"Knowledge is power. Guard it well."

+++ Motto of the Blood Ravens chapter +++​

019.M41 - Blood Ravens Battle Barge Litany of Fury - Father Librarian Clavios Josephus' cell

The whisper of voices unrecognized, telling the Father Librarian of things to come. They always spoke in whispers, these phantoms of the psyche. Their whispers filled him during his time of meditation, extending the tendrils of his perception to wrap around each voice and listen intently for anything of interest. Most of the time the voices chattered of events long gone, of things that not even he could perceive... Yet there was always that inescapable voice that escaped his perception. Always running at the first sign of the Father Librarians prodding. He knew the phantasm was Astartes. One of the reviled fallen. It spoke the black tounge, corrupted speech from the Book of Magnus. But in this hour of meditation the Father Librarian was determined to find this voice and listen to what it had to speak of.

Josephus began by extending his perception inch by inch into the void, taking care to stay away from the places of pure darkness and stay within what he perceived as areas of relative safety. At least safety one versed in protecting his mind from the daemons that turned psykers like him into agents of the respective Gods of Chaos. Suddenly his perceptive tendrils found the particular voice he was looking for, always cursing and speaking verses of heresy. He slowly inched his way towards the voice, making sure to take it slow as not to alert the spirit to his presence. All Josephus needed was to brush the voice, glean its information and decipher its intention in his minds eye. He was so close he could taste the acridity of the void, the intricately woven and arranged crystal mesh grew cold against the back of his shaven skull. He quickly extended his perception, finally catching the voice off guard. Josephus quickly wished his had diverted his attentions elsewhere, his tendrils retracting to his own mind as if he had been burned by a psychic fire. The foresight that flooded his mind was almost overwhelming, causing the crystals to form a frost over the pale skin of the back of his head as it attempted to compensate for the sudden rush of psychic energy. He could hear cries of agony, indistinct daemonic chatter and the laughing of a lone Thousand Sons sorcerer and finally the image of Kaurava III being immolated by green fire filled his mind. Blackness soon engulfed Josephus as the planet burned through and through.

Father Librarian? Father Librarian Josephus?

The codicer had visited the Father Librarians cell per request, only to find the librarian slouched over on the floor. He knelt down and shook his fellow astartes by his shoulder plate in an attempt to wake him. There was blood seeping from Josephus' nose a sign of over exertion. It took a few more tires until the Father Librarian would stir, his eyes fluttering for a few moments before he regained his senses.

Father Librarian, are you alright? I came bearing the list of Epistolaries that have been inducted into the Ordo Psykana as per your request. Only to find you in this state...

Yes... I am fine. But we have little time... I have seen the doom of Kaurava III. I will select the finest of the inductees. Five to be exact and you are to have them report to me. Hurry my brother, only the Ordo Psykana can combat this threat... For if we do not defeat this enemy they will spread doom across the Ultima Segmentum.

After placing the data slate at the corner of the slab Josephus used for his personal effects the codicer stood up quickly and nodded his head, turning and quickly striding back to the Librarium located deep within the battle barge Litany of Fury in preparation to carry out his next orders. Josephus waited until the codicer left to stand and deftly swipe at the blood with a cloth hanging from a rung near his armor stand. He threw the bloody cloth onto the slab and picked the data slate up and looked down. He considered the options. This was a fine bunch, ten in all. Selected to form two of the Ordo Psykanas strike teams. There was only need of six, the chosen he would call them... He slowly began to choose from the names listed.

(Thats your cue guys! If you're interested post your characters up and we'll get this RP started. First come first serve.)
Rules: (I only have a short list of rules. Please uphold them and the Rp will run as smooth as oil in a servo arm.)

1. Character deaths are possible, but will try to be avoided unless the player does something that gets him killed. Otherwise I'm going to try and keep everyone alive for the duration of the campaign.

2. Please be balanced with your equipment and weaponry. This needs little explanation as it'd be sorta lame if everyone had Storm Bolters and Krak Missile launchers. So please choose your characters effects wisely.

