Past event – Last stand
Your squad held the walls of a Fortress-Chapel against a massive alien invasion.
Though outnumbered hundreds to one and cut off for weeks, you and your Battle-Brothers fought on until the bitter end.
The Fortress-Chapel was held, and your body alone of your entire squad was pulled from the ruins after the battle, your wounds eventually healing.
After a long investigation, you were cleared of any failure and declared a hero, though you
yourself have never accepted the accolade.
Chapter demeanour – Sons of Dorn
In temperament, Imperial Fists are driven and focused. They study the tenets of the Codex Astartes with almost as much dedication as the Ultramarines, yet there are certain passages their very nature makes it hard for them to fully comprehend.
Whereas the codex teaches the wisdom of a tactical re-deployment, the Imperial Fists will fight on, all but blind to the consequences. While the Ultramarines might consider this characteristic a weakness, it is nonetheless the root of their selfless devotion to the ideals of their Primarch.
When not engaged in battle, the Imperial Fists are often driven to undertake one of several pursuits, or else be consumed by thoughts of potential imperfections or even failures. The same drive that propelled Rogal Dorn to undertake his post-Horus Heresy crusade still slumbers in the hearts of his sons, waiting to emerge in moments of quiet.
In order to silence such doubts, the Imperial Fists immerse themselves in the teachings of their Primarch, the histories of their Chapter, and the study of the art and science of war. When memories of fallen comrades overtake them, some Imperial Fists indulge in the scrimshawing of their bones, honouring the memory of those long-passed. When even these pursuits fail to quiet the mind, the Imperial Fists don the pain-glove and subject themselves to hours of excruciating nerve shriving, emerging hours or even days later cleansed of all doubt and pure of mind.
In battle, the Imperial Fists refuse to take a step backwards or admit a foe’s superiority. They are not mindless berserkers however, and remain disciplined and focused regardless of how desperate a situation might become—they quite literally prefer death to the perceived dishonour of admitting the remotest possibility of defeat. When serving in the Deathwatch, this characteristic might very well cause friction with other Space Marines, especially if a Kill-team leader orders a tactical withdrawal in the face of the enemy. It takes a strong-willed commander indeed to convince an Imperial Fist to withdraw when he sees only dishonour in doing so.

Power armour history – Thy strength be Legend
The raw physical strength of the Adeptus Astartes is already the stuff of legend, which all
power armour further enhances.
This suit, however, makes the bearer’s strength truly titanic.
Such armour has created tales of burning vehicles levered from atop trapped comrades and crumbling buildings supported by the Battle-Brother alone.
The bearer receives an extra +10 bonus to Strength, in addition to the normal bonus granted by power armour.
The Strength bonus from this power armour is added in after the modifications for Unnatural Strength.
