Imperial Missionary by Koshindou Imperial Missionary by Koshindou
"You see these scars, heathen? They are proof of the Emperor's protection, of his mercy and his love! Dare you deny him, and force me to reveal to you that same touch, when roused in hate!?"

Subtelty is not common in the Imperial dogma.

I drew this character because I just needed to get her out of my mind and on paper, so that I could move on to other characters (more valid ones) that needed to be sketched out. I was asked to come up with a character for a potential Rogue Trader RPG (which I'm kinda picturing as Pirates of Dark Water in The Future while In Space) and came up with a deranged Imperial Missionary. Sadly, I was later informed that it was expected that I would play the Rogue Trader himself, so I came up with a new concept and moved on (figuring that my fellow players would not appreciate a leader whose solution to every situation was "if it can be set on fire, it's not a real problem").

I still like this character, though.

Edit: Holy cow - check out this wonderful coloring work Aegresen did! [link]

Wow her scars are nasty, just noticed her left arm is completely charred, too.
Did a barrel full of promethium explode to her left?

If I remember her backstory correctly her blessed scars resulted from holding a heretic in a fire with that arm in a moment of piety. :)