3. I realize that at times Real Life can come and bite us at any moment. Even so I ask that you post atleast every two days. If you can't do that PM me and I'll move the RP along controlling your character as if he were an NPC until you return. Please alert me if you're going to drop out or become bored with the RP. If you have an idea shoot me a line and I'll try my best to incorporate it into the RP.

4. Of course its turn based free form (By free form I mean there will be no dice rollers, injury and/or death will be at the discretion of the player in question and the GM.) With that said I ask you to be as reasonable as possible when battle scenes are playing out. Nobodies character is going to come out of the campaign without injury. Although all our characters are Psykers does not make them invincible.

5. No forcing another players characters. This also goes without saying, if you'd like another players character to perform an action ask him in a short OOC bubble at the beginning of the post. Otherwise you are to control only your character at all times.

6. This is a graphic RP with adult themes and gore. That means that there will be an occasional curse word or grisly death scene. Its just part of the RP.

With those rules in place I think the RP will be fun and free form as possible without letting players get too out of hand. If you have any ideas for more rules shoot me a line.


I am looking for a group of 5 players who are going to play as Psykana Epistolaries of the Blood Ravens Chapter. New recruits sent to undertake their first offensive against the forces of Thousand Sons Traitor marines. This squad must recover a page containing forbidden knowledge from The Book of Magnus and destroy the traitors inhabiting a Ordo Hereticus ship thought lost that has appeared from the warp in the Kaurava system and threaten to summon a Daemonic Champion on Kaurava III. As new inductees they will be accompanied by a Father Librarian (Played by me.)

If you'd like more information on the Secret Order of Psykana please read here.

Character Template: (Please be fairly descriptive.)

Name :






1. Projectile Weapon. (I. E. Bolter, Melta, Flamer and Plasma Weapons. All squad members must have one of these.)

2. Close Combat Weapon (In this RP close combat weapons will consist of any Eldar Power Weapon with the exception of Scorpions Claw, Shuriken Pistol, Singing Spear or Wailing Doom. Also I've decided to add Imperial Power Weapons to the mix as well, keep in mind that the weapon is linked to the Beacon Psykana. So once you choose your weapon you're bound to the Beacon as well.)

3. Side Arms (Such as Bolt or Las Pistols. Nothing too powerful. Just something you'd use when all other weapons are out of use or lost to your character.)

4. Krak or Frag grenades. (Four for each Psykana Member)

Equipment: (A brief description of Power Armor and any other systems and equipment. Artificer armor is allowed. No terminator armor or dreadnoughts please. As this is treated as a sort of tactical strike team. As a side note all Psykana members are required to wear a psychic hood.)


Now for my Father Librarians character template.

+ Name +

Father Librarian Clavios Josephus

+ Age +

Exactly five hundred standard imperial years

+ Appearance +

Standing at the height of exactly seven feet, not overly muscular but built large enough to exude a commanding presence. His hair is non existent, keeping the normally jet black locks shaven to the scalp. His eyes are of a gray matter, his patrician facial features and copper tone skin are strikingly similar to Chapter Master Azariah Kyras.

His face bears no ills marks or scars, only service studs crafted from the darkest crimson jewels adorn his right brow in recognition of his many years of service to the chapters librarium.

Other distinguishing marks include the Chapter Symbol branded just below his right eye and the symbol of the Adeptus Astra Telepathica set in the center of his forehead. This delicate metallic emblem often glints like a third eye, just above the temple.

+ Personality +

After the indoctrination and induction into the Blood Ravens Josephus turned out to be a difficult soldier to lead. His abilities as a psyker were manifesting more and more rapidly. He was so confused about everything- all these new things he had experienced, the memory loss on a massive scale, and the uncanny ability to flip an ork warlord on it's back. He was terrified at the new situation and grew to have a displeased manner about him, introversion and self thought became all that Josephus seemed interested in. Josephus was constantly on a quest for self-discovery, trying to find information about himself that he didn't know- he didn't understand why these things were happening to him, and why "him". Josephus wished that it was someone else, someone different, someone without a family.. Someone who didn't care about how they were viewed by other people; most "normal" people would get terrified when someone ran past them like a taurian bull or sent a speeder bike soaring with a simple demonstration of strength. He hated it back then, and he hated the fact that he couldn't find his purpose within the chapter. Until his inception into the Librarium where he would be taught and tutored by the finest Psykers and teachers of his chapter.

