Slug son of Algae son of Moth son of Swamp Falcon the Strifeborn of Clan Roke is a Feral World Imperial Guardsman assigned to the Inquisition. Soldiering is his lot in life.
Slug was born into Clan Roke on Dusk. Dusk is a feral world where nightmare and reality are the same. Winged monsters, giant carnivorous slugs, venomous moths, swamp tigers, and countless other horrifying beasts do their best to extinguish human life on the planet. Occult, Psykers, and Daemons too are far more common than on other worlds.
His people believe that the true name of a being grants control over them. Thus, Slug is not his true name but a use name. Slug sharing his true name with another is the greatest show of trust he can muster.
Slug was born under the sign of Strife, marking him “Strifeborn.” “Strifeborn” are those on Dusk tithed on their 17th Birthday to the Imperium. His entire life was preparation to become a solider and die. His training mainly focused on guard/escort detail, honing his focus to be less on the enemy and more on his allies. It is a great honor on Dusk to be Strifeborn, as his service to the Empire grants his people protection and supplies to survive on their hellish world. His facial tattoos mark him so that in case another clan on Dusk raided his village they would let him live, as he was spoken for by the Emperor.
Tithed into the Imperial Guard
On the eve of his 17th Birthday his clan held his funeral. From then on he considered himself dead. The only question remaining is when would he die. He and other feral worlders were shipped around star systems while receiving drill training before finally being split up and assigned to units.
Slug's unit saw combat in a small relatively safe campaign. While it ended in success, the unit had an incident with daemons. These slaughtered all of his fear crippled comrades, but Slug survived after seeing far worse on even a good day back on Dusk.
This caught the attention of the Inquisition and led to his current assignment.
Slug prepared to be a conscripted feral soldier, simply follow orders until death happens. As he is bound to embrace whatever the Imperium asks of him, Slug is caught in an identity crisis. He has begun learning to utilize skills besides being a soldier, no word if he will succeed. He is currently investigating with his team of acolytes.
Slug's tattoos are yellow and blue. Blue tattoos mark his identity, yellow are for his own reference. His facial tattoos, and other scrolling tattoos mark his clan, use name, father, and that he is Strife born. Yellow tattoos include pictographs are lessons mastered, such as different sword forms, while other yellow tattoos list the things that he has killed.
