Kyntus "Kyn" ArveleGender:
Warrior - Arbitrator, Cyber-Mastiff HandlerPersonal Demeanour:
Kyntus is an arbitrator, and the Adeptus Arbiter train only the fiercest and most impartial judges in the Imperium of Man. She is no exception. Headstrong, intelligent and thorough, Kyn sets an example amongst her colleagues for what an Arbitrator is supposed to stand for. Her head lies firmly entrenched in what the Imperium believes is justice, though her heart often says otherwise.
What she personally believes in is that everyone deserves a fair trial, whether others like it or not. This puts her at odds with most other Arbitrators, whose training is to always assume guilty until proven innocent (and even then). This, coupled with the fact that the Arbites are trained from the moment of their induction to always punish every crime, sets her mind apart from other Arbitrators. Of course, this being the Imperium of Man, the will of the Imperium comes first.
Kyn's mindset when it comes to a case is to look at it from afar, putting together the big picture using all the small clues and pieces of info she and her team have gained over the course of an investigation. As such, she's rather analytical and blunt when it comes to stating facts. This, coupled with her propensity for learning and knowledge, gives Kyn a keen eye for information.Speciality:
Tracking and capturing suspects.Rank:
Kyntus stands six feet and two inches tall, rather strapping for a woman her age. Her physique is that of a well-trained, well built Arbitrator ready for battle. With a square and slightly crooked nose, dark brown eyes and a close-cropped military hairdo, without her helmet on Kyntus is a prime example of the Imperium's standards for female grooming. Her armour livery is that of the Adeptus Arbites, plain and simple with the colours to match.History:
Hailing from Necromunda's Quinspirus Cluster, Kyntus got a start early on in life, as the daughter of a pair of Imperial scholars. A big spat of gang violence near her home left her family, and several others, dead, and Kyntus as an orphan. As a result of her parents' faithful work towards the Imperium of Man, she was picked up quickly by the Schola Progenium and sent to a school off-world, where she learned and trained herself into a strong, independent young woman who quickly proved her physical worth, both on the track and in beating off those who tried to bully or pick on her. This was when the Arbites first picked up on her worth.
Upon finishing her time in the Progenium, the Arbites were quick to pick her up on her return to Necromunda. She was quickly sworn into the service of the Imperium and put on patrol with fellow newbie troopers looking to earn their keep in thrones. Fast forward a few years, multiple violent confrontations, arrests and missions later, and Kyntus earned her Arbitrator armour and liveries. It was then that she was assigned to serve justice in a particular district, one in which she found her soon-to-be canine companion, a weakened dog on the side of the road. The bloodhound was lost, starved, but it led her on a winding trail that ended up in a warehouse being used by would-be cultists. Their sentence? Immediate execution.
Her quick thinking with the hound led to one of her fellow Arbitrators suggesting that she keep the pooch, perhaps having it nursed back to health and augmented as a cyber-mastiff. The idea was something she readily agreed with, and she branched out into the handling of these cybernetic canine companions. Soon the bloodhound she'd rescued, nicknamed Patches because of the myriad brown splotches on its fur and the patches of cybernetics enhancing its body, became her steady companion and has been to this day.Equipment and Armament:
- Vox Legi-Pattern Arbites Combat Shotgun
- Ius Automatic Pistol
- Agni Pattern Power Maul
- Subrique "Bloodhound" Cyber-Mastiff - This pooch, nicknamed Patches by her handler, is Kyn's go-to sniffer dog and tracker. Enhanced with biomechanical augments and implants (not a fully mechanical canine), Patches has accounted for many of Kyntus' arrests.
