Rook Orthos was born from criminal parents on the penal world of Kommitzar in the Calixis Sector. When he was of age, he was drafted into the Kommitzar penal legion – and he served with distinction. For several years he served in battle after battle, gradually rising through the ranks; eventually he reached the rank of major and was transferred to a non-penal legion. He continued to serve the Imperium with honor and distinction – until, in a case of gross error, an officer of the Adeptus Arbites, seeing Rook’s penal legion tattoo, assumed he was guilty of something worth imprisonment. At the same time he was offered the position of arch-militant aboard the Rogue Trader vessel Iron Cerberus, and seeing he had an offer he couldn’t refuse, boarded the vessel and hasn’t looked back since. Now he serves as the chief military operative on the vessel, in command of the ship’s armsmen, as well as a capable combatant in his own right.

Rook is relatively tall at 6’ 1" and is solidly built. His black hair is cut in a perpetual buzzcut, and no matter how often he shaves he seems to bear constant 5 o’clock shadow. He has light brown eyes, an often-broken nose, and a number of scars all over his body, though none particularly remarkable.
