Space Marine[edit]

A space marine is a futuristic warrior from a time most distant. Often they are regarded as highly skilled with few who match them in battle. However, most space marines have had some encounter with demonic forces in their lifetime. Sometimes it is a brush with fiendish Imp and other times it's diving knee deep into the very pit of where all demon spawn come from, to slay them or die at their hands. You are one such warrior who has survived your encounters. How you are here is unclear. All you know is that you awoke in this strange new land, in a strange new form. You thought it might be a dream, but the seal on you says otherwise as it burns you like it always does. You may not have your technology from the future such as Power Armor or a BFG, but you'll make do with swords and magic. Who knows? Maybe you'll find a way out of this place? Or maybe you don't want to leave? We'll see.

Skill Proficiencies: Acrobatics and Intimidation

Tool Proficiencies: Navigator's Tools

Languages: Abyssal

Equipment: A picture you drew of your loved one and a set of common clothes

Feature: The seal of the Doom Slayer[edit]

When you made contact with the demonic forces, you got a quick taste of what they think of you. You were branded with the Seal of the Doom Slayer, an ancient prophecy of someone who would slay the very lords of the demon world. You might hate the sight of it, but you have noticed the seal comes in handy. When you show someone the seal, they may come to respect you out of fear. As an offering they may give you information, food, or supplies, but won't want to remain in your presence, as they fear you may bring misery to their lives.

Suggested Characteristics[edit]

Your connection to the demonic has made you who you are now. Be it someone seeking to simply do some good in this cruel world or keep fighting because they love to rip and tear.
