Lady Inquisitor Wealhtheow Andromeda Final Ink.
Ok everyone my wrist took a beating here with this, but I’m still gonna type out a quick backstory on here for this lady for those of you who, you know, take the time to read such things.
Skin- Deep hazelnut
Eyes- Ice Blue
Born on the Feral Wold of Grennz 7, classified by the Imperium merely as planet 378590-7, Lady Andromeda was born the middle daughter of 3 children.
Grennz 7′s human population had devolved over the passage of millennia since the planet’s loss of contact with Terra during Old Night, and was equated to be on the developmental level similar to that of the Cro-Magnon of primordial earth. The tribes of the world where heavily built and of tall stature, the better to deal with the harsh, near death world conditions of much of their planet.
Initially the planet was simply kept in orbital observance by the imperium through out much of the 32nd through 39th millenniums and used a labor and military recruitment world. However, towards the mid point of M40, a disaster struck the Grennz system when sudden warp storms tore through the region, obliterating most of the imperial observation platforms and depots, as well as inflicting the danger of a mass psyker awakening in the plant’s population.
It would be several hundred years before the Imperium was able to re-establish contact with the system, and in that time the tribes of Grennz 7 had fallen into a planet wide civil war, brought about by the sudden awakening of latent psykers within their population. Many of the superstitious tribes of the world worshiped a primitive ideal of the God emperor, seeing him as the god of knowledge, lighting and of warriors, and waged constant war against those tribes who began to succumb to the foul unrestrained taint of warp sorcery.
Andromeda’s family was not spared the horror of the conflicts, and by the time imperial forces manged to make the surface of the planet, intent on preserving as much of the world’s population as possible due to their use as heavy labor workers and indoctrinated soldiers, her extended family had perished in the wars.
The final blow came when her own father, long attempting to hide his own sudden powers became possessed by a malicious warp entity and proceeded to slaughter her mother and two siblings in front of her. Andromeda’s life was saved by the intervention of the elite imperial stormtroopers under the command of Inquisitor Lord Orebarion, who gunned down her father’s warping body with a consecrated bolter until it was a red smear across the ground in front of her.
Taken along with many other tribesmen and women who had come into contact with the warp based powers of their people, Andromeda was incarcerated in a Inquisitorial holding facility for nigh on 2 years, to insure no lingering taint afflicted her. After this time, the young girl was released for penitent duty to the ordos. During her indentured servitude, she displayed a curious hard backed notion of faith in the imperial creed, and a near unquenchable hatred towards psykers and those who used the power of the warp.
The young woman also achieved a quick grasp of basic Gothic, as well as the life of a surf in service to the ordos. It wasn’t long before the very man who had saved her took notice of the woman’s potential. Inquisitor Orebarion had her released from her debt of servitude, and raised to Acolyte status in his retinue.
For the next ten years Andromeda served her lord with a zeal that outmatched that of most other acolytes. Obtaining the title of inquisitor herself after she and her master successfully tracked down and eliminated a coven of heretic psykers within a notable highborn collage located on sprawling hive world.
On the death of her Lord, Andromeda was given the title of Lady and Orebarion’s place within the Ordo Malleus.
Some years later, She was gifted with an Agis of Terminator armor by the Mechanicus artificer adepts of a liberated forge installation on the distant moon of Krellson 8. Due to her inherent strength and sizable built, Andromeda had herself surgically implanted with cybernetic augments and import channels through her nervous system which allowed her to sync and wear the massive warplate as easily as an average human would wear any other armor.
Her hammer, a venerable Nemesis Daemon hammer, once carried by her master Orebarion is named Doom Slayer. Her armor also houses a small reliquary that contains the skulls of her mother and two siblings.
