Name: Sebastian Aureillian
Legion: Emperor's Children - Lieutenant
Appearance: Sebastian is of above average height for a Space Marine but is also more slender then many of his brothers. He has a young, handsome face, characterised by high defined cheek bones, a narrow jaw and pale blue eyes. His skin is pale and his hair is long and golden blonde. It is most often arranged into two intricate braids, one holding back the majority of his hair while another smaller one is made from the stray hair at the front and is often tucked behind his left ear. Both are generally decorated by thin cords of woven gold leaf adorned with purple gem stones.
He wears a full suit of Mark IV armour decorated with the Palatine Aquila across the breast plate. His Chapter badge is sculpted and protrudes slightly from his left shoulder. A fine white loin cloth embroided with gold hangs between his legs. His left gauntlet has been modified into a small shield, designed like an eagles wing and painted gold.
Sebastian's primary weapon is a hand-and-a-half power sword called Spectre, named for it's pale silver colouring and the ghostly blur it becomes in it's owners hands. It is long and slender, double edged with a slit down the middle to reduce it's weight. Sebastian forged it himself and it is his single most prized possession. He also carries a larger than average combat knife that he can use to dual wield with Spectre. Lastly he carries a standard Umbra Ferrox pattern bolter.
Personality: Sebastian is a typical Emperor's Children Legionary, proud and elegant in both appearance and manner. Although typically aloof, he makes a great effort to be polite to those off all ranks and stations, believing rudeness to be inelegant and imperfect. Like his brothers he strives for perfection in all things and truly believes his Legion to be the greatest of all, leading to some competition when in the company of those of other Legions, especially when slighted, even in jest.
Sebastian is highly competitive, both on the wider field of battle as a leader, but more earnestly as a sole warrior and a swordsman. This leads him to search for duels whenever possible and has resulted in a number of friendly rivalries both within the Legion and beyond it.
Background: Sebastian was born on Chemos, the son of Miners. He was raised on stories of the past and the rise of the hero Fulgrim and was always encouraged to take an interest in the arts and culture, things that were denied to his ancestors. Sebastian became was a bright child and learned quickly. As he grew older he learned more and more of the Emperors Children and longed to join them. He knew that to do this he had to become the best at everything and so began his competitive streak as he longed to outdo his peers both intellectually and physically. He dedication paid off when at the age of 12 he was chosen to join the ranks of the Legions Astartes.
After completing his training, Sebastian was inducted into the 10th Company. He fought on a hundred battlefields and had become a Sergeant by the time the Legion came to Laeran. Though his squad fought valiantly throughout the campaign, they were excluded from the final assault and never reached the Laeran temple that would so effect the Legion's fate.
After the promotion of Captain Tarvitz, Sebastian was part of the Emperor's Children force under Lord Commander Eidolon who fought on Murder and it was here, in the midst of terrible casualties that he became a Lieutenant. Since their time on Murder Sebastian and Saul Tarvitz had become quite close and it is this relationship that led to Lieutenant Aureillian being deployed in the first wave to the Choral City.
Hope this is ok. It's a little rushed in a couple of places and I'm not up on all little details of the HH.
