Okay, well, here's what I've got for a character concept:
Doktor Crowley Ripper
Doktor Ripper was born on the forge world of Vindalex in the Gothic sector, where he excelled in his studies and attracted the attention of the Adeptus Mechanicus. He took quickly to the study of the holy arts of the Omnissiah, and attained priesthood at a relatively early age, cloistering himself to better study the divine mysteries. Unfortunately, the thrill of discovery proved too much for him, and he committed dire heresy by designing a new pattern of auspex equipment, which was both smaller and more powerful than the orthodox equipment. Much of his life after his heresy was scrubbed from his mind by the inquisition, but he does remember getting married to a beautiful woman, and waiting in a reclaimation facility to be turned into a servitor.
Ripper ended up as the personal servitor to a Magos, along with his wife, until the 12th black crusade came to their world. As the sky filled with fire and pain, an unholy champion's personal weapon fell from the sky and cut into Ripper's body, tearing apart the mechanisms which had crippled him, and somehow tearing into his very soul to set him free. Ripper drew the blade into his hand, and it called him master, demanding that he rise up and destroy the Magos who had held him prisoner, and the very Imperial system that had ruined him for the crime of innovation. He called the unholy weapon "Mein Fuhrer", and it became his most treasured and trusted companion. Realizing the power of of chaos was just as beautiful as any work of the Omnissiah Doktor Ripper had ever laid eyes upon, and he destroyed the Magos with glee, ruining the defensive measures of the planet and allowing Chaos to utterly dominate. After attaining his freedom, Ripper attempted to free his wife, as he had been freed, but found that her conversion was too extensive to reform without killing her.
Undeterred by the fact that only he had been freed, Doktor Ripper was swept up into the twelth black crusade, repairing the engines of Chaos and learning all he could of the forbidden weapons of the legion, even once catching sight of the flagship of Abaddon the Despoiler himself as he landed on the planet. Later in the campaign, much of the lower half of Ripper's body was ruined by a landmine, and he replaced it with a very strong cybernetic support armiture, which allowed him armor and a sort of mobility, even at the price of his more normal functions. The time Ripper spent immersed in his studies left him unprepared for the coming of the blackstone fortresses, and the vast naval battles which marked the latter half of the 12th black crusade, as Ripper thrust himself into the unfamiliar territory. Unexpectedly, his ship was utterly destroyed and consumed by the warp, pulling him directly into the mercy of the Gods. Unfortunately, Mein Fuhrer had other plans, and arranged for him to be deposited directly into the Screaming Abyss, so that he could be killed in as painful and horrible a way as possible... Appearance:
Doktor Ripper is highly uncertain of his age, though he appears to be over eighty years old, and not dealing with it well. His experimental auspex sensor sits on his face like a third eye, changing colors with his mood and the things he detects. Most of the time, Doktor Ripper travels in a grease colored armored cybernetic armature, a sort of wheelchair which supports his body and helps power his implants, including his mechadendrite, with which he often weilds Mein Fuhrer. Mein Fuhrer itself is a short sword made from a frictionless material, which can never seem to decide which color it wants to be, simply shifting about in impossible, hypnotic patterns. Doktor Ripper is usually accompanied by his companion Lucy Ripper, who he is fairly certain is his wife. She resembles a standard utility servitor, but manufactured from a striking blond woman. She isn't useful for very much, but Ripper has a deep conviction that she'll eventually be repaired into something at least resembling who she once was.Characteristics:
