The Martyrs Wraith sometimes called the Martyrs Templars by Imperium citizens are a Loyalist Space Marines Chapter Founded sometime in the 35rd Millennium
with some records stating 781.35M but this is not confirmed. There gene-seed is completely unknown although it is believed there grand father chapter is the Ultramarines or the Imperial Fists due to there father chapter, the Phantom Knights have a unique very close but unknown relationship with the Ultramarines that dates back to the 30th Millennium despite there differences and with the Imperial Fists due to the Martyrs Wraith being stubborn like the Imperial Fist, operating and there dedication to the Emperor similar to the Black Templars. It is believed the Martyrs Wraith were created as a standing force to operate in the Seituo Region and to begin a crusade to bring the entire sector under Imperum control however recent records of there foundingsuggest the chapter may have been created to overthrow High Lord of Terra Goge Vandire however this is just a theory by the inquisition. In there first major engagement, there chapter saw extensive action during the Wars of Apostasy where they assaulted the Ecclesiarchal Palace and took heavy casualities, leading to most of there chapter being destroyed as a result however they would not falter and like the Imperial Fists, they would there ground. During one of the many charges, Vanguard Raithan Kal and his vanguard brothers were gunned down leaving only a few. Rathan Kal had taken a bolt round to his head losing his left eye and his power pack was damaged and had ceased to function yet despite all the pain and weight, he would refuse the doors of death's offer until he would slay the Emperor's greatest enemies. As he laid there in his own blood with his mind black as the void, a man in golden armor appeared before him, It was the Emperor who chose not to speak but to show him of the future before leaving Raithan in the darkness once more. Raithan had saw humanities greatest foes and vowed in his mind to destroy every single one in the name of the Emperor even if it would kill him. Raithan then suddenly arose from his presumed grave which a golden aura while faint flickered around his body for a moment then disappearing and letting out a roar
"I AM THE EMPEROR'S WRAITH MADE MANIFEST!"
before inspiring his brothers in cover to fight alongside him to the death in the glorious name of the Emperor! Raithan with his brothers fought for several hours inspiring his brothers to greater feats before finally passing out from the loss of blood and his bones beginning to break due to the weight of his amor. He was later recovered by the black Templars and was treated. When he arose, he demanded to see a black Templar chaplain to which Chaplain Levilicus appeared before moments later where Raithan explained his battle and the vision he encountered after being wounded, the chaplain then checked him for any corruption but found him pure of any taint and was baffled that there was a second Emperor's champion but Raithan refused that title seeing that he was kept alive solely by the will of the Emperor to kill the Imperium Greatest foes until his death and would not rest until his duty was done. He told the chaplain he believed himself to be the Emperor's Wraith for now and forever. Levilicus did not disagree as he saw the Emperor's touch within his eyes and within his power, he summoned High Marshal Sigenandus and decalaired Raithan Kal not as the Emperor's Champion but as the Emperor's Wraith, destined to slay the Emperor's greatest foes until death finally comes for him.
Raithan Kal was then told of his brothers exploits, Although his surviving brothers didn't breech the palace but with his help they were able to kill much of the leadership of the Brides of the Emperor, making them an easier target for there brother chapter. High Marshal Sigenandus then ordered Raithan Kal and the entire Martyrs Wraith chapter to stand down from the crusade as only 200 marines had survived the crusade thus far. Although Raithan Kal hated the thought of withdrawing, Chapter Master Ragnorok the Red Martyr, his surviving Vanguard Martyr's and Raithan himself knew if the chapter would survive, they would have to withdraw from the front in which they did and supported the Imperial Fists and Black Templars in support operation where combat is minimal. Raithan Kal spent most of the time recovering from his wounds.

Home World - Raithan
Raithan was a long lost forge world reclaimed by the Martyrs Wraith Chapter. Raithan is known to have somewhat of a identity crisis as though it's an advanced world that produces large amounts of technologies for the Imperium and the Martyrs Wraith, the culture of Raithan has stayed in a late medieval/Victorian settings. It's common for society to dress in Victorian era clothing yet act like they live in a medieval world with counts and warlords fighting for political power and sending there knightly orders to destroy there enemies but to the people living on Raithan, they know the true rulers are the Martyrs Wraith chapter. While the chapter runs the world directly and keeps order and productivity up, they will not stop all wars as they produce viable recruits for the chapter. As a result the world does not pay the Imperium's tithes as they contribute directly towards the upkeep of the Chapter who in returns keeps order and productivity up. The Chapter and it's astartes are worshipped as demi-gods, serra angels that go out into the voids of space and crusades against the Emperor's enemies and often small shrines and statues of war will be built in there own honour although the chapter heavily enforces the Emperor is above him and must be respected before even them. Every three years, the chapter holds the Emperor's tourney to officially gain new recruits for the chapter, It is very common for dynasties and noble families to put there sons in the tourney so they can bolster they have had a child in there ranks before. It's also common for the youngest to retry multiple tourney's to gain entry in the chapter although this is rare.
