Rogue Trader : The Barbannos Dynasty
Rogue Trader of the Grael Dynasty, he came to the Koronus Expanse to find new territory for his dynasty.
Captain of Fergus’ Hammer, and current bearer of the dynasty’s Warrant of Trade, Malachi Grael has lived an interesting life. He inherited the Warrant of Trade at a relatively young age, inheriting it from a father who was renowned throughout the Segmentum as a stalwart Rogue Trader. Not long after ascending to command over the dynasty, Malachi made some brash decisions which resulted in the destruction of all but one of the dynasty’s dozen ships, and nearly costing him his life.
Badly wounded, Malachi turned to the Adeptus Mechanicus for aid, and thus began his steady path to becoming machine. He fell in love with technology, and soon desired to overstep every bound placed between technology and those not of the Adeptus Mechanicus.
However, this greatly tarnished his reputation and the reputation of the entire Grael Dynasty. It wasn’t long before it became quite clear to him that he was going to have to find some new turf. Not a single person of any influence in all of Segmentum Tempestus had any respect left for him or his dynasty. At this time, many who had served the Dynasty for generations abandoned him. It was time to move on. And so he did.
Ten years later he arrived at Port Wander with an almost entirely new crew, and hasn’t looked back since.
In the Koronus Expanse, there were few who recognized his name, for good or for ill, and that’s exactly the way he wanted it. The Koronus Expanse was a fresh start for the dynasty. It was time, now for the Rogue Trader to carve out a new name for himself.
