Tyber

Chapter: Dragons of Caliban
Rank: Iron Scale
Deathwatch Specialism: Assault
Character Sheet: Link

Appearance:
Brother Tyber by most accounts is a giant by Astartes, large and powerfully built. Every aspect of Tyber had been finely crafted to create this specimen of transhuman perfection. Closely cropped blond hair is kept neat and tidily under his helm, his blue/grey eyes take everything in. Tyber carries himself, almost as if he were a smaller shadow of his primarch.

 

Tyber’s armour, like him reads new, it moves with a supply fluid action, it makes no groans or grinds of age, the plates interlock with easy. The machine spirt of the armour drives Tyber to be in the front, to work to his goal of leadership of his chapter. His helm takes a more knightly look, with the closed respirator often seen as a variant of the Mk. VII helm, this helm does not look out of place on the Mk. VIII Errant that Tyber wares. Over his armour he is draped in an iron grey tabard, each lower side of the tabard is angled in slightly to form a slight point between his knees, with a slit running up the center to his sword and pistol belt that is formed from dark, thick scaly leather.

Personality:
Tyber is driven to be the best, to reach his own command faster than any of his kin in history, this drive does come with a cost, his ambition can be misinterpreted as arrogance. Despite his drive, he is not above recognising his own inexperience and seeking advice from senior Astartes, even if it will remove all doubt in their minds that he is still green.

 

There seems to have bee a change in his personal goals while on mission, as he seems to have lost interest in command of his brothers, rather he seems to be singuraly focused on being better than someone named Cadius, it is recommended that our intelligence assets try to locate information on this Cadius so that we may be better placed to asses his goals.

Experience:
Tyber’s experience is limited, once issued his first suite of power armour; he was pressed into an assault squad that would be the vanguard of the latest crusade for the Dragons of Caliban when they stumbled onto a world of metal robotic skeletons. During the engagement with these metal skeletons, Tyber would find himself standing shoulder to shoulder with the command squad of his company when they found themselves overrun when metal skeletons with blade like hands burst from underground around them. This action would place Tyber as the standard bearer in their next engagement as a reward for his bravery and selflessness.

Brother Daon Akkad

Chapter of Origin: Astral Claws

Role upon Induction: Veteran Sergeant (Devastator Squad Akkad)

Deathwatch Specialism: Devastator

Character Sheet: 

 

Veteran Sergeant Daon Akkad
Akkad Unhelmed

 

Appearance:

Brother Akkad is of slightly smaller build than most Adeptus Astartes, but still benefits fully from all his implants and genehancements.  His is completely at home in his power armour, having almost lived in it every day of his life with his Chapter.  His face carries two scars, one on the left cheek which was the result of an Orkish axe, the other earned above his right eye when his helm was breached fighting the hellspawn of the Maelstrom.  He keeps his brown hair cropped short for comfort under his helm, but otherwise wears his centuries well.  He eschews service studs or tattooing, instead relying upon his natural Perception or heraldic battle markings to identify others of a similar service.

 

His armour is well maintained, but lacks a patient machine-spirit, that matches the pride of the lion he displays on his shoulder.  His left gauntlet has had the tips of the fingers refurbished to hold a point, thus forming the striking arm of the lion.  His heraldic device is a mix of new and old - his loyalty to his Chapter and to Badab is obvious by his refusal to change to the Tyrant's personal panoply.  When fitted for the Deathwatch, his right should bears a golden/black Lions' head on a blue field, surrounded with a golden rim.  The Blue field and trim together denote his Veteran Sergeant status.

 

Personality:

Akkad is distant to all but his kin. Politics however plays a strong role in the matter of his leaving his parent Chapter and like any stray this has made him more malleable than most of his more inflexible brethren.  He comes from a Noble house and therefore has a grain of superiority that runs through him, but this is mostly manifested in his beliefs that Humanity must be protected, but the pinnacle of that defence are the Space Marines and all must bow before them.  The Astartes are autonomous and hold ancient rites and rights that allow them a free reign as long as it is to "Defend and uphold the Imperium and safeguard those souls and worlds within it." Which is the decree given by the High Lords of Terra to the Maelstrom Warders at conception.

Akkad believes firmly that en-masse human troops are useful, when fielded with support but normal humans are weak, fragile and incapable of defending themselves.

