Information Known by Arkangel Society

Decius was a Sergeant on Cadia, repelling invasions from the Eye of Terror, they needed a translator for Eldar so sent him off to learn where it turns out he has a knack for languages and culture. He was then recruited into the New Rememberancer Order and sent to Arkangel by a higher-up in the Administratum, overrulling his request to return to Cadia. He dislikes the Administratum as such. He takes great pride in his linguistic skills and time in the Guards, even more so in his Imaging.


3rd Child of Colonel Darrius and Major Levia Crane, still posted on Cadia.

Known Associates


He's taken heretical images and keeps them handy.

He's not actually human, it's a foul xeno trick to gather intelligence on the Rogue Traders.

Some say that if you see him, that's only because he wants you to see him.

  • "It's nice to have souvenirs, but sometimes I worry that 'souvenir' is just another word for 'evidence'." - Mac
