The Prime Absolvers are a Loyalist Space Marine Chapter and a successor of the Dark Angels, created solely from Primaris Space Marines during the Ultima Founding of ca. 999.M41.

Chapter History

Chapter Master Dagiel Harn of the Prime Absolvers first learned of the existence of the Fallen from Supreme Grand Master Azrael himself. A headstrong warrior, he saw no reason for his Chapter brethren to feel the responsibility borne by many of the other Unforgiven successors.

To Dagiel Harn the Fallen are no different than other Traitors. Though he established an Inner Circle for his Chapter and specialised companies (reminiscent of the Dark Angels' Deathwing and Ravenwing), he sees his Chapter's mission as hunting all the Emperor's foes equally.

Chapter Appearance

Chapter Colours

The Prime Absolvers primarily wear blue power armour with deep red on their helm, shoulder pauldron insets, elbow guards, vambraces and gauntlets. Their armourial trim is grey. The Aquila or Imperialis worn on the chest plate is also deep red.

The white squad tactical specialty symbol -- battleline, fire support, close support, Veteran or command -- is indicated on the right shoulder pauldron.

A black High Gothic numeral prominently displayed upon it indicates a battle-brother's assigned squad. The left shoulder pauldron displays the Chapter's iconography.

It is unknown how the Chapter indicates a battle-brother's company assignment.

Chapter Badge

The Prime Absolvers' Chapter badge consists of a white, twelve-spoked wheel, which resembles a "Breaking Wheel," an ancient torture device utilised for public execution by breaking the bones of a criminal or bludgeoning them to death.
