Welcome to the 41st millennium.

Mankind's reach extends from galactic fringe to fringe and his armies are well armed, motivated and always moving. And yet his grasp is slipping, slowly, invisible to the teeming billions.

But you stand above them, you must confront the horrors of the galaxy and ensure mankind's continued domination, you will witness demonic incursion, alien aggression and the deepest pits of heresy. And if you fail, you will not be missed.

For those unfamiliar with Dark heresy it is a role playing game set in the grim future of the Warhammer 40000 universe where the Imperium of man teeters constantly on the edge of oblivion and is surrounded by enemies so terrible and yet the existence of them are seen as superstition by many, and unheard of by many more. The imperium's armies number billions and it boasts thousands of genetically enhandes super soldiers known as the Adeptus Astartes, The Space marines. The emperor sees all, the emperor knows all, the emperor protects from his golden throne there he has sat near lifeless for 10000 years.

For more information see the Wikipedia Article, the TV Tropes page or the Lexicanum

In this roleplay you are an aconite, an investigator in the service of an inquisitor. You go where he cannot and me his eyes, ears, and hands. You and your team will save worlds, or if necessary, advice your inquisitor to condemn them.

This game will be freeform so you don't need to worry about dice and numbers. Just have fun.

Current Goal/Purpose: To become a permanent attachment for an inquisitor.
Talents: Observationalist. He always takes in everything around him, always looking for a quick way out, or a support beam that when taken out, will kill several people trying to kill him.

Remy picked up most of his abilities simply surviving on the streets, picking up things here and there whenever he was in a tight situation. Remy's children were killed when he was young, during a home invasion, the robbers killed his parents while he hid in a small cubby in his room. After they were done, he hid his parents away and took up a life of his own.

He first became a gaurdsman, going through the regular training, he simply put his skills where they were best fitted, and took up a love with the sniper rifle.

Name: Sister Xae Calamity
Gender: Female
Species: Imperial Feral-Worlder
Age: 17
Birthplace/World: Iocanthos and Scintilla
Occupation: Adeptus Sororitas, Order of the Ebon Chalice
Theme Song


General Appearance: Rangy build, 1.9m and 63kg. Bronze skin, black hair, and almond-shaped orange eyes with catlike irises.
Strengths: Her faith in the Emperor is unwavering. An early childhood on Iocanthos made her tough and unafraid to get her hands bloody. What Xae wants, she usually gets, because she’s incredibly stubborn.
Weaknesses: Xae’s temper runs particularly hot, and it interferes with her judgment. People skills aren’t her forte, unless you count intimidation and abuse.
More: Locals considered orange an unlucky color on Iocanthos.
Equipment: Sororitas power armor, livery of the Ebon Chalice, Godwyn-De’az Pattern Bolter, Chaplet Ecclesiasticus.


Current Goal/Purpose: To murder the shit out of every heretic she can find.
Talents: She’s extremely handy with a blaster, adept in the extraction of information from unwilling mouths, and has a gut instinct for liars and heretics which doesn’t often fail her.
Inabilities: She simply cannot make connections with people on any kind of basic level. She has no empathy, and no understanding of tact or delicacy.
Fears: Her largest fear is of failure.
General Personality: Xae is a big bad bitch with a serious hate-on for heretics. Temperamental, arrogant, and overzealous, she has a tendency to rub people the wrong way.
Inner Personality: To Xae, the Emperor is the guiding hand that has brought her to where she is today, and she owes everything to Him. She’s never had anyone else to prove herself to or to make proud, so she devotes herself to the Emperor’s will.
Secret: She’s a sadist. Pleasure at fulfilling her calling isn’t the only reason she enjoys killing heretics; she revels in inflicting pain and death upon those she sees as unfit to live. It’s why Xae prefers violent, prolonged methods of killing; for her, it’s more about the torture.
More: Xae is not overly fond of Machine Cultists or of Psykers.


