Just to give you guys a heads up to the editing of my character and the addition of "Young Blood" to my name, Revan4559 gave me the heads up to go ahead with this.

High_Seraph - Raskreia Loyard - Approved.

Three spaces remain open for the roleplay to fill out the roster.

Tech-Marine specialist position is still open meaning the remaining two will be left as Company Veterans so Komanko and SoA you better get your character sheets up soon as at latest i would like to get the action thread started by tomorrow evening. (8pm GMT+0).

Character Titles: The reason a couple of you are getting titles is because as you may remember the Night Lords legion are rather theatrical when it comes to giving people titles usually to do with how they are and what they have done such as:

Talos - Prohphet due to his ability to see the future.
Malacharion - The War-Sage, for his writings on how to execute battles and wars.
Sevatar - Prince of Crows, reason unknown at the moment.
Xandrek - The Lord of Lies, can be found out when talking to him in the roleplay.

Veptus's title: Corpse-Master mainly links in with the fact that he is an apocathery and has more dealings with dead things than he does with living battle brothers.

Corvis's Title: Corvis's title is more of a nickname in which he is addressed by Xandrek and Azrael though others older than him are free to use ' Young Blood ' when adressing him instead of 'Crovis'.

Others may get titles before the action thread first goes up as i re-read each of your character sheets and see if any fit your personalities and historys, if not however then throughout the roleplay obviously you will have chances to earn nicknames / titles as it goes on.

I'll have a look at hopping on the wagon for this RP as anything run by revan promises to be good. No promises though.

Name: Var

Age: Said to be nearly 150 years old.

Homeworld: Nostramo

Physical Appearance: More machine than man, Var is almost unrecognizable as even human. All that remains of his face is paper-white scarred flesh stretched across one cheek, surrounding a midnight black eye. The rest of his face is metal. His jaw is a twisted imitation of human. The metal teeth are too long, and too sharp, the lower jaw too square. His left eye is a shining light, a crimson flash, that is held by metal. His neck is a mass of twisted cable running down into his armor.

Armour Appearance: None have seen Var out of his armor but many say that there is nothing beneath, that the armor is Var and Var is his armor. The armor itself is frightening to behold. His armor is bulky, a mix of different armors welded together by his hand, he stands at eight feet tall within it, and it is heavily decorated. The expected Servo-Harness, five arms sprouting from his back, still bears the spattered blood of the men and aliens it has taken life from. One of the harnesses arms is a long, jet black, spike, almost two feet long, that Var refers to only as Ďhis tailí. The armor itself, a crimson red, bar the Chapter symbol emblazoned upon his right shoulder, has deep gouges torn from it where enemies have struck it. The lightning pattern that is common among all the Night Lords is evident as well upon Varís armor, running from his legs and circling his torso. Var never wears a helmet, as his metal face only adds to the terror he brings in combat.

Personality: Var is ruthless and cold-blooded. He is a brutal killer and his personality reflects that. He is icy cold to everyone, even those he has fought beside for hundreds of years. He makes no bonds with his brothers, in case he may one day have to severe them. Anyone who does try and befriend him is shunned and they soon abandon the hopeless task. That is not to say that Var is silent, in fact he is far from it.

But when he speaks he expects no argument and anyone who does raise a voice against him is met with the same brutality and cold-bloodiness that he displays in combat. Yet beneath this icy exterior is a cunning and treacherous man who will not hesitate to kill the man beside him if it gains him anything.

Marine Class: Legion Tech-Marine

Background: Varius Montangro was born into the pits of Nostramo. He was a nameless figure upon the records of the planet. He drifted through a bleak and grey life with no ambition and no future. Perhaps that is why it was him that was chosen.

Taken from the street by a group of armed thugs we was heavily sedated and bundled into the waiting vehicle. All he remember of those following days is pain, the likes of which he has not felt before or since. When he did wake for a few moments, swimming up from the pain, he saw cloudy figures moving around him, vicious blades cutting at his flesh and machinery whirring in his mind.

He still does not know how long he was there. But when he did wake he was no longer Varius Montangro. He was a changed man in every sense of the word. His body had been torn apart and hastily thrown back together again. His limbs and large parts of his torso was now cold steel where there had once been flesh. His face had been twisted, his jaw now a metal maw. His left eye was blind to him. He didnít know where he was. He didnít know who he was. He didn't know what he was. All he knew was that he was angry and the pain he felt was because of the men moving around him.

With an almighty roar Var tore free from his restraints and laid about him with nothing but his bare hands. But those hands were metal and every blow knocked down another figure. Running blindly forwards Var burst from the facility and out onto the street. He kept running throughout the night till he finally collapsed from exhaustion upon the steps of Schola Progennium Academy.

He was taken from the steps and delivered to the Night Lords Chapter for judgment. Deciding that the metal freak before them might be an interest to Mars they sent him to the Red Planet and all but forgot about him.

Twenty years later and the now recognizable figure of Var returned to Nostramo as a Tech-Marine, seeking to join the chapter that had sent him away.

