The giant bear thing is the product of a joke Gav Thorpe (I think it was him) made, that for all the fans know, the Nicassar could be psychic polar bears or something. Basically, it meant "you don't know what they look like, nor are you going to soon". Some people took it too seriously.

The Blood Angels Codex has the "honor of warriors" stuff. The Necron Codex has the Silent King realising his army was too weak to destroy the Blood Angels, and bitterly slipping away instead of risking defeat. One of the reasons I really like that codex.
Questions are a burden to others, answers a burden to oneself.

Well, there's a rumour that Fenrisian Wolves are actually ab-humans. Hence why the Space Wolves can't have a successor chapter, due to the failure of the Canis Helix to combine with regular human DNA. The Fenrisian's themselves are slightly modified.

Only rumours, I thought everyone just sort of knew it as true by this point, how many times has the phrase "there are no wolves on fenris" been quoted by characters who would know this junk. Magnus the fricking Red stated it, and he KNOWS stuff...

indeed going on the scale of what we know; Wulfen are those that didn't quite make it as marines, Fenrisian wolves are those who definitely didn't make it, and Thunderwolves... well god only knows.
It's all fun and games until someone shoots their own guy with a Graviton gun instead of the MASSIVE SPIDER.

My 13th Company will be over in the corner pretending none of this is happening.  At least we've been retconned so we don't have to be affected by this nonsense.

He's Tzeentchian, therefore deceitful. Take with a pinch of salt.

I think the Canis Helix was an answer to the question of why space wolves gene seed inhibited wolf like mutation when the story of Leman Russ appeared to say he gained his wolf like tendencies because he was raised by wolves on Fenris, not because of a mutation in his own gene seed. Therefore why would the rest of his legion show the same mutations? So GW came up with the canis helix as an implant for aspirant Space Wolves.

indeed, but he stated it before he went all sarum- *ahem* Magnus of many colours, so I'm more inclined to believe him
