@Zarkun Yeah, in my previous post, Eggman asked Jason, since he's from the future of this universe, if he knew where there would be any large scale droid factories, since Jason was talking about how he was hoping to make allies of the Separatists:
"Well, if it ain't Doctor Eggman to the rescue again?" He pulled his trousers up a little to emphasize. "You wanted an army of Robots from those Seperatist guys? Well, it just so happens that armies of Robots are my speciality!" He said with a big grin. "In my youth, when not conquering Mobius, travelling to alternate dimensions, or-" His face soured and scrunched up "Crushing annoying blue rodents and their friends" he ground his teeth whilst saying "I was building armies of Robots." He stood up again and turned on the projector "Yessiree, we've got Robot animals, Regular robots, A few early creations i'm not too proud of..., Swat-Bots, Tank-Bots, Robot Fighters, Robot Masters, Robot Hedgehogs, One-Robot-Armies, Giant Robot Me's, So many fantastic machines!" He laughed maniacally. "Only problem." He pressed a button on it to show them the Egg Carriers robot factory "Egg Carriers factory is designed to maintain her standing crew of 5,000. Making a full army with this limited facility is gonna take time..." He then turned to the Resurgence's Captain again. "So, any giant robot factories around here that we might be able to commandeer? Because if we can, i can pump these things out on the double."
Eggman watched as a new person entered, as though she was someone he might recognize. It wasn't until after she mentioned that she was the one that brought them here that Eggman's smile crept wide across his face. "Oh boy..." He laughed. "Look, lady, if there is something that i've learned when it comes to alternate-universes it's this. "Trust no-one, especially not yourself"" He then got up and looked at her. "Alright, if you're all that powerful, you want us to defeat this Anubis guy?" He rubbed his brow "I'll be brutally honest. In my youth, i was a bad egg, conquered my Mobius, built my own empire... I have raised and controlled 3 Gods of destruction in my time, all 3 got too powerful and turned on me. All 3 were taken down by an annoying blue rodent weilding the 7 Chaos Emeralds. I just so happen to have, at my disposal, an annoying blue rodent that can harness the same powers." He quickly tapped on his control pad, before his personal projector showed a picture of A Golden anthropomorphic hedgehog fighting a giant water creature then The same golden figure fighting a giant, multi-eyed, tentacle monster. and finally a large, bird-like monstrosity, fighting 3 golden hedgehogs. "Get me those Emeralds and i get you your god-killer." He looked around at everyone.
"Say what you like about me relying on those Emeralds, but in my experience, conventional weapons don't work on people like this. If i could just build a Death Egg and vaporize him, i would, but if what she's saying is true, then not only do we not have the time, it wouldn't work anyway." He eyed the woman up. "So, can i have my Emeralds?"
@Queen Raidne Eggman is going to pester the fuck out of her to get the Chaos Emeralds for him. I mean, if this Anubis guy is all-powerful, then, as far as he's concerned, it's gonna take a Super Transformation to take him out.
Appearance: Ruubai is about 11'5, short black hair and possessing a long, thin mustache with a thick, full beard. His face looks notably similar to those humans from the Asia area of Earth, it is also completely immaculate, possessing no scars or physical blemishes. His armour is green and covered in gold heraldry of Dragons. He wears a small, knot-like crown on his head.
Psyker Status: Level 2, Although not immensely powerful, his mind is connected to The Warp. As part of his training with Mizuki, he was taught several abilities, including some Pyromancy spells, as well as some Telepathy and some Telekinesis spells. The power he mainly uses, however, is Smite. Life and Times: Ruubai was, like all of his brother, cast across the universe when only an infant. Ruubai landed on the planet of Shu and was adopted by a farmer and his wife. The boy grew up in a peaceful village, helping his father attend the farm. When he was only about 10 years old, his village was attacked by a bandit army. In the ensuing battle, Ruubai managed to overpower the bandit warlord and killed him. After witnessing this feat, a local swordmaster took him in and began training him with a blade. The boy quickly and was soon just as skilled and powerful as his master. At the age of 16, he left his village and began looking for a new master to teach him to be better. He was determined to build a better world to live in, and to keep it bandit free.
