"after what they've been through on the Spinward Front command is just happy they aren't tearing the place apart" - unnamed Prometheron 653rd sergeant on the regiments conduct during shore leave


Levi Slone


Gender: male
Age: 29 (born 4 711 972 M41)
Height: 5' 11"
Weight: 172 lbs
Notes: blank expression, facial scarring, unsettling gaze, blunt in speech
Regiment: Prometheron 653rd "Bridge Burners" Mounted Combat Engineers
Born: Grimgerde, Habitation district 7X "Arianrhod", Prometheron.
Training: Gaileo prefecture citadel "Caer Barbatos": - cavalry lancer, scout/stealth, ordinance certifications.
Appearance: mostly-shaved head, deathly pale, dark shadows around eyes, slightly gaunt features, conditioned but wiry build, mixture of engine grease and dirt/mud smeared over forehead, house slone sigil branded onto right shoulder
Summary: Corporal of the 8th cavalry squad in the bridge burners, Slones main notable achievement was being part of the infamous "bridge burners charge" at the battle of Vecta Secondus* 4 years prior to the 653rd's redeployment to Naris to provide scouting and intelligence gathering support, like most in reconnaissance roles slone is cunning, patient and resourceful if a somewhat blunt and unhinged maverick, rumours are he actually volunteered to be issued a plasma gun, and also is enamored with Corporal Sofia Kosomov but has yet to actually approach the Valhallan (and no one is particularly game to broach the subject or confirm the accuracy of said rumours).

also much like those in his regiment he has a tendency to 'tinker' with engines and machines, which tends to draw the ire of the techpriests.

following a creative and unusual punishment sentence put upon him by Commissar Holt, Levi is now known by some of the death korp contingent (and perhaps the entire guard contingent stationed on naris) as "The bringer of cupcakes. He of the frosted treats."

* the "bridge burners charge" was an unexpected** - both by the high command and the enemy - cavalry charge by the 653rd against Tau fortified position, originally the battle plan called for the 653rd to demount and begin scouting and sapping operations against the enemy (artillery support would not be available as the target - a former imperial spaceport - was crucial for logistics) but for reasons unknown the unit decided to charge headlong into battle on their mounts instead, the audacity and spontaneity of this caught the enemy defenders completely off guard despite them being gun ready and to attention, as a result the 653rd were able to breach their defence line and capture the spaceport with 15 out of the 18 landing pads intact and only suffering minimal casualties

** some circles debate whether this truly was an unexpected turn of events as even before then the entire 653rd had become renowned for their tenacity and infamous for their enthusiasm when it comes to carrying out their duties, some intelligence reports seem to confirm this as prior to them pulling all forces out of Vecta secondus in order to negotiate a ceasefire, an enemy communique was intercepted stating "these gue'la stripped themselves half naked, climbed on top of massive beasts and charged at a fortified hunter cadre position waving shovels and barge poles with explosives tied to the end, we are not going to provoke the crazy people just to preserve one commander's pride" this sentiment echo's reports from enemy prisoners who, by the time high command arrived were freely offering whatever intelligence they had so long as we "kept those pale skinned maniacs away from them" Inquisitor Orgus noted that it was the quickest and easiest mass interrogation he had ever been a part of

Equipment: dust goggles, fatigues, flak armour, hunting lance + assorted replacement lance tips, laspistol, enthrenching tool/shovel, plasma gun, imperial infantryman's uplifting primer, cameoline cloak, Magnoculars, grenades, melta bombs, demo charges, extended operations survival pack, rebreather pack, micro bead, knife, house slone neck scarf, chrono, water canteen, rechargeable lamp pack, assorted tools, Ident-tags

High Concept: wasteland warrior
Trouble: doesn't play well with others
Aspect: what a lovely day!
Character Aspect:"that smile ain't disappearing on my watch" (Tabitha) - Feeling rather protective towards Tabitha, Levi has taken it upon himself to be something a self appointed mentor figure to the Cadian, aiming to keep his friend safe and teach her how to survive without losing her sanity.

