Default The Dark Shadow

Heres another Chapter by me, SMRCommander!

The Dark Shadow

The Dark Shadow is a chapter with a dark and detailed history. They were originally part of the Ultramarines Legion, breaking off into a divergent chapter. Nearly falling into darkness, they thought many times of throwing of oaths to the Emperor and of pledging allegiance to the False Gods. But their Chaplains saved them and constantly battled chaos influence at every turn. However, battles with Inquisiterorial forces weakened them. Much of their fast equipment had been destroyed by Kill-Teams, and the 9th and 8th companies were completely wiped out. All but a few drop pods were destroyed. Last, the Chapterís home world of Anagia was destroyed.
The first priority was to find a new home world and avoid the Grey Knights. To prove their loyalty to the Emperor, they took a world controlled by Chaos forces. After cleansing it, they established bases and named the world Anagia II after there last home world, and thus settled this planet. Then began the rebuilding of the 9th and 8th chapters. Making stealth runs, they quietly recruited Neophyte after Neophyte. In the meantime, they decided that the chapter would have to give up fast attack combat due to severe lack of equipment. They decided to instead focus on training their Marines to become above average, as so they could fend off Inquisitorial forces if needed. The training included how to fight in close combat even better than most marines, so to fend off deadly Grey Knight assaults. Also was to master stealth, as to not be seen and to avoid fights. However the Chapter wind up putting this training into making useful ambushes and getting up close for assaults.
They did in fact battle the Grey knights a few times during these dark hours. But this proved to be actually helpful; they could often commit more of their Marines than the Grey Knights could. Overwhelming them in several battles, they defeated them and then took their equipment. This was looked down upon, but the chapter deemed it very much needed. After a century of this, they managed to settle peace with the Inquisitorial Forces, though still to this day they keep a close eye on these dark warriors.

I like the fluff, but would the Inquisitorial Forces really give peace? From what I have read, once the Inquisitorial Forces get the idea that something is evil, they wouldn't really talk to chaos forces about peace. (not saying they are chaos force)

Thank you for your time.

But also added they fact that they kill Grey Knights... It would be very hard (nigh impossible) to gain the favor of the Inquisitorial Forces again, maybe aided the Imperial Fists? Or destroyed a Greater Daemon?
