Their Primarch is Lion El'Jonson a. Their Primarch happened to be named after a homosexual poet who wrote a poem called "The Dark Angel" and might've dated Oscar Wilde. They were the posterboys for both 6E and Citadel's "new" line of paints. Fuck yeah, we guess? Except the Lion.
Interestingly, they also employ retainers known as the Watchers in the Dark. Thanks Lord Commander Guilliman. However, one reason they and their successors work together so well is likely due to the fact that the pre-heresy Dark Angels Legion was already assembled out of chapters. After the heresy, they merely needed to give the chapters names instead of numbers and have the chapters adopt different heraldry and colors; as such, the Dark Angels and their successor chapters might still be functionally and unofficially a more-or-less cohesive Legion.
Much like the Ultrasmurfs, the Dark Angels have some of the most stable gene-seeds of all the progenitor chapters, with no significant mutations documented. Due to this and the fact that they were the first Legion produced by the Emperor, they remain one of the most favorable ones to use for founding successor chapters. Although, the High Lords are supposedly iffy about using the DA's gene seed due to the rumors that all Dark Angel successors stay in one command structure with the Dark Angels still calling the shots, effectively all of their descendant chapters still act as part of a legion.
Never-the-less, because there's no official proof of this, the Inquisition cannot call an Exterminatus on the Rock. This trait manifests exponentially as a Dark Angel ascends toward the rank of Company Master. Such officers can plan a campaign to the last detail, execute faultless assaults, and assemble impenetrable defenses instinctively. Central to this ability is the deployment of the correct mix of squads, vehicles and support elements.
To this end, the Dark Angels form strike forces — self-contained armies assembled to prosecute a specific campaign or defeat a particular foe. This has precedent in earlier fluff such as the battle for Rynn's World, where the death of Crimson Fists nearly killed a nearby librarian.
Unlike more warlike chapters like the Space Corgis or the Black Templars who would go into battle screaming about how they're going to skullfuck the enemies of man, the Dark Angels go into battle in cold, efficient silence, somewhat similar to that of Angry Marine Terminators who are so enraged that they march into battle with stone hearts and steel faces. In fact, their "Repent! For tomorrow you die! The original Dark Angels had black armour, back in the days of the Corvus pattern helmets. Modern Dark Angels instead use a dark green colour, except for the Deathwing and Ravenwing companies, which are composed entirely of bone-white Terminators and black Fast Attack units respectively.
They were introduced in the Deathwing expansion to 1st edition Space Hulk with a spiffy background story by Bill King. Due to a slight mutation in their gene-seed , the Dark Angels had a slight predisposition to be shy , but other than that, they are cool. Veterans wear robes and capes and such on the field of battle representing any number of ritualistic ranks and titles that are mostly unknown to those outside of the Chapter but harken back to the traditions of "The Order".
Plus they look pretty awesome. Not simply a Legion numbered "one", they were quite literally the First legion created by the Emperor and in their earliest incarnation fought as the personal army of the Master of Mankind in the dawning years of the Great Crusade. HH: Extermination tells us that as the prototype Legion the Dark Angels served as the template for all the Legions that would follow after which the Emperor decided to make the following legions more specialised and engineered their development towards different roles, and as a standard by which these successors would be measured however they would eventually get supplanted by the empire-building Ultramarines when times changed.
So basically the Emperor simply intended the First Legion to sally forth and "just be Space Marines". That meant the Dark Angels had to figure out warfare all on their own, and the techniques they developed would have entire Legions built upon those principles when they were raised later on.
One of the key strengths of the First legion seems to have been their ability to adapt and change things up when needed. Not every battle can be fought the same way, especially when considering the varied and unique opponents that exist within the galaxy, so the ability to tailor your forces to deal with a wide variety of opponents seems like it might actully be a pretty good idea. Like the Dark Angels of 40k who dont really specialise in any single form of combat, but actully prefer to create tailor fitted strike forces to deal with any given opponent, the existance of the hexagrammaton in 30k provides the First Legion with a great deal of flexibility.
When confronted with a situation that requires a more specialised touch the Dark Angel in command can hand operational control over to the highest ranking member of one of the wings. A call will go out across all the First Legion forces present for all members of the Wing to gather and pool their combined specialized skills and equipment in order to bring ruin to the enemy.
Unlike legions like the Death Guard who preferred to keep their legions as a single whole, the First Legion seems to have given Legion forces that are operating away from the main body a bit more freedom to think for themselves. This would allow the Legion to continue to operate independently, even if they may have been cut off from the rest of the Legions command, this would also allow them to operate in a far greater number of theaters of war across the Great Crusade; this would normally be considered a good thing, but this is 40k and "freedom of thought" can only lead to bad things.
The wings were originally organised into six hosts, collectively known as the hexagrammatron and run across and through the normal Dark Angels structure of orders, chapters, and companies similar to how the DA company veterans work in 40k and every Dark Angel from the lowest to the highest is a member of one of the wings. They were made this way so they could fight in any conceivable situation. A Dark Angels membership to a particular wing seems to not only be based on their abilities but also their personality, attitude, and personal mind set; for example the Dreadwing are made up of the most brutal, destructive, and warmongering members of the Dark Angels whilst the Ravenwing if they are anything like their 40k counterparts are made up of the most impulsive, wild by DA standards , and inquisitive members being a speed freak helps.
How they are designated into each wing is unknown Guilliman noted that there were also many secret orders and mysterious hierarchies within the ranks of the Dark Angels; hierarchies of knowledge, trust, and authority invisible to outsiders. Alongside the Orders, secret Hosts and Wings there was also mention of Thrones and Powers, whatever the hell they were. Seraphim, 2. Cherubin, 3.