Organization and Ranks
The Organization is quite similar to the Black Templars as Every Company is completely independent and is responsible for recruiting, training and there own equipment and vehicles to an extent and are called orders. These companies often called Order can be anywhere from 100 members to a thousand if not more however it is impossible to tell since the entire chapter is constantly on the move crusading in the Imperium to hunt down and destroy it's enemies. An Order is commanded by Vanguard Martyr then his command structure or as the squad leaders are his Templar Veterans following the standard Veterans and there squads. Sometimes a Emperor's Vanguard or an Emperor's Wraith can be in the company and while they hold no true power in the company, there word is highly respected and often second in command although most hate these leadership positions.
Squires- Neophytes basically but have received all implantations and stay squires for years unlike regular scouts and Neophytes. They are appointed to a Veteran SM and help in all matters from cleaning and maintaining there armor and weapons to running orders and messages to other squads. They are not put into there own company.
Veteran - Standard rank for the chapter but are considered veterans by other chapters as most with this rank are 200-300 years old and have mastered all forms of combat. They fill all roles
Templar Veteran - Veterans who is currently in a crusading company and has been crusading for years and have gained enough experience to be sergeants or sometimes captains. They are often 500-700 in years
Vanguard - Veterans which are basically like the Emperor's Champion with reciving visions from the Emperor or some form of Divinity however these SM's are often put into regular squads where they are used to assault where the enemy is thickest, to hunt down and eliminate the leaders or to shatter defense lines. They are often the most skilled and deadly SM's in the chapter. There age can be anywhere from 100- 700 years in age
Vanguard Martyr - A veteran who has served in a Vanguard unit for centuries and survived so many battles while also showing extensive leadership abilities to keep his brothers alive that he has been given control of the Company. They are the living avatar/saints of the chapter and are esstianly captains to other chapters. Age can anywhere but are usually old
Emperor's Vanguards - A very small unit comprised entirely of Space Marines that are the direct descents of the orginal Emperor's Vanguard that fought alongside Raithan Kal. The Emperor's Vanguard act as a council to the Martyr Commander as they give there word on what Raithan Kal would of done in the current situation. They also work as chaplains, spreading the work and wisedom of Raithan Kal to the brothers of the chapter to remind them to what they must live up to and become even better. A Emeror's Vanguard is made when an existing Emperor's Vanguard takes on a squire(Not usually but anyone from the chapter they deem worthy) and teaches them the wisdom of Raithan Kal and the Emperor as well as mastering his combat style and methods. They are also taught to be the next spiritual leaders of the chapters as well as chanting the Chapter's sacred battle creeds, and inspiring their brothers to greater feats of bravery. unlike most of the chapter, they don black armor similar to the Emperor's Wraith taking on the look as a Dark Knight. they carry on the legacy on Raithan Kal and only do they know the true story of there legendary hero.
(Raithan Kal as an Emperor's Wraith)
Vanguard Champion/Emperor's Wraith - Are Vanguards that have turned down promotion to Vanguard Champion in favor of bringing glory to the Chapter almost exactly like the Black Templars Emperor's Champion however they keep there tittle usually till death. While an Emperor's Wraith is rare and share no power, most space marines of the chapter will consider there words and actions as heavy as the Martyr Commander as they often have the same experience in battle and war but have also been touched by the Emperor himself which can cause damage to the chapter at times. As with the Emperor's Champion, they don there armor black and gold as the Emperor's colors with the Emperor's symbol on there shoulders, only keeping there shoulder pads the color of there chapter's primary color.
Martyr Commander(prob come up with a better name) - Is the chapter master of the chapter, only a Vanguard Martyr can become a Martyr Commander and there is only one at a time obviously lol
Chapter Combat Doctrine-
The Chapter fleets has honed the ability to have entire solar systems surrender at the sight of there vassals as to either put terror or awe into the face of the enemy. If this doesn't work they often attacked by a bombardment staged by strike vessels or battle barges in orbit over and enemy positions.
