[size=18pt]The Children Of Anubis[/size]

The Children of Anubis are a brooking Chapter with a doomful disposition. From below dark-skinned brow ridges, sulphurous yellow eyes gaze forlornly upon the galaxy. In those sad eyes of the Children of Anubis, the galaxy - no matter how bright or beautiful the moment - teeters on the brink of unavoidable collapse. This perception infects their every thought and action. A joyous moment is a rare one for an Anubi. Despite their resignation to an unavoidable and bleak fate, the Children of Anubis do not go to their end calmly and without a struggle. Instead, they strive with a tenacity born of the knowledge that life rarely lasts long, often ends painfully, and ceaseless exertion is required if one is to continue living.

A Child of Anubis only finds humour in the most bitterly ironic situations, and his laugh is a harsh, mirthless barking. At that most bitterly ironic moment, his own death, his laugh is harshest. He is rarely disappointed since his cynical mind expects even the most grievous of wrongs. When striving against a hated enemy, his hackles rise baring yellowed fangs, and threatening growls escape from his throat. When he loves, whether be it a person, a place or an ideal, he considers his love with a sadness of untold depths - for he knows that soon it must end.

The bodies of the Children of Anubis are gaunt and leanly muscled; their skin is jet-black and as dark as the deepest shadow (a mutation of the Melanochromic Organ). Often, their bodies are tattooed and their armour decorated with warding sigils and protective signs. The Children of Anubis are a superstitious Chapter, prone to seeing omens and portents in the most mundane of happenings. They believe that the outcome of any action is fated, and can be foretold by what happens around them: a flock of vultures circling overhead and croaking hungrily; or a cluster of dark clouds scudding across the sky and obscuring the Sun's light.

Despite all portents of an ill fate, A Child of Anubis will not be dissuaded from his intent. If what he intends is important and necessary, instead of trying to change his fate, he still pursues his goal. Certain that he is already doomed, he strives all the more fiercely. He knows that the hours of his life are few, and so acts heedless of any danger. Knowing that he is already doomed, he throws himself into peril with reckless abandon. He knows that at the end of the day, he will be dead; and it is far better to die with the blood of his enemies dripping from his teeth and salty on his tongue, then to go to his death meekly and without a struggle.

The Children of Anubis were formed during the 3rd founding, they were formed by splicing Dark Angels geneseed with Space Wolves geneseed, this odd combination was to get rid of the Curse of the Wulfen, marring the superior DNA of the Space Wolves, but apparently it has failed, as the brothers of the chapter grow older their fangs grow larger, their Chapter Master Anubi, guardian of the dead and lord of the Cynopolis is recorded to have fangs over 2” long. As such, they are the servants of the dead. The Children of Anubis consider it the duty of the living to provide for the departed, and insure that they dwell in paradise for eternity. In their Fortress Barge Cynopolis, the decks are filled with the tombs of the dead. While all Chapters have a Fortress, only on the Cynopolis is the honour of the dead so completely joined with the courage of the living.

Every Child of Anubis serves the dead in some way. Apothecaries prepare the bodies of the dead to withstand the ravages of time. Chaplains solemnly lead lamenting processions of the now lost, accompanying their brothers to their final resting place. Tech-Marines craft the sarcophagi within which the dead are laid to rest, returning to fight another day. Warriors grimly stand guard in the decks of the Cynopolis, protecting their dead from the deprivations of chaos.

The Children of Anubis go to great pains to preserve and guard the bodies of their dead. They believe that if a body is not embalmed or if a tomb is violated, then the deceased's soul will fall to chaos to suffer never-ending torment. By their knowledge, art and skill, the Apothecaries insure that the body is able to withstand the ravages of time. For many millennia, the art of the Apothecaries was enough to keep a soul from being condemned to chaos, but with the advent of the Eye Of Terror, that is no longer true.

[hr]

[size=16pt]History & Society[/size]

The Traitors of chaos have turned the Apothecaries art against them. They take the Chapters geneseed and make new chaos warriors. While the soldiers of chaos are a horrible sight to behold, more horrifying is the knowledge that the souls of the dead are taken to feed the insatiable appetite of Slaanesh. No Chapter feels this blasphemy more deeply than the Children of Anubis.

The Children of Anubis have always been a doomful and cynical Chapter. The ravages of chaos have only made them more so. With each fallen world, the Children of Anubis despair of ever defeating this perverse evil. Their despair causes them to grow desperate, but it is not in their nature to surrender. Instead, they become more merciless in battle; and forever seek out more esoteric lores, searching for more powerful weapons to use against chaos.

[hr]

[size=16pt]Allies & Adversaries[/size]

There is a great deal of animosity between the Children of Anubis and the Eldar. In seeking ways to defeat chaos, the Children of Anubis have travelled down many dark paths, pursuing strange, shadowy lores. The Eldar are the keepers of such knowledge, and judges of what is fit for mortals to know. On many occasions, the Children of Anubis have petitioned the Eldar for access to tomes and scrolls, which were long ago forbidden. Each time, they have been denied. The Eldar claim that the lores are too dangerous for any mortal to know, but the Children of Anubis accuse the Eldar of hoarding their knowledge for their own benefit. Even worse, the Eldar often work to prevent the Children of Anubis from exploring the ancient ruins of long-dead civilizations, and unearthing lost knowledge. The attempts of the Eldar to thwart exploration often result in battles between the two races. As each year passes and the hordes of chaos attack again and again, the need of the Children of Anubis becomes more pressing, and their dislike for the Eldar grows. Their dislike has already blossomed into violent hatred.

The Children of Anubis are too grim and sombre to enjoy the company of the other Chapters, but they often find themselves allied with the Grey Knights, Dark Angels, or Space Wolves. Against the hoard armies of chaos, only the Grey Knights are possessed of the courage and discipline to stand side by side with Children of Anubis. Only the Dark Angels possess the stubborness and relentlessness in battle, equal only to the Anubi. Space Wolves and the Children Of Anubis have always had a mutual respect for one another seeing each other as the pinnacle of the Eperors divine justice they fight as brothers, sometimes even mixing squads together under the command of a brother from either army.

[hr]

[size=16pt]Way of War[/size]

Before a battle, the Children of Anubis silently gather. In hushed tones, they discuss the battle to come and their dreams of the night before. They strive to understand their nocturnal visions, searching for some portent of the coming fight. If the portents are good, they cynically wonder what will go wrong to change their fate from weal to woe. If the portents are ill, they set their shoulders and clench their fists, readying themselves to meet their doom.

In battle, the Children of Anubis fight with a despairing and ruthless tenacity. In the face of unbeatable odds, they make reckless charges, growling with determination; or take hopeless stands, fighting to the last man. A Child of Anubis will stand over bodies of his fallen comrades until he has beaten back his enemies, or else joined his comrades, dead on the earth. The Children of Anubis often fight chaos, and know that the body of a fallen warrior left behind is one more chaos marine in its armies. Because of their frequent battles with the demonic (plague zombies in particular), they prefer weapons that sever limbs or immolate flesh like swords and axes, flamers and meltas, than weapons that leave the taint behind.

Even if they have been victorious in battle, their duties are not ended. The Children of Anubis are always the last to leave the field. Sometimes they linger for weeks, for they must assist the Apothecaries in their grim task of preparing the fallen of both sides for the afterlife. Their responsibility to the dead transcends mortal allegiances, and all the dead of both sides must be tended to.
