So, remember this guy?
Othalman Roth 'Chain Dog' of the 31st assault company, 12th Legion World Eaters.
The fighting pits of the 12th legion appeared uncontrolled and chaotic to the rememberancers that accompanied the 12th legion on the great crusade. If they had been able to remain with the legion longer they may have witnessed the individuals that controlled the pit fights, keeping the traditions of the legion and in turn protecting the warrior spirit of the 12th.
The pits of the World Eaters were overseen by a number of veteran warriors whose role was to enforce the rules and conduct of the pits and dispense punishment upon those that repeatedly transgressed against those rules. A legionary that earned the wrath of a pit lord may incur a literal breaking of the chains used to bind his weapons to his arms during combats, signifying a breaking of the bonds of brotherhood and a source of shame for said legionary.
The ritual of breaking earned the chains earned the pit lords the moniker of 'Chain Dogs' and it was these respected individuals that would be prove to be the perfect candidates for newly devised chaplain edict.
This model came together an absolute treat. Hugely inspired by the chaplain that Poom did as you can see by the power maul so thanks must go to him. Hopefully my short piece of background writing gets across my idea well enough, my thoughts are a little muddled this evening as I'm just flippin knackered.
Anyhoes, let me know what you think about him.
