Nicodemus "Mongrel"


You are a Astropath Transcendent which is a rare individual, indeed. You are a psyker whose powers and very essence has been touched by the light of the God-Emperor himself and who is able to form a lifeline of communication across the limitless gulfs of space, his soul armored against the gnawing taint of the warp beyond. Those chosen to become Astropaths undergo the ritual of Soul Binding, in which the body and soul are scoured clean of the taint of the warp by the searing purity of the Emperor’s beneficence. After months of fasting, prayer, and ritual preparation, the psykers are brought into the very depths of the Emperor’s Palace in processions of a hundred at a time, there to undergo a ritual that will kill them, drive them insane, or bind them for all eternity to the Emperor. So intense is the ritual that the supplicants sensory organs are almost totally overloaded—leaving them blinded by the experience—with many suffering further nerve damage, incurring loss of smell, touch, or hearing. An so have you been blessed.

You hail from an Imperial world, one of a million planets united by a belief in the immortal God-Emperor of Mankind. Raised as one of several million destined to be mere form filling clerks of the great administrative machine that is the Ministorum that sees to governing the vast expanse of human space. This fate would not be for you as you were found to have innate psyker powers and at a young age you found yourself forced aboard one of the Black Ships of the Adeptus Astra Telepathica. The journey to and from Holy Terra would not only change you physically but would instill in you a deep reverence for the Emperor-God. As a Astropath Transcendent you were assigned to serve aboard a ship under a Captain, a Captain that was involved in a long running blood feud. That blood feud would come to a head with you caught in between and forced to fight for your life and those of your fellow crew members and for the first time you used your powers to kill. Although you failed to protect you former Captain and many of the crew you found a new strength inside and set out to find a new place and in the Rogue Traders service you have found it, now you just hope that death will not fallow you to this new crews side.