 

Akkad can be stand-offish and arrogant at worst and cold and clinical at best, but these are all tools in the arsenal of a Squad commander and someone who once held a high opnion in the halls of power on Badab.  Akkad is patient and understanding with individuals, but can be uncompromising with groups or those he deems unworthy or suspicious.  He is particularly careful around operatives of the Inquisition, knowing that politics, subterfuge and lies are part of their arsenals too.  Akkad prefers to trust his perception first, follow on with reason and then when action is required, execution with a will.

 

Akkad sees himself as one of the Emperor's Finest, standing shoulder-plate to shoulder-plate with his brothers against the darkness.  He is the lock that holds the gates of hell shut, a defender of the Imperium and upholder of the Dominance of Mankind.

 

Experience:

Akkad is all-rounder with a wealth of experience, not always good, of different cultures among Astartes of the Maelstrom Warders and the men of the Tyran's Legion.  He has some knowledge of Void Combat from his time with the Rogue Trader Melindra Orduul.  He has extensive experience of boarding operations, artillery control, detached duty and independent squad level operations with and without support.  He has operated with the Mantis Warriors on several occasions and has even learned some of their battle language.  This, plus his Rogue Trader experience and his time with the Tyrant's Legion has marked him, unknowingly with the capability of working with others not of his ilk.

Destruction of Tithe Fleet VX542/11 in 901.M41 (Censured - unofficial)

 

Deployed to the Deathwatch 109.904.M41

 

Notable Quirks:

Akkad likes to take samples of the battlefields he has fought on, by making capsules to store the soil etc in heavy bolter, cut-down shells.  He will later indulge in what he calls "sampling the bouquet" whereby he opens the capsules and uses his enhanced gene-senses to delve into memories of old battles, comrades, victories and defeats.  The largest sample he has is from his home-world of Badab Primaris, which contains the rich soils of the hanging gardens, the fields where he grew up, the scents of the cities and houses he has been in and the hallowed air of the mountains in which the Space Marines of the Astral Claws train.  Akkad is sentimental, which is a rarity in Space Marines and sometimes wistful.  His initial aloofness can be cooling and he has a tendency to mask genuine pleasure with cool indifference.

 

His armour is bellicose and prevents all attempts at stealth, growling at interlopers, challengers and making a nuisance of itself any time the idea of shirking from his heavy responsibilities as a Maelstrom Warder surfaces.  To soothe this Leonine beast, he gently taps the forehead of the helm, which subdues the fierce war-spirit within, knowing that he listens to it.

 

Akkad speaks some Oothican, which is the home language of the Mantis Warriors and has also trained in some of their esoteric martial arts.  Whilst not flowing or graceful, such as say the Blood Angels own techniques, it makes up for this by being brutal, thorough and shockingly effective, much like the Astral Claws themselves.

Brother 'Greysight'

Chapter of Origin: Storm Sons
Role upon Induction: Bondsman, Ordu of the Golden Moon
Deathwatch Specialism: Tactical
Character Sheet: LINK

vSbiiCU.jpg
Greysight, Kill-Team Blackthorn



Appearance:
Smaller in stature than his brothers, Greysight’s skin is naturally a deep brown with jet black hair, with a physiognomy that resemble the ancient peoples of the Indus valley of Old Earth, with eyes the colour of honey. In keeping with his chapter traditions, Greysight has faint, jagged scars that running on either cheek, the mark of a true son of Jaghatai Khan. Barring his dueling knife, Greysight’s only possession is a knot of hair woven into a bronze tube like a top knot, affixed to his battered armour.

Eschewing the latest advances in power-armour, Greysight's armour has been restored and rendered in the colours of the Deathwatch. It has an aura of brutality, dotted with monomolecular bonding studs that spoke of the power armour's long history. On its chest, proudly gleaming silver is the aquila, emblazoned with the lightning strike sigil of the Great Khan. His right pauldron is electroplated in bronze, the lightning corona chapter symbol of the Storm Sons etched into it. The left arm is now a polished silver, accompanied by a new pauldron, also of polished silver, bands of acid-etched gothic lettering surrounding the skull device of the Deathwatch.

Personality:
A man of few words, Greysight is a superstitious, quiet soul, lacking the more bombastic personalities of others in Kill-Team Blackthorn. Possessing a natural affinity for scouting as a product of his parent chapter’s culture, he stands apart from the others. He is by no means dour or asocial, Greysight merely content observing until tactical necessity demands it. In battle, Greysight fights with grim determination in keeping with his quiet, stoic nature.

