Last game I played was Hotline Miami so...
He's a horrible mass killer who has profound tendencies towards sadism and disregard for himself. He slips in and out of surrogate identities in order to distance himself from the horrible things he's done, while also fully indulging in them.
I think he's basically a horrible mix of Night Lords and a little bit of Alpha Legion. His legions tactics would be hyper aggressive with a disregard for casualties, but not necessarily as blunt as the World Eaters. They'd move fast, frequently make decisions on their own initiative, and frequently take heavy losses while inflicting them on the enemy in kind.
I think they'd probably do a similar "mask" thing to the Eldar, where a space marine undergoes a ritualistic adopting of an identity or totem animal before deployment, psychologically embuing himself with (what he believes) are the aspects of the animal.
Also, they use a *lot* of combat drugs.

The lost Primarch is a mysterious, seldom-seen tactitian known colloquially as "The Commander". His legion is made up of small kill-teams who are tasked with responding to Xenos threats. Surviving more than one mission is a mark of honor.

Dynamically changing combat tactics depending on the type of enemy. Alternating between rapid, close range melee strikes or long ranged pelting. Always equipped with various ammo types as well as other gear to increase the tactical flexibility even further, but lacks heavy weapons or actual specialized squads built on doing one specific thing well(such as devastator squads or assaults). Lots of dodging and blocking(with shields) to minimize damage rather than more physical beefyness to take sustained hits. Spins a lot. Very quiet, but not antisocial. Somewhat smug when the situation allows it.

The last book I read was a Thomas Covenant re-read.

I quite literally cannot envision a Thomas Covenant legion. His conflicted "I can't quite cut it" pacifism would make him unsuitable, even if he can snap into violence when sufficiently provoked.

Then there's the problem that he'd probably precipitate something cataclysmic when exposed to the power of the Chaos Gods. Like "end the universe and causality" cataclysmic.

DOOM (2016)

The Primarch's has no name or titles.
After being scattered through the warp, the primarch landed on a Daemon World. Miraculously, he was never corrupted by Chaos, and displays an extreme hatred towards daemons.
Upon discovery by the Emperor, the Second Legion was put under the primarch's command. The legion was give the name "Doom Slayers", as testament to their resilience to chaotic corruption and effectiveness in fighting daemons.

The Doom Slayers never took part in the Great Crusade, much to the Emperor's disappointment. Instead they immediately returned to the Eye of Terror, following their primarch in his neverending crusade against chaos, never to be seen or heard from again.
Records of the Second Legion were expunged from Imperial records.

Periodically reports come from worlds who have experienced daemonic invasions telling of a unknown chapter of Space Marines intervening in the battles. Clad in green power armour of heresy-era type, these Marines were at first assumed to be a Chaos Space Marine warband.
Further information came to light showing these marines fighting daemons, and no chaotic corruptions could be seen on their wargear. They specialize in close-quarters combat, with a heavy focus on shotguns, hand-to-hand combat and chainsword use, preferring to tear daemons limb from limb to kill them.
Grey Knight detachments have noted that these marines are willing to aid those fighting daemons, although they will disappear into the warp after the daemons who attempt to retreat.

Covered in scraps of looted armor and wielding weapons of fallen foes, these resourceful space marines are a ragtag group that on more than one occasion have been mistaken for poorly disguised orks.

During meetings and such, he would always send his advocate, a High Lord from the planet Suplexus Prime. However, when it came to battle, the Primarch was always the first into the battle, no weapons but his fists by his hands, but yet he still won every conflict he found himself in, his ferocity and violence earning him the moniker, "The Emperor's Beast". During the great war his legion fought alone, the Primarch heeding to the words of his Advocate over the whispers of the dark gods, and the callings of The Emperor, leading himself and his Legion to decimate high-priority targets within the Chaos war machine until one fateful day, during single combat with an ancient Daemon covered in golden plate, he was mortally wounded. Some say that he left this galaxy into realms unknown to hone his strength, and he will return to slay the one who wounded him so greatly and bring destruction to the forces of evil.

Hermes Kurier was the Primarch of the Messengers of the Truth. This legion was renowned before finding his Primarch for their diplomatic skills, bringing back to the light many human civilizations with just their words. However everything changed when his primarch was found. It was on the planet of Paradise IV when the Emperor met Hermes. The planet had fall into debuchery and anarchy, and the Emperor found his son fighting in what it seemed like a planet wide free for all deathmatch. When Hermes was interrogated about the situation, he just said: "this is just friday here". Obviously his Father was not very impressed about him. He had not conquered or united his planet. Furthermore, he seemed to live in what Malcador could only describe as a "Whiskey Tango Trailer Park".

Hermes first missions were barely over chores and low end jobs for a Primarch. Scorting kill ships to Exterminate xeno planets, routine exploration missions, anti-pirate patrols. He reluctlantly accepted saying that he only did them cause he had been sacked last week. Despite this, the missions always face unexpected trouble. Diplomatic delegations suddenly attacked the primarch. Ork raiders launched attacks during scientific scientific provings. Everywhere he went, no matter how peaceful, always ended with violence. Some like Guilliman said it was due to a lack or proper planning. Others like Magnus said he was cursed.

>> No.52032407

2/2

Hermes started to show symptoms of unhinges. His sanity went from shouting apocalyptic madman rantings during xenocide operations to spitting bad puns when putting down rebellions. It did not help that most of Paradise recruited marines were a mix of losers, psychos and fanatics. Some of these infamous marines were Brother Notting Portman or Brother Osama Al-Ladin. Even the once righteous terran marines went postal now, such is the case of Captain William Foster.

It is unclear if Hermes could detect people prone to Amok syndrome during recruiting, if it was a flaw in the genecode or if it was part of the Legion's bad luck.

The Legion excels in violence, lacking the tactical finesse for more important objectives. For this reason, and following the primarch fashion, every marine carries more than the standard weapon for his class. Improvised, standard or state of the art, every marine carries far more fire power and melee tools than he should. From Devastators carrying power machetes to Destroyer squads armed with extra double barrel guns. This has resulted useful many times, since their battle always turn awry. The Legion also employs many Moritat marines in their operations.
