Rogue Trader - Orthesian Legacy
“I claim this world and the servitude of its inhabitants. Those who submit will find me a firm but fair lord. Those who refuse my rule will find me a merciless foe. Both are equally welcome.”
Djanko Scourge has been described by some of his many rivals and detractors as having the “psychopathic tendencies of a Fenksworld Pit Thing, but only half the charm.” Some have gone so far as to say this is a terrible slur on the Pit Thing. Djanko’s Warrant of Trade was granted to his great-great-grandfather, Lord-General Khako “the Scourge,” following the prosecution of the highly destructive Jade Reach Suppression. During that decade-long campaign, Khako is said to have razed a dozen worlds, a record his descendant is determined to match.
Djanko has continued the family tradition of profiting from war and destruction. His particular method is to seek out lost human worlds rich in natural resources and claim them for himself (in the name of the Imperium of course). Furthermore, Djanko often takes it upon himself to “civilise” those heathen worlds he defeats in battle. Having entirely defeated a culture, he imposes his own, total rule upon it, installing his own administrators with himself as ultimate head of state.
Djanko is a bull of a man, well built if somewhat running to fat. He prides himself on the traditions established by his sire, and at all times maintains what he imagines to be a suitably martial bearing. To this end, he attires himself in full military dress uniform, adorned with all manner of medals, each of which celebrates his achievement in subjugating a world. At his belt, Djanko bears the gold-plated plasma pistol that once belonged to old Khako, a family heirloom that has seen a great deal of use over the years.
