The Red Seraphs are another Space Marine Chapter of which little is known, like most Astartes Praeses chapters. They've mainly been mentioned in the Imperial Armour books, getting most attention in the Orphean War book, and a short story named "tradition" by ADB, where it is revealed that the chapter honours it's dead with interrement in ornate sarcophagi located in the "beautiful bowels of their warships".

They used to share a strange tradition with the Red Seraphs and Angels Numinor: every century or so three warriors would reunite on a dead world to speak of their chapter's past, present, and future. But as the Great Rift makes the present ever more dire, and the future ever more uncertain, the three chapters have decided to leave tradition behind and join their fleets to take the fight to the ennemy.