Once on the ground by either drop pods or thunder hawks, The chapter will often enter close combat often with power weapons and steam roll the enemy after shattering the weakest link in there defense line or might just perform a head on assault if lead by an Emperor's Wraith
The Chapter respects the Emperor above all others but do not worship him as a god however they do believe the Emperor guides the chosen few of the chapter to lead the chapter to the Emperor's greatest foes to be slain. Because of this, the members of the chapter often believe the Emperor will protect them when they launch there assaults so stealth tactics are often frowned apon. They equally respect all the primarches as they do not know which primarch they originate from. Since they believe they are the Emperor's Wraith, they take great pride in their badge and livery, some take this pride to such an extreme they regard anything that hides them as a form of cowardice and is common mock battles to happen between chapters. One of the major points is that the Martyrs Wraith pay more respect to there heroes then the Emperor and the Primarches, especially Raithan Kal who became the first Emperor's Wriath and will often spend hours preying and respecting the fallen as well as the heroes of the chapter.
Lastly the chapter takes on what Raithan Kal did in his life time and take his actions very seriously to the point where the chapter firmly believes he's the greatest warrior to come out of there chapter and is one of the mightiest of the space marines to live and will fight to defend his honor. As a result of respecting him, many members of the chapter look up to him as a role model, trying to be like him as well as study his history and combat style with his relic power claymore. Many believe him to be dead however a few believe the Emperor's Wraiths are reincarnations of him to which the Emperor's Vanguard frown upon.
it is common for the chapter to have master cafted weaponry and even rare weapons such as an abunce of power swords and powered combat shields and other equipment. The Chapter does not have terminator suits since they enjoy the agility and speed of regular suits, as a result they have a large collection of artificer power armor either built on the frontlines over years of fighting or from Raithan. As with there father chapter, they have access to Mark 8 Errant armor in which there veterans often use while Vanguards often use older marks and Templar helmets designate there rank. Before battle however all weapons and armor are blessed so they might strike true and avoid the worst situations.
Chapter Relics -
Phantom Mark Artificer Armor "Praetorate" - Is the artificer armor of the Voldemort Titus Victorinus. The Praetorate lays its origins in the great crusade where it was a completely new mark of power armor that was designed and built for one of the legions but unknown to who. This new mark Armor only known as the Phantom Mark Armor by the Ultramarines and there father chapter, the Phantom Knights is an advanced MK II suit designed to be less protective then the standerd MK II and MK III but the user is extremely lightweight and with a dozen new features built in the armor, made the suit extremely effective in refined close quarters combat. The most advanced and notable feature was the Burst system in the helmet where activated, a machine would alters the user's brain and bring the user enter into a state of enhanced awareness and peak physical ability. While in this state, the Astartes demonstrates heightened reflexes and extremely quick information processing where they go far beyond there mental and physical(not strength wise though)limits. This ability is usually triggered by will by Astartes who have heavily meditated before battle so they don't lose control or by unitently by extreme combat situations or from recalling significant traumas, often triggered to protect a vital position from overwhelming odds, to destroy a powerful enemy or failing to protect a brother who had died.
Excabilur - A supremely master crafted Paragon Blade Mark Relic Power Sword who's origins stats it was crafted during the Great Crusade on Torionis who's location has been lost to time while it's crafter is completely unknown although some ancient records state it was crafted by a primarch with the help of an long destroyed xeno warrior race. The Excaliblur when activated, extends energy blades on each sides of the blade becoming a physical and beam weapon. The full extent of this sword's power is completely unknown as few have wielded it in combat since it's creation and fewer have lived long enough to experience it's full power. Voldemort Titus Victorinus currently wields it after there father chapter, the Phantom Knights gifted it to him for his service with the Emperor and with the chapter.
Voldemort Titus Victorinus
Voldemort Titus Victorinus known throughtout the Imperum as 'The Emperor's Chaplain" and "The Emperor's Will and Wraith" is the current Martyr Commander of the Martyrs Wraith. Like Lord Commander Dante of the Blood Angels, He is one of the most longed lived, most experienced and one of the most able of the Adeptus Astartes Despite the fact he is the first Martyr Commander in two millennia to personality led his chapter from the front and actively lead on the battlefield. It is unknown how old he is but some records hold him 1,300 years old but these few reports are unreliable, it is best to rival Lord Commander Dante in age however. Voldemort is one of the few Chaplains out of the entire existence of the Astartes race to become a Chapter Master of a chapter and it quite shows in him. Voldemort Has been the only Astartes in the history of the Martyrs Wraith to receive the Emperor's Vision and declined to become an Emperor's Wraith so that he could properly manage and lead his chapter as the current Martyr Commander and as a result, he is often called the "Emperor's Will and Wraith" by many of his race.