After less than a year of searching, he came across a pair of men fighting in a glade. He sat and watched them for a while, listening to them debate each other as they faught. Eventually, he intervened between the two men and defeated the both, then asked them to join him in building a better world. Gaul Yuar and Zahara Mai were their names.The men joined him and fought across the great world, trying to find a legendary master to teach them the skills required to build their better world. During the search, they got wrapped up in a rebellion against one of the Empires of the world. After a long and bitter war, Ruubai was elected as the new head of the empire. On the eve of his coronation, he met with Gaul and Zahara in the Palace gardens. At which point, they became sworn brothers. Ruubai, now aged 34, was a giant of a man, over 11 foot tall.
Over the following years, Ruubai warred with other countries in order to try and bring them under his control. Although he was strong enough to overpower his own enemies, he wanted to make his power absolute. He had heard rumours of a witch that lived atop Mount Paekato. If he could bring Magic onto his side then he knew that building the perfect world would only be a matter of time. Alone, he climbed to the top of the mountain and met with the witch. She was an old, decrepit woman, named Mizuka, who refused to join him until he could best her in a competition of her choice. For the next 3 years, every day, she would test his own abilities against hers. Every day, he trained his mind and body to be better than hers at the days test. until eventually, she had nothing left to teach him. He insisted that she join him. She agreed and, before his eyes, transformed into a young, beautiful woman. It was merely a mind trick that she used on him, to convince him that he was the legendary witch. The witch in question had been her great, great grandmother and each daughter would take their mothers place as the Witch of the mountain.
Ruubai and his brothers fought across the world, bringing it into the empire and creating a utopia where peace and security was assured to all. Ruubai married Mizuka in a grand ceremony in the palace. Although they could not hope to consumate their relationship (Due to his immense size and lack of sexual drive) It was decreed that Ruubai and Mizuka would not have to to make their marriage official.
After the coming of the Emperor, Ruubai was sent out into the stars to conquer them for his father. His brothers, too old to undergo Geneseed implantation, were given special armour and gene-enhancements. Although, Zahara did not last long, quickly being felled and interned into a Dreadnought body. He has personally lead 3 Campaigns. 2 against alien species that no longer exist, one against a rogue Mechanicum planet, now is involved in a campaign with his brothers.
Ruubai sat atop his Ceremonial throne in the palace. The Ceremonial throne was in a small, yet lavished building in front of the palace where he could attend to public matters. The throne had to be specifically built for him as the previous throne of the Emperor had been far too small to carry his immense frame. The Palace was located at the top of a hill, with stairs that sloped down to the capital, a mile in length. In front of him was a pair of farmers, each arguing about land ownership.
"My Liege, Mr Suntai's Bangral herd broke its fence and invaded my Pumprok field, I humbly ask that he be held accountable." one of them called.
"Your Majesty, Mr Erang neglects to mention the fact that he was responsible for the maintenance of that fence. When I moved into the province, we discussed the fence and came to the agreement that he would look after the fence, whilst I gave him the... Leavings... Of my herd." the farmer replied.
"Yes, but-" The farmer began. Ruubai looked at Mizuki. At this point, Mizuki stood up and raised her hand, indicating silence.
"Enough," she called. "Emperor speaks." She then walked towards Ruubai's throne, he craned his neck down and listened to her whisper in his ear, quiet enough that the farmers wouldn't be able to hear it. Ruubai then stood up.
"My judgement is as follows." he said. "Mr Erang is at fault for not keeping maintenance of the fence." he then turned his neck to the other farmer "However, Mr Suntai is in direct violation of herding laws by allowing his herd to graze within 100 feet of a fence to a field containing valuable crops." He stated. "I hereby decree that Mr Suntai pay Mr Erang half of the total value of his destroyed crops, whilst Mr Erang fixes the fence." He then sat down "You may leave." he rested his elbow on the arm of the thrown and rubbed his brow. The farmers looked frightened, but bowed before leaving. "How many more today?" he asked Mizuki. She looked around at the door to the main throne-room and closed her eyes.
"... 31 more cases." She then looked at him and smiled, he gave a soft smile in return "Nobody said being Emperor was exciting. But look at what you have accomplished." she waved her hand at the bright coloured walls, lined with precious metals and jewels "You live in the lap of luxury. You have ensured peace and protection for your people. You have an army so large that none would dare rise against you and a love from the people that consolidates the peace... And you have a wife that loves you very much." she smiled. He returned the warmness of her smile.
"As do you have a husband that loves you equally." They shared a kiss, which was quickly interrupted by a loud laughter. Ruubai stood up immediately and walked down the steps from his throne towards the door, Mizuka following quickly. He saw Zahara and Gaul walking up the steps, Zahara with each arm around a womans shoulder.
