*Appearance: Jacob is a menacing site to behold. His face is sunken in and skull-like, and his head is shaved bald. His muscular frame is tattooed with arcane and Chaos symbols. Jacob is never seen without his Armor while in the Screaming Vortex, and it is unlikely he would ever be seen without it unless there is a good reason. His teeth have been filed to points and his lips have been burned off to add to his skeletal appearance.
*Biography: Born on Macragge, Jacob was chosen to become an Ultramarine after his powers started to Manifest. Taken aboard one of the Inquisition’s ships, he was taken to Terra and trained to use his budding powers. After finishing his training, he travelled back to Macragge and underwent the surgeries needed to become a Space Marine. Once Jacob’s body finished adjusting to the changes, he started training to be a Librarian. Unfortunately, Chaos’ touch can be felt even on Macragge.
Jacob started hearing the whispers of the Ruinous powers in his sleep. Afraid to go to the others, he tried to fight them on his own. This proved to be his downfall and the start of his corruption. Driven mad by the whispers, Jacob turned to Chaos and fled Macragge. Folowing the whispers, he found his way into the screaming Vortex.
There, Jacob started training under a Thousand Sons Space Marine Sorcerer that had taken refuge. The training was intense and deadly, but he managed to pass it. His final test was to face off against a Word Bearer Sorcerer that had travelled into the Vortex to seek revenge for a slight that had occured before the Heresy. Winning the battle, Jacob killed the other sorcerer’s mind. Rewarded with the fallen Sorcerer’s weapons, armor and gear, he started to travel across the Vortex seeing to improve his powers.
*Power Armor Appearance: Jacob’s orange/red with white accented Power Armor appeares to be no different from any other. Spikes are strategically located across the power pack, boots at the knee, and shoulder plates. The shoulder plates have had their unit insignias painted over. The chest bares a skull in the middle with white arrows pointing to both sides. The belt bares the star of Chaos on it’s buckle, and has a loincloth hanging from it. Chains hang from it’s hips, and holds a plate carved with arcane runes onto the left boot.
*Power Armor Customization: Spikes
*Power Armor Past: Jacob’s armor has seen many millenia pass. Created months before the Horus Heresy started, it was passed to a Librarian of what would become the Word Bearer’s chapter. That Librarian became one of the first Chaos Space Marines when he made contact with the powers of Chaos. Spreading their truth across the Legion, and later to the other Legions that followed Horus, the Barer of the armor wound up passing it down through his family before Jacob killed it’s wearer and siezed it as his own.
-Why did the Heretic embrace Chaos? The Ruinous powers chose him for his psychic abilities.
-What does the Heretic desire? Arcane Might
-Whom does the Heretic Hate? The Imperium, who would have branded him a Heretic and killed him over the voices in his head.
