Seven Saints of Talis
Sammael is a Champion of Tzeentch, the enigmatic Chaos God of magic, history, intrigue, dreams, ideals and plots. Where or when he was born is unknown, for the Architect of Fate has moved him through many points of space and time at a whim, all in pursuit of unknown and unknowable plots and plans. He is a potent psyker and powerful sorcerer, known to have caused the destruction of entire worlds
What is known is that, in the current era of M42, Sammael possesses two familial relationships. The first is a twin brother, Revan, also a powerful Psyker, and a member of the Ordos of the Holy Inquisition of the Imperium of Man. As can be imagined, there is no love lost between the two, and each is dedicated to the utter destruction of the other. Sammael’s other family member is his daughter, Ariasai, who once served in the retinue of Revan, and later his apprentice Exanami Sun, but fell in battle and was captured by the Traitor Marines of the Thousand Sons Legion and brought before the heretic sorcerer. By what fell powers and unholy bargains he restored her flesh and her life, none can say, though she is now sworn to the Ruinous Powers herself, reveling in her new-found life as a devotee of Slaanesh, the Prince of Pleasure. Imperial records indicate that Ariasai is between 16 and 20 years of age, sidereal, and may have been born in Gunmetal Hive in the Calixis Sector, which is corroborated by scattered sightings of Sammael in the sub-sector over the thirty years prior.
