He was perceived as a superior being by the population, almost like a divine being. Slowly but surely, people begin to assemble around him, and soon a whole population live under the Primarch.
Jeckel unify humanity under his banner, than lead the massacre of every beast and monster on the planet. He then lead humanity into a new age of technology, helping the population reach space and colonize the Caral System, building himself his how dominion to rule.

When the Emperor finally showed up, Jeckel was clearly not happy to learn that is superiority isn't unique, and that there is an even superior being to him. Refusing to abandon his personal empire to go on the Great Crusade, he launched his ships on the Imperial Fleet, but was defeated, after what he grudgingly accepted to join his father.

He was presented with his Legion, the Storm Knights. Amazed by the superiority of this army over his troops on Caral, he gladly took control over the Astartes

EXEMPLE #2


Legion: White Swords (previously Ultra Wings)
Number: XI
Homeworld: Atahan
Primarch: Severus Polemarch
Nickname: The Alabaster Sun
Modifier: +5 (Early Life)

Early Life
Severus felt on Atahan, a Hive World ruled by an oligarchy who viewed people as resources. He was raised by a member of the oligarchy. He was raised under materialist and economic ideologies, but rapidly realised the inequalities of his world.

He ended up using the dissatisfaction among the slaves, lovestocks and the rest of the population against the oligarchy and took power with popular support, thus betraying his adoptive father. Instead of leading the new government himself, Severus delegated the powers to good and competent mens that he had faith in, and took little to no part in the politics of Atahan.

When the Emperor arrived and ask his son to join him, Severus gladly complied, knowing that his world didn't need him and could manage itself.

He was then presented to his Legion, the Ultra Wings. He changed their name for the Wite Swords, after the colour his own sword (which he called “the most valuable weapon on Alahan”) and delegated many responsability that would normaly fall on the Primarch to the Lord Commanders of the Great Companies.

The process
  • He was adopted as the son of an important person and part of the upper class. (+2)
  • Hive World: Large Hives controlled by a materialist and economic oligarchy who sees people as nothing more than resources. (-2 since Severus is the son of an important man)
  • Yes, and with the general support of the population (+1)
  • Instead of taking an active part into politic, he delegated responsibilities to competent individuals and only participate when needed to. (+1)
  • Yes (+1)
  • Yes (+2)
  • Renamed his legion and change it to mark a new beginning for it.
