In appearance, the Space Wolves are savage and wild, adorning their armour with a combination of finely-wrought talismans and skins, bones, and teeth taken as trophies from beasts they have slain in single combat.Even in their manners, the Battle-Brothers of the Space Wolves differ from most other Space Marines, for they are competitive and headstrong, and at once individualistic and fiercely loyal to their "Pack." Space Wolves seek to write their saga with every deed they perform and every battle they fight, and perhaps more than any other Chapter, their service is an epic in itself.Since the Imperium came into being, the Space Wolves have fought tooth and nail for the cause of the Emperor.
Every Adeptus Astartes Chapter is a cadre of heroes, and the Space Wolves even more so than most, so to earn a special place in the annals of his Chapter, a Space Wolf must perform truly epic deeds and face such foes as would give even the mightiest of figures pause.
Their genetic inheritance is at once a blessing and a curse, for although each Space Wolf is gifted of the superhuman senses of Russ himself, their enhanced physiologies can be overcome by the change and mutation can occur.
In organisation, the Chapter has never paid any regard to the dictates of Roboute Guilliman's Codex Astartes, stubbornly cleaving to the structure that saw it through the wars at the dawn of the Age of the Imperium.
"The Sons of Fenris they are, hardened in the forge of their harsh world, eager for battle and honour.
They are the grey warriors, ashen like the wolf, whose greatest joy is to hear the clamour of steel amidst the din of war.""For Russ and the Allfather!