General History: Born in Port Suffering on Iocanthos, Xae was the child of two Administratum Arbites. Orphaned at a young age in a skirmish between warlords, she was adopted into the Schola Progenium and sent offworld to Scintilla, where she was raised in Hive Tarsus. Part of her Ecclesiarchal upbringing involved volunteer work at the Cathedral of Illumination. At eleven years old, Xae was performing her duties of cathedral cleaning when she overheard a Noble boy a few years her senior make a snide heretical comment; without thought, she leaped on him and impaled him with a candelabra in front of the crowd of worshippers. This nearly resulted in her execution, but despite the outrage of the boy’s family, Xae was instead shipped back to her homeworld of Iocanthos to begin training at the Abbey of the Dawn to channel her religious zeal as one of the Sororitas. Xae did not take well to abbey life, and at sixteen, the Emperor smiled upon her. An Inquisitor came to visit the Abbey, and seizing her chance, Xae challenged him to give her name as a candidate for working with the Ordo Hereticus, if only she could lay one blow on him.

She was successful.

Present Life: As a Battle Sister, Xae does not work so much for the Inquisition as with it. Her hatred is so particularly strong for those who blaspheme that she has been considered potential Celestian material.
Vengeful max payne-esqu arbites

Vengeful Silent assassin

Vengeful hair-trigger Sororitas

Half written into post.
Debateing if I should join as Kain, my Scum who is fanaticly loyal and dislikes Clerics since he sees plenty of them as corrupt.
I won't stop you, you can either be assumed to be at the table or be met in port suffering.

Character Name: Kain H. Leaondros
Gender: Male
Species: Human, Imperial worlder (proto-hiver)
Age: 23
Birthplace/World: Sinclme/Karja
Occupation: Scummer


General Appearance: Kain stands at five feet, eleven inches, and there is not a part of his frame that posesses any fat. His hair is black and his skin a pale white, the usual color of people trapped in the perpetual rain storms in Karnja. His eyes are an oddity as they are an icy blue, quite different from the usual colors on his planet.
Strengths: Kain is extremely flexable as well as quite quick and nimble, be it with his snub revolver, or his trusty knife.
Weaknesses: Kain is a habitual Lho stick smoker, though he considers the bag he carries them in to be his lucky charm.
Equipment: Kain currently has: his Lho stick bag/lucky charm, a lighter, a Snub revolver with acceptable ammo, his knife that he stole back in Karnja from a drunken Imperial Guardsman, a small symbol of the Emperor on a rosmary that is ALWAYS on his neck, and a double barreled shotgun, also with appropriate ammo.


Current Goal/Purpose: To make the Emperor proud, as well as get out of that hellhole alive.
Talents: He is quite the charmer and can easily work his way through the hearts of people. He is also fiercely loyal to the Emperor.
Inabilities: He is so fanaticly loyal to the Emperor that even if it means bad things for himself or others, he will stop at NOTHING to destroy the heritics.
Fears: Kain is rather jaded, seeing so many horrors in the proto-hives back on Karnja, that normal horrors do not phase him. Supernatural horrors are a different thing entirely.
General Personality: Kain seems to be a normal Imperial citizen, if a rather base and charming one. It is when something heretical passes his sight that he goes into the attack, either blasting it away or cutting it away, often carving a Wheel of Chaos with an X across it, a sign of warding against evil on his planet. He is not a good person though...
Secret: --


General History: Kain was born in the ruins of the city Sinclme on the planet Karnja, a former hive world that was severly damaged durring a civil war that erupted a century prior. He was taken into a church, taught, given lessons of the grace of the Emperor, learned to love the Emperor and then thrown out when he was eighteen, when he was set on becoming a cleric himself. Jaded, Kain was forced to criminal actions to survive. His skill with the knife and gun pointed him out to the arbies, and there he gained the attentions of the inquisitor.

Present Life:
He serves the Inquisiton, happy to remove those who reject the Emperor's light.
