[ERROR] No.21798595 [Reply] [Original] [4plebs] [archived.moe]

Rarely seen fighting in open battle, the Astartes Mafius deviate from the Codex, preferring to deep-strike two or three Marines along with a higher-ranking officer to the enemies' HQ, to present them with 'an offer they cannot refuse'. Details of such offers are sketchy, but common knowledge is that enemy leaders that refuse are more often than not never seen again.

Other Astartes chapters, prefer not to deal with them unless absolutely necessary. They have been under suspicion for Tzeentch worship before, but these rumours were quickly dismissed after several of the Mafius visited high-ranking members of the Inquisition. Two died in 'unfortunate accidents', the others changed their minds unusually quickly, citing 'they're not such bad people when you get to know them', and sporting very fashionable fur coats.

>Continued from >21797154 since things got sidetracked

>> No.21798615

>>21798595

Another oddity of the Astartes Mafius are the careers of those who align themselves with them. Many high-flyers on Terra and beyond have been relative nobodies who performed unknown 'services' for the Mafius and as such found themselves in high-paying, high-power positions shortly thereafter. Several Rogue Traders have known ties with the Mafius, turning to them for help with uncooperative planetary governors or for help cutting through the light-years of red tape concerning the Administratum.

The gene-seed of the Mafius is often referred to as 'The Family', and Mafius offer no trust or even general communication to outsiders not known to their battle-brothers.

That they make powerful allies is of no doubt, their terror tactics unusual yet extremely effective. Known to fund other chapters or High Lords even without their knowing, they play the political game as shrewdly as they do their warfare, sporting 'Tomus'-Pattern bolters with extended-capacity drum magazines. In open combat, when forced to the situation, they prefer ambush and disinformation tactics, up to and including creating purely fictitious financial and military fronts to conduct their business.

To say the Mafiosus are unusual is to stretch the term, even their naming systems for individuals goes against the grain. Almost all brothers take a new name following their initiation, usually based on a distinguishing feature or special talent, such as 'Larrus the Hat', 'Marius Screws' or 'Bolty'.

Tutto bene, but you know, if you make this family of Marines, and they work in this business, then they must abide by the rules of the business. That is, you must pay your respects to the Supreme Overlord of Commorragh.

There are two ways to do this:
1) Serve Vect loyally. You can take in the business openly, and one day, though this day may never come, Vect will ask you a favor. And you will do that favor.
2) Defy Vect. Your family will never know peace, your business will never grow beyond a certain size, and you will never be a made man, if you choose this path. You can only live if you are beneath his notice, or furthering his schemes.

Now, I shouldn't say this, but most of the money in town, they try and work out option 3) Serve Vect openly and defy Vect secretly. Not everyone who gets in the business wants to end up doing this, but most do this eventually. And, hey, somebody's gonna off the old man one day right? Not that I should be saying that...

So, how do these Marines feel? Are they in or they out? One way or another you gotta choose.

"Why hello, there, Admiral. How lovely to see you on this fine day. What are we doing here? Why, we're just paying a visit to our good friend the Lord Admiral, ain't we, Tommy? Can't a pair of marines drop in to say hello to an old friend?"

"This here's an awful nice battlefleet you got, ain't it, Admiral? Lot's of cruisers and battleships here. Must be awful expensive to build a battlefleet this big, I figure. It bet it sure would cost a lot to replace it if it, say, went missing or something. Sure would be nice if a fella could just pay some money and never have to worry about that sort of thing, know what I mean?"

"Get to the point? Come, now, Admiral, there's no need for that tone, we're all friends here. All I'm saying is, it's real easy for things to happen to a battlefleet, you know? Could be lost in the warp, could be eaten by Tyranids, might be scavenged by Orks, who knows? All sorts of things can happen to a fleet that don't have the special protection that we provide, you know?"

"Oh geez, Tommy, you idiot, now look what you've gone and done. Sorry about that Admiral, but see, Tommy here is real clumsy like that. All the time, he's breaking stuff. Dates back to the Age of Strife, huh? Well, we're real sorry about that, ain't we, Tommy? Yeah, Tommy's doing stuff like that all the time. One time he accidentally destroyed a titan on account of how clumsy he is. Course, if they'd been paying for our...services, I would've been there protecting them and I could have stopped him, know what I'm saying? Anyway, Admiral, you think real hard about what I've told you now, and you let me know what you decide, okay?"

The first successor Chapter from The Family were the Scarbearers.

