Here's my bio sheet. Let me know if there are any issues with any of this. If not, I'll begin posting in the Imperial thread..
Name: Markus Eliksar (alias Markus Elizan)
Status: Inquisitor of the Ordo Hereticus
Looks: 6'6, 240 lbs of solid muscle. Markus wears his brown hair cropped short with a pointed goatee. He still bears the Praetorian 12th tattoo below his right eye, serving both as a remembrance of where he came from as well as allowing him to slip into anonymity. Markus clearly has a very commanding personality and presence, both due to his size for a standard Human as well as his quick intelligence and wit. A long flourishing cape adorns his shoulders over his dark blue artificer armor.
Wargear: Brand new suit of Artificer Armor with a refractor field and psychic hood, he was gifted this by his parents after attaining his full Inquisitor rank. Master crafted bolt pistol and an ornate power sword. Two gun-skulls, both equipped with bolters hover within two meters of him at all times.
Bio: Markus Eliksar was born on Terra. The son of Flavius Eliksar, current Provost Marshal, directly reporting to the Grand Provost Marshal of the Adeptus Arbites. The Grand Provost Marshal of the Adeptus Arbites is a High Lord on Terra, one of the nine offices represented. Flavius serving as Provosot Marshal is essentially second in the chain of command for the Adeptus Arbites. His father has served in the Adeptus Arbites for the past 214 years on Terra.
His mother, Tatiana Cordova Eliksar is an Inquisitor and assistant to the Inquisitorial Representative. The Inquisitorial Representative is the voice of the Inquisition on the High Lords of Terra. She has served the Inquisition and the Ordo Hereticus in particular for over 290 years.
As the son of two very high ranking individuals, he grew up on Terra, spending his first 17 years under the Scholarium Segmentum, receiving an unparalleled level of training and education anywhere in the galaxy. At the age of 7 days, he was blessed before the Golden Throne itself. Growing up, he learned the political intrigue and backroom plots and twists that accompanied it through his parents dealings. Training in personal combat by the best Terra could offer, even at a young age he was unbelievably formidable.
Rebelling during his teenage years, he fled from home at 17 and boarded a freighter destined to get as far away as possible. Eventually he ended up on the hive world of Praetoria where he spent the next two years falling deeper and deeper into troubles as well as becoming addicted to Obscura. He soon fell off the radar of society, running with various Praetorian gangs to further support his Obscura habits. His physical prowess, combat training and commanding presence began paying off as he enjoyed the gang hab life of wanton killing and brutality. Soon he was leading hundreds of bangers in hive wars and business deals.
At 19, he was caught up in a Founding on Praetoria and was conscripted to join the newly founded Praetorian 12th Imperial Guard Regiment. Giving a last name of Elizan during the Founding, he remained obscured in anonymity. He served the next eight years in the Praetorian 12th, fighting in countless planets throughout the system during that time. He was rapidly promoted to Corporal and then on to a Sergeant. Throughout this period, he never once contacted his parents back on Terra.
At 27, while on Sebastin VI, he encountered a chance meeting with an Inquisitor. His squad was assigned to assist the Inquisitor with anything he may need. The inquisitor realized after several weeks that Sergaent Markus Elizan of the Imperial Praetorian 12th was much more than he seemed. After several more weeks, when the campaign was drawing to a close, the Inquisitor requested the permanent reassignment of Sergaent Elizan to his personal retinue.
It was at this point, that Markus relented and told him who he really was.
Markus was immediately shipped to Terra, fearful that he was in custody and heading towards not only his parents but also his death squad. Upon his arrival, he learned that his parents had been desperately searching for him for the past 11 years and were overjoyed at his return. He spent several months back home on Terra before his mother talked him into joining her as an Interrogator. He served under her very controlling and excellent tutelage for the last 18 years. Assisting to root out heresy, mutation and scourges his role has expanded more and more until finally he was inducted as a full Inquisitor. His mother requested a special ceremony, where the Inquisitorial Representative himself presented Markus with his Rosetta.
Now, six months after receiving his full Inquisitor rank, Markus has been sent to report to Inquisitor Lord Andreas Whitefire on Miranda IV.
Fighting Style: Markus excels at combat fighting, hand-to-hand and weapons training. In addition, his knowledge of tactical situations allows him to often use his environment to his advantage.
Retinue: (All of these will be NPC characters I will utilize in postings)
Purity & Faith - A pair of twin female death cult assassins who have served Markus for the past eight years. (Unlike the death cult assassins Eisenhorn encountered, these two are fully capable of verbal communication) Both are dressed in full black form fitting armor. Purity wields a plasma pistol and a chain-sword while Faith wields a bolt pistol and a chain-sword.
