So is that four total, now?

Yes, essentially zombie marines that only function by direct command.

Oh yes, they're my favorite henchmen of The Talon of Horus novel.

I added four new characters and bumped up the amount of players. I will also be editing the chapter's backstory due to some errors.

Tilraenen Khaleesi
 
Character's Name: Tilraenen Khaleesi (Or Til for short)

Character's Description: Tall, slim and pale as characteristic of all eldar. Additionally, Til has pronounced creases under his eyes and scarred skin along both forearms where his former craftworld tattoos were ungracefully removed. His black hair is cut to just above shoulder length.

Tilraenen wears a ranger stealth cloak however its functionality has greatly decreased, leaving it little more than a cloak. Underneath this he wears a mix of eldar guardian armour and kabalite armour. His left arm and right greave are guardian armour, the rest is kabalite. His right arm bears backwards curving hooks he can use as a weapon in themselves.

Character's Race: Dark Eldar Outcast.

Character's Wargear: Splinter Rifle, Splinter Pistol, Sword, Knife.
Kabalite Armour.

Character's Backstroy: Tilraenen was born on the eldar craftworld of Biel Tan and immersed himself in the teachings of Khaine from a young age. His passion and drive led him to the temple of the Dire Avengers in his early adulthood and his enthusiasm led many of the temple to believe that the path of the exarch was his destiny. He showed promise and dedication, marking his skin with the runes of passion and drive.

However the warrior was impetuous beyond even the Avengers' calling, and many times defied orders in favour of ensuring a foe's sure destruction. After numerous reprimands Tilraenen's arrogance directly caused the death of a fellow aspect warrior and he was dismissed from the temple in disgrace. His reputation was tainted and no other Avenger temple would take him. After several months of frustration and feelings of being lost, the disparaged warrior made the decision to leave Biel Tan.

Wandering the webway on Corsair ships showed him a world he'd never considered exploring before, and his wanderlust grew. But as it did, so too did his own desire. The galaxy was much more vast than he could have dreamed, and this new freedom was the release he had craved. After numerous skirmishes with alien forces, Tilraenen's captain also decreed the young warrior too impetuous for his own good and the good of his crew. In disgust and disappointment, Til hijacked a small cargo craft and searched for another option. More years passed, and while exploring a human world with increasing impatience, he was captured by dark eldar on one of their raids. A sybarite quickly came to respect the young eldar's vibrant defiance even in the face of capture and death, and offered him a place in his own unit. For near forty years Tilraenen sank deeper and deeper into decadence and self glorification, bartering his soul to the haemonculi to preserve his future.

During a raid gone horribly wrong, The Kabal of the Sundered Heart was decimated by Imperial forces tipped off by a rival kabal. Tilraenen along with many of the other survivors limped back to Commoragh to find their domain claimed by other kabals, leaving them with the option of facing torture or fleeing. Refusing to admit that his path would lead to his own ruin, Tilraenen embraced his new life as a mercenary. Now aged close to a century and a half and with experience of a warrior, pirate and mercenary under his belt, Tilraenen finds himself in the service of a Visionary Chaos servant known as Laertes...

Character's Name: Juda Bagrosian

Character's Description: Bagrosian is a little taller than average for an Astartes. His eyes are jet black, his complexion very pale. A puckered, zig-zag scar typical of a chain blade runs from his chin across his left cheek and through his ear. His armour is a mish-mash of different marks, adorned in the usual style of the Night Lords, midnight blue adorned with the skins and skulls of various races, most prominent of which is the face of his former squad sergeant stretched across his chest plate. His right leg is a bionic below the knee, with the foot a stylised raptor's claw.

Character's Race: Night Lord (Astartes)

Character's Wargear: A battered but reliable bolter, bolt pistol, and skinning knife. He also carries a collection of grenades, some clearly xenos in origin, the effects of which even Bagrosian is not quite sure of.

Character's Backstory: Bagrosian was amongst the first crop of Night Lord aspirants recruited from Nostramo. His career in the preHeresy legion was most note worthy for just how little there was of note to it. He served during the Great Crusade with complete ignominy as part of the 19th Chapter under Balthasar Sul. Over the years, many of his squad mates were promoted over him, much to his dismay and resentment, even though he was more than willing to hang back and let his squad mates take the lead when in action.

Bagrosian missed the slaughter on the killing fields of Istvaan V after he provoked one of Sul's cadre of veterans while in the practice cages only days before the attack. The veteran taught him a lesson by chopping off Bagrosian's right leg below the knee with his chain axe, and leaving a more conspicuous scar on his face. He did take part in the Thramas Crusade, and post Heresy fought in various warbands such as the Night Wings and Hodir's Reavers.

One thing that became apparent both during and after the Heresy was his uncanny ability to survive. Several times over the years he managed to be the sole survivor of his squad, sometimes through circumstance, but more often at the expense of others. This led to him being seen as a Jonah-type figure of ancient Terran myth, bringing nothing but bad luck to those that served alongside him. This led to many warriors refusing to accept him into their ranks, and eventually led to him joining a fledgling warband led by a traitor chapter master named Bartimus. He made himself valuable to Bartimus by unquestioningly carrying out many distasteful and underhand tasks, as well as reporting any sign of dissent or treacherous attitudes amongst the warband.

With the rise of Laertes, Bagrosian did his best to seamlessly slip into a similar role for the new warlord, but Laertes was fully aware of what Bagrosian was capable of, and while he would use Bagrosian's willingness to carry out similar underhand tasks that Bartimus used him for, he would never let him close enough to become part of his inner circle.

How long do you want to run the recruitment before we start?

Newbie-202 09-25-15 07:24 AM

Just letting you know that my app will be posted later today, hopefully, and while I would love to finish it up now, I unfortunately still have to go to school.

Keep your pants on man, recruitment has only been up for five days now

MagpieKnight 09-25-15 05:47 PM

Yeah with Newbie‐202's app we will have seven. We shouldn't have any trouble making the eight the GM wants.