Though, over the many years prior to his induction into the Ordo Psykana, he had grown accustom and accepted his fate as a librarian. He would never question how he was blessed by the emperor with these strange powers, nor would he care anymore. His duty was to the Emperor of Mankind and the Great Father. His hatred against all things chaos manifests into him saving others from the pathetic fate that many other unfortunate people had suffered- specifically: turning into a plaything of the Dark Gods. He grew to be skilled, wise, and knew more about the lore of chaos then most librarians during his time as an epistolary. He knew weaknesses, strengths, behavior patterns and the way most chaos beings acted. He was what someone would call a "veteran"- he's seen it all and lived through it all to tell the tale, though, not without help from his genetic augmentation. He saved countless people and killed countless warp spawn- it's a statistic he's glad to have made. With the new outbreak of chaos activity in it's beginning stages, he knew all the paths and what he would do- he's been through it once before and survived it, what's another undertaking going to do? Josephus is ruthless to enemies and selfless to others in the imperium that serve the emperor in earnest - he knows how it feels to be in a situation such as this, and he tries his best to remedy the situation whenever possible for the betterment of his Ordo, His chapter and the Imperium of man.

+ Background +

Hailing from Trontiux III, Hive city Marche in the Ultima Segmentum. Clavios Josephus was born exactly five hundred standard imperial years ago to parents of a now unkown origin. His psyker powers began to manifest at the age of six, during a traumatic experience he unleashed a torrent of psychic lighting incinerating both of his parents and four other occupants of different hab units. This marked him as a prime candidate for the Scholastica Psykana or more to say the Secret Masters of the Blood Ravens and the few Father Librarians of the Ordo Psykana. They recognized the raw and untapped psychic potential that was predicted to later become a hero to the chapter and the Ordo.

Five years of training with the Scholastia Psykana and indoctrination to the Blood Ravens chapter moulded his mind and soul. After his initial training with the psykana he was placed as a Lexicanum under the Librarian Raphaelus. Raphaelus was a member of the Ordo Psykana in secret and began to tutor Josephus in the ways if the Librarian, turning the young man into a potent codicer and later on an even more powerful Epistolary. A full hundred years had passed and he was finally inducted into the ranks of the Librarium as a full fledged Librarian. Although this position was to be short lived

During The Rahe's Paradise Discovery. A Dark Eldar Autarch challenged Josephus on the fields of Rahe's Paradise. During an earlier battle the same Autarch immolated his mentor infront of him with psychic energy. Josephus cursed the Eldar name and vowed revenge upon meeting the xeno again. The battle was intense and even the Father Librarian overseeing the battle was aghast at the onslaught that Josephus unleashed. Fierce melee combat ensued and by the time the battle was done with all Eldar within striking range of Josephus was burnt and slashed. It was said that he kept the Autarch alive and aware for hours by sheer will while he scoured the Eldar with psychic lightning.

These and other heroic actions had impressed the Ordo Psykana and Chapter Master alike, a promotion to Father Librarian soon followed. Many years and martial engagments later Josephus is called by the Emperor through a psychic vision to find a lost page from the Book of Magnus and destroy its knowledge. For if it were to be unleashed the entire galaxy would go up in flames....

Name : Lucius Ol'thaka

Age: 46

Appearance: Ol'thaka is a pale skinned, thick built Marine with a Large black scar down the right side of his face, he is a very tall marine. His eyes are an eery electric blue, that glow with the power of the aether

Personality: A very stern, rule abiding marine, who is difficult to anger and has near complete mastery of his emotions, if you manage to make him angry, it will most likely be the last thing you do.