He was taken into the chapter with great suspicion and distrust. But his ability to mend and repair the mechanized arm of the chapter was reason enough to accept the scarred man. And those few that still suspected the Tech-Marine had unfortunate accidents involving heavy machinery, their bolters jamming in battle or their tanks detonating.

While many believed that Vars was responsible for these deaths it was never proven and so the mysterious Tech-Marine continued to climb the ranks. His prowess with the Machine Spirits was matched only by his skill in battle, where his Servo-Harness rained down blows upon his foes even as his axe cleaved head from shoulder.

It was his ability in combat more than his ability to operate the Chapterís rare and unique relics that interested Xandrek to the mysterious Tech-Marine. But in thinking that he was watching Varís he was wrong. For Varís had been watching the Night Lord almost since his arrival. There are many things that can go wrong with a poorly treated suit of Power Armour so it came as no surprise to Vars when Xandrek dispatched the previous Captain of the Fourth Company and took his place.

Quickly stepping forward and displaying himself as a good choice Varís was not surprised when he was selected to become a part of his First Claw. He quickly proved he was not a poor option when he used his skills and position to obtain some of the finest equipment with which to equip the other members of the Command Squad.

Now Varís sits in a position that, if he so required, he could use to his advantage. And he plans to. But for now he will fight beneath Xandrek.

Weapons: Var wields an iconic Omnissian Power Axe into combat. Itís shaft is four foot long and the Cog Mechanicum icon upon itís tip shimmers with energy as it swings through the air. Used as a tool and a weapon it can bite itís way through a tanks hull or enemies armor with equal ease. His other tools of trade, the Fyceline Torch and Plasma Cutter can also be used as deadly weapons if any enemy is unfortunate to come within range. One of his Servo-Arms also carries a Tigrus Pattern Boltgun that barks out death in perfect accordance to Varís will.

Equipment: Varís Servo-Harness is almost unique among the Mechanicus, and certainly the only one within the Night-Lordís. While many Tech Marines share extremely close bonds with their Servo-Harnesses, Vars is at one with his. They function as one unit and work perfectly in harmony. Vars also carries a string of Frag and Krak Grenades which he hurls before him, detonating them seconds before he reaches the enemy.

name= Fundae Ignescunt

age=195

homeworld=Terra

physical appearance=Fundae’s head is clean shaven purposefully to show off the markings that cover it. His nose is crooked and dented from being attacked by his battle brother.His eyes are a dark deep black like his battle brothers and his teeth are jagged and cracked. across his dome like head are tattoos telling of his life from him being found amidst the blaze to his first battle to his promotion to first claw. He is slightly more built then his brothers due to the years of carrying his heavy weapon but is still a stick compared to those of the world eaters and death guard.

armor appearance=A Juggernought as he marches across the fields of battle in his Mark III armor.His Armor displays the Dark abyss blue of the night lords with pleasure however like most of his legion it is covered in alterations.His greaves are embossed with a raging inferno. His Gauntlets are etched with every fallen comrade he has fought beside. The Entire right arm of his armor including the right pauldren are decorated with the bones of many Xenos he has faced and beneath the additions no original armor is viewable. His Helmet is almost unrecognizable as the iron armor that it originated from as heavy modifications by the armouries have left it mimicking the Horned helmets of old earth.

personality=Off the field of battle Fundae is quiet cheery and enjoys a good laugh but his constant grin can be unerving on occasion. However on the field of battle it would take a terminator to pull him back as when he strides forth it is almost like a demon has posessed him (not literally).He will say yes to almost anything if it involvs killing or firing his heavy flamer and to his comrades he gives much needed fire support.

marine class=Legiones Astartes Veteran

background=Fundae remembers not his childhood except when a fully grown man found him amidst the burning wreckage of a machine warehouse. After this the man took him to a local settlement were he revealed himself to be a member of the Emperor’s army, Fundae was signed up to the Legiones Astartes Project to get him off the street. Throughout all his training he caught onto the use of flame weaponry due to his one remaining memory. Upon the finding of their Primarch Fundae had already been elevated to a fire support squad were the searing heat of their combined fire filled him with a strange pleasure that didn’t take long to get him addicted.

Xandrek witnessed the fury of Ignescunt first hand when an ork warlord attempted to end the captain but found his power claw melting which ended in the greenskin being put through unthinkable pain before being finished of by Xandrek and as a reward Fundae was elevated to his first claw.

Countless foes were incinerated by his heavy flamer and he gained reputation amongst his company for being a pyromaniac. The destrction of Nostramo took an unusual effect on Fundae, the view from the bridge of the firepower hitting the surface reminded him of battle and the grin that played across his face meant that one of the other legionares leapt at him and attempted to end him (if you want this to be you just say) but the others managed to pull him off.When Their Primarch announced Horus’s plan he had already lost himself to the thrill and leapt at the opportunity.

weapons:
ranged=heavy flamer
close combat=chain axe

equipment:
1.melta bombs
2.frag and krak grenades
3.nuncio-vox

I had thought it was the Gene-seed which caused Night Lords to become pale and black eyed?
