    Name: Kara'shanwe Sulvelia aka Kara
    Gender: Female
    Craftworld: Biel-tan
    Class: Warp Spider

    Gear: Heavy Aspect armour, Warp jump generator, Deathspinners, personalised las pistol with purple beam (no game effect, just pretty), personal stuff (clothes, toothbrush etc).
    Kara's Shrine of the Spider Ascendant favour two smaller spinners over a single gun for greater tactical flexibility, although regular Aspects have to deploy both at once to get the same damage to a target that the larger gun would cause. Following the example of their Exarchs they also wield blades attached to each forearm, the better to mimic the spiders from which they get their name, though these are not as powerful as the ancient Exarch weaponry. [Jorimel's note aka fluff not cheese]

    History: Kara'shanwe is currently studying the Path of the Warrior in order to give her a solid foundation in Craftworld life and the ability to defend and fight for what she believes in. However, Kara believes that there is a time for seriousness and a time for enjoying life. Battle is for stern countenances and driven goals. Why do we fight? So that we may enjoy the life we preserve. Kara has a mischevious sense of humour and doesn't always act with the gravitas and decorum her Craftworld desires. Because when you are one failed warp jump away from screaming oblivion, are you going to let that abyss stare back into you, or enjoy the party?

    Spending so much time traversing the unreal space of the Warp has made Kara hyper-aware that there are three spatial dimensions and it seems such a shame to use only two of them properly the majority of the time. She will be quite at home perched halfway up a wall or perhaps hanging from her knees over a roof-beam. After the dangers of the Immaterium, what's a little blood rushing to the head?

    Shady, please let me know if the spinner variant is OK :) They do the same as the regular gun when added together, so they don't do more damage.

    I haven't forgotten about this. It was rather slow at first so I moved to starting another rp on Discord, but then interest picked up. I've since started said RP so this is next on my list. Soon.TM

    Name: Jyn'so

    Gender: Female

    Class: Baron

    Craftworld / Corsair Group: Corsairs of the Azure Thorn

    Appearance: Baron Jyn'so is a very short eldar female, only 5'2" in height. Her mesh armour is sleeveless, and her left arm sports a jewelled bracer. Her hair is dark, dyed purple at the tips and banded into a pony tail, with ragged bangs hanging over her face. Her right arm appears at first glance to be armoured, but on closer inspection it is clear that she sports a wraithbone prosthetic, almost in the style of a wraithguard's arm. At her left hip she wears a long, slim power sword in a jewelled scabbard, and she is liberally festooned with pistols of various types. On her back, attached to hard points on her armour, she wears a small grav-generator style of jetpack. A specially fitted long, sleeveless coat that fits around the protuding jetpack completes the ensemble.

    Gear: Jetpack, heavy mesh armour, power sword, 2 splinter pistols, 2 shuriken pistols, shadowwave grenades, plasma grenades

    Jyn'so was born on the Craftworld Ulthane, a great moon-sized ship drifting through what the humans call the Segmentum Obscurus. In her 33rd year, the craftworld fell under attack by the Imperial Navy, as their Inquisition believed the craftworld to be hiding an ancient techno-artefact they had been searching for. The humans were repelled, but at great cost. Fully two-thirds of the craftworld were destroyed, wraithbone twisted and blackened beyond all recognition. Millions upon millions of eldar lives were lost, the infinity circuit filled to bursting with their souls, and Jyn'so was left orphaned, with no family remaining other than her aunt Kælara, and a deep, burning hatred for the humans.

    She and her aunt demanded vengeance, and many eldar followed their lead, but the craftworld's council denied their plea, stating that they were too injured, too weary to pursue a cause of death against humanity. Bitterly disappointed, Kælara staged a revolt. She failed. She, Jyn'so, and all her followers were sentenced to exile, doomed to never again set foot on the only home they had ever known.

    That night, Kælara and Jyn'so were freed by a follower who had managed to remain uncaptured. Together, they released the rest of their compatriots, and stole away to the docks. They started preparing to steal a small frigate, but as the alarm was raised, their true intentions became known. Guards started converging on the frigate, including those stationed aboard the nearby Void Stalker battleship. As the guards breached the frigate's airlocks, the exiles had already launched themselves from the ship, jetpacking their way towards the Void Stalker. Working quickly, they freed it from its moorings, and blasted their way into space.

    Twenty years later, Kælara is the Prince of the Azure Thorn Corsairs, and Jyn'so is a Baron, Kælara's loyal second in command. Upon hearing of the dire tidings surrounding the Ourilicis system, Kælara dispatched Jyn'so with instructions to join the efforts of the eldar there. Her mission? Prevent whatever calamity is due to pass. And to further the interests of the Azure Thorn, by any means necessary.
