Darius "Thundercock" Thunderfury
A haggard man, streaks of grey at the temple. A haunted look, as if expecting the shadows to pounce at him at any time
Wearing his grey power armor, strapping a heavy bolter to his back and two inferno pistols at his hip, Darius is an imposing vision. He prefers to run into the fray and lead his men from the front. Known for his skill as a marksman, and his ability to keep his cool in battle, he is well liked by the men. Those who come close to him however find a man clinging to his convictions like a drowning man to driftwood. Born on a fortress world he was baptized in blood at an early age. He spent some time with the guard, but soon found that having others bad decisions forced upon him left a bad taste in his mouth. After serving several years as a mercenary fighting smaller Waags in the Drusus Marches, Darius wanderlust made him pine for unexplored regions. He became a bountyhunter, making a name for himself in the Koronus expanse, until one day he ended up on the Cleopatra as chief of security.
The latest developments however has left him ruffled. He now attempts to muster an army to face the threats coming his way, be they external or internal. Whatever the case, he now waits for the inevitable leviathan to come swallow him hole. He intends to shoot his way out when that happens.

Inferno Pistols (Best quality)
The pistols are well oiled and maintained regularly. Their limited range making them favored only among the most fearless.
Heavy Bolter (Solar)
The heavy weapon is attached to a harness strapped on the back of the power armor. A quick release makes it available for wielding in an instant should the tide of battle require it.
Light power armor (best quality).
The power armor was hard earned through battle and conquest while aiding the Adeptus Mechanicus on the foundling worlds of the Koronus Expanse.
Darius was born on the fortress world of Ludos, a fortress world in the Ixaniad sector. The planet sits close to the border of the Calaxis sector. Once a great bastion of man in their protection against the Yu’Vath, it has now a retched cesspool of mercenaries and corrupt officials. The Imperial Navy still uses it sa a harbor and resupply station on its way to either Calaxis, or in extreme cases the Koronus Expanse, and fighting is still very much the trade of choice. Born to a gun-merchant, Ludos early learnt the way of the gun, and much to his father’s disapproval he joined the navy, taking a bout on a patrol mission, routing out heresy and immoral behavior on nearby agri, mining and feral worlds. The strict hierarchy of the navy did not suit young Darius, who after completing his tour ended up joining a mercenary band heading for Calaxis.
After several years of fighting the greenskins in the Periphery sector, in what was later to be known as the great WHAAAG! led by the orc Ghenghiz Grimtoof, Darius decided to try his luck as a bounty hunter. This took him to the Drusus marches, and after a long manhunt onward through Footfall and on to port wander. Here he picked up service with the great captain Thor Ironfist as chief of the guard.
