The Imperial Talons is a Loyalist, Codex Astartes-compliant Space Marine Chapter. It is suspected that it is one of the rare Successor Chapters of the Raven Guard. Its exact Founding date is unknown. Unfortunately, at this time almost nothing is known about the Chapter in Imperial records beyond its name and Chapter appearance.
The Imperial Talons primarily wear red Power Armour. The Aquila or Imperialis on the chest plate is white. The white squad specialty symbol -- Tactical, Assault, Devastator or Veteran -- is indicated on the right shoulder guard. A white Roman numeral located on the inside of the shoulder plate, next to the squad specialty symbol indicates squad number. The colour of the shoulder plate trim indicates company number in accordance to the Codex Astartes -- i.e. White (1st Company), Yellow (2nd Company), Red (3rd Company), Green (4th Company), etc.
The Imperial Talons' Chapter badge is a large stylised white talon of a bird of prey, centred on a field of red.
