Harkon

Harkon.png
Warrior from Mundus, sworn to serve Callidon. During his time in the Magical City of Teham Harkon honed his skills, and was gifted for his service weapons from the vaults of the Sinods of the city. When Callidon left Teham Harkon went with him, and his loyalty since has only grown. They share a belief in the ends justifying the means, and a cold hard pragmatism.

Eolas Callidon was born on the shrine-world of Denane IV at the very edge of the Segmentum Obscurus. He was only 12 standard Terran years old when his home planet was lost. A splinter fleet of the Tyranid Hive Fleet Moloch attacked the system and all but obliterated the Denane PDF forces in a single week. Callidon witnessed this massacre from his family estate, watching the ceaseless hunger of the Tyranid horde consume his homeland.
When his parents were enlisted to join a makeshift fraternis militia Eolas was evacuated to the Governor's Palace, where he met an already ancient Inquisitor Toland. Toland was a legend among the Ordo Xenos, and had travelled from the Calyxis sector to study the advance of the Tyranid fleet first-hand. Callidon served as a clerk for Inquisitor Toland, assisting him in all manner of tasks. Eventually the Denane system was overrun, and Toland ordered a full exterminatus on the five inhabited worlds in the system. The representatives of the Ecclesiarchy were enraged, the shrine worlds of Denane named after Saint Denane the Fertile and holding many relics of his life, but the assembled fleet destroyed the worlds one by one on Inquisitor Toland's orders. Callidon saw that day a fire that would match the endless hunger of the Xenos horde, and the extreme lengths to which one must go to combat the enemies of the Imperium.

When Toland left the system he took Callidon with him, and raised the boy as if his own son. Learning Xenos breeds and the nature of the daemonic where other children learned their hymns, Callidon was soon drawn into the politics and life of an Inquisitorial agent. When he came of age he began to serve in Inquisitor Toland's warband as an adept, assisting in the extermination of the Ork-born tribes of the Kapil moons and the seizure of Eldar artefacts sold by the nobility of the system capital Scintilla. Callidon's calling was never war, but he watched the Inquisitor's warband and learned all he could about the ways of the Inquisition. Eventually Callidon's psychic abilities began to manifest, and promoting him to the rank of Interrogator Toland sent him off to be sanctioned. This would be the last time the pair met. Toland, considered a radical by many in the Inquisition, was not without his enemies. His focus was on combating the Xenos threat, and his research had wandered into areas considered unsavoury by many. A witch-hunter by the name of Haephus tracked Toland across the sector, thwarting his investigations and destroying his research. Eventually Haephus caught up with Toland, and slew the aged Inquisitor in the name of the Ecclesiarchy.

Almost a sector away Callidon received a package from his mentor. It contained an Inquisitorial rosette, Toland's own ancient inferno pistol 'Purifier' and a journal reciting Toland's final days before facing Haephus. Sure of his demise, Inquisitor Toland had risen his pupil to the rank of Inquisitor so he might further his own research. Although lacking in many of the normal expectations for an Inquisitor, Toland knew Callidon possessed a natural will and had ascended him to the rank of Inquisitor just before his death. In his final words he tasked the now Inquisitor Callidon with continuing his research, and finding a way of combating the Xenos threat, no matter the cost. Although most of his old master's allies had been killed in the purge that took his own life Callidon rejoined the company of one of his bio-augmented assassins. The two travelled for a time, searching for research and anyone involved in the murder of their master. Despite the methods he was employing Callidon knew his heart was pure, and that it fell to him to find the power necessary to fight the enemies of the Imperium in all their forms.


Callidon and his ally tracked the progress of an Adeptus Arbites judge for many weeks, knowing he was an active member of the warband of Witchhunter Haephus. He was travelling aboard the prison transport ship Atrium Summi, and Callidon put plans in motion to end his life. They infiltrated the prison ship, getting themselves arrested under false names in an attempt to get closer to Justice Kiefel. They intended to kill the Judge and escape the ship to help avenge their own master.

When aboard Callidon managed to kill the Justice, but found himself cast into the warp in the process. Within he was consumed by an entity that spoke directly into his soul. It offered him a way out. The destruction of the Atrium Summi at the cost of an unnamed future favour. Callidon negotiated with the entity, agreeing to do a single task within a year and a day of being called upon. The gift was granted, with the price to be paid at a later date…


When the Wolves crash landed on the world later called "Mundus", Callidon was intent on making his impact on the world the least he possibly could. When the others became warriors serving the Dreadlord of Castle Jordie Callidon found himself alone, and hired the services of a local sellsword Harkon. The pair travelled far north to the Magical City of Teham, passing through the wards and apprenticing himself to Eklios the Skinless, one of the 11 Lords of the city. Eventually Callidon learned all that Eklios had to teach, and killed him with a misplaced ritual circle. Assuming his place as one of the 11 Sinod's, Callidon settled in to rise up through the ranks of the city and take all the knowledge he could from these heretics. His first task was to find the name of a Daemon of light, worshipped throughout Mundus. Callidon summoned the daemon, and using its true name informed it that he was its new master, before banishing it back into the warp. When he had taken all the knowledge he could from the city he left, destroying it by violating the wards of the Sinod. Making a deal with the nearby Shadow Knight he was allowed access to forbidden lore, and set off to travel Mundus once more in search of enlightenment.