Voldemort is like many of his brothers has became zealous, cold blooded towards most and stubborn to the point of no return. The man trust no one besides his brothers and shows no respect to those he deems unworthy or hasn't his respect as he is a man of action and of little of words. As a Martyr Commander, he is severe as well as fearsome while he has a commanding presence. Voldemort is harsh with his subordinates brothers and peers and is merciless to his enemies, even more so then then most Astartes. On the battlefield, his is known for his cuss sharp mouth and is highly combative for his brothers, often leading those into battle against impossible odds just to completely destroy the enemy and shows of his fiery violence especially towards enemies or his brothers if theyfail to live up to his high standards and staunch adherence to his "survival of the fittest" philosophy. He shares no mercy or tolerance for any weakness or willpower in the enemy or brothers as he will not hesitate to kill them especially if there faith of the Emperor is not strong and has done this many times with Imperium Forces and even few times with fellow chapters. Voldemort is extremely perceptive and adaptive as he is able judge person or action to take next that will lead to the best result. Despite being harsh however, Voldemort does know his own weakness and know his limitations as he understands he
requires the support of his brothers and other men and women of the Imperum in order to succeed and, though Voldemort understands that sacrifice is often a necessary part of his endeavors, never forgets the weight and impact that each person has on the world. As such, Voldemort takes his commanding role very seriously and has earned the undying loyalty his brothers with his leadership approach to lead on the front. For all those he respects and for those he leads, he is a selfless individual, prone to taking great risks in order to protect the lives and well-being of those who have placed their trust in him even if it would risk in his death.
Ragnorok the Red Martyr
Founder and Fist Chapter Master of the Chapter, Was originally Captain of the 1st Company of the Phantom Knights.Ragnorok was widely known throughtout the Imperium by it's citizens and was regarded as a Martyr as he would often put his own life on the line to save Imperial Lives and would never a brother or an Imperial Citizen behind and would often survive battles where most die, eventually he believed the Emperor had guided him and any who followed him to safety. When a new chapter was to be founded, Ragnorok volunteered to lead this chapter believing the Emperor had wanted him and brothers like him to travel across the Imperium and protect it's citizens. Ragnorok was considered old fashion, stubborn but yet honorable which earned the respect of many Astartes he would meet. Ragnorok was Oath Brothers with Raithan Kal and shared close bond as a result even for Astartes standards. During the Unova Crusade, Ragnorok was fately wounded during a battle with a deamon prince and was entombed in a dreadnought where even today he still serves.
Raithan Kal- Already explained lol
The first Emperor's Wraith that became famous during the Terran Crusade when he suffered multiple wounds such as
taking a bolt round to his head losing his left eye and his power pack was damaged and had ceased to function. It saids after he was gunned down and laid on the ground wounded that he received a vision of the Emperor's greatest foes that posed the greatest threats to humanity. It is said Raithan then vowed to the Emperor he would he would hunt down these enemies and slay just as Sigismund did but would not stop until he would die. Raithan then suddenly arose from his presumed grave which a golden aura while faint flickered around his body for a moment then disappearing and letting out a roar and inspiring his brothers in cover to fight alongside him to the death in the glorious name of the Emperor. Raithan with his brothers fought for several hours inspiring his brothers to greater feats before finally passing out from the loss of blood and his bones beginning to break due to the weight of his amor. He was recovered by the Black Templars, treated and declared the Emperor's Wraith by a Chaplain of the Black Templars after being told of his experience. Following the Terran Crusade, Raithan Kal fought on many fronts with his chapter slaying every leader, every champion in single combat until he one day he exiled himself from his chapter felt as his chapter relied to much on his strength to bring victory to the Imperium. Raithan Kal decided he would leave his chapter by self exile and hunt down the Emperor's greatest foes on his own.