Shas'nel T'au la'ren Kais Se'hen che lel Kir'qath

Appearance: slightly hunched stature, weary expression, skin covered with navy splotches, greying braided scalp lock, battlesuit interface connector implant on back of skull
Summary: Se'hen Kir'qath was once a skilled battlesuit pilot, noted both for his cautious planning and the speed in which he conducted his attacks, however the years of battle have taken their toll on the Shas'ui and he was forced to give up battlesuit duties after developing advanced chronic Battlesuit Neurosis, still wanting to serve the greater good he was offered the opportunity to continue via promotion to cadre fireblade

while he is grateful for this offer deep down he feels as though he has been 'put out to pasture' and yearns to pilot a battlesuit again one last time (as doing so would probably kill him), secretly he also habours sympathies to the farsight enclaves

High Concept: old warhorse
Trouble: past his prime
Aspect: down, but not out

'Nel' doesn't exist as a rank.

'La, 'Ui, 'Vre, 'El, and 'O are the established ones, translated in order;
Warrior, Veteran, Hero, Noble/Knight, Commander.
That's all I got to say, really.

EDIT: Noticed that it's the direct translation of the title, which caught me off guard - Not sure if it's supposed to be at the front anyhow, but I had assumed it was mistype of 'El', as Fireblades are usually such rank.

shas'nel or cadre fireblade as it is alternatively known is below shas'el in terms of rank and prestige, probably equivalent to somewhere between shas'ui and shas'vre

"Everything organic we know of is simply machinery, in one form or another. Tendons replace pistons; flesh in the place of steel; blood is simply biological coolant. To deny this and shun it is more than just Mechanicus orthodoxy – it is idiocy."
- Attributed to an unknown Genetor

Metasurgeon Jane Cheslock

Gender: female
Age: 306 (born 7 538 690 M41)
Height: 6' 4" (10' 8" limbs fully extended)

Regiment: N/A
Born: Lathe-Hesh, lathe worlds, Calixis Sector
Training: Cult Mechanicus teachings of Cybernetica, Divisionis Biologis teachings of Genetus, Biologis, and Xenos Biologis.
Appearance: dressed in standard mechanicus robes so form is mostly concealed with hints to an alluring shapely figure, face similarly concealed behind specialised helm with rebreather but is rumoured to be attractive, wears carapace armour when out in the field
Summary: An apexist genetor from the Lathes, the quest for knowledge and the need for her expertise brought metasurgeon cheslock to naris, where she has taken to her duties - tending to the various rough rider mounts, lending her skills to the medicae tent, and studying and dissecting any xenos corpses/samples brought her way to find an exploitable weakness - with great enthusiasm, although she tends to get along better with the rank and file than she does with her peers in the mechanicus owing to her position and philosophies as a genetor. relishes any chance to get out in the field and will generally be more than happy to comply with most requests, provided that in turn those asking will try to bring her a sample of xenos material (typically a hand or foot will suffice) for her work.

is something of a tea and recaff aficionado, and can sometimes be found experimenting with different brews

Equipment: fletchett blaster, omnisian axe, infoslave skull, grapplehawk, carapace armour, fullface helm with auto-senses and rebreather, lascarbine

mechadendrites:

Ooooooh, Jane would get along with Havelock just fine. His Raptgar mounts are all he is comfortable talking about.

Claudia Halvus

Gender: female
Age: 35 (born 2 001 967 M41)
Height: 5' 3"
Weight: 166 lbs
Notes: unsettling smile, 'eyes like a snake' (metaphorically not literally)
Regiment: Prometheron 653rd "Bridge Burners" Mounted Combat Engineers
Born: Brunhild, Habitation District 6N "Vanir", Prometheron
Training: Alto prefecture citadel "Caer Halphas": - ordnance, and scout/stealth certification
-----------Prometheron Officer Training Schola "Freja": - officer commission
Appearance: deathly pale, dark shadows around eyes, slightly gaunt features, conditioned build, shoulder length jet black hair, slender facial features, green eyes, house halvus sigil branded onto right clavicle
Summary: Lieutenant of the 653rd's 2nd infantry platoon (formerly part of the 371st stealth infantry, prior to it and other remnants of Prometheron regiments - the 118th sentinel company, the 98th mechanised, and the 66th cavalry - being merged together to form the combined regiment known as the 653rd) she is one of the most feared officers in the regiment by those outside of it (particularly its enemies). this infamy is not for disciplinary reasons - in contrast to other officers and subordinates like Sgt Beckett, Halvus is known to be very disconcertingly calm and easygoing - but rather for her ruthlessness on the battlefield, other rumours suggest that she somewhat of a sadist. the Lieutenant is also rather disliked by high command units due to her tendency to play loose with accepted strategy, orders and combat doctrine, but they tolerate her regardless as she gets results and is liked by her troops.

