they were created before the Horus Heresy, and therefore their geneseed can still be considered pure enough to retain. however the original TS geneseed became corrupted and had to be expelled.
Thay say it was expelled but the mecanicus still hold geneseeds even tho the hight lords aof terra say there not aloud.

I never understood the whole "corrupted geneseed" thing. Geneseed cannot be corrupted. It is the Emperor's flesh, or at least derived from it. It cannot be corrupted. Only the Marine in which it is implanted. If he (or she, ec. Mountain Angels) becomes corrupted, then the geneseed will slowly subvert it's own genes to become a holder of the corruption, but they can never be corrupted. The Mechanicus were stupid to destroy any of the geneseed of the traitor legions.

How dare you !

It was our beloves Primarch Sanguinius who fought on the Warmasters Battle Barge and gave his life.

It was our chapter that protected Terra itself.

The Emperor is dead. He melted into a pile of ooze about 1000 years after Sanguinius got himself p'wned by Horus. Horus was awesome. He almost killed the Emperor too. If the Emperor didn't weaken Horus by sending thralls like Sanguinius to die on Horus' talon.

It's all about the renegades.

Well it makes sense for the Blood Ravens to be derived in some ways for the Thousand Sons, their large amount of Psykers, devotion to scholarship and research, they have strong ties with the Adeptus Psykana and so on. I really liked the quotes from Ahriman to Brother Rhamah and others from Tempest.

Yeah, it's a pretty sweet plot tie-in for THQ and their Blood Ravens, as Thousand Sons rock. And their pre-heresy stuff is just plain sweet balls.

Oh, and the geneseeds were copied from their Primarchs, not from the Emperor. So if a Primarch was inherently corrupt, his seed would also have that malignancy potential.

I had it figured that the Ravens were from Tson geneseed but where exactly has this been said as fact? I must have missed something...

Well in the book Dawn of War: Tempest, Ahriman pretty much just tells Rhamah (A Blood Ravens libarian) that the Blood Ravens come from the thousand sons, as well as the fact that he is in possession of a book which says/prooves as much, and the original is in the library on Arcadia a Harlequin library-world of law.

I find it funny that THQ actually contradicted itself. In Tempest, the Blood Ravens are Thousand Sons decendants, in Dark Crusade, they're Word Bearers decendants.
