"zomg its one of the Emperor's Angels of Death!"
A native of the Raven Guard's home 'planet' Deliverance (actually a moon orbiting the planet Kiavahr), all Dardanos had to do as a boy was look up at the Ravenspire, the Chapter fortress, to know what he wanted to do with his life. Not for him the dirty toil in the mines under the moon's surface like his parents- who both had been maimed in accidents while working. It was a source of fierce pride for families to have their children accepted as candidates for testing with the Chapter, and when Dardanos was taken, it was no exception. He wasn't very exceptional when compared to the other Aspirants physically, but one by one they dropped out for various reasons- mostly they gave up, though some had psychological weakness, and many who were tested did not have the proper genetic make up to accept the Chapter's gene-seed. Dardanos persevered simply due to his unwillingness to give up, to not be broken- and a little bit of luck that he was compatible with the needs of the Chapter.
The years following the rigorous testing consist entirely of rigorous training, instruction, and devotion to the Emperor and Primarch, with occasional, very short, rest periods for healing of injuries or adjusting to implanted organs.
Dardanos has only graduated from Aspirant to Neophyte fairly recently, and while he has been in action with his Chapter, there wasn't an exceptional amount of combat. The Veteran Sergeant that Dardanos had been placed in the care and tutelage of was a master of stealth, and avoided contact with the enemy masterfully while gathering tactical information for the main strike force- as well as being a demon when required to come to grips with the enemy.
Standing out as one of the Neophytes with the most promise in his Sergeant's eyes, when the Inquisitor came knocking on the Raven Guard's door for an addition to his retinue, it was Dardanos who was selected, given a chance to serve the Imperium outside the confines of the Chapter's military organization.
Except these guys are painted as Dark Angels... Imagine the same build/gear, but colors are more black/white/grey
