There are also many things that were dissimilar, most noticeably the absence of a true Deathwing. Although they call their first company the Deathwing they do not all wear Tactical Dreadnought Armour, still however considerably more than most other chapters. Also all brothers are encouraged to keep there original names and because many take up this offer the names appear to be as varied as their recruits are. All this changed by several key instances, starting with a battle on an insignificant 'backwater' world. This battle involved a dug in and outnumbered small force of Dark Angel's lead by the Ezekiel himself. The Angels of Deliverance came in force and helped dig the Dark Angels out of trouble, with Alsektar (the chapters Supreme Grand Master) fighting side by side with the most revered Ezekiel. After the battle the Dark Angels left with little more than a short and formal embrace between Ezekiel and Alsektar. The chapter for a while afterwards seemed to find themselves by no known design fighting along side their parent chapter in skirmish after skirmish. Every time the Angels of Deliverance would start a campaign to find the Dark Angels helping out before its end. After not seeing the Dark Angels while fighting in the second war of Armageddon they began a campaign to destroy a force of chaos on a world known as Kassandar. This battle lead to them becoming entrenched on a plateau atop Mount Cimmerian, the highest point in Kassandar. When all looked lost with an overwhelming force of Khorne baring down upon them the Dark Angels once again intervened. After helping to drive off the horde a meeting was called between Alsektar and the Dark Angels Inner Circle. Alsektar and his chapter it seems had come to the attention of the Dark Angels and with Ezekiel's blessing was to be inducted into the chapters of the Unforgiven.
The Dark Angels also helped to set up the Deathwing with more Terminator Suits and the Chapter adopted the name The Cimmerian Legion. After scrutiny many of the most senior of the chapter were also given the knowledge of the fallen and over time the chapter developed many of the different levels of knowledge that existed in the Dark Angels Chapter. The Chapter also developed some unique features. The first and second companies became members of the circle which encompassed all the different levels of knowledge of The Chapter newly adopted secrets with some having little to no knowledge but been elite enough to be members. One particular unique part of the Chapter is the fact that a small number of veterans who saw some of the worst and bloodiest fighting formed up into a group called the Cimmerian Circle. They all adopted the use of Lightning claws on their Tactical Dreadnought Armour and painted their amour in the three colours of the Chapter's history. They painted their armour part black for the original legion, part white for the tradition of the Deathwing and part green for the Battle Company. They adopt into their order those veterans who show the best and most fierce determination to crush the Chapters enemies.
