A most traditional clusterfuck. In space. Someone wanted to mention war, too.
(CG1) Casimir Belgarath

The only son and heir to the Belgarath family, a family with a rich tradition of Imperial Navy and Army officers that can trace their heritage to the beginnings of the Imperium on Holy Terra itself, Casimir was orphaned at a young age when the Navy Battleship, the Hope of Scintilla crewed by his parents was dragged into a deadly crash with the vessel Unbreakable Will by the heretic Magos[REDACTED] using [REDACTED]. Casimir’s grandparents inducted him into a scholam run by clerics and navy veterans geared towards Navy training and the arts of war. His scholam records show his aptitude for void tactics and strategy, logistics and the politics of war and a sterling academic discipline. His record also shows minor reports of violence with others at the scholam but nothing unexpected from a child in his situation.
Casimir Belgarath was assigned to the Emperor’s Light upon completion of his training and quickly rose to the position of Commander through numerous campaigns of pacification against the Tin Emperor zealots in the Vilentius sector, a very subtle desecration of the Imperial Truth was being preached on dozens of worlds and apostates quickly overthrew legitimate Imperial authority, leading Casimir to become a renowned commander during many boarding actions and battles with the Tin Emperor’s fleets. He was awarded captainship of the Emperor’s Light after the disappearance of Arctus Zek at the end of the campaign and was presented a power blade by the Lord Governor of Lusetia IV after its liberation and the destruction of the Tin Emperor cult.
“It was an easy thing, to slide the injector into Zek’s neck. It was like I was told, a quick jab of soporific and a drag somewhere private during the tail end of the planetary attack and no one would be the wiser. The pink fluid seemed to glow from underneath his skin and pulse like the drug-dreams that have shown my destiny foretold. In three minutes, Arctus Zek would be dead. In three minutes, my destiny, and a loyal bodyguard, would be reborn. His face sloughed and changed, his body twisted and thickened and his breath steadied as I carried him to my good mechanical friend. He would show this cur the perfection of the machine, and in the meantime, I would rise. I would throw off the shackles of the False Emperor. The lies of one creed were shown through the deeper lies of another. I will be free of Emperors, whether Tin or Terran, and be free to pursue the perfection I have seen.
Through the dark and incense I draw breath.
Through pink-misted eyes I see.
Through icy skin and flaming bone I feel.
Through the Flawless Prince I am reborn."
