Space Marine

I started to write short stories about my space marine chapter and needed some advice on what a space marines personality is like. I kinda figure it's like a cross between a 300 Spartan, a halo Spartan and Soap Mctavish from call of duty mod warfare. Cybernetic leonidas with a bad ass Mohawk. So if you have any ideas postem here, I know that space marines are mindless killing machines but they have to have some sort of personality right?

Depends one what chapter the marines. Read some of the BL books. They arn't mindless killing machines, some are, but not all of them.

Ahab's right, they all have peronalities, even the mindless killing ones.

Id say they are a lot more than just Greek Spartans, Halo spartans (ill assume you mean spartan 2's like master cheif and not the rumoured Spartan class 3 in the new Reach game), and 'Soap' Mctavish. you'd have Knights and religous fighters in the mix as well, Basically they are all the most famous warrior class from history in there.

Uhm Good Space Marines as they said some just like to kill while others are Like Templars just all round badass loyalty to the emperor and will destroy anything that threatens him pretty much so in my opinion Killers,Religous Zealots,and Calm collective Warriors that are cold and have a sense of honor.

On an aside halo reach takes place before the first halo, so chief is actually Spartan 3 that's why he has the most recent mark armor instead of that rediculous fall damage armor. So john, what your saying is they will fight in the shade? My marines are loyal to the man god and pay there dues, though there actions are questioned by the inquisition they still stand by humanity in the struggle for the universe.

Are you sure? Reach happened before the first halo game and master chief is part of the navy.

I am sure. The chief and the other Spartan II had been active for decades prior to the delta halo incident.
