Default Blood Ravens

Whats the deal with the Blood Ravens? A chapter that doesn't know what Primarch they descended from is quite odd. Also they seem to enjoy the warp a little to much for space marines. Also, whats the deal with them and their whole "Knowledge is power, hide it well" if its power then why not share it?

FOR THE EMPEROR!!!

Well... I COULD tell you, but those pesky Inquisitors would then come a-knockin' and execute you AND your planet...

Dawn of War's poster boys. That's the deal with them.

They're not necessarily alone.

In 40K, if you share power, you tend to end up.... dead.

And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain."

its theorized that their primarch was Magnus the Red cause of somethin in one of the Blood Raven books. a BR had amnesia or something of that nature and when he saw a thousand son sorcerer he went all like "BROTHER!!!". ive never read the book so im just repeating what i recall somebody else saying.

the whole magnus thing would explain their love for the warp and disproportionate number of librarians.

and like cole said about the power. if you know something your enemy doesnt, probably dont even wanna share it with even your friends for fear of the enemy finding out and you losing your advantage.

Rumour has it that they were created from the remnants of whatever loyal Tsons there were post the burning of Prospero. Although how any Tsons remained loyal is completely up for debate, the only way I can see any remaining loyal is if they were elsewhere than Prospero at the time of the Space Wolves attacking.

its possible....I'm all up for that though....it said battle brother fought battle brother so it is very plausible some remained loyal to the imperium. and then were later formed into other loyalist chapters after the initial codices or whatever by Guilliman.

in the dark crusade game, when you attack the Blood Ravens main base they talk about a Unknown Primarch, that cause alot of arguements about the Blood Ravens being a first founding.
Rumor alos has it that the Blood Ravens were part of the 21st founding and half the legion managed to surive but they forget all about themselves, so now there looking for relics and items to remember

or they could be so ashamed of who their primarch was. i really do believe that their primarch is magnus. and iv heard some where when a Tson said knowledge is power i dont remember where but im 100% positive that i read it some where. and why they dont remember i think is because the loyal Tsons never told anyone of their origins and when they died they took the truth with them. if anyone found out that they are from the Tsons they would be most likely disbanded and killed for being from a tratior legion.

I always thought that Blood Ravens where like an Add on chapter lol

EDIT:


--------------

They could also be connected to the TSons because they are fond of magic, and that they have no home world they are on strike cruisers and the homeworld they have was givento them by roboute guilliman I think when he gave them their own chapter and adeptus astartes rules or somthing.

So they could of been off fighting? And got back to find out their primarch betray them, so they fly in strike cruisers. Also their armor is red and magnus was well.. Red.

What is it with you people and Codex chapters being "poster boys"? Are you the poster boys of poster boys?

Anyway, the most likely one is the Thousand Sons theory when you take everything into account.
