The Sons the of the Dragon chapter were founding in the 19th founding along with Avenging Sons. They were created out of the Salamanders gene seed and many were recruited from Nocturne. The Chapter of roughly 500 marines were sent to what was to be there new home world Furnace. This is in the Northern Ultima segmentum. It is surprisingly like Nocturne with similar mutations on the people like dark skin though there eyes are yellow and almost reptilian like. The Sons of the Dragons on arrival were treated like gods because of their huge posture. After construction took place for Space ports and the Fortress Monastery, Arshank Kan’eek commanded the start of recruiting the Locals.
The Doltaan crusade was crusade that happened 50 years after arriving at Furnace. The 2nd, 3rd and 4th company were sent to the Armistice sector to help fellow chapters the Doom Ravens and Lion el
Johnson’s Vanquishers stop a huge Waaagh that was pushing into the system . Waaagh Gork ‘n’ Snort has been destroying and leaving systems critically damaged. The Lion el
Johnson’s Vanquishers 2nd and 3rd companies were being slowly pushed back to their home system of Vanquisher. They called for aid from the Doom Ravens and the Sons of the Dragon on the Jungle world of Doltaan. Some Dragons (Mainly Veterans) changed their armour colour to dark green and swapped their Bolters for Sniper Rifles. They took up roles of executing major Ork figures including Magrok the ironically titled the ever lastin’. Also to join the Vanguard was the Chapter master Arskank. He also changed the colour of his amour to the dark green. Eventually the force of 700 marines pushed the Orks back.
Though the Sons of Dragon follow the Codex Astartes they do use weapons of the Salamanders Promethean cults and Meltas and Flamers and Hammers and Maces. This supports their combat style and they even have their own form of predator which is equipped with a large Multi Melta called the Predator Prometheus. They also like to use Land Speeders to get to close range as quickly as possible. And support other units.
Like there progenitor chapter the Sons of the Dragon overall have slower reflexes than other space marines (Though this can’t be said for Arken Vul’tan) Also It can be noted that because the chemical implants and similar radiation of that on Nocturne they have jet-black skin and red or yellow eyes. Also there skin is very thick and even some attacks with daggers cannot draw blood. This intimidating mutation has quelled many a rebellion without a single shot.
Before battle like there progenitor chapter they are branded but by Techmarines. They normally have a dragon tooth or claw branded on their back or arm. Only high ranking Space Marines get branded on the forehead.
