Background Edit

  • Region: The Imperium (+2 to Diplomacy)

Tarkus was a great orator, able to fire up the crowds with his impassioned sermons. Although not a great warrior personally, he burned with a zeal to carry Juna's standards to war, and his leadership and tactical skills led him to raise high in the ranks of the Imperial army. He led several crusades to bring the Imperial religion to far off lands, and to put down rebellious provinces, becoming known as Tarkus the Crusader.

For his greatest crusade, he persuaded the leaders of the church that he could bring peace to Ea by leading an Imperial Legion to conquer githzerai and githyanki alike and bring them into the Imperium. This plan was controversial and incited arguments in the streets, as Tarkus and the church leaders presented it as a noble and just crusade to aid the innocents who were dying in the war, while others thought that it was nothing but a war of conquest, while still others merely thought it was insane.

As many expected, Tarkus' crusade ended in disaster as the warring factions temporarily united, slaughtered his legions, and then went right back to fighting. He was recalled from Ea in disgrace and called before the high priests. He was stripped of his rank and position in the Church hierarchy, and told to enter a period of fasting to reflect upon his failure. While in contemplation, he received a vision from Juna herself.

The Goddess told him that he had been perverting Her message. His crusades were not just - they were prompted by his own bellicose nature and lust for glory, not by Juna's will. Juna told Tarkus that to truly serve, he must learn the way of peace, not war. The Goddess laid a curse on him, that until his heart became pure, every act of violence he committed would rebound on him. Then she charged him to leave the Imperium and wander the earth, helping others without resorting to violence, until how to serve her peacefully.

Appearance and personality Edit

  • Age: 24
  • Gender: Male
  • Height: 6'1"
  • Weight: 180 lb.
  • Alignment: Good

Tarkus is tall and fit, with a hawklike face, close cropped blond hair, and the bearing of a soldier. He wears burnished chain mail and a tabard bearing the Scales of Justice symbol of Juna. His Holy Symbol, a smaller set of scales, hangs from a chain wrapped around his left wrist.

He is arrogant, vain and quick to anger, but truly committed to the cause of justice, and was shocked to discover that smiting what he saw as evildoers was not the way to achieve it.
