Fate: 3 [3]

Wounds: 10


  • Ballistic Skill, Agility, Willpower, Fellowship
  • Defence, Psyker, Finesse, Social


  • Survivor's Paranoia:A garden world character halves the duration (rounded up) of any result from Table 8–11: Shock or Table 8–13: Mental Traumas, and can remove Insanity points for 50xp per point rather than the normal 100xp.
  • The Constant Threat: When the character or an ally within 10 metres triggers a roll on Table 6–2: Psychic Phenomenon, the Adeptus Astra Telepathica character can increase or decrease the result by amount equal to his Willpower bonus.
  • Sanctioned: The emperor loves him or something like that.
  • Move & Shoot: Once per round, after performing a Move action, you may perform a single Standard Attack with a Pistol weapon you are currently wielding as a Free Action.
  • Psyker: Allows the character to purchase the Psyniscience skill and psychic powers.
  • Soul Bound: A soul bound psyker rolls an extra die when forced to roll on Table 6–3: Perils of the Warp then replaces either the ones die or the tens die with the extra die he rolled to determine the final result. The character has lost their eye sight.
  • Unnatural Senses (100): The creature can perceive its surroundings using senses other than sight or hearing. The range in metres is indicated by the number in parentheses.
  • Psy Rating: Seven.

Known: Acrobatics, Charm, Common Lore (Telepathica), Forbidden Lore (Inquisition, Warp), Interrogation,
+10: Deceive, Inquiry, Psyniscience (Awareness)
+20: Stealth
+30: Dodge


  • Weapon Training: Bolt, Las, Low-Tech, SP, Melta
  • Exotic Weapon Training: Pulse, Quill
  • Quick Draw: As a Free Action, the character may draw and ready a Pistol or Basic weapon, or a one-handed Melee weapon.
  • Mighty Shot: Add half your BS Bonus to ranged damage.
  • Second Sight: The value of the Astropath’s Unnatural Senses trait increases to twice his Willpower characteristic.
  • Warp Awareness: The Astropath may use his Psyniscience skill in place of his Awareness skill for Awareness tests.
  • Ambidextrous: This talent does not represent true ambidexterity so much as sufficient training with both hands to make the distinction moot.
  • Double Tap:When making a second ranged attack action in the same turn against the same target, he gains a +20 bonus to the attack test if his first attack scored one or more successful hits.
  • Jaded: The Acolyte’s wide travels have shown him both wonders and horrors beyond the ken of most. The galaxy has thrown its worst at him and he has yet to flinch. Mundane events, from death’s horrific visage to xenos abominations, do not force him to gain Insanity points or make Fear tests. Daemons, Warp manifestations, and other unnatural effects still affect him normally.
  • Marksman: Suffers no penalties for making Ballistic Skill tests at Long or Extreme range.
  • Rapid Reload: Halve all reload times, rounding down.
  • Resistance (Psychic Powers, Fear): +10 to relevant tests.
  • Strong Minded: Can re-roll failed Willpower tests to resist any psychic powers that affect his mind.
  • Step Aside: Can make an additional Evasion attempt (either a Dodge or a Parry) once per round. Can still only attempt a single Dodge or Parry against each individual attack.
  • Target Selection: He can shoot into melee with no penalty. If he also makes an Aim action beforehand, he prevents any chance of hitting friendly targets as well.
  • Two Weapon Wielder (Ranged): When armed with two one-handed weapons, after making a Half Action attack (this can be a Single Attack, a Swift Attack, or a Lightning Attack with a melee weapon, or it can be a single shot, semi-auto burst, or full auto burst with a ranged weapon), he can make a single additional Half Action attack following the same restrictions with the other weapon as a Free Action. In effect, this allows him to attack twice in a round, once from each of his weapons. Both of these attacks count as being part of the same Half Action, and both tests made to attack with the weapons suffer a –20 penalty.
  • Two Weapon Master: When armed with two single-handed weapons (such as a pistol or sword in either hand), he ignores the –20 penalty for Two-Weapon Fighting.
  • Warp Sense: The character can use the Psyniscience Skill as a Free Action instead of as a Half Action. He can also passively detect psychic effects and entities without the need to actively seek them out.
  • Warp Lock: Once per game session, he may ignore the Psychic Phenomena he has rolled (including Perils), completely negating its effects. Such rapid dislocation from the Warp, though, is stressful and traumatic to his mind. Suffer 1d5 Energy damage to the Head location (not reduced by Armour or Toughness) as a result, and cannot make any Focus Power tests or sustain other psychic powers until the beginning of his next turn.
  • Clues from Crowds: Once per day, he can re-roll a test made to gather information from a group of people.
  • Adamantium Faith: He can subtract his Willpower bonus from his degrees of failure on a failed Fear or Pinning test. If this reduces the result to zero or less, he counts as having passed the test with 1 degree of success.
  • Hard Target: When you perform a Charge or Run action opponents suffer a –20 penalty to Ballistic Skill tests made to hit with ranged attacks.
  • Cat Fall: Reduce fall distance by AB in metres (Min 0). Add +20 to Acrobatics when using the Jump special skill use.
  • Leap Up: Can stand up as a Free Action.
  • Death Dealer: Add Per Rating to criticals.
  • Paranoia: +2 to Initiative.
  • Independent Targeting: When firing two weapons as part of a single action, the character does not need his targets to be within 10 metres of each other.

Psychic Powers

Flaw: "Judged and found Worthy" Whether it be physically witnessing the Emperor's divine presence or some other moment of faith Gavriel knows that he does the Emperor's divine work. He will sacrifice whatever is needed to achieve the mission at hand and truly believes in the Inquisition's role as the guiding hand of the Emperor.

Gavriel is fully aware that he should be another redacted name on a scroll of service, that the service he gave the Inquisition in no way makes up the murder of the loyal throne agents sent to claim him. His stay of execution is whispered to be due to his survival following the harrowing of astropathy, but only Inquisitor Grendel knows why he continues to serve as a throne agent and instead of a choir singing in the voids of space. Gavriel deals with the steely glares and cold shoulders of the other acolytes who know his past without any remorse, sure that their sacrifice was required in him being where he is today.
