Lord Captain Tollman

Information Known by Arkangel Society

Tollman has been operating in and out of Arkangel for some time now, having an association with the fortress-port that goes back even before the onset of the Hypatian Crusade. It is widely rumoured that the Lord Captain was once an Inquisitor and has had something of rocky history with the powers that were on Arkangel. Tollman is well known for keeping strange company and for being a collector of stranger artefacts. Known to be an expert in numerous occult matters and disciplines, Lord Captain Tollman is often hired by other Dynasties in order to assist with the resolution of various unconventional problems. Supposedly, Tollman undertakes some sort of obscure duty linked to the protection of Arkangel and is well compensated by the station for such.

Lord Captain Tollman and Ynabrae Starseeker


  • "I know men like you, the way you know men like me and I know you would not have done this if you believed there was the least chance of it coming back on you. Well guess what? It has come back on you like the hand of Him on the Throne." - Tollman to a suspect during interrogation
  • "For a guy who quit his job in the secret police to become a space pirate, Tollman is a real solid citizen. I owe him one, in a non-binding kind of way." - Mac
  • "One of my oldest and only surviving friends, of Lord-Captain Ambrose Tollman I say only this: you will rarely meet a Champion of the Most-Holy God-Emperor so brutalised by tribulations and terrors, and yet also so undefeated by them. In Tollman's steadfast nature, there are lessons of betterment for us all to heed, regardless of our station." - Augustronomos Corophasian-Ingamar-Vicher, Navis-Scion of the House Corophasian.
  • "Tollman is the keystone of Arkangel. Without his wisdom and fortitude, I fear we would all surely crumble." - Thunder
  • "A good man, he has a dark past that has torn apart his soul and still he carries on helping others. I do not think I could be the same in his place." - Maximillion
  • "We have our uses for each other." -Ed'wari
  • "Tollman needs to learn to trust so he can teach. Otherwise what will happen if he dies? Very kind to me and very cold at the same time. He has done many hard things because he did not want other people to have to, and he is wounded by that." - Skyfall
  • "Terrifying fellow! suppose that makes sense though given his life, still, I wouldn't want to cross wits or weapons with him." - Cartwright
  • "I'm just sayin, I called it. Only met him a couple times when it happened, but they said he was going psyker - which, I like the bloke and all, usually, but that was fuckin' karma - and right away I was like 'telepath'. He's just the type, y'know?" - Spider
  • "Stomping around in his big coat and his big hat and big boots... and yet to see him do anything. Heard a lot, though." - Araq
  • "Not sure I'd trust an ex-Inquisitor completely but he's put the hard graft in for the people around him so maybe he's not all bad." - Rusev
  • "An interesting man with an interesting past, though I must admit I care less about that than I do about what he intends to do from here on in." - Lord-Captain Sireena Jocasta of the Blood of House Cerastes
  • "In another life he might have been a true enemy. Lucky for us both we are not living our old lives." - Arkady Borovich
  • "Tollman is man who has seen many things, not all good. Maybe this is why he surrounds him with interesting comrades. However, he is effective in what he does, that at least should be respected." - Magos Karchev

  • "OK, revision time... seems to know how to get shit done, and not care much about anything unrelated to what he wants to see done. I wonder, what has he been through to have such ruthless respect for his own time?" - Araquiel

  • "I understand him, how you could grow to be like he is, I wish I did not." - Maximillion
  • "He has shown the ruthlessness of a Commissar and the skill set of a Black Ops officer. It is a good thing he working with us." - Oberarzt Azrael Schwarzekappel
  • "We looked across our plane together and saw hatred and cruelty, and wept. For with a portion of these gifts we would make a better place for all." - Ed'wari
  • "Every time I see him he is giving something else of himself to the cause of archangel, I can only hope that when he has given his last I am there to pick him up." - Maximillion
  • "I will treasure the apology for longer that most would think. But nothing shown dissuaded me from choosing to follow him." - Friedrich Sternenlicht
  • "Honest to God-Emperor terrifying and you'd never dare tease him to his face. But also really sad, like a man who already fell apart at the seams but felt compelled to stick himself roughly back together because no-one else would. Sky tells me he's going to die in fire and horror. I'm not at all sure if he actually _wants_ to or not. Would he be angry if people saved him, or does he secretly want them to but is too proud to say it?" - Artemisia Minerva Tabbris Blair
  • "A better soul than even he himself realises." - Thunder
