Effects of the Cursed Founding
Being of the cursed 21st founding, the chapter has irregularities. The chapter itself was named for the traits the first marines possessed. Their nails were longer and slanted, their hair grew longer and almost became fur, and they possessed an overriding personality of a predatory feline. At most times, the marines are unruly, independent, and wanting to be alone. Other times, they charge recklessly into sometimes suicidal combats, for they feel they must show their pride and dominance. Those few who can control the differences and use them to their advantages take up most authoritarian positions in the chapter, the ones most in control the unflinching Chaplains. Some Captains, like A’ok and 4th Company Captain Loden Marricks fully embrace the fury they posses and always lead from the front, though all commanders of the chapter occasionally do so. Others like Fleet Commander Averon or 10th Company Captain Irobe are more calculating and decisive with their choices. The late and first Chapter Master Zaril has been the only recorded member of the Sabertooth’s to almost fully overcome the irregularities of the chapter.

History:
The chapter began on the planet Erego IV, a lush and prosperous world of the Eastern Fringe. There, Zaril began a competition among the youths to determine who would join his chapter. Named The Carnival of the Sabertooth’s, it consisted of young men fighting odd and ferocious creatures from around the Galaxy and those who could best three would advance to the first stages of becoming a space marine. Though more uniform ways of recruiting new members have been sued, the leaders of the chapter still use The Carnival to this day. When Hive Fleet Kraken descended upon the Erego system, the Sabertooth’s were quick to respond to the threat. They used many ambushes and three-pronged assaults to defeat the Tyranid menace, though it came at the cost of over one hundred Sabertooths. Most recently, and most infamously, the chapter’s 1st and 3rd company had been fighting on Armageddon before the death of Chapter Master Zaril, which tore the heart out of the chapter and has sent them down a twisting path of despair. The Chapter itself has fought many a foe, but on war band that truly has become the nemesis of the Sabertooths are the Beasts of Annihilation. The two forces share the same ferocious fighting style, so the Sabertooths constantly try to prove their might in the art of ambush warfare against the hated foe. Some altercations with the Salamanders have led to aggression in the past, but Tu’shan has put aside differences to provide support for a now devastated chapter.
