Chapter of Origin: White Scars
Type of Marine: Battle Brother
Personality: As a White Scar, Ghati was loyal to The Emperor, Primarch and Chapter. He solemn face never betrayed emotion except for when in battle. He was respectful, carefully piecing together his sentences as was taught him long ago in his Old Life.
He is a conduit of loyalty and is the rock in which his battle brothers can place their faith. He is unyielding in his fight against the enemies of The Imperium.
Physical Appearance: His hair in a traditional topknot was lack and partially braided. He is of average height, yet lean, thinner than most of his battle brothers. This has allowed him to move quicker and strike harder with grace and power, earning him commendations from his sergeants in the past, despite his youth.
His skin is a dark shade of copper, standing in contrast to the pearl white of his power armor.His face is unblemished of scar tissue, yet has tattoos of ancient Chogoris writs and verses of old songs. They remain as a reminder of the ancient legends of Lightning Warriors his tribe worshiped fervently.
Background: Ghati was born and raised on his Chapters homeworld, Chogoris or as The Imperium calls it, Mundus Planus. He was a small lean son of a farmer that won the contest of arms against rival boys and men to join the ranks of The Scars.
His induction to the Chapter shaped him into the Marine he is currently, taller, stronger than he had ever been. He learned very quickly that the sword was more than just a weapon, but a living entity, one with his own spirit. He was promoted from scout to Battle Brother of The 2nd Company.
His life became a whirlwind learning and victory and defeat. His skill with a bolter was well enough but compared to his bladework, his bolter was considered a secondary weapon. He fights with dual blades as did the Lightning Warriors of legend and each defeat taught him a lesson of swordplay. On an Eldar outpost world in a backwater system with no name, Ghati came to cross blades with Dire Exarch. When his squad and the rival Eldar came to intervene, he bid them to stay back. He wanted to test himself in battle time and time again. The battle between the two was furious as it was quick. At the turning point of the skirmish, The Eldar suffered a grievous wound, a strike through a lung and retreated. When the Eldar squad came to the Exarch, they were cut down in a whirl of bolter fire.
His tale of swordsmanship against an Exarch was heard by the Chapter and made its way to the Inquisition, who apparently decided that his skills would make proper use of the conduit he was for The Emperor. They called upon him, listing it "an honour that is not easily dismissed." He felt he cold not deny the Emperors work and went off, young and anxious, into the unknown.
Armour Appearance: His armor is standard Mk IV Maximus armor. Along the trim of his armour was engraved the names of fallen brothers who wore the armour before he had acquired it. Each name is a brother whose honour would be restored wwith each kill Ghati made.
