The Blood Spears Are a second founding chapter who for a small amount of time we're a Space based chapter similar to the Black Templar and Blood Ravens Untill roughly 650 Years after their founding a Freak Warp storm Battered their fleet destroying fully half the chapter outright and heavily damaging all of their resources and mobility. The Chapter master at the time Azeleiyon decided that to protect and rebuild the chapter they would attempt to find a suitable planet and make it their own. The remainder of the fleet 2 BattleBarges and 3 Strike Cruisers began searching for their new home Which they found in the form of a small planet in synchronous orbit around its sun, thus providing permanent day at a temperature of roughly 69 Degree's while the opposite side is a mottled mix of Forests of thermoreactive plants and Barren Ice Fields They Immediately Christened the Planet Therapaeloy.
Thus began the slow rebuilding and fortifying process the chapter selected an enormous mountain Near in hight to the famed Fang of Fenris ,but not quite matching it, as their fortress monestary and immediately began the tedious process of sculpting quarters, tactical rooms and other required operating quarters into the mountain. The slowly forming fortress was Dubbed Asphodae. The mountain fortress while not the towering pinnicale that the fang is has the unique trait that it is perfectly round and straight starting at the base exactly 71.869 KM in Diameter to a hight of roughly 37 KM it is entirely unblemished natural occuring Adamantium polished to a mirror sheen by the desert winds. Once their Monestary was complete its Spearlike vissage a testiment to human perservearence the began their recruiting their first native initiates.
The Blood Spears had a enormous impact on the native populous. When the Space marines arrived the humans already on the planet had long since been forgotten by the rest of the galaxie their culture falling back into a feral tribe existance but the Space Marines (remembered as Warriors of the Gods in local myths) who arrived in each of the thermoreacive rainforests that we're safe...ish havens from the largers predators that stalked both the desert and the Ice wastes. Slowly with repeated visits the tribes in each of the patches of forest solidified into City-States nestled into each of these forests. Every 100 years or so the messengers return and conduct trials at each of the city states but that is not enough for some people. For those the Blood Spears Set up Verisas, The Gateway City, with series of way stations 3 weeks apart along the desert. Those who survive martching through the perpetual day for 3 weeks at a time from the nearest spot on the terminator line to the base of Asphodae are evaluated for a molecular match if they can possibly survive the implantation process they are immediately inducted into the ranks of initiates if not they are given a place of honor high amongst the Chapter Serfs.
Since the creation of their fortress They have fought hard to preserve the Emporer's realm and above all to protect humanity. Through a long line of chapter masters and hero's the Blood Spears have defended humanity all over the galaxy from any threat from the Treacherous Eldar to the brutish orcs and the Sadistic forces of Chaos, and the will continue to do so for as long as there is a single marine left alive.