"Bwahahaha! Brother, the triumphant have returned!" Zahara called. Gaul looked at Zahara with a look of disdain.
"I once again raise my objection to you bringing your..."
"My bunnies." he called, before giving one of them a deep embrace. He then let them go and threw his arms wide as he approached Ruubai. The Emperor threw his arms wide and picked up both of his brothers.
"MY BROTHERS!!!" he laughed. he then put them down "How went the battle."
"My strategy was perfect. The enemy was completely wiped out with minimal casualties." Gaul replied, before getting slapped on the back, hard, by Zahara.
"As always. You should have seen him, brother, the bandits had no idea we were there until half of them were riddled with arrows and the other half had swords at their throats. We took 1000 men too many." he then handed Ruubai an immense, curved sword. Not large enough to look big in comparison to Ruubai's hand, but big enough that Zahara had to hold it in two hands. It was tradition to take the enemy leaders sword and give it to the commander as a sign of victory.
"My only regret is that I could not be there to assist you." It was at that point that a shadow appeared over them. None of them paid attention at first, merely assuming it to be a cloud. It wasn't until they heard the sound of a large heavy object hitting the ground with a clatter that they began to become concerned. Ruubai looked around to see one of the guards had dropped their spear as they looked up at the sky. He looked up as well... It was a strange sight. "Brothers." he said. They all looked up to see a large object moving slowly across the sky. "An omen?" he asked Mizuki. She closed her eyes.
"No... Something else... Powerful... Immensely powerful." she grabbed her head and fell to her knees. Ruubai immediately knelt down with her and placed his immense hand on her shoulder "I have never... Known such power... Such power cannot exist..." A tear formed in her eye "Such power... It's beautiful..." She smiled as tears continued to roll down her cheek. "I see a man..." she continued. "Tall... Shining... Golden... I can't..." It was at that point that Ruubai picked her up and began to carry her inside.
"Brothers, assemble the army." he ordered, they nodded. Zahara dismissed his "Bunnies" and then ran off with Gaul to assemble the army.
"If the Golden Man is spoiling for a fight, it's a fight he'll get." Zahara grunted as they rushed past the line of people, waiting to see the Emperor and have him settle their disputes. "Women and Children, get to your homes," he called to them "We are under attack."
"All Able-bodied men, prepare to repel invaders." Gaul called. The line quickly dispursed and the two brothers were caught in the tidal-wave of people attempting to get away from the fighting. "If this golden man is as powerful as Mizuki suggests, then I fear none but our brother will stand a chance against him." Just as they reached the bottom of the stairs to the palace, they heard a roar that split the heavens. Looking up they could see a large metal craft descend from the sky. Far smaller than that which blocked out the sun. The craft landed in front of the stairs and in front of Gaul and Zahara. The two men immediately drew their weapons. Zahara wielding the Iron Viper, a spear with a serrated edge at the top and Gaul weilding the Blue Dragon, a Halberd with an inlay of a dragon on the blade. They pointed their weapons at the craft as a ramp slowly descended. They looked inside to see an intense light. 4 men descended from the ramp and stood to the side, each of the men almost as tall as Ruubai... Then another man appeared, this man was as tall as Ruubai. He wore brown armour and a helmet, he stood to the side of the 4 men, before a final silhouette appeared. The man took a single step out of his craft and Gaul and Zahara were stricken by fear. Not the ordinary fear that this could be their final battle, but an intense, burning fear, one that threatened to consume their souls. Neither man could move.
"He is this way, father." The brown-clad man said.
"We stand no chance alone... Together with our brother, though..." Gaul managed to hiss to Zahara. The 5 men began to move up the stairs, none of them paid any mind to the brothers. The brothers instinctively began to retreat back up the stairs towards the palace. The 4 gold-clad men were intimidating, but the Brown armoured man and the Golden man were something completely different, immense and god-like. Looking at him made their hearts quake and every fiber of their being scream to put as much distance as they could between them and the man.
Ruubai stood at the top of the stairs and looked down, Gaul and Zahara finally managed to meet with him. "Brother, the Golden man," Zahara wheezed. "He is here..."
"We could do nothing... His very presence was poisonous." Gaul added. Ruubai drew his sword.
"Brothers... If he is as powerful as my wife says, I doubt I alone will be able to fight him. It would give me the greatest of honour to-"
"Have us die at your side?" laughed Zahara. "Nothing would make me happier." Gaul looked at them both. He had no wish to face the golden man in combat, but the oath he made under the peach-tree told him there was nothing else he could do.