Background: Lucius was originally inducted to the Blood Ravens at the age of 16, and even as a scout excelled mentally, as soon as he became a full battle brother he was inducted into the Ordo Psykana as he showed potent Psychic capabilities during his first crusade as a battle brother, when he was struck on the right side of his face with a plaguereaper, which caused the black scar, but even with the poison of Father Nurgle running through his veins he used his Psychic abilities to rip his opponent limb from limb. after this battle he was approached by Father Librarian Clavios Josephus who asked him to join the Order. Ol'thaka had always appreciated the beauty of the Eldars weaponry so when he was given the choice he chose a Mirrorsword as his Close combat weapon, he then went on to face an Eldar battlefleet with the Ordo where he killed a Howling Banshees Exarch and took his Triskele and now uses it in place of a Bolter or other long range weapon.

Weapons: Triskele (projectile weapon), Mirrorsword, Bolt pistol, 2 Frag & 2 Krak Grenades

Equipment: Psychic hood, Artificer armour, with a custom gauntlet that is designed to hold his Triskele, bionics

I'm gonna use an altered version of one of my other characters.

Name: Aurio Daverin

Age: 198

Apperance: Aurio is a giant among the Astartes standing at an imposing eight feet tall and almost the width of two large men, he has pure white eyes which seem to cut into your very soul, which was also mocked about for most of his early life untill he was picked for the Chapter.
Aurio also has a long ropey scar down the left side of his face from a near miss from a World Eaters chain axe, his dark blonde hair, is shoulder length and often tied back in a pony-tail.

Wargear: Aurio uses his ancient Force Sword Siloe and his Meltagun Ilea named after his Father and Mother as well as a flamer pistol which he always seems to either break or lose. Aurio recentley earned a Crux Terminatus. Aurio usually make use of a Jump Pack as well.

Personality: Aurio is usually quite quiet and keeps to himself unless prompted by others, that is untill battle where he will be found bellowing and roaring the Emperor's name and litanys of hatred. Aurio can usually be found in the armoury with his weapons.
Aurio also thinks it to be foolish and not right to use Xenos weaponry.

Backround: Aurio was fathered by an average middle class Siloe man who worked as a welder and his mother Ilea who worked in the Govenor's palace. Untill one day whenhis Father and Mother were brutally murdered by his Fathers employers lackeys, the men left him barely alive thinking that he would be no threat...they were wrong...over the course of a year after his wounds had healed Aurio hunted down the six men and slowly killed four of them, he was almost discovered as he was working on the fifth and had to throw him over a nearby cliff into the ocean.

The sixth however by now had hired four Bodyguards, Aurio by now did not care wether he lived or not and so took the most direct approach, in the dead of night Aurio gathered his only weapons, his combat knife of a good foot of steel and a sledge hammer, and his eyes...then entered the house.
The next day the officals discovered four corpses nailed to the front of the house three of which had crushing damage to their arms legs and heads, and a fifth who was found with pure white hair and a look of unimagineable terror on his face that several people fainted as they looked.
Genoscans were run and Aurio was discovered, but by then he had been chosen to become an Astartes.

It was revealed however that what he could do with his eyes was a form of psychic ability and he was immediatly given over to the Librarius to be trained where he learned how to use his eyes at will instead of for revenge among other things.

Name: Pericles Orate

Age: 337

Appearance: Pericles is average height for a space marine of the blood raven chapter. His ice blue eyes hide the true power that he can wield to deadly effect. His brown hair is shortly cropped. He has a scar along his right arm, starting from the waist and ending at the shoulder. Apart from that he has no scars upon his athletic body.

Personality: Pericles is a fairly strict marine. He follows the codex of the chapter keenly and is often found meditating, scrying and training both his mind and his body. He frowns upon the more relaxed of his brethren. He knows that as a librarian A moment of laxity spawns a lifetime of heresy. However he is a vicious fighter and will try not to give ground away. He will constantly try to seek answers to his questions, even if they are not in his best interest. This has led to him questioning superiors and earning a reputation among his peers.

Background: Pericles was born on a feral world, not far from one of the recruiting worlds of the blood ravens, Cyrene. At a young age, he was regarded as different from others on his world. He was strange in their eyes, they feared him and the power that he may utilise when he was older. So the villages drove him from the village, chasing after him. However Pericles was lucky. The Blood Ravens were searching the world for psyker children for recruitment into the chapter as Librarians. He was taken away and spirited to Omnis Arcanum. He began his training and walked the path of the librarian. His mind was opened to knowledge that he could only dream off. However like all Librarians the power he would use comes at a price. He would become susceptible to the whispers of the ruinous powers.

