Heres my offering to this fine thread, hope its of acceptable quality. If anything is missing it will be updated in short order wanted to throw this in before recruitment closed.
Name: 'Old' Vargus Lex
Age: 957 standard
Homeworld: Kerrion VII - Rogue Planet kept alive entirely through nutriovats and highly exploited geothermal plants. Was Launched out of orbit during a violent Fleet battle in which a Nova shell detonated causing large spread damage to the planet exposeing large chunks of the planets mantle and sending it spinning out of system. Prior to this the planet had been a highly stable forge world producing Guard issue engineering equipment.
Geneseed: Iron Hands
Appearence: Half of his face from the left side is replaced with a bionic shell along with both eyes following a Plasma bolt glancing his head. His right arm is also bionic following a danger-close artillery barrage during an assault on an Ork held Forge world. Following his Gene-seed inplantation his body became taller bringing him to 2.5m tall. His body is largely hairless due to extensive burn scarring caused by the aforementioned barrage.
Personality: Called 'The Old' or simply 'Old' due to his propensity for reminiscing over past events when not busy with his duties, he prefers to approach things slowly and methodically taking questions on his approach from those below him as well as above for he is quite aware that one day he will no longer be there to lead regardless of how mighty be could become and believes the more understanding his own troops have of his approach to the orders he recieves the better they will be able to operate without his oversight.
Rank: Captain of the 10th Company Master of Recruits
Armour: Power Armour suit consists primarily of MkVI components however his right pauldron is comprised of a MkV ripped from the corpse of a fallen Ork Mega-Nob who had looted it from a loyalist mere hours before the Grand company had reached the systems jump point. His Left gauntlet contains two sliding panels used for storing equipment(see Wargear). His armour is normally covered with a deep cloak made from the Hide of an Ambull which arose during an attack on an Imperial Hive world
Gear: Always keeps two Double ended Short Power Blades mounted on Armour fired spring launchers within the left gauntlet which can be disabled through the armours system controls. Wields a Chainsword with a double sided head, Carries a Plasma pistol as a reminder of the injury he sustained earlier in his life. Always wears his cloak unless the situation renders it disadvantageous which is lined with mono blades along the bottom edge. Though he does prefer to use long range prescision the desire for versility has caused him to adopt the standard issue boltgun with a telescopic sight as his mainstay weapon though he does occasionally utilise stripped down Autocannons if heavier sniper cover is required.
Description: At a young age was conscripted for the revolt against the Imperium and the Planetary Governor, or as it was known 'that hole in the planet being used for power generation' this was a rather quick takeover as almost the entire Imperial Command was destroyed during the Nova blast which knocked the planet out of alignment and was never really re-established with all of the Local nobles vieing for control of the planet. A few Years after the Coup the XIXth Iron Warriors dropped out of the warp due to a Storm erupting against their passage. Locating the world of Kerrion VII they prepared to invade only to find the world without imperial influence.
Descending to the planet they quickly bought the planets allegiance with a collection of sandwiches. The planet now happily sworn to their service with their living conditions improved even with their servitude too the XIXth in raising warriors to be tithed to the training grounds of the XIXth. Following his training under the previous master of recruits he along with other Neophytes underook numerous infiltrations of planetary settlements prior to bombardment in situations where full startes presence wasnt required. After he received his promotion to full Astartes of the XIXth he continued his role in the Xth company leading the others whos place he had previously been in. During one assault against a stongly defended imperial system warp activity delayed the majority of the fleet resulting in the ship bearing the Xth company arriving in system one week before the main force. Nonetheless the at that time holder of Captain ordered the deployment of the force onto the hiveworld of Carens Grace. Four days later the sytem was hit by Waaaaagh BloodZappa. For three days the hidden members of the tenth company held out amidst the swirling engagements of the guard and ork forces fighting in only what engagements they could take until the rest of the fleet arrived.
On that day the Ork forces finally stormed the last great hive of the world slaying both the Crimson fist reinforcements and its human garrison. It was then upon hearing the arrival of the fleet to be relative moments from achieving orbit the tenth struck a preliminary blow against the ork heirachy taking the knowledge they had gleamed from observing the other companies to lead their actions they attacked the Ork heirachy with the Ork warboss being located by Vargus who was at the time a Sergeant. After engaging the Warbosses guard in battle the squad was reduced from 10 to but 3 warriors of iron knowing his force was insufficient to eliminate the Ork Vargus sent a request for a airstrike on his position and sent his two remaining recruits to rendevous with their captain. Moments of intense whirling melee passed between the Warboss and Vargus before the Phosphex shells landed. The result of the first shells as they reached the position of the right was immediate the blast destroying the Ork warboss and Vargus' right arm, also causing secondary explosions destabilising the level of the hive they were in sending Vargus to fall to the level below crashing through several layers of poorly maintained rusted maintenance pipes. His body was found a few hours later by the toughened remnants of the tenth performing cleanup duty to collect those critically injured.
