The Vindicators was a Loyalist Space Marine Chapter of unknown Founding and a Successor Chapter of the Ultramarines. It was destroyed in the late 41st Millennium during an assault launched by Alpha Legion warbands.
Little is known of the origins of this Successor Chapter of the Ultramarines, save that it was created at some time after the Second Founding. Together with the Crimson Consuls, the Nova Legion and the Marines Mordant, the Chapter shared the responsibility for guarding the rimward frontiers of the Maelstrom Zone -- as the doomed Maelstrom Warders had done with the coreward sectors before the Badab War.
The Vindicators were destroyed alongside their fellow Chapters in a coordinated and harrowing assault launched by Alpha Legion warbands -- amongst them, the Redacted -- led by the Chaos Lord Quetzel Carthach, "the Angelbane."
