The Savage Swords are a warband of Chaos Space Marines of unknown origins and Founding who have dedicated themselves to the Chaos God Khorne, the Blood God. Currently, they serve the Black Legion as one of Abaddon's many warbands.
The Savage Swords were a formerly Loyalist Space Marine Chapter whose Chapter Master was led down a path of retribution and blood. In 721.M39, he mistakenly believed that the Imperial Governor of Hyboras had stolen the Chapter's ancient relic blade.
His Chapter committed a series of atrocities on that Feral World, but only when the Chapter Master sat on the Governor's gore-stained throne did he realise the full extent of his folly, though by then it was too late. When the Black Legion arrived, the Savage Swords had already fallen to the worship of Khorne and eagerly entered the service of Abaddon the Despoiler.