"I will not abandon you, brother." Gaul said. "I will fight to my last breath." he clutched his Halberd tighter before turning around and looking down the winding stairs, the entourage of the Golden man had almost arrived. The palace guard came to join them, standing to attention behind their Emperor. Ruubai walked until his feet were at the very edge of the first step.
"Golden Man." he roared. "You have come to the palace of Ruubai Han. The Emperor of Shu, the Leader of the most powerful army this land has ever known. I have faced armies by myself and have turned suicide missions into a slaughter that my enemies have never recovered from. My blade is strong and my cause is just. I will not allow you to bring harm or ruin to my people. If you wish my kingdom then I will fight thee in the most fair way possible. I will choose 2 of my men to join me, as will you choose 2 of your men to join you. If we defeat you in combat, you will leave without harm, if you defeat us, we will surrender the kingdom to you." he called. "There is no need for bloodshed." He then turned and walked back to Gaul and Zahara "I feel his presence. If we send the army against him, it will do nothing but throw away the lives of our men. We will face the Golden man together and, win or lose, this will end without the death of our people."
"I agree" Gaul said. "If we incur the Golden Mans wrath, the people will suffer the most. You made the correct decision as Emperor to guarentee their safety first."
"We have guarenteed nothing." Zahara replied. "How do we know that the Golden Man will honour or even accept your terms?" It was at that point that the sound of heavy footsteps honed into earshot as the 6 men reached the summit of the stairs. Ruubai gripped his sword tightly.
"Our Father accepts." The Brown armoured man boomed, looking at Ruubai. Ruubai was a little confused, but he assumed that the Golden Man treated all of his soldiers as his children. The Golden man and his men walked to the center of the palace grounds. It was a large, wide open space with a Peach tree in the middle. The golden man, the brown armoured man and one of the golden soldiers stood on the grass and drew their weapons, whilst Ruubai and his brothers stood across the field from them.
"In the name of Shu, in the name of the eternal peace we have created, in the name of the eternal bond we forged as brothers, this day, we will know victory." he said to his brothers. The Golden man stared at him with a look of mild annoyance. The three men gave a bellow before charging. Zahara rushed the Golden soldier and clashed his spear against the spear of the soldier, but in one swift movement, the soldier pushed Zahara to the ground, before the butt of the spear was slammed into his head, rendering him unconscious. Gaul faired no better, the brown armoured man was far more agile than he looked, side-stepping the halberd blade and quickly attempting to knock the legs out from under him, but Gaul was quick to jump over it and lashed at him with the halberd, dragging the blade across his helmet, but failing to so much as scratch the paint. This was when the armoured mans hand grabbed Gaul by the torso and planted him on the ground, before pressing the tip of his spear to Gaul's throat.
Ruubai had charged straight for the golden man who did naught to defend himself. Ruubai swung the blade around his head before attepting to bring his sword down, through the Golden man's chest. The Golden man raised his gauntlet allowing Ruubai's sword to collide, before shattering into a million pieces. before Ruubai's awe-struck eyes. Ruubai looked around at his brothers, one unconscious, the other about to lose his throat. The Golden man looking down at him. Ruubai gripped the hilt of his sword with part of the shattered blade still on the end. He knelt down before him "You... You have bested me, sir. I offer my blade to you in tribute to your victory, all I ask in return is that you treat my people with kindness and justice. They have not wronged you, the burden for opposing you is mine and mine alone." The Golden man reached down to the sword, but instead, gripped Ruubai's wrist.
"On thy feet." said the powerful voice. "Thou hast built a mighty empire upon this planet, a feat not unexpected. I have come to grant thee answers to all of thy questions. How hast one so powerful been born to such common folk. Why thou wast born, why thou must fight, why thou has such a deep and heated love for all humanity." he asked. "I shall not fell thee. For what father should fell his son?" Ruubai stared up at him as his eyes filled with tears.
"F... Father? My true father?" he asked... Although he didn't know why, because he had somehow known this all along, from the moment he had laid eyes on the man, there was something familiar about him. His face, his aura, his posture, his raw power. He did not have any doubt in his mind that this man was telling the truth. The brown clad man removed his spear from Gaul's throat. Gaul stood up and immediately went to see to Zahara. "But... How is this possible? I have sent many expeditions to find you, where have you been? Where are we from? Where is my mother?" he asked. He then turned to the brown clad man "Are you my brother?" before turning to the golden soldiers "Are-are you my brothers as well?"