Brother Vârvost 

UUdaBKwm.jpg
Brother Vârvost

Chapter of Origin: Eradicators

Role upon Induction: Assault Squad Sergeant, 2nd Company

Deathwatch Specialism: Assault

Character Sheet: LINK

 

Appearance: 

Vârvost moves with a suppleness that seems possessed of a monstrous, almost feline lethality which is only underscored by the beastlike snarling of his armour. The suit he wears is an amalgam of pieces of myriad different marks. How fitting, then that he bears a similarly patchwork face, seemingly held together by a labyrinth of livid scar tissue; rents and runnels that carve through his flesh like trenches on a battlefield. To the rear of his skull you see a metal plate, dented and scuffed, that seems to indicate that the Apothecary that tended to him was hasty - or careless.  At his belt, the Marine wears a chain-weapon - but not a sword, as you might expect. He carries a crude chainaxe that seems to reflect every aspect of his character. 

 
Beneath the mask of scar tissue his eyes are surprisingly blue and reflect the heritage of his gene-father, Sanguinius. He appears to be everything that his Primarch is not, however - hideous rather than fair, cruel rather than noble.
 
His shoulder pauldron bears a leering bleached skull surmounting a pair of longbones. Beneath it is a scroll emblazoned with a runic script bearing his names.
 
Personality: 

 

Others of the Deathwatch might fancy themselves as knights, defenders of creeds and upholders of the Imperium. Some in the galaxy might revere the Angels of Death. But Vârvost is no paragon, no warrior or champion. He is a killer, and every edge of him radiates murderousness.

Thorvald

Chapter of Origin: Space Wolves

Appearance:
Brother Thorvald wears Maximus armour, an ancient suit of armour edged in gold and draped in animal skins. He stands shorter than perhaps nearly all other marines, but squat, barrel-chested. His flame-red hair seems to form a mane and his lips part to form an earnest grin that reveals pointed canines.

Personality:
X

History:
Thorvald speaks little of his history among the warriors of Fenris. It is said on the Watch-Station that he was a Wolf Lord, the equivalent of a Company Captain, before some misfortune befell him and he journeyed to the Deathwatch.

Brother Codicier Guillermo Montesa

fLW9Ffy.png
Guillermo Pict Capture - 04175-D001




Chapter of Origin: Crimson Fists (Successors of VII Legion, Second Founding)

Role upon Induction: Codicier of the Hallowed Sepulcher
Deathwatch Specialism: Librarian of the Watch Tower
Character Sheet: LINK

Appearance:
Astartes Subject 04175-D, registered under the full name Guillermo Alvado Navara of the Distinguished Naval House Montesa, forty-ninth of that name. The subject Guillermo is of smaller physical stock than most Astartes. Even with trans-human implantation at their full maturity, the subject exhibits an apparent lacking in size and stature against his brother Astartes. The subject stands at approximately 198 centimeters in height and approximately 293.928 kilograms in weight. This noticeable lacking frame compared to his brother Astartes is likely due the subject's origins as one of 'voidborn' stock. While likely a healthy and adequate candidate for the Astartes program, the muscular degradation common among voidborn candidates set them at odds with the more common stock of feral worlds and hive cities. Census records willingly provided by Chapter's Apothecarion indicate the Chapter has a small but reliable pool of voidborn candidates with each neophyte tithe. The overwhelming majority of these voidborn candidates are pooled from families that hold high reputation with the Chapter, serving in their navy with some families dating in service back to forefathers in service amidst the Crimson Fists' origins as a Crusading Chapter. As his full name would suggest, subject Guillermo is of one such honored families in service to the Chapter. Census records indicate that the Naval House Montesa has offered no less than 423 of its sons to the Chapter, dating back as far back to their initial vow of service in the 33rd Millenium. How many of these sons actually went on to become Astartes, however, was not provided in the records.

Despite a smaller frame as a result of his origins, subject 04175-D displays a healthy skin-tone, likely either due to special uv lighting afforded for the upper echelons of naval crew, or developed in his coming years as an Astartes aspirant. The subject's black hair is shorn short along the sides, leaving only wiry hair along the top of his scalp with several long strands along the back of his neck braided, likely as part of some unrecorded tradition amidst his origin stock. The subject's eyes are watery blue, the iris displaying microscopic cracking like cobwebs amidst the blue coloration. The source of this is unknown, whether it is a genetic deformity, or a result of the subject's psychic capabilities. The subject's physical frame is healthy and eligible for service with few distinctions of note save for a grim stylized artistry tattooed upon his back with the high gothic 'Quod Sumus Hoc Eritis' and what appears to be a list of names following. The reason for these listed names, the Codicier has refused to provide an answer.

