Name:Zso Sahaal

Contact Details:
"He who fights with monsters should be careful lest he thereby become a monster. And if thou gaze long into an abyss, the abyss will also gaze into thee."
-Friedrich Nietzsche

"There is no such thing as paranoia. Your worst fears can come true at any moment."
- Hunter S. Thompson

"When our actions do not, our fears make us traitors."
— William Shakespeare
Name - First Captain Zso Sahaal, VIII Legion Astartes (The Talonmaster)

Universe - Warhammer 40,000

Appearance - Sahaal is a Night Lord, which means very pale skin and black, photosensitive eyes. As well as this, he is a Space Marine, so he's about seven foot tall and very muscular, much more so than any mortal man. His scalp was shaven when he first arrived at Milliways, but due to lack of interest in his personal appearance, lank black hair now falls to his shoulders. Due to his photosensitive eyes, he wears thick tinted goggles when not in his power armour. His usual Milliways outfit consists of a dark blue tunic and a pair of baggy black cargo trousers with oversized army boots. Any exposed skin is likely crisscrossed with scars, both old and new.

Bio - Sahaal hails from the Warhammer 40,000 universe, and was the First Captain of the Night Lords Legion until he was lost in the Warp and spat out ten millennia into the future. After he was exiled by the remnant of his Legion for attempting to usurp command using a relic of his father, he accidentally found himself in Milliways whilst on the run. He isn't technically bound to Milliways, but he is of the firm opinion that no one wants him in his home universe, and has so far refused to even try to go back. He's been there for about three months, and has spent most of that time tucked away in a dark corner of the bar, drowning his sorrows alone, or in his room. Very few patrons know he's actually there, and it would come as a shock to most that he even exists.

Important Notes -

- Never call him Zso, he doesn't really like it. He prefers Sahaal, or Captain.

- His preference in combat is to go in with close combat weaponry​, like his lightning claws, but as a Space Marine, he can easily fight from range. He just doesn't like it.

- Don't expect great social skills from him, a lifetime as a warrior has left him with little idea of what to do in a social situation.

- As a Night Lord, he's well-versed in psychological warfare, and would jump at the chance to use it. It's also one of the few topics he would willingly talk at length about to others.

- Since he's from a universe created by a British company and was himself​ created by a British author, he speaks in an upper-class British accent. For a good reference point, think Loki from the MCU.

- Right now, he's in a very fragile emotional state, and since no one wants a massacre, he should not be canon-punctured. At all.
Zso Sahaal is from the Warhammer 40,000 novel Lord of the Night, and is the property of Games Workshop and Simon Spurrier. He appears here solely for the purpose of role-playing in [community profile] milliways_bar, from which no profit whatsoever is being made. It should also be noted that this is my interpretation of the character, and is presented as I believe he would be after the events alluded to in the novel Soul Hunter, by Aaron Dembski-Bowden. The incidents in that novel are his property and that of Black Library Publishing.