"Ask not these questions here... For thou wilst find all of thy answers aboard my ship. Come." he said, turning his back and beginning to walk back to his ship. The six others in toe.
"Wait, father." Ruubai called. "I will come with you, but I must beg that you allow my brothers to come too." The golden man turned around and stared at Gaul and Zahara. Others of his sons had gained family that they had grown attached to, so he understood why he would ask.
"Thou may bringest thy brothers."
"And of my Wife? She is my sun, my moon, my evening star." at this point the Golden man stopped dead in his tracks. A wife? How had his son gained a wife? He had specifically designed them to not harbor such feelings as lust. This was completely unexpected.
"Thou hast a wife?" he asked. "Bring her before me..." Ruubai nodded and looked to one of the guards that had watched the battle.
"Fetch my Queen, but be gentle with her." he said, the guard nodded before running off, Ruubai looked back at his father. "She was nearly snuffed by the entropy that a man such as yourself exudes. Weakened just by using her magics to feel your presence." The Golden man was now more concerned. Not only was his son displaying traits that he was certain he had bred out of him, but now that had brought a psyker to him. Aboard his ship, when the Psytracker had picked up a powerful force emanating from the same location as one of his lost sons, he had assumed his son had latent connections to the warp. But now he learned that it was his bride, a psyker strong enough to feel his presence from orbit. For a moment, he considered destroying them for their deviation from his designs... But quickly realized that others of his ilk had been far worse mutated. If feeling love and marrying a psyker was the worst of his deviations, then he was possibly the closest he had to a son that had followed his designs. And who knows, maybe this wife could prove useful.
Mizuki slowly walked down the stairs of the castle, assisted by 3 guards. She was brought over to Ruubai whom she wrapped her arms around. "This man is... The Golden man and... Your father?" she asked, looking back at him. She slowly approached the Golden man and bent over to bow before him. Ruubai walked with her.
"As my bride, I do hope that one day, you will accept her as your daughter." he said. "And these two," he motioned to Gaul and the now rousing Zahara "As your sons. We share a bond and a soul." The Golden man raised his hand. He had no wish to cow down to such bold demands, even if it was from his son.
"There will be time to discuss this later." he claimed. "Now come." Ruubai picked up Mizuki in his arms and began to carry her, whilst Gaul and Zahara limped behind.
Ideology: A man that has clear devotions and ideals. He will fight tooth and nail to complete his convictions, against insurmountable odds. If he believes it will complete his objectives, he will gladly throw himself into a suicide assault, but due to being a Primarch, will find himself winning. The man is quite clearly unaware of his own size and strength, having grown up in a world that treated him as a large, but ultimately normal human. This can lead to his downfall as it can lead him to overestimate his enemies. Other than that, he serves as a paragon to the people, beloved by most members of the Imperium for his, seemingly, infinite compassion. He firmly supports Psykers, mainly because his wife is one and his views on Aliens are undecided. He deems them as something to be cautious about, but has yet to formulate a full opinion, due to several alien species that he has encountered, being perfectly willing to accept Imperial Rule, others have been tricky and outright xenophobically resistant, to the point where he has had no choice to exterminate them. Wargear:
Armour of the Rising Dragon: Green armour that is covered in gold heraldry of Dragons. It has specialist runes on it that were created by his wife that allow him to more easily deny those who may use Psyker powers to attack him.
The Emperor's Blade: formerly known as "The Nameless Blade", this sword was originally the sword of a Bandit that attacked his village. After killing the Bandit, he took the sword for himself, then reforged it when he became Emperor of his own country. Where he comes from, blades are named after great deeds that they perform, once he was Emperor, he had it reforged to fit his new status. After breaking it against his father's armour, he had it reforged once again into a Power Sword. It is an immense, Kris-bladed sword. with a dragon's head on the hilt, opening the jaws wide and allowing the tongue to snake its way up the blade.
Brothers Aegis: A Stormshield with a bladed edge and pointed end, running down his arm, meant just as much for offense as for defense, due to its sharp edge and pointed tip for stabbing. The underside of it is also armed with a pair of Volkite Chargers so that he is armed with a ranged weapon. Other:
Legion Number: XVII Legion Strength: 78,000 (20,000 Iron Vipers, 25,000 Blue Dragons, 32,000 Emperors Blades) Favoured Legion Tactics: Each of the 3 elements of the legion is designed to fight with their own particular tactic.