At 700 years old, is The Emperor's Wraith of the Reclomus Order and is renown as being zealous, cold blooded stubborn as a black Templar. Severus is a horrifying sight even for an Astartes as he takes every action very seriously. Some say he fights as a world eater, ripping apart the Emperor's enemies and leaving nothing but the blood and the entrails on his armor. Severus was known to have worked with the Black Templars on multiple battles and is highly respected by them. His chapter worries he's became more of a black Templar then there own as he discarded the chapters liverly and color in exchange to wear the Emperor's colors but everyone his dedicated to the Emperor and being his wraith is surpreme. Recently he has disappeared however
The Emperor's Wraith of the Erivaa Order, Seraris exploits are legend on Raithan is considered the second coming of there founder,Ragnorok the Red Martyr. A man extremely dedicated to the Emperor as his wraith but also staying dedicated to his chapter, he has inspired his entire chapter in hundreds of battles and becoming a legend of his chapter, to charge into the heart of the enemy but yet risk his own life to save his brothers or rescue any citizen incapable of defending himself. Known throughout the Imperium as a Hero to the common man while being honorable and following a code of chivalry. He has recently disappeared however.
The Emperor's Wraith and sole survivor of the Severutho order. Draco became renowned for boarding and leading the entire Severutho Order into the hive ship Hive Fleet Korra with the Black Templars and the Order of Our Martyred Lady aid and with the Severutho Order's sacrifice, the Hive ship was completely destroyed at the destruction of the Entire order with only with Draco surviving although it is unknown how he survived. After Hive Fleet Korra was driven off and his entire order destroyed, Draco Iseas decided to depart for Cadian with the Black Templars and the Order of Our Martyred Lady and is currently fighting with both in the 13th Black Crusade. Draco been accused by the Inquisition as being corrupted by chaos for calling the Emperor "The Corpse Emperor" and does not pay respect to the primarches, only respecting those who he had fought with and earned his respect. He like Severus he is cold blooded, zealous stubborn and terrifying sight for many but he is an honorable man and takes his vows and oath's very seriously.
Is the half dead 900 year old Emperor's Wraith of the Farah Company before it was completely destroyed along with a half of a Company of Imperial fists. It was presumed for years that he had died in the final assault on the Chaos fortress on Muslio with the Farah company and an Imperial Fist company. After the gates were tore off, He led his order and the Imperial fists deep into the fortress until finally facing a a greater deamon of black and white. Leading his brothers into battle, they fought on heroically inflicting mortal wounds on The greater demon however it had destroyed the order, nearly destroyed half of the company of the Imperial Fist before killing Vanguard Martyr Farah before mortally wounding Amadeus himself. Similer to Raithan, he watched his entire order fell while being mortally wounded himself. no matter how many times he was struck down and continued to bled out, he kep rising and continuing to inspire his imperial fist's brothers to feats of greater feats until he personal led the final assault knowing he will most likely die in the assault. It is not known what had transpired in the final assault but what it said he had cleaved the monster in half before nearly dying of his wounds before the Apothecaries had treated his wounds. Amadeus wounds were horrifying even for his race and many believe he would not die as multiple organs began to fail and would require implants to continue his duty. The Apothecaries offered Amadeus "The Emperor's Peace" as they believed he not survive the surgery required to save him but Amadeus only cussed at them say
"There can never be any peace, only war and am the Emperor's Wraith, I shall only lay my sword down for when the Emperor's greatest foes lay dead below my feet!"
Seeing the fires in his eyes, the Apothecaries began the surgery and while it might of killed any mortal man or even an Astartes, Amadeus's will refused to let him die despite never feeling such pain. After many surgeries, Amadeus was more machine then man but despite this, he arose and after a short while to adapt to his body, he would continue to serve the Emperor as the Emperor's Wraith. Seeing his order destroyed and with no way of communication with the chapter, the Imperial Fists offered Amadeus to come with them and to lead them into battle as the Emperor's Wraith as he had earned there respect through sacrifice. Amadeus agreed and departed with the Imperial Fists. Until recently, he was presumed KIA until he was spotted leading the Imperial Fists into battle during the 13th Black Crusade and making contact with Draco Iseas with the Black Templars.
Amadeus is a typical member of his chapter, very honorable and stubborn yet he is like an howling griffon where it is common for him to oaths and vows he intends to complete. Despite his order being destroyed,becoming an Emperor's Wraith and now serving with the Imperial Fists, he had chosen to keep his chapters colors and symbol as well as adding the symbols of the Emperor's symbol and the Imperial Fist badge a show of respect for both sides. Although it is unclear where he comes from, many Imperial Fists that have fought with him, consider him a true son of Dorn and a worthy brother to die alongside.