Their story is a tragic story, that humbles all Space Marines that even the best can fall, a statement on the dangers of Chaos.

When the Scarbearers began their fight against the enemy within and without, they stormed across the galaxy with a fury and success not seen since the Great Crusade.
With every victory their pride grew to new heights, with each conquest their treasury grew with exotic loot. Despite their thuggish behavior, they were well-liked, for they got the job done, as the High Lords of Terra had expected from geneseed from The Family.
Their greatest feat was their assistance to a besieged Marneus Calgar, who gifted them a rare case with power weapons from the Dark Age of Technology.

After that, their power and success made them proud, and they began to forgo actual military campaigns for wars of loot and plunder, mostly targeting the enemies of the Imperium.

The final straw for the Imperium was when the Scarbearers ransacked a transport ship carrying cyclonic torpedo charges, as well as many Dreadnoughts and Terminator armour for numerous chapters.

Two days later, Inquisitorial troops and the Sisters of Battle charged the homeworld of the Scarbearers.
During the final assault on their Fortress, drop pods came reigning down, revealing old friends.

The Astartes Mafius had landed to destroy their descendants.

Today, no one even knows the name of their homeworld. Only the Adeptus Mechanicus identification code remains. And inside the burnt out Fortress, you can still see the remains of the Chapter Master and his retinue in a dried up fountain, covered in the remains of what once was a pure platinum statue of Slaanesh holding the world, riddled in bolter holes, plasma burns and lascannon craters.

As part of their ancient custom, the Astartes Mafiosus partake in the traditional dishes of their forefathers at feasts. The Mafiosus' obsession with these seemingly bland grain noodles and dough wedges, hardly food befitting ones so illustrious as the Adeptus Astartes, baffles outsiders, as the Mafiosus are prone to hours-long debates over the merits of various types of red sauces or cheeses that appear more or less identical.

++THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: IGNORANCE IS A GIFT, AND THE EMPEROR WILL NOT PROVIDE A RECEIPT FOR EXCHANGE++

Although cloaked in romanticized tales and half-truths, one of the open secrets of the Astartes Mafius is the nature of the 3rd Company, known in official records as "Atra Manus" or Black Hand Company. True to their name, the left hand of their armor is painted black as per tradition.

Legends persist that the Company practices psychological warfare against upcoming foes, sending crudely written communiques with scrawls of chainswords and bolters in thick black ink, thus earning their original name. Demands will be made that purport to spare the recipient's life, but payment or not still results in the destruction of the target.

As those targets have more than occasionally been "upstanding men of the Imperium" including planetary governors and Imperial officers, the actions of the Black Hand Company are heavily curtailed by the Chapter. It officially does not exist, but consistently emerges from obscurity from time to time.

As Carlonius proceeded to wake up, he felt a sticky, thick, fluid on his left side, filling the space between his neck and pauldron. "What in the Emperor's nam-", and that was as much as he spoke before looking upon his most prized Grox's head, lying beside him in a large pool of blood. The only thing going through his mind was the pain that he would inflict on the ones who did this...

Picture this; Inquisitor Ness discovers Slaaneshi activity in the underhive boardwalks of Nova York. The infestation is too much for his acolytes to handle, so he calls in a favour from a friend higher up in the Inquisition. The next day, the sharp black-and-white drop pods start raining down, and he has his first encounter with Captain Capone of the Made Marines. Capone and his men decend into the uderhive and don't come out for days. Drop ships come and go, ostensibly to deliver supplies ad reinforcements, and finally Capone ad his men emerge. 'De problem 'as bin dealt wit' they tell Ness, and they depart. Ness and his acolytes descend to investigate.

There's carnage, sure; foul daemonic ichors and more standard blood, but the underhive has been swept clean of the rest. No sign of the artifacts or substances the Inquisitor expected he'd have to deal with. 'Maybe the marines dealt with it', he thinks. He asks his contact higher up, just to be sure. 'Reports of the destruction of all forbidden artifacts and substances have been filed' is the response. 'Now drop the subject.' Ness gets curious, investigates. The reports are filed, sure, but there isn't nearly as much in them as Ness would expect for a chaos cult of the size he'd fund in the underhive. What happened to the rest of those daemonic bitches, and all that daemonic blow? And then he remembers the dropships. Supplies and reinforcements, they said. And Ness is the second coming of the Emperor. He starts to investigate these "Made Marines" but his superiors shut him down. "Don't poke," they say. How high does the heresy go? Ness will find out, but he'll need acolytes for it. The best of the best, untouchable.