Move fast, hit hard, hit often. They utilize Bike and Skimmer based warfare, as well as the lighter aircraft of the Imperium to vivisect the enemies flanks in preparation for the others to finish them off. They are always the first to the fray.
Making great use of melee weapons and Storm Shields, the Emperors Blades will charge where the line is weakest and exploit the enemy. Mostly infantry, they do make great use of Dreadnoughts and other melee vehicles. However, should the situation call for it, they do have enough ranged weaponry to be able to win a sustained fire-fight..
The Heavy Weapons specialists. They will try to stay behind the Emperor's Blades at all times and provide them with the covering fire that they need. They make heavy use of long range artillery and heavy weapons, as well as making best use of the heaviest fighting machines known to the chapter, such as the Thunderhawk Gunships and Fellblade Tanks.
Legion Leadership: Although Ruubai serves as the head of the Legion, his brothers, Gaul and Zahara are considered Primarchs in their own right, as by royal decree from Ruubai. He split the legion into 3 in order to better facilitate this. with Gaul leading the Blue Dragons and Zahara leading the Iron Vipers, with the Iron Vipers referring Zahara whenever they mention their Primarch and Blue Dragons refering to Gaul in much the same way.
The Sworn Brother combat squads are sorted into squads of 30, lead by a Tunzhang. 30 Squads are a Company, lead by a Xiaowei. 5 Companies make a Regiment, lead by a Duwei, with 7 Regiments. Alongside the Regiments, the Emperors Blades keeps the Librarians, their Psykers that are trained by Mizuki and tasked with keeping the Great Library on Shu. The Emperors Blades always go into battle with at least a squad of Librarians, who are dispursed among the Legion, but get their orders directly from Mizuki, who stays in constant telepathic communication with them, guaranteeing that Ruubai has eyes and ears everywhere and constant access to his Legion for perfect command over the battlefield. The Emperors Blades have 3 Special/Heavy Weapons per squad, with Bolters and Chainswords, the Iron Vipers squads have 15 Heavy/Special Weapons in each squad, with the other members armed with Bolters, with orders to grab the Heavy/Special weapon, should their brother fall. The Blue Dragons are all armed with Bolt Pistols and Chainswords and Jump-Packs, always ready for melee.
Notable Legion Members: Gaul Yuar: Gaul is one of Ruubai's Sworn Brothers. Gaul was the first of his brothers to accept the genetic augmentations that would turn him into an Astartes. He is the leader of the Blue Dragons, about 8'1 with a long, flowing beard that reaches down to his waist, with long, raven hair that is tied up into a Topknot. He also wears a black leather eyepatch due to losing his eye to a foe that wounded him long before he met his brothers. Though he refuses to disclose the events of the duel, he also refuses to have prosthesis put in place of it, saying that it serves as a constant reminder to strive to better himself. Gaul is a warrior that specializes astride a steed, be it flesh or mechanical, he utilizes a Power Halberd (Specially modified for 1 handed combat, called "Blue Dragon") and Shield to charge his enemies and impale them. His phylosophy is "Strike before the enemy can strike back." Many armies have found their flanks quickly ran down by a spearhead from Gauls charges. Outside of combat, he is quiet, calculating and always either thinking up his next strategy or honing his skill with his blade.
Blue Dragons 1st Captain Karthus Marik: An Terran-born astartes and one of the first to ship out with Legion VII when they began their quest to find their lost Primarch. Karthus quickly earned a name for himself as one of the most competant commanders in the Legion. It was his heroics at the Battle of Baten Canyon that earned him a special commendation from His Majesty, He charged across a clear mile of no-mans-land to get to an Anti-Aircraft gun emplacement to shoot down a craft that was attempting to flee the battle-zone and carry the enemy leaders with it. It was his actions that brought the matter to a speedy close. He was allowed to give the Legion a name more befitting them. He replied that it was the greatest service any human could give was for his Emperor. As such, he named the Legion "The Emperors Blades." Marik is now 1st Captain of the Blue dragons, serving as Gaul's number 1 and a man that he can discuss strategy and tactics with. He rides a Jet-bike and is armed with a Relic Blade and Volkite pistol.
