Age: Over a millenia
Position: Commander of Death's Angels 6th company
Appearance: Like most battle brothers from his founding chapter, Zeros carries an air and look of nobility about him thanks to his gene-father Sanguinius. Despite Zeros' age, he carries no scars on his face, his skin being rather pale, smooth and fairly sunken. His hair is cropped at shoulder length and is charcoal black. His eyes carry little color, instead reflecting the darkness and emptiness of space. Combining these traits with his elongated canine teeth gave him a look similar to the vampires of past legends. As for his body, Zeros is of average height with a slightly leaner build.
Personality: Zeros is a stern, cold, leader, his word carrying the weight of his experience and position. On the battlefield he is merciless towards the enemy. Off the battlefield, one wouldn't be wrong in saying that it seems Zeros has lost his humanity. While he values the lives of his battle brothers, he would have no qualms about destroying an entire city of millions of innocents to achieve his objective.
Armor: A modified suit of Mark IV armor. The power from the suit does not come from a traditional backpack. Instead, the suit has a more compact generator that harnesses the power of the warp, similar to a warp engine. It spreads a microthin invisible film over his armor. This film dissipates the energy from ranged and handheld weapons alike, bleeding off some of the energy directly into the warp.
Weapons: Zeros has trained in the use of many of the Imperium's weapons but has favored his own modified weapons. These weapons have been altered to use the same power source as his armor. First is a single lightning claw, Death's Grasp, wreathed in the energy of the warp, allowing him to cut through flesh and armor with equal ease (power weapon). Zeros also carries a pistol, Death's Reach, that draws power from the same generator and condenses it into a fist sized ray that lances out through enemies, whether they are infantry or tanks (treated as an infernous pistol but with a slightly greater range).
Background: Zeros is from the days of the Horus Heresy, having fought at the gates of Terra. Upon hearing the death of Sanguinius and the fall of Horus, Zeros and a group of his battle brothers pursued a contingent of traitor marines. None know what happened in warp space on this trip save for Zeros and he does not speak of it to anyone. The only facts that are known are that when the ship Zeros was on emerged from the warp, he was the only one alive. Rumor spread through his chapter that he had been tainted by the warp, the change in his armor and weapons along with the fact he was the lone survivor backing up these rumors. Whether these rumors are true or not, only Zeros and Librarian Mephiston know, for the depths of Zeros' mind were probed by the great psyker. Going off the word of Mephiston, Zeros was reassigned to the Death's Angels, assuring that Zeros was to be trusted. Despite this, rumors of whether Zeros had been touched by chaos still roam among his own men. And while they do not speak of such rumors in front of Zeros, he is nonetheless aware of them. Perhaps it is seeming lack of humanity that spurs these rumors still, but Zeros cares not as he lets his deeds speak for themselves. To this day he leads wars against the enemies of mankind, slaughtering those that would stand in his way without mercy.
"There is a cancer eating at the Imperium. With each decade it advances deeper, leaving drained, dead worlds in its wake. This horror, this abomination, has though and purpose which functions on an unimaginable, galactic scale and all we can do is try to stop the swarms of bio-engineered monsters it unleashes upon us by instinct. We have given the horror a name to salve our fears; we call it the Tyranid race, but if it is aware of us at all, it must know us only as Prey."
