It's their Primarch's sword. It got broken.

Help me out DA folks, I don't know this bit very well, I still call him Lionel Johanson.

The Lion Sword was 'broken' and is currently unaccounted for. Some say Cypher has it, some say it lies beside the comatose body of the Dark Angel Primarch, Lion El Johnson.

The details are something fluffernutters love to argue over, but that's it in a nutshell.

Cypher does have it i believe, its always sheathed and apparently he's heading closer and closer to Terra.

Cypher isn't his real name as well Cypher was the title given to the Dark Angel who is guardian of all the old traditions, if you read Descent of Angels.

The first part is what was said in the old Dark Angels codex and its what i believe to be true, the second part is what i gained from Descent of Angels it can't be a conincidence that the guy with the traditional sword is the name of the rank who guarded the traditions.

Sounds good to me. Sometimes I think GW 'historians' are really just trying to confuse one another, and we just get to play along.
