** Several Chapters have their own takes on Chaplains. The SpaceWolves have Wolf Priests (Space Viking shamans that can cause storms and earthquakes), BloodAngels have Sanguinary Priests ({{CombatMedic}}s tasked with watching for signs of the [[UnstoppableRage Red Thirst]], which the Chaplains then take command of those who have fallen to it), and the evil version used by the Word Bearers, who preach the twisted dogma that makes men fall to Chaos.
