Castellans are a Primaris Space Marine chapter created during the Indomitus Crusade. They were instructed to clear the Nachmund Gauntlet, one of the few stable routes through the Great Rift, of daemon engines and renegade knights. Also contributed to the War of Beasts, but then again, who HASN'T?
They resemble loyalist Primaris Death Guard. Puke green. Skull symbols. Wars of attrition. You get it. Leading one to suspect Guilliman might be trolling Mortarion for starting the Plague Wars. Perhaps Cawl asked forgiveness instead of permission (ignoring Guilliman’s orders about traitor gene-seed) or Guilliman accepted the idea and was like “fuck it, let’s have some lulz.” He could use a good laugh, I’m sure.
