Just as Space Marine Chaplains uphold the creed of their Chapters, the priests of the Dark Gods, the Dark Apostles devote their lives to spreading the unholy word and the worship of Chaos across the galaxy and throughout the Imperium of Mankind. Their efforts do not go unseen or unrewarded, daemonic auras of protection shimmer and writhe as the Apostle chants his blasphemous prayers. The Dark Apostle bears an unholy symbol of office, the accursed crozius and a fell daemonic tome. In battle, he chants prayers to the Dark Gods for their unholy blessings. His Dark Disciples carry relics of corruption which aid their master in his prayers to the Gods of Chaos.