Zahara Mai: Zahara is the other of Ruubai's Sworn Brothers. Zahara chose not to undergone gene-alteration, as he had no wish to give up his life of drinking, fighting and spending his nights with beautiful women. A decision that would quickly be his undoing on the battlefield. Underestimating the forces he would face among the stars, he chose to remain unaltered for his first battle, but after nearly dying and being proven to be woefully undermatched by the Astartes, he made the mournful decision to take his brothers assistance and ascended to becoming an Astartes. Both he and Gaul were immensely disheartened that they were forced to spend the first 5 years of the Great Crusade on the sidelines, allowing the Gene-seed to warp and change his body. However, during the Savage Belt campaign, they were to put down Waaagh! Smashstompa. Gaul and Zahara were aboard a Thunderhawk that was shot down by an Ork Anti-Fly Battery, Zahara was badly wounded in the crash, using his own body to shield Gaul from the super-structure falling on them. The local Ogryns assisted them and managed to get them back to their supply lines. However, with only Gaul and the Ogryns to treat him (Neither of which were terribly well versed in medicine) his wounds were too severe to fix through conventional means. As such, he was forcably interned into a Leviathan Siege Dreadnought. His Dreadnought frame is equipped with a Leviathan Storm Cannon, Torso-mounted, twin Volkite Culverins and the "Great Iron Anaconda" A specially made spear for his Dreadnought body, built to mimic his spear, it is easily able to punch through even the strongest of hulls.
Iron Vipers 1st Captain Pretra Tiango: Tiango is a Terran-born woman that began her service in the Emperors Blades just after they were renamed from Legion VII. Pretra is a heavy weapons specialist and a lover of the machine spirits. She is normally seen with her head poking out of the hatch of a Fellblade or Predator, bellowing orders to the men and making sure that bullets and shrapnel fill every square inch of the enemy position. She is a no-nonsense person that serves as the 1st captain/minder of Zahara. When she was first put under his command, she would find his inassailable advances on her annoying, she grew to actually enjoy them and find hilarity in his attempts to make them defy their own biology. When having to repelle enemies from her vehicles, she will usually fight with either a Heavy Bolter, or, if the battle gets too close for her liking, a Plasma Pistol and Volkite Pistol.
Iron Vipers 5th Captain Xiaharo Kinta: Kinta was a Shu-Born Astartes and possibly the youngest captain in the army. Kinta was born on Shu after the planet joined the Imperium and has only ever known Imperial life. Growing up as the son of a delivery-serviceman, he quickly learned how to pilot the vast assortment of vehicles that his parents used. Kinta was soon found by the Apothecaries of the chapter and taken for gene-testing before being implanted at the age of 10. Kinta grew up into a powerful Neophyte, the geneseed was unusually potent in him, he grew noticably taller than the others. When he was finally made into a scout, he joined the Iron Vipers and was immediately taken under the wing of Zahara. Zahara trained the young Astartes in the arts of war and he found himself getting quickly promoted through the ranks. As a Sergeant of one of Zahara's Special Weapons squad, it was he that led his troops to outflank the Orks during the Smashstompa campaign and slew the warboss in single combat. Upon returning to the ship, he received word that Zahara had been interned in a Dreadnought. After meeting with him, Zahara gave the young Astartes his spear and, at the relatively young age of 70, was granted captaincy of the Iron Vipers 5th company. Kinta wears Cataphractii Terminator armour and weilds the Iron Viper in combat, as well as an Assault Cannon
Mizuki Han: The Wife of Ruubai and unofficially, one of the more powerful psykers discovered by humanity. Although a candle of psyker power in comparison to the Star that is the Emperor, she is still capable of bending reality through her link to the Warp. Officially, she is a Epsilon-class, but only her husband and the Emperor know that she is actually a Beta-class Psyker. The Emperor, although not pleased by her existance, is not hostile towards her, after all, he see's her as he see's all of his children and the 20 legions, a means to an end. This is something that ensures his sons loyalty and happiness. Although Ruubai is noticably annoyed that she never refers to him as "Father" due to the Emperor's wishes that he not be. Instead, she refers to him as "My Emperor" or "Your Majesty" but he does not question it in front of his father. In battle, Mizuki wears specially constructed Artificer Armour and wields a Force Sword, she fights by her husbands side.
