Information Known by Arkangel Society

Skyfall arrived unexpectedly on the planet known as Garm's Leap, emerging from the darkness at around midnight. She was dirty, bloody, improperly dressed for the cold, and limping. She seemingly had limited Low Gothic and limited other means of communication. It was apparent that she had heard the sound of the drop bar crashing to earth, and had followed the lights looking for help.

It was quickly established that she was in fact a very powerful psyker, and with some recognition of the Aquilla and her speed at picking up their language, it seemed she was not born here, and had once perhaps been familiar with Imperial society.

She had no name, and decided she would earn one. This occurred swiftly when Anahita gave her the name she bares for stopping a lander crashing and preventing someone jumping off the side to their death.

Skyfall's origins are mostly unknown. She has shared almost no details of her past, and in fact it seems she may remember very little. She claims she fell from the stars when she was a very little girl, and before that she lived on a big ship, where she was alone a lot, attended to by strangers rather than her parents. Some believe this means she was of high noble birth, others have speculated that perhaps, even at a young age, people suspected what she might eventually become and kept her apart for safety.

Shortly after being taken to Archangel Sky spent many weeks aboard Lord Captain Tollman's ship, and returned notably quieter, baring the brand of a sanctioned psyker, and with far better Low Gothic.

Known Associates

Through Boiling Clouds of Thunder - One of the first people Sky came into contact with when she arrived. He protected her and took her under his wing, seemingly without question. Sky clearly utterly adores him and would follow her Lord Captain anywhere.

Erasmus Bloom - A wonderfully good and bad influence. A mischievous brother, one to gossip and explore with. A mind to be reckoned with.

Lytling Ddraig Aur - Her more reliable and sensible brother. A strong warrior, and kind soul who has adopted her into his house.

The Dancing Spectre - Newest friend. Still a confusing and new presence. But they are supposed to be here, Sky knows that.

Lord Captain Maximillion Alexander - Sky's close friend. Can frequently be seen giggling together in a corner like naughty children, frequently without being seen to speak at all.

Anahita - First human contact. First friend. Good, safe friend. Name giver.


Rumours

Sky is really some form of princess.

Sky is the heir to a forgotten Rogue Trader warrant.

The wild girl thing is all an act, and she's really a highly wanted criminal using this as a way to hide from the authorities.

Quotes

  • "Skyfall will surpass us all. More than the rising and setting of the suns, of this I am certain." - Thunder
  • "She is glorious and free. Her unrestrained power is so great, when she learns true control she will shake the universe before she is done." - Maximillion
  • "When I first encountered her, she was a skittish barbarian. She seems to be developing and adapting rapidly which to me speaks of great potential. Thunder seems to hold her in high regard so that speaks volume for her character." - Azrael Schwarzekappel
  • "Sometimes it's interesting to see us through an outsider's eyes. Even normal things seem strange to her, and strange things seem normal." - Mac
  • "My Grandfather always maintained that a little training and discipline made what was a wild animal exponentially more dangerous, I can't help but feel that this applies in this case also." - Cartwright
  • "A mon'keigh that is pure from the Emperor's light. I have not seen one like her in millennia." - Ed'wari
  • "Ah, Skyfall! Now Skyfall I like! I offered the young Telekine flippant, transitory insult whilst drinking, as is often my want. And Skyfall struck me with her power in retort, immediately, just as she should: injury in answer to insult. I bared my teeth in show, and whilst around the table others quailed and rushed to make peace, Skyfall did not so much as flinch; Skyfall did not give one iota of ground. Fierce as a Karnossic Tiger, if Skyfall's other qualities are forged from the same mettle as is her spirit, in a few short years she will stand as a titan of the Stygian Abyss." - Augustronomos Corophasian-Ingamar-Vicher, Navis-Scion of the House Corophasian.
  • "I like her style and her clothes would be the envy of all those in Sector 79b-R426.7 back home. She sees the world through a clearer lens than most of us, I just hope she doesn't lose that when she returns to the Imperium." Rusev
  • "Makes anything better just by being there. Without trying. Somehow. Just by being her." - Araq
  • "She's certainly becoming something to behold isn't she? Yes, I'm enjoying watching her develop very much. I sense great things from her, but remember that even terrible things can be great." - Victrix
  • "A grubby whirlwind." - Ambrose Cordell Tollman
  • "An example of why we are really out here and the reason that this should not be forgotten. Young, strong and willing to learn, may she grow in his Light." - Lord-Captain Sireena Jocasta of the Blood of House Cerastes
  • "She reminds me of Rusev in many ways. Not because she is a witch but because she is a survivor. Much like Rusev I wonder if we might have been kinder to leave her where we found her." - Arkady Borovich
  • "A blank datastack. Who she becomes is dependent on who writes code. I am glad she has found people who will not take advantage, and will kill those who will try. I should explain Machine God to her at some point" - Magos Karchev
  • "Hahahaha. You're dead!" - Erasmus Bloom
  • "An excellent individual to work alongside in the field hospital. Proved to be able to fully comprehend advanced medicae techniques. " - Oberarzt Azrael Schwarzekappel

  • "A bright beacon I was never worthy to be around." - Maximillion
  • "Watched her help that lad who was captured during the "change in political power". Her compassion shames me, I think I lost much of mine when Victrix was taken. - Cartwright
  • "Wars fought on a hundred worlds, desperate knife-fights in the dark of the underhive, surviving the Sump of Chernobog as a child. None of those caused as much fear and confusion as I feel right now. At least nothing caught fire this time... " Rusev
  • "If I had not seen the dress at the previous landing, I would have thought she had adapted to local culture very rapidly. Still proving to be firmly attached to her... feral... nature" - Oberarzt Azrael Schwarzekappel
  • "I find her insights grounding. It is already interesting how much they have changed her." - Ed'wari
  • "Were I still a whole man, I'd say something complicated. But I'm not, for which I grow more and more grateful every day - I think she does not need any more complicated in her life." - Araquiel
