In weekdays I'm a glorious Iron Hand, doing my duty (Job), paying my tithes (Taxes) and expunging weakness wherever I find it.

But in the weekends I'm a hedonistic Emperor's Children, getting kicks out of doing all things pleasurable, nasty and borderline illegal, that I really shouldn't do.

It's either on or off for me, there's no golden middle road, so I guess my choices are apt enough.

But ultimately, that would be what I`m doing now. Pretending I`m happy. I couldn`t live a life like that, I`ve done it for close to a decade now ever since my childhood ended and I am at breaking point.

Truth is, so much in this world just pisses me off in the extreme and I would love nothing more than to watch it burn, to
Man, Serpion5, that's some heavy stuff right there...

Alright, I will be serious now. The Night Lords are probably not my most closely aligned of Legions.

Were the Emperor to run this device over me, he would find my in the favor of the Death Guard -- assuming this is Pre-Heresy. The Death Guard fight the foot-slogging fight, a fight of endurance. No matter what happens they will endure and they will continue until their objective is complete.

That is my in a nutshell. My family was never rich, and so I had to work for everything I've ever had. College was never an option so I went into construction. Everyday I endure the long hours and little appreciation so that I can carve out a life for my family. I've always admired the foot-slogging of any army and the ability to push equipment through hell and back and maintain and repair it to keep it in operation order.

I've also never been one for ornamention -- neither was the Death Guard. Simply getting the job done, enduring every challenge, every problem, and continuing. No matter how hard it gets -- I will ultimately endure, I will live on.

The Emperor would give me charge of the Death Guard.

My reponse?

If I had to go by pure personality It would be the Thousand Sons. I value knowlege and history. i want to know things and understand them.

If I had to choose however I would pick the Ultramarines. They are one of the most normal of the Legions and I feel I would fit in well. I'm a rather reserved practical person and I admire the Ultramarine mindset.

I don`t think this is possible. For one, the things that anger me are my home and work life, essentially the two things that I spend the most time involved with.

I can move out, and change carrers (planning already underway for both ) but it won`t change anything. I pretend I`m happy at home and at work, but I do make sure to vent appropriately. I practise martial art kata now and then which is a good release and I like to draw some very ragey hatey things (none of which will make it online) which always makes me feel better.

On top of this, I`ve come to draw strength and focus from anger. I have found that I do my best work when I`m pissed off at something.

For instance, I was stewing in rage when I built this.

Aww, and here I thought I found someone who genuinely shared my dystopian view of human nature, and in their darkest days realized the temporal nature of all human existence including the fictional soul. Also sharing in my distaste for the horrifying trend of humanity to glorify weakness and disease as progress.

Oh well your reasons for feeling of desperation are hate are just as valid, just a tad to restricted to human existence for my tastes.

Iron warriors. I am generally a hard working by the book person, follow the rules and do whats right. Heavily into engineering. Big fan of the concept of bionics.(I would become robocop tomorrow) However as life progresses i find myself becomming more cynical, angry and bitter. Took me a while to figure this out but there it is.

According to LUKEVALENTINE's test i am a diciple of khorne. Figures really.

Oh, LukeValantine, truly you and I are alike!

You`ve just described me perfectly except for your last sentence. I don`t like human nature any more than you seem to, but despite my wishes I am human, and I see no point in denying that. Stuff pisses me off, and I accept that. It feels good, and I feel better for it.

Hmm, I can be funny, sometimes, I'm stubborn, imaginative and creative, and like finding out new things (Only if they are intresting new things though).

So I guess it's the Thousand Sons for me.
