The Crimson Spartans where formed as a Second founting chapter of the Ultramarines soon after the Horus Herasy. there Chapter Master was Caliban Tylon and so soon after there founding they where sent to deal with the Eldar of Bal-tan who where attacking a far reaches Imperial colany byt the name of Joyal. After arriving they set up camp planet side and held of the forces of the Eldar for many months even without orbital support as they where told to hold the planet and the felt that holding orbit was a pointless use of resorses. However this proved to be there undoing as the Eldar surrounded them and let lose a barrage of fire power from orbit untimatly killing Chapter Master Tylon. Tho the Marines managed to flee the planet along with many soilders of the Imperiam the Eldar untimatly captured the planet. It was there desided that every leader of the Crimson Spartans should be named Caliban in honor of it's founder and from there on the Crimson Sparts tactics changed tramtically.

Knowing the flaws of planet side fighting the Spartans exeled in quick sharp strikes from orbit using Thunderhawk Gunships and Drop pods for quick strikes. They became so confidend in there attacks that fleeing was deemed "Unhuman" and deserters where shot without trial. They also forwent a Home world and instead command one of the largest fleets know to the Imperiam with there flank ship atleast twice the size of most.

Unlike most Martine Chapter they take most marines from the Imperial's soilders that they saved form there battle on Joyal. This has resulted in what mean consider a "Tainted" gene seed and as such arn't few highly amoung other Marine Chapters (Most of all the Blood Angels).
