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, but what you know is the demons know of your scent and are coming for your head.
