Ten Gun Thomas

Background

Not much is known about the man known as Ten Gun Thomas except for a few things. He was born on the world of Scintilla, in the hive city of Metallica. It is said that he was a young man from the streets, an orphan who lived a life of petty crime, scrounging and stealing simply to survive. Like all Metallicans, he grew up living by the laws of the gun, and found that he was very good at it. His marksmanship skills grew as he grew older. Eventually, his skills were noticed and an assassin simply known as Ten Gun saw his potential and took him in from the streets. Under his tutelage, he became even better until he was as good as his mentor. He continued to work for his mentor until he had grown enough street cred to get jobs on his own. He rose in rank among the assassin guilds very fast, a rising star that brought death to everyone in his path, until he was as popular and as good as his mentor.

One day, he got a job to kill a target, and that target was his mentor. He took the job, but only so that they would stop looking for another assassin for he knew that if he refused, they would kill him on the spot and just send another assassin to kill his mentor. He informed his mentor of the plot, but was too late as the best assassins have also been contacted to take him out. So both of them became a target and his mentor died at the hands of a mysterious assassin group. He went into hiding and decided to join the Officio Assassinorum on his former mentors suggestions as he was growing up.

He was accepted and with his skills and with further training, he became one of the Vindicare Assassins. However, he was different from those among his order, due to his nature as a metallican gunslinger assassin. So instead of killing his enemies at long range with the Exitus rifle, he exchanged his for 2 Exitus pistols instead. There was no law prohibiting it but traditionalists within the order frowned upon it. However his performance spoke for itself and he was given a chance to prove his skills. He did so and was highly successful, once again becoming one of the best among them. His unique style and perspective made him a valuable weapon of the inquisition. He was seconded to each and every Ordo when needed. His style was a combination of the accuracy of the Vindicare mixed with the close in lethalness of the Eversor. He also decided that he would take on the identity of Ten Gun Thomas, a freelance assassin known to the world but not known to be officially working for the Officio Assasinorum. His missions were those that any involvment with the Inquisition was never to be known and suspected.

No one exactly knows why he was sentenced to death and was found among the other radicals within Ordo Trinitatis. Only the Lord Inquisitors know of his true purpose and reasons for being there.
