Keywords: <Character> <Viper Legion> <Adeptus Astartes> <Imperium> <Roul Valectus> 


Strategos Roul Valectus came to the knowledge of the Viper Legion during his days as a mercenary on the planet Aurelius. His personal band of mercenaries, the Hounds of Roul, were known throughout the planet for their almost unthinkable savagery and bravery against all odds. Once he joined the Viper Legion he steadily rose through the ranks until becoming a Strategos after on and a half centuries of service. After his promotion, the cohort led by him (6th) has adopted many of the habits of his old mercenary band, including the usage of wolf symbols and furs. Every time Roul returns to the Fortress monastery, usually after long campaigns, he asks the priests overseeing the new recruits for news about his now over 300 years old mercenary band and for his great pride is often greeted with news about their newest victories and glorious conquests.

Gaze of Keyser: Each turn before shooting phase Inquisitor Staga may choose one enemy unit. His acolytes have +1 to hit against that unit during that shooting phase.


Keywords: <Character> <Inquisitor> <Imperium> <Keyser Staga> 


Inquisitor Keyser Staga is known throughout the Aura Sector for his sharp with and utter ruthlessness when dealing with heretical cults. Countless cult rebellions have been prevented by him and his acolytes, and for that the imperium is ever grateful for him. However lately his actions have brought him lot of shame as a huge rebellion against the imperium sparked almost literally under his feet, taking away his reputation and his acolytes (who gave their lives trying to correct the mistake made by their master). Now he has embarked on a quest for redemption by crushing every last heretic and traitor on the planet of Bifrost, with only the ever loyal Viper Legion standing with him.

Keywords: <Character> <Viper Legion > <Imperium> <Psycher> 


Marcian Rubicos is the current Librarian Minor of the 3rd great cohort. This means that while he has served the chapter for almost a century, he isn’t considered as skilled as the Librarian Major of the great cohort, who has mentored him through the years. Still his presence on the battlefield can be felt by anyone around him, due to him focusing in protecting his allies with his powers, rather than smiting his enemies to oblivion. During a mission on an Inquisition ship swarmed by daemons, the whole boarding party was nearly overwhelmed by the daemons and their grim leader, Brisus “the Mad Primarch”. If it wasn’t for the relic blade that by luck, or by fate, was picked up by Marcian, Brisus would’ve ended them then and there. Marcian used the blade to deal a single blow to Brisus, who had taken a moment to gloat on his victory. The Blade showed it’s anti daemon powers on that moment as the Mad primarch was filled with unimaginable pain, forcing him to retreat with his daemons or risk losing control of them.
