Successors of
Iron Fists Imperial Fists Rogal Dorn Taralus Formed in the 37th Millennium during the 22nd Founding, this Successor Chapter's Astartes are the genetic inheritors of the Imperial Fists Legion. This Chapter is also one of several tied to the genetic legacy of Rogal Dorn that competes in the contest known as the Feast of Blades. The Iron Fists follow many of the same Chapter traditions as the Imperial Fists, and support their Brother-Chapters when called upon for assistance.