During the deployment of the 653rd units sent to assist the forces on naris following the garrison's loss of high command and Lord Commissar Abraham’s command platoon, some of its transports (including the one carrying Lt Halvus) were shot down by tau air caste forces, currently she among others are listed as MIA presumed dead, although there are rumours about persistent and brutal guerrilla attacks being waged on the enemy in the area near her transports last recorded location before contact was lost.

Equipment: fatigues-junior officer variant, flak armour, laspistol, power fist, boltgun (; 2x sickle magazines, 1x drum magazine, 1x straight magazine, rarely used in order to conserve ammunition supplies), imperial infantryman's uplifting primer, cameoline cloak, grenades, melta bombs, extended operations survival pack, magnoculars, rebreather pack, micro bead, knife, house halvus neck scarf, chrono, water canteen, rechargeable lamp pack, assorted tools, Ident-tags,

High Concept: cold-blooded pragmatist.
Trouble: "mmm~...scream for me"
Aspect: listen, smile, nod, then do what you were going to do anyway.
Approaches:
- Careful +2
- Clever +2
- Flashy +1
- Forceful +0
- Quick +3

Eugene Flemming

Gender: male
Age: 20 (born 9 637 981 M41)
Height: 5' 9"
Weight: 189 lbs
Notes: bloodshot eyes, possibly due to lack of sleep
Regiment: Narisian PDF
Born: Bauskala, Valmaria
Training: Basic PDF Training
Appearance: messy unkempt blonde hair, brown eyes, average build, lightly tanned
Summary: born into an agri-worker family of five, Eugene enlisted in the PDF on a promise to his parents to look after his younger brother Gilliam who had also enlisted, from there he found himself assigned to the mess hall/kitchen branch due to having a higher than average aptitude for cooking

when the rebellion happened he tried to bring his brother along with him to escape back to their family in bauskala, but Gilliam - having been converted over by the xenos promises of the 'greater good' - refused outright, wishing to to take up arms with the rebels against the Imperium instead, in the ensuing argument that escalated into a full on fight Eugene ended up killing his brother by accident

unable to return home - feeling he wouldn't be able to look his parents in the eyes after what he had done - and with nowhere else to go, Eugene has stayed with the neutral PDF faction troops in the refugee camp, putting his cooking skills to work in order to make the meals just a little bit more palatable, but keeps his distance from the rest of the troops as he is completely unsure how to interact with them

Equipment: lasgun (necromunda pattern), PDF uniform, knife, water canteen, chrono
High Concept: Barely holding it together
Trouble: Kinslayer
Aspect: I'm just a cook!
Approaches:
- Careful +0
- Clever +1
- Flashy +1
- Forceful +2
- Quick +3
- Sneaky +2

(just so people are aware i still keep in contact with hawke and she's given me permission to use her character guardsman samantha hawke)

Guardsman Samantha Hawke

Gender: Female
Age: 22 (born 2 844 979 M41)
Height: 5'4”
Weight: 129 lbs
Notes: Chain smoker, heavy drinker, amateur card shark. Untrustworthy. Incredibly untrustworthy. If Guardsman Hawke tells you Tau are blue, check it out.
Born: Kasr Rantik, Cadia
Training: Cadian upbringing, 3 years with the Cadian Youth Army

General Appearance: Guardsman Hawke has a medium height, slim build, and defined musculature: In other words, average Astra Militarum physique. Her hair is medium brown and curly and hangs down around her shoulders. Her eyes are Cadian Violet, her skin is lightly tanned, and her face is sharp with high cheekbones, a thin jawline and pointed chin, and straight bridge to her nose. She has minor scarring from nicks and cuts over most of her body, though nothing remarkable except for a long, straight, horizontal scar under her left eye. She has a tattoo of the Imperial Aquila across her shoulder blades. Former associates claim she has a few other tattoos in less visible areas, though official Munitorum documents show no record of these.