Pericles has served in many notable missions, the kind of which are recorded in detail in the chapters history. On the planet Ultrathon he and two squad of Blood Ravens from the fourth company held the ruins of The Emperor's Shrine from the Eldar, trying to recover a lost artefact. Under his guidance the squads was able to meet any Eldar attacks and repulse them with minimal loses. On the Death World of Siolipus Pericles was responsible for the death of a thousand son sorcerer, fighting his way through his automaton bodyguards with the 3rd company, before smiting him down with his Force Weapon. He used his powers on the battlefield of Tarus I to destroy the ork warboss Bigutz, halting the Waaaagh! that threatened the world. He has defeated countless foes, and will continue to do so.

Wargear: Force Weapon in the shape of a maul, Pericles prefers Imperial technology to that of the Eldar or other xeno races. His weapon has been linked with the Beacon Psykana and Pericles has named it "tacit". Pericles carries a bolter, that spews hot death to those that dare stand before him. He has a bolt pistol, which he rarely uses. In fact the last time he used it was when he fought the Chaos Sorceror almost a hundred years previous. He maintains his side arm however, knowing that he may once again need to call upon it. He wears artificer armour, ornate with one shoulder pad with the chapter signal. His artificer armour is linked with his psychic hood and carries 4 Krak grenades.

Name : Thantos Enikteous

Age: 479

Appearance: Dark brown skin. A single cloudly blue eye. His left side of his face, up to his left eye, and his right leg up to mid-waist has been replaced by bionics after being mauled by a Mawloc. His skin bears many scars, on in particular is a small purple pinkish scar in the center of his abdomen. Out from it stems small purple spirals, which reach ever further with every passing decade.

Personality: Viscous fighter. Even by Astartes standards, he had lightning fast reactions, almost one par with that of the Emperor's Children of Slaanesh, and is subjected to the constant vigilance of the Chapters senior Librarians and Chaplins. However, his faith is sure and incorruptible, and his determination and force of will know no bounds. Outside of battle, he is quite friendly and talkative. Once the battle is started, he is ruthless and steadfast in his purpose. Once given an objective, he will not rest until it is completed. He is generally distrusted by people who learn of his origin and the mark on his chest, and so is eager to prove his devotion to the Emperor, more so than regular marines.

Background: Originally a high sergeant of the 5th company. Some of his notable actions were the war on Aldria Prime. This agri-world was being besieged by Tyranid forces of an unknown Hive Fleet. His squad was separated from the main force by a Mawloc attack, which had relieved itself directly underneath Thantos, resulting in the loss of a large portion of the left side of his face and his right leg. The Mawloc then set about devouring his squad, but Thantos fired his plasma pistol into the side of the mawlocs face, drawing it's attention. He then proceeded to destroy it's face and brain matter with a volley of quickly fired plasma shots, which was very risky given the temperamental and possible hazardous nature of plasma technology.

His other main notable action was on Truvia VI. Here the Blood Ravens faced a warband of the Emperor's Children. In the first drop, the commanding officer was killed by AA fire, and his drop pod sent broken into a bottomless gorge. Thantos then took command. Although the crusade was long and bloody, Thantos forced the noise marines back until the were faced with their last bastion. As the walls crumbled under the repeated fire of vindicators, Thantos' men broke through. Thantos faced the Chaos champion in single combat. Thantos wielded his power sword and plasma pistol, but the Chaos champion wielded a Blissgiver. Whilst they were both Astartes, the Chaos Chapion has the blessings of Slaanesh, so was faster than even Thantos. Eventually, the Chaos champion broke through his defense and scraped the skin of his chest. However, is was enough to send Thantos into a coma of ecstasy.