Emperor's Blades 1st Captain Kurai Temna: Kurai is a Shu-born man that was born in Shao-Pang, a city in the north-eastern hemisphere of the planet in the country formerly known as "Nanmar" The Nanmarans were a savage people with a history of war. The Nanmarans were especially good at it, having been trained from the day they are born to be warriors. Kurai was an especially good soldier in the Nanmaran army, he was known as "Kutak-Bre-Temana" "The devil with 8 blades" He was so named as it sounded similar to his own name, as well as the fact that he always carried a vast assortment of weapons around with him. A sword, a bow, a knife, an axe, a spear, throwing weapons, you name it. During Ruubai's invasion of Nanmar, Zahara faught Kurai in single combat and was only just able to best the man, capturing him. After being brought before Ruubai, Kurai was given a full pardon and offered a position in his army to unify all of Shu. Temna accepted. After Ruubai became the Emperor of Shu, Kurai served as one of his personal bodyguards. When Ruubai became the leader of Legion VII, Temna was one of the first to be turned into a Space Marine. Ruubai told him that he needed a man to serve as his 1st captain, Kurai accepted without hesitation. Kurai is a beast on the battlefield, utilizing Tartaros-pattern Terminator armour, he is equipped with a Lightning Claw, Power Fist with a built-in storm-bolter and a Typhoon Missile Launcher rack. He still has a vast quantity of weapons.
Inspirations: Based on the Han Dynasty Army, with a flare of the "Romance of the Three Kingdoms" Assigned Armies:
Orain Mechanists: Heralding from a planet formerly under the rule of the Grand Mechanicul Commune, the Mechanists were an Army that utilize top of the line weaponry. Almost all of them have some kind of mechanical implant or upgrade. They also have access to an extraordinarily large amount of tanks, Plasma and Volkite weapons. They wear red cloth and pieces of Power Armour across their bodies.
Turbah Horde: The Horde is an extraordinarily large army, encompassing 1,000,000 men. They are barely trained and are split into 2 main parts of the horde. Those that are human and the mutants that are intelligent enough to follow orders are put into the Turbah Pioneers. They are mainly armed with Laslock and flamer weapons. Then there are the Turbah Ferevals. The Ferevals are armed with simple melee weapons, each squad being lead by a human with a pistol and a power weapon. They are a combination of Humans and Abhumans from a savage subsector, the Sons invaded and took as many able-bodied men as they could, leaving just enough behind to ensure the survival of the tribes. The Horde all wear flak armour with orange blazers and black trousers. The Psykers from the planets were conglomerated into teams known as "Guru Squads" The Guru's coordinate their power with each other member of the squad to cast blessings on their allies and maledictions on their enemies. Each Guru has a blast-collar around their neck with the squad being led by a Discipline-Master that has the detonator for their collars. At the first sign of losing control, the collars are detonated.
Steel Walls: The Steel Walls are an army of Ogryns that herald from a planet with increadibly high gravity. They were recruited after the Sons assisted them in repelling an Ork invasion, Ruubai took a liking to the beasts as they were physically superior to even his Space Marines. The Steel Walls are usually the first into the fray, and although they lack tactical prowess, their physical ability more than suplements it. Many armies have been caught off-guard and swept away by the Steel Walls charging down a hill from a heavily fortified position.
Legio-Volcanicus: A Titan Legion from the planet of Guarapuava. On this forgeworld, the Titans are considered the ruling class, with the Emperor-Class Titan, Santa Maria, serving as the steed of the High King, Martimus Laki. The Legion operates with an Emperor Class, 2 Warlord Battle-Titans the right and left hands of the High King, Krakatoa and Olympys Mons, 6 Reaver Battle-Titans and 4 Warhound Scout-Titans. Under the Volcanicus, there are 3 Knight Houses that serve the High King, making for a grand total of 28 Imperial Knights under him.
Other: As part of their initiation, every marine travels to Shu in order to stand under the tree and swear an oath of brotherhood.
Mainly posting OOC because it's shitposting. We don't do the Shitposting thing IC. Also, didn't realize that he was a character from the actual show. Plus, the next post he's gonna be more focussed on the "Get me a droid factory and i'll give you an army of giant robots." thing because IC dick measuring contests tend to drag out.
@Sep Bit of a weird argument. "Maybe you aren't the smartest one in the room, considering that you can't tell the difference between Interdimensional and Interuniversal travel."
The tempted response is "Interdimensional bridges designed and built by Eggman? 5. Time Machines invented by Eggman? 2. Interdimensional bridges/Time Machines designed and built by literally anyone else in this room...? Anyone...?" But i think the fact that Liz just walked in to give him the metaphorical bitchslap and Star Wolf impersonation will give him more concern.