Thrones 4. Domininations, 5. Virtues, 6. Principalities, 8. Archangels, 9. Angels, with the lowest "Angels" being the standard battle brother. In this fashion, acting all on their own without support from the other legions that followed they killed lots of Orks and other xenos scum for great justice and were the most successful Legion during the early years of the Crusade.
Once the most numerous and powerful of the legions, their numbers would be depleted by decades of savage warfare, particularly in the wars of the Rangdan Xenocides where their numbers fell below , after they lost almost 50, marines preventing the destruction of the entire northern Imperium by an unknown menace from the outer darkness. The scars of these battles would change them, as would their reunification with their Primarch and his adopted world of Caliban.
Unyielding, technologically capable, ruthless, and insular the Dark Angels by the time of the Heresy were once again a powerful and highly independent Legion used to operating on its own to conduct large scale campaigns and compliance actions. When the Legion was first reunited with their Primarch, the massive influx of warriors into the Legion following the rediscovery of Caliban was able to provide the First with an additional 20, new Dark Angels.
He began by cancelling the deployment of new recruits to the Legion. He would also reduce the time it took to implant and train new legionaries to about two years, so by mid-heresy there were around 45, new Dark Angels on Caliban who were swearing oaths of fealty not to the Emperor but to Caliban and the Order. Not everyone was pleased with this, especially those who had originated from Terra.
Some time during the Crusade some planetary ruler insulted Leman Russ and he got all pissy about it. Then Lion ended up killing the leader and Leman was like "Whatchu do that fo' fool? And Lion was like "fuck off, furry," despite his own furtastic name and his dickish kill-stealing. Leman, never being good with words, reason, or sobriety, megaton punched the Lion. The two of them fought for a day or two, an epic struggle between cool-headed tactician and hot-blooded barbarian, douchebag and bro-tard. Then Leman said "this is stupid" and started laughing In true anime fashion, after Leman regained consciousness and was less-inebriated, the two eventually became best buds and treated it as water under the bridge; their respective chapters still carry on the friendly rivalry, a pair of champions engaging in sacred and non-fatal honour duels whenever the Spess Lions and Space Corgis meet.
One particular incident during the Heresy had a member of the watch-pack that had been sent to keep an eye on Guilliman being paired off against the Lion himself after the wolves pushed the issue. And a couple of light years away, the Tyranids eat a planet while two of the most important Space Marine chapters waste time on this Nerf-chainsword-duel-honour-bullshit because that's how they roll. Stopping off at Macragge to kick Roboute Guilliman out of inaction and start actually paying attention to the Horus Heresy.
In fact, despite all of the mystery surrounding the intentions of the First Legion, the Emperor still had complete faith in them. A discussion between Him and Malcador the Sigillite during Graham McNeill 's Vengeful Spirit proves that even the Emperor expected Guilliman to procrastinate and start building his own Empire and they were somewhat relieved when Russ told them that the Lion had intervened. We suspect this to be the work of foul traitors. The remaining Dark Angels painted their armor green as penance and because green was the shit back then.
They are known for mysteriously appearing out of nowhere to aid Imperial forces and disappearring just as fast, even if the forces they were aiding were still in need of their help. This has led to much complaint from Imperial commanders who are often understandably pissed off.
He was last publicly seen barking mad from Chaos withdrawing its influence from him. But his ramblings have occasionally assisted the Dark Angels in and locating lost relics within the Rock. Recently, he's been claiming that the time for the Lion to return and absolve the Chapter of its past is growing closer After his duel with Luther we, the Watchers in the Dark, brought him to a hidden chamber in the depths of the Rock so he could be healed of his wounds.
He is fully healed, and now all that is needed for the last loyal Primarch to return is for the Emperor to give him the signal to do so. When the legion first arrived back at Caliban during the Scouring they would have been unaware of the events that had led up to Astelan ordering the attack on the fleet. After the destruction of Caliban they would have found themselves in a position where they had not only lost their Emperor and their Primarch but their home world as well.
Set after the events in Terminator 2: Judgment Day , Sarah Connor and her son, John, try to stay under-the-radar from the government, as they plot to destroy the computer network, Skynet, in hopes of preventing Armageddon. Hercules, aided by his best friend Iolaus, goes on many adventures helping people and slaying mythical monsters using his half-god strength. Searching for others of her kind who were scattered in the aftermath of her escape, Max encounters Logan, an idealistic cyber-journalist battling repression and corruption in post-apocalypse America.
Eventually, Logan calls her to the highest part of her being and Max becomes his samurai as the pair takes on the ruthless power-brokers of the new millennium. Max and Logan's odyssey leads them closer to the secret of her past, deepening and complicating their relationship in the process. Written by ahmetkozan.
The opening to this pilot was great; it had intrigue, suspense, a bunch of persecuted kids you could come to care about. The people are just too coiffed, too smart-mouthed, too slick, too cliche. The dialog is trite, and most of the actors, including Alba, mumble like they've got marbles in their mouths. It's a terrible waste of a good idea, and a waste of John Savage's talents. The overlying scenario of a magnetic pulse that could wipe out all binary information, thereby throwing the planet into chaos and economic distress, was believable. It's too bad the characters were so unbelievable.

The same happened a year later with her second husband who also died of "intestinal problems" , and it would eventually be discovered that Cotton was poisoning her partners and their children with arsenic so that she could reportedly collect money upon their death.
As ChronicleLive explains, her poison of choice was tasteless, and mimicked the symptoms of "common medical conditions such as gastroenteritis or dysentery". Often referred to as Britain's first serial killer, Cotton preceded two other female killers as historical author Linda Stratmann explained to the Telegraph in Betty Eccles, suspected of several murders by arsenic, was hanged in ," she said.