Whilst the battle raged around his writhing corpse, a battle was taking place in Thantos' mind. He was fighting a losing battle to overcome the imbued of the daemon in the blissgiver and escape from the coma. As if he was tied to the fate of the planet, whenever he was about to lose, it looked like the loyalist forces would lose, and whenever he started to win slightly, the Emperor's children were pushed back. This continued for several hours, until in one last desperate push, Thantos broke free of his shackles and gasped upright. Around was a scene of pure carnage, corpses everywhere, but the banners of the Blood Ravens were still held high. In his break-out of the coma, he has also broken a barrier between his mind and the warp, and started to manifest psychic powers. However, he was not yet free from Chaos taint. Where the Blissgiver had pierced his skin, there was a purple scar, with thin faint purple spirals coming off of it. Many feared it was a sign of corruption, but Thantos pleaded his faith, and swayed the objections. However, he was place under near constant supervision of the highest ranking Librarians and Chaplins which were to enact the Emperor's mercy at the first signs of his corruption.

Weapons: Flamer, Force rod, Bolt pistol and Frag grenades

Equipment: Psychic hood which has thin wraithbone vein which helps the psychic hood act in a similar way to a Ghost helm. The reason for this was, as he has escaped the clutch of a daemon before, and bares the peculiar mark on his chest, it was suspected that he would be more liable to daemonic possession, and as such a Ghost helm was stripped back and part of it inserted so that his psychic hood acts like a ghost helm, masking his presence in the warp from daemons. Artificer armour which has several anti-chaos wards and lithergies to offer Thantos as much protection as possible. Obviously, a large portion of his body is bionics.

Hope this is ok!

I guess I'll give it a shot, psykers are cool let me know what you think

Name: Terrance Mirakia

Age: 92

Appearance: Mirakia is a decently built Astarte, black hair, green eyes, with a scar running across his left eye. His left hand has an Aquila tattoo on it.

Personality: Mirakia is a quiet character, one who prefers to wait for the right moment to speak. As such, he is viewed as a wise man, only saying what has to be said. In battle he is a passionate fighter, but is not without mercy. He prefers to hang around the ballistic weapons bay, and train with his guns, himself being something of a gun fanatic.

Background: Mirakia was a native of Karuva II, and lived a simple life in the Betris hive on the planets main continent. However, when the warp storm broke, Mirakia found his simple life shattered when orks descended upon the planet, ripping it apart.

It was also at this time that his latent psyker abilities came into fruitation. The warp storm cause massive headaches that at first made even moving painful. Then cam freakish incidents, one where he even fried his own bedding.

Mirakia was conscripted into the Guard at 17, something of a child soldier as the ranks of the PDF were depleted from the orks constant attacks. He found himself fighting side by side with the newly arrived “Emporers’ Angels of Death(the Blood Raven). He attracted the likeness of Gervina, a Astartes Librarian, who detected Mirakia's "special talents." Mirakia's unit often worked with Gervina's unit. When the Blood Ravens pulled out of the system, he requested that Mirakia be brought back and trained as an Librarian. After testing, and years of training, Mirakia was added to the ranks of the Librarians of the Blood Ravens.

Weapons: Narsil te Emporer(Light of the Emporer) blade, Plasma pistol, psychic hood, artificer armor, cloak(black with red trim

Deus and Ramo. Accepted. Once a few more people post characters I can get started on the action forum. No rush though guys, i'd like for you guys to put some real effort into these characters I am thinking an ongoing storyline for "The Chosen" or the Ordo Psykana.

Emperors Hand is accepted! Although it is very rare for an adult to be selected let alone survive the implantation and indoctrination process. I will allow it as a rare happening within the Librarium based on the potential Mirakia has

I guess that makes it a squad of six! APPLICATIONS ARE NOW CLOSED!

I'd like to run the basis off this RP into a short story when I am done, with the permissions of the characters players. But I digress...

Let us persecute the Dark Foe!

Out of curiosity, how old was Terrance Mirakai when he was taken to be turned into a space marine?

Emperors Hand.

We might have to revise your characters profile a bit. I'd suggest something to the effect of he was a child soldier and an Ordo Psykana librarian found him during the ork invasion.

Also I dont think someone could just learn how to control their psyker incidents, again I'd suggest altering that to where he had some tutelage from a librarian. Because if he were classified as a Psyker they would send him on a black ship, whereas he would be placed as either a Primary Psyker or Secondary.

