodied their swords with the viscera of some of the most dangerous Xenos the Imperium has ever encountered. In the years since, the Knights of Abhorrence have patrolled the outer reaches of the Imperium, slaughtering Xenos horrors whilst acquiring information on the Fallen Angels. It was they who first alerted the Dark Angels' Supreme Grand Master, Azrael, to the events in the Somnium Stars.
The Chapter also maintains the secret 57th Protocol with the Deathwatch, which send its Battle Brothers to serve with the Xenos hunters.
