Bad puns aside, I'm posting an update on my Radical Malleus Inquisitor (Dajid Phyran)'s retinue. A Quick update, nothing fancy.
First up is Shadrune Kane. Kane is a former ISS (Interplanetary Security Services - An elite freelance security company based in the Surelcant subsector) Boarding Officer. Essentially he checked incoming vessels cargo to make sure illegal substances were not on board. Kane found a ship entering the ports of Lithiak III, and upon inspection found the cargo to be captured and drugged females. The ship happened to be part of large sex trafficking operation and when Kane attempted to uncover the crime he found a young noble was actually running the operation. When Kane tried to bring the noble to justice, the noble's influential father stepped in, and the noble's son was found to be "innocent". Kane was given the duty of returning the noble to his home to release him, however Kane ended up taking a detour and executed the young noble, knowing the price it would bring. Eventually Kane was captured by ISS authorities and was to be put to death. However, as Kane awaited execution Inquisitor Phyro stepped in an pardoned him, forcing his release. As it turns out Kane was supposed to turn a blind eye to the trafficking (as the local ISS forces were doing), and when it was uncovered Phyran pieced this information together with local Slaaneshi cult activity to figure out what was going on. Together Phyran and Kane brought the cult to an end and Kane joined Phyran's retinue.
Shadrune is a man who has strong moral conviction, but is not afraid to play fast and loose with the law to do what he considers is right. A firm believer in street justice rather than court justice, Kane is a determined, stoic, and incredibly stubborn individual who is rather cunning, and uses this to his advantage both in investigation and in a firefight.
Next up is Jad Neth.....he is a former local detective from Marredoral who left the force in disgrace after a shady cover up (selling repossessed narcotics to local crime lords) he was involved in. He later turned into a free lance investigator and man-hunter. He is the best money can buy when it comes to finding people, places, and organizations. He has served with Phyran for quite some time, and they have become rather good friends, with friends being quite uncommon to both individuals.
Neth is an interesting man. On the surface, he seems cool, collected, and all about the cash, but beneath it he is a very turbulent soul. He is secretly ashamed as his time as a corrupt investigator, and has taken to working for the Inquisition as a form of repentance to pay for his past crimes. Neth is very clever, intelligent, and charismatic and is a man who knows how to weave a nasty web, always staying three steps ahead of his quarry.While Neth may have trouble finding conviction, he is a loyal friend and a useful ally.
Apologies for the somewhat incoherent writing of the brief backstories of both characters, I'm pretty exhausted. I just finished up an eight day work week (and last night I saw the midnight showing of The Hobbit- which I really enjoyed!) so had to keep things brief to allow me to get to bed.......now! Thanks for looking and feedback is already appreciate.