Addendum - Subject 04175-D's physical record has been reevaluated following previous mission completion. The subject is now host to extensive bionic reconstruction. Following the previous failed mission of Killteam Swordhand, Codicier Guillermo was delivered from the thunderhawk with his chest cavity and throat torn open. Accounts from his fellow killteam members and bio-examination has concluded that the subject took a severe blast to the chest, leaving him incapacitated with several major organs severly damaged. The wound begins just above where the subject's adams apple once was, down jus below his ribcage. While several of his organs were saved and have healed, subject 04175-D's entire respiratory system has been replaced, along with his primary heart, with bionic replacements and implanted beneath the reconstructed bone-plating. While the intricate bionics have mimicked his damaged vocal cords almost perfectly, the subject's new voice still bears a noticeably artificiality.

Following psychoanalysis, subject 04175-D was cleared for active service for the Long Watch. As with the Astartes, there are several commonalities that seem to blanket over almost every member of the 1,000 Chapters. Subject 04175-D is no different, showing a sense of focus and purpose, unwavering commitment to his duty and honour. The subject displays a considerable respect for the Deathwatch and has claimed to see it as a great honour. However, chemical examination throughout the analysis would assert that this is, at least in some small part, a lie. Subject Guillermo appears, at first, like most of his brotherhood chapter, the taciturn stoicism of Dorn's gene-line, polite and seemingly calmer than most of his geneseed. However, psychoanalysis has diagnosed that the subject suffers from melancholia, a deep sadness that weighs on the subject. When questioned, the subject has remained relatively unresponsive, avoiding the answer or providing one of little substance. It is known that the Codicier was responsible for overseeing the Holy Sepulcher before his induction into the Long Watch, a title used by his chapter to denote the storage of ancient Dreadnought sarcophagi. The Naval House of Montesa is well known within the Chapter for its service as fleet officers, but more importantly for their lineage, as several heroes of the chapter are noted as originating from the Naval dynasty. It has been confirmed that one such ancient hero and ancestor to Guillermo, former Master of the Gates Santiago Montessa. Hypothesis would suggest there is some connection between the entombed ancient and Guillermo's mental state, but it presently remains inconclusive.

Brother Rodrik Ghent

med_gallery_45765_10052_319005.png
Rodrik Ghent (artwork by Diego Gisbert Llorens)

Chapter of Origin: Invaders
Role upon Induction: Tactical Marine, 2nd Tactical Squad, 7th Company
Deathwatch Specialism: Tactical
Character Sheet: https://docs.google....t#gid=370300549

Appearance:
Ghent is relatively tall (2.17m) with a shock of short-cropped grey hair and amber eyes. His rough pale skin is marked with many scars, a testament to his long service to his Chapter and the Emperor. Grievously wounded during the Devastation of Ogrys, his right arm and leg have both been replaced with cybernetic limbs. A large black aquila tattoo spreads itself across his shoulder blades, Ghent’s way of marking half a century of loyal duty to Ogrys and Terra.

Personality:

Rodrik Ghent, like many sons of Dorn, is driven, focussed, and stubborn. He is one for quick, decisive action and rarely spends much time strategising even in the face of unfavourable odds.

His ascension from savage child living on the arid plains of Ogrys to a biologically- and chemically-engineered instrument of war has made it clear in Ghent’s mind that Astartes are a creation superior in every way to the other species that inhabit the galaxy, including the humans they were molded from and are sworn to protect.

As veteran Tactical Marine and survivor of many battles against alien threats, his selection for service amongst the Deathwatch was done almost without pause for thought. In addition to this, a successful tour in the Deathwatch would see Ghent become a prime candidate for promotion to the First Company, something Rodrik believes he is overdue.