History: Guardsman Samantha Hawke was born on Cadia to parents both serving in the Cadian Interior Guard. When she was still a little girl, her father was killed in action defending against a push by the legions of the Traitor Marines two weeks before his twenty-seventh birthday. Sam learned that day just how brief the life of a guardsman really is. As she was growing up, learning to read and write and field strip a lasgun, she never held any illusions that her life would be any longer than her father’s.
At fourteen she joined the Cadian Youth Army, like every other Cadian teenager. She was unsuited to the strict, structured lifestyle of the Whiteshields and often found herself under disciplinary review. One of her drill sergeants noted “Cadet Hawke lacks for motivation, not courage or competence.” It was something of a struggle but after three years she proved herself worthy to join the regiments as a full Guardsman.
She was selected to serve off-world, and spent four years in several different theaters as half of a heavy weapons team until she along with the rest of her regiment were reassigned to Naris. When the Imperial Guard’s Finest made their parade through Naris city, she was far, far away with the rest of her only adequately-competent platoon. In the fighting that ensued, her regiment’s losses were so severe that after the initial conflicts she was rolled into Captain Perray’s 58th Cadian Mechanized 'Carnodons.'

General Information: Sam has no idea how she's survived this long. Honestly, she never expected to. Being born on Cadia meant the course of her life was predetermined. She would train as a soldier, join the Imperial Guard, and fight and die in the name of the Emperor. A long, happy, peaceful existence was out of the question. And so even before she joined the Whiteshields at age 14, she vowed to have as much fun as she could, while she still could.
She has dedicated herself to learning how to dodge officers, fine tuning her method of appearing to work even while slacking, and perfecting the arts of lying, cheating and stealing. The one lesson she never did learn was that life would be so much easier if she would only straighten up and act like a true guardsman. Emperor only knows how far she might have advanced if she put the same amount of effort into her duties as she put into avoiding them.
Sam has a fondness for unsavory characters and a love of vice. Smokes, booze, stims, gambling, sex, you name it. If it sounds like fun, she’s game for it. She has seen half of the enlisted men at their absolute worst, and the amount of people she could blackmail is only rivaled by the number who also have dirt on her. She owes favors (and smokes) to a great many people around the base, and possibly the city as well, and has quite a few favors of her own waiting to be called in.
Several years ago, Sam was field promoted straight to Sergeant as the senior-most surviving member of her squad. When her unit returned to base she partied so hard that the next morning she was promptly stripped of rank and command for “conduct unbecoming an officer.” To this day she has no idea what happened that night.


Possessions:
- Munitorum issue flak armor
- Munitorum issue fatigues, olive drab, 2 sets.
- Munitorum issue combat boots, black. 1 pair.
- Munitorum issue Las gun
- Grenades: 2 Frags, 2 Kraks
- Dog tags
- Catachan close combat blade (stolen from a former lover just before he and his platoon were wiped out)
- Cadia pattern Hellgun and power pack (won off a stormtrooper in a card game last week. Sure to be her most prized possession right up until it gets confiscated)
- Pack of cards (marked)
- Pack of lho sticks (always worth assuming she has a pack on her. . . or in the pockets of her other fatigues. You don’t mind if she bums one, right? You know she’s good for it.)

High Concept: Silver-tongued slacker -- Hawke is known for her flagrant disregard of the rules and her fast-talking prowess that allows her to often avoid the penalties.
Trouble: We're gonna die young. Might as well live fast. -- Hawke has no illusions about the average lifespan of a guardsman. Because she believes her life will be short, she often puts herself at risk or takes self-destructive actions. She hides her fatalism with hedonism.
Aspect: Lady Luck throws loaded dice. -- Instead of hard work or skill, Hawke relies on her seemingly endless luck to get by. On the rare occasions when her luck runs out, she cheats.
Aspect: Silk rope bonds of friendship (Levi Slone). -- Hawke's friendship with Levi Slone is as strong and binding as silk rope. Though they are frequently intimate, by mutual agreement their friendship is restrained from ever developing into anything more.
Approaches:
- Careful +0
- Clever +2
- Flashy +1
- Forceful +1
- Quick +2
- Sneaky +4

Updates:

Significant Milestone awarded for the Hall of Virtue operation
