The Space Wolves, known in their own dialect of Juvjk as the Vlyka Fenryka or "Wolves of Fenris," are one of the original 20 First Founding Space Marine Legions, and were once led by their famed Primarch, Leman Russ. Once the VI Legion of Astartes raised by the Emperor at the dawn of the Great Crusade, the Space Wolves are renowned for their anti-authoritarian ways and their embrace of their homeworld Fenris' savage barbarian culture as well as their extreme deviation from the Codex Astartes in the Chapter's organisation. The Primarch of the Space Wolves, Leman Russ, grew up on the distant, icy Death World of Fenris, a snow-covered, geologically unstable world inhabited by primitive, warlike tribes of barbaric humans. Russ arrived on the frigid planet as an infant after his gestation capsule was flung across the galaxy through the Warp from the Emperor's secret gene-laboratory deep beneath the Himalayan Mountains on Terra by the whim of the Chaos Gods. Russ was raised to his genetically-accelerated adulthood by a pack of the massive, semi-sentient Fenrisian Wolves that still prowl the snowy lands of that deadly world. Russ was eventually discovered by a man named Thengir, the King of the Russ, who had organised a party of hunters to clear the Fenrisian Wolf pack from his lands. As most of the wolves were slaughtered, the young man who had run with the pack was captured and brought to Thengir who took him into his care, and gave him the name Leman of the Russ. The Primarch learned the ways of Mankind quickly, and many legends sprang up about him among the Fenrisian tribes. Upon his adopted father's death, the kingship of the Russ passed to Leman. Leman became a mighty leader, winning many victories for his adopted people, often fighting alongside packs of Fenrisian Wolves, led by two of his Wolf-brothers who had escaped Thengir's hunters. Shortly after his crusade on the planet, the Emperor of man came to the planet, and tested his skill's as a Primarch. Soon after his evaluation, he was given the order of traveling into unknown space, and finding other worlds that needed to be given the law of the Imperium of Man.