 

History:
835.M41 - accepted into the Chapter as a Neophyte at age 12 (Terran standard);
841.M41 - promoted to 9th Squad (Devastator), 3rd Company;
846.M41 - promoted to 7th Assault, 8th Company;
852.M41 - assault on Craftworld Idharae, survivor;
853.M41 - promoted to 2nd Tactical, 7th Company;
895.M41 - Alaitoc’s retaliation and devastation of Ogrys, survivor (wounded);
913.M41 - leaves Chapter to join the Deathwatch, prior to the Chapter’s near-destruction at the hands of daemonic hordes;
918.M41 - joins Kill-Team Swordhand of Watch-Station Azurea (at 83 years of service).

Weapons and Equipment:
Mk. Vb Godwyn boltgun “Fulmen Mors”, Ryza-Ultima bolt pistol, Mk. Xc chainsword “Kazna”, combat knife, frag & krak grenades, Mk VI Corvus power armour, ossific relic (Eldar wraithbone shard).

Brother Brakan Vorr

 

Chapter of Origin: Red Talons

Deathwatch Specialism: Devastator
Character Sheet: https://drive.google...dtVa9h_mc8o_87s

 

Appearance:

 

Personality:

 

History: 

Vorr does not share much of his history before joining the Deathwatch. It is known he was a Devastator marine in the Red Talons Second Company and that he was the sole survivor of his squad when they were attacked by an Iron Warriors armoured column. The Second Company bore the brunt of the attack but managed to stall the Iron Warriors long enough for reinforcements to arrive and drive them back - days later the Iron Warriors were driven from the planet and destroyed in orbit. Vorrs commanding officer noted he had a tally of 9 confirmed vehicle kills by the time he had been relieved. Vorr had been approached to join the First Company but he declined and asked for Deathwatch Secondment instead.

Brother Oto Yeng
 
Chapter of Origin: Gatebreakers
 
Role upon Induction: Gentle, 8th Assault Claw
 
Deathwatch Specialism: Apothecary
 
Character Sheet: LINK
 
h.jpg
 
Appearance: 
Oto Yeng's weatherworn face and habitual half squint, half-scowl goes some way to hiding the fact that his left eye has been replaced with a pearly bionoptic. The pair of eyecatching and ornate piercings in the helix of his right ear further draw attention away from it. Like his short, scrubby hair, his remaining natural eye is dark. 
 
Yeng tends to give a certain impression of being unruffled and reserved; his movements and expressions considered. Nevertheless, his posture is informal, with the bearing of an habitual void-sailor; ever-ready for the pitching or twitches of microgravity. Unexceptional in height or build for a member of the Astartes, Yeng wears a battered and much-repaired suit of armour. Hooped and reinforced, the recent black repaint does little to disguise the obvious signs of reconditioning and replacement. Its heavy foreplates draw Yeng's shoulders forward into an insouciant slouch. This impression is heightened by the heavy narthecium backpack; its rugged design incorporating gravity-fed metasaline drips, manual photondirector and similar tools of the medical trade. Obvious to any Astartes are a number of active crystal cryoflasks; an obvious sign of stored geneseed.
 
Over his Iron plate, he wears an honorific green-and-yellow mantle, sashed about the waist by a belt made of heavy beads. The quartered sun yellow and grass green of the Gatebreakers also remains on Yeng's right pauldron and – unusually – his right forearm. In these places the deformation and age of the armour is most apparent. Layers upon layers of ceramite-gel and armour cement are obvious, thinly veiled by repeated layers of paint. Closer inspection of his forearm reveals a series of tightly-formed inscriptions; some scored through, others overlaid – though attempting too close an inspection will doubtless see Yeng meaningfully reach for his stripped-down chainsword Begtse.
 
The other forearm bears his Deathwatch-issued reductor. In contrast with the rest of his armour, this is gleaming and new.
 
 
Personality: 
Yeng's Chapter, the Gatebreakers, patrol an isolated part of the Imperium – and one that Yeng is quickly discovering is markedly different to more Terran-influenced Imperial systems. As a result, Yeng sometimes appears reserved, even impersonal. In truth, he is fairly affable. He is simply content in his role as humanity's defender, and feels there is little to be gained from arguments or contests of 'correctness' in terms of warfare or culture. Survival and triumph are the goals of the Gatebreakers; and fatalism and adaptability are Yeng's preferred approach.
 
