Alright, here we go! One Hellgun toting Grenadier coming up!Appearance: Name:
Standing at a good six feet and four inches, Dieter is a powerfully build man with broad shoulders and deep chest, from his early years working in a mine and most of his adult life wearing ceramite body armor, while carrying heavy equipment. Once brown hair has turned prematurely dark gray, making him look older then he should and is kept trimmed short, near to his scalp.
As he is fresh from his unit, he has no civilian clothing, just a few sets of his battle dress (light blue jacket and pants, combat boots) and his dress uniform (black boots, red trousers, light blue jacket with red pipping and red braid epaulettes and a black kepi.) Role:
Trained as part of an elite company in the Imperial Guard, Dieter is highly aggressive in combat, always striving to advance against the enemy and to be the first into the breach. When defneding, he holds with such a stubbornness, that one might think he doesn't understand the word withdraw. He could repair or even rebuild his hellgun blindfolded, trained this way by representatives of the Departmento Munitorum, given his use of a rare weapon and how few forgeworlds could build a replacement if he broke it. He has a very good throwing arm, able to land grenades within inches of his target.Background:
Born on Rhanda, Dieter was the son of the miner and would have lived his life tunneling through the earth if the Governor hadn't received a demand from the Departmento Munitorum to raise several regiments. Drafted into these new raisings at seventeen, his height and size marked him out from the rest of the conscripts and luckily got him into the grenadier company of the Fifth Rhanda Infantry. As the new regiments were leaving their homeworld, he was being trained as part of his regiment's heavy assault company.
Their first action would take place upon Mariam. Rebel forces had seized much of the planet but had been driven back by elements of the Imperial Guard. However the war had ground down to a halt, with Imperial forces besieging rebels inside massive fortress. The Rhandain regiments were deployed against Burrhold, a fortress controlling a major seaport. Local PDF forces had been able to breach the walls, every assault they had made against the rebels had been repulsed. With a fresh, day long, bombardment of Burrhold, the Rhandains attack, with their grenadiers leading the way. Dieter and his company smashed into the rebel defenders and broke those standing before them, opening the way for the lesser companies and the PDF to storm into the fortress.
However, rather then chasing after routing rebels, the grenadiers punched deep into the fortress, right to it's heart. Dieter was among the squad the smashed into the command hub and killed the rebel commander. No one was able to tell just who blew the man's head off but all of them looted the body, taking heavily decorated weapons or one of the many decorations on the corpse's breast, as souvenirs.
The years would see the Rhandains transported from warzone to warzone, used as heavy, frontal assault troops. Slowly the regiments were whittled away, until only their grenadier companies and a handful of line companies were lift, which were collapsed into the Rhandain Grenadier Regiment. A few years ago, while being transported across the warp, the ship they were aboard came across A Idolator Raider. When it was crippled, Naval Armsmen and other Guard units attempted a boarding, hoping to seize from of the Raider's advanced targeting systems. The Rhandain Grenadiers however, were held in reserve, as their grenade launchers and hellguns were too destructive to use in such an operation. However, the Raider was packed with traitor guardsmen, who counter attacked Imperial forces and managed to push them back.
Thrown in to hopefully defeat the traitor scum, Sergeant Dieter and his squad stumbled across a pocket of Imperial resistance. A band of Armsmen, under the command of a Naval officer, a one Matthias Kohler. They had been holding their own against the rogue guardsmen but were running low on ammunition. A fusillade of las fire later, left only the Imperials standing, with dead traitors covering the deck and smoldering holes in the bulkhead, which luckily weren't near the hull. Combining into a rough platoon, Naval and Guard were able to punch through to the Raider's bridge, as other units scoured the ship of traitors. Regimental Lore states that Sergeant Dieter gave everyman of the combined platoon, including the Naval officer, one of his stash of Lho-sticks, to smoke in victory, lighting them on the smoldering coat of the Raider's Captain.
When news of Alexander Kohler's disappearance came through, the Rhandain Grenadiers happened to be in transit again, on a ship with Matthias Kohler aboard.Arms and Equipment:
