Rogue Trader: Into the Dark Void
Career Path: Psyker (Unsanctioned)
Quote: “Do you know what punishments I’ve endured for my crimes, my sins? None. I am proof of the absurdity of men’s most treasured abstractions. A just universe wouldn’t tolerate my existence.”
Lady Ash is a silent, pale skinned psyker whose origins and homeworld are known only to her previous employer, Hadarak Fel. Her devotion to Hadarak was without question; a devotion that ultimately was sadly one-sided. Hadarak used her as a favored instrument of his will against both his enemies and allies. However, he only valued her life as long as it was of use to him, and when that usefulness came to an end, he discarded her as he would have done with any other possession. For good or ill, Lucius Vorgen decided not to execute Lady Ash; indeed, he eventually offered her employment aboard the Emperor’s Bounty. For the first time in her life Lady Ash has a say in her own existence. Sadly, that same freedom has caused her to deeply doubt her own self-worth.
Lady Ash is a rogue psyker (most would say witch) who has never been bonded or marked by Imperial authorities. However, where most rogue psykers exhibit crude, shaky control over their own power, Lady Ash has evidently been through some kind of formal training, though she never speaks of it. Whatever doubts Lady Ash may have about her own value, she is utterly fearless, and is probably the most powerful and skilled psyker currently in the employ of the Vorgen dynasty. Lady Ash has incredible telekinetic potential as well as an uncanny ability to impose her will upon both beasts and the weak-minded. She is seldom encountered without her psyber-raven Pyrexia. This dark-feathered shadow is a potent tool in the hands of such a skilled psyker.