You dont have to switch your entire profile up, just shape it up a little more and add a bit more description. If you need an example or some inspiration look at my Father Librarians character sheet on the first post in the thread. I want you guys to make characters that you are going to have fun with. I've left the template as loose as possible to allow us to have fun while still feeling like our characters could very well die at any time.

How about sixteen when the storm happened and just about seventeen when he was inducted into the Scholastica Psykana.

That would make it feasible without having to make you change your profile too much.

Name :Aaron

Age: 50

Appearance: Brown hair, that gently flows across one of his eyes and he has a tendency to flick it away with a short subconscious twitch. His eyes have been described many times as beautiful and are a deep mixture of blue green and grey. His face is cute, a pretty boy in fact and he looks far younger than he actually is, whilst his height even before he became an astartes luckily disguises the flaws that mark his skin, yet which he refuses to have removed.

He is rather pale, the blood of his face seeming to congregate in two red cheeks.

For an astartes he is tall, far above average height, his muscles small, his abilities in combat still developing and as yet untested in true combat, and his rise through the order psykana has been quick through his strong psychic potential and studious nature.

Personality: Studious, bookish and thus rather quiet and introverted. However he is judgemental and believes he is most definitely right all the times and is willing to voice his opinion against his elders and betters. As for obeying orders, he is obedient yet if he sees a better way he will take it without consulting his superiors which can indeed get him into trouble.

Though he has is independent and does make mistakes he is always willing to take the blame, learns from the lessons and his self belief is unshakeable which can make him seem pigheaded and unruly. This combined with his unhoned combat abilities could be a recipe for disastor as he is truly unable to see his own weaknesses, his belief making him think he can carry himself through any situation.

As a character he does not desire to be disliked yet he is socially retarded and finds it difficult to interact with others as he has never really had friends that he remembers and he treats his brothers more as trusted acquaintances than friends.

Background: Aaron's life is both a tragedy and a wonderful tale in equal measure. His psychic talent manifested strongly at the age of 4 and he was held as part of the tithe for many years until the black ship came to pick him up. In his time in holding he was cut off from humanity, given bread and water, his only companions books that he was given. His knowledge grew though the experiences of the holding and the travel scared him beyond belief young as he was and he lost all concept of his humanity seeing himself as a burden and an object rather than a person.

His ability meant he was a highly prized prisoner upon the blackship and the mournful tithes of psykers made his mood sourer, his personality more introverted, their isolation and silence turning him in upon himself.

Aaron was seperated out, seen as one of the more talented members of the group and during his training he developed his first close relationship, indeed he fell in love with a woman. After seeing him in training she praised his talents, her beauty and honeyed words, boosting his self confidence to new levels. He followed her like a dog, desperate for yet more self confidence and her admiration turned to detestation, she despised his neediness and though she never told him, she was greatful when she was moved away to become an astropath.

However this one relationship and the words she spoke have given him an inferno of self belief and now his progress began to increase at an exponential rate and he began to take great strides to achieving his potential.

It took him 4 years, and at the age of 15 that he was inducted into the blood ravens chapter and hence the Order Psykana.

For the last 35 years he has studied under various tutelages in the ways of the librarian. Now he comes out, newly promoted and newly versed ready to travel the stars for the first time. Such sights, such scenes and now combat awaits him...


1. Projectile Weapon: Prefers a melta gun, short range and the large target of a tank helps cover his ineptitude.

2. Close Combat Weapon: This long eldar power sword was not his weapon of choice yet he was surprised to find the sword seemed warm in his hand even as he tried to move it aside. The weapon indeed chose him and now he prefers the long blade of this eldar sword, which allows him to keep his opponents at length, The hilt is covered with gems and jewels, a single long line of gold running down the haft to a finger hold, his long fingers perfectly rapping around the hilt, the blade glittering the beautiful silver of a moon reflected in the water.

3. Side Arms: Bolt pistol

4. 3 frag, krak grenade

Equipment: Normal power armour, marked with 2 runes on his chest and 2 on his back to protect him against the perils of chaos, he also bears a psychic hood.


Hope it's ok, a bit unsure and tentative, the blood ravens are not my specialty.
