Rayard Castus is the orphan child of a minor noble house Scarus Sector. The history and circumstances surrounging the demise of his house were hidden from Castus during his placement in the Schola Progenium. Following graduation Castus was recruited into the Adeptus Arbites.

During an investigation into a black market operation on Gudrun, Castus infiltrated a cold trader cartel known as The Collectors. After months undercover, Castus was able to access the prize possessions of the cartel, a xenos artifact, called the Brass Gate. The Collectors were attempting to activate, blind to the perils of activating any device tainted by non-human technologies.

The cartel members became increasingly paranoid as they drew closer to unlocking the secrets of the device. As a result it was harder for Castus to communicate with his handlers so he made the decision destroy the Brass Gate. He stole explosives and placed them on a timer, giving him enough time to escape the compound. Unfortunately he was located by The Collectors, who by this stage had become fanatical, almost to the point of worshiping the device. Castus engaged the enemy to prevent them from deactivating the explosives and successfully destroyed the device, getting caught in the explosion in the process.

Fortunately for Castus, agents of the Ordo Xenos had been monitoring The Collectors and were able to pull him from the flames. Castus suffered massive trauma to his face, requiring extensive reconstruction. Inquisitor Sabela rewarded Castus by arranging for subdermal bionic implants to be fitted under his skin grafts. Not only would this allow Castus to recover from his injuries, but would give him the ability to alter his appearance at will.

Castus returned to duty with the Adeptus Arbites, but remained in Inquisitor Sabela's service. After five years assisting with Sabela's operations, Castus was granted the rank of Interrogator and given command of Alloy Cell.