Evasive rather than hostile to outsiders, the Gatebreakers prefer to rely on their own initiative than ask for advice, and are 'pragmatic' in their recruitment and re-equipment methods – more than happy to prey on shipping and human worlds (both Imperial and the many independent worlds around their region of space), or work through extortion, blackmail or violence to achieve their ends. All this leads to a less than sentimental view of the Imperium; which is not to say their loyalty is in question, merely that it is based on oaths, religious faith and Chapter tradition, rather than political or social idealism.
 
Yeng takes duty particularly seriously; regarding personal discipline as the greatest virtue attainable. For this reason, he has taken to studying the Codex Astartes; a copy of which he was presented with on induction into the Deathwatch. The form of the Codex likely familiar to most of the team is unknown to the Gatebreakers; and Yeng has a habit of using the Gatebreaker's aphoristic – a puritan might suggest debased – version of the tome; which is known to the Chapter as 'Tenets of Warfare from the Ten Divine Princes'. 
 

Aware of his dual role as Apothecary (or 'Gentle', to use the Gatrebreaker's honorific) and Chapter ambassador to the wider Imperium, Yeng makes the effort to act as a balancing or connecting role within the team; even where this grates with his personal sensibilities. 
 
 
History: 

– Age 4 standard: Enslavement raid – captured by Mass Caravan from his homeworld of Yeng.

– Age 8: Under the cover of a Jin Mhorr raid on the Mass Caravan, Oto orchestrates his escape alongside two older slaves. Six months later, the three are picked up, near death, by a Gatebreaker picket. 

– Age 9: Inducted into the Chapter, Oto is the only one who survives.

– Age 14: First deployment as Scout; recruitment raid.

– Age 15: First confirmed xeno-kill (hain); as part of void assault party.

– Age 17: Induction into Chapter proper.

– Age 18–21: Deployment on picket patrols sees the young Oto serve as void-marine against numerous foes.

– Age 21: Halator Void War. 

– Age 23: War on Malice against the Krell – Yeng is vented into space, badly injured. His squad suffers near total casualties after the detonation of their ship. It is four weeks before he is recovered; a period of isolation that has a profound effect on his psyche and physical health. 

– Age 25: Returned to active duty following penitence for failure. During this two-year censure period, he requests transfer to Apothecarion and begins his training.

– Age 27: Confirmation as Gentle Ordinate.

– Age 38: First Battle of Trome. Yeng is cited for courage under fire during running battles with the Trome.

– Age 56: Invasion of Solace: Yeng deploy alongside thirty other Gatebreakers to pacify the genewrights of Solace. The defenders suffer near-total casualties. Seven Gatebreakers are killed.

– Age 58: Halator activity increases; the Gatebreakers deploy in Reinforced Company strength for the first time in seven centuries. The resulting void battle is occluded by the reappearance of the Krell.

– Age 58–78: The Halator–Krell war continues; the Gatebreakers lose a substantial proportion of their strength and are forced to disengage. Half a dozen Imperial worlds are lost to the Halator and Krell expansion. 

– Age 80: Punitive hit-and-run attacks prevent xeno-settlement on lost worlds. Yeng, alongside the Famed Fourteen, leads a successful counter-revolution on the world of Ares.

– Age 84: Oversees recruitment drive. Seven thousand potential recruits are fast-tracked, resulting in thirteen viable acolytes.

– Age 87: Promoted to Claviger – a delegate to the broader Imperium – and despatched to serve on the Deathwatch.

Brother Morthas Teralil

 

Chapter: Obsidian Glaives

 

Role upon Induction: Techmarine, Obsidian Glaives Armoury

 

Deathwatch Specialism: Techmarine

 

Character Sheet: https://docs.google....a#gid=370300549

 

Appearance:

 

Although he does not possess any obtrusive cybernetic replacements, Teralil is still far from baseline Astartes, with an inbuilt MIU allowing him swift communion with the machine spirits.

 

He wears a battered and worn suit of Mark V Power Armour from the Chapter's founding, a dark reminder of what the Chapter has endured over ten millennia of warfare. His servo-arm reaches over his left shoulder, its standard pattern belying his experience.

 

His armour is broadly bereft of adornment, though on his right gauntlet he bears a shining lightning bolt, marking him out as having once presided over the awakening of Lord Fulminos, the founder of the Chapter, forever encased in Dreadnought Armour.

 

On the rare occasions when he removes his scowling faceplate, a scarred visage can be seen, as ruined as the armour encasing it. If examined closely, patterns resembling those inflicted by auto-flagella worm their way amidst the rest of the damage.
