Born a good Imperial citizen, Taylonus Grigorian is one of the most charming murderers you are likely to meet.
Don’t take that the wrong way.
Originally an Enforcer, Tai developed a talent for working the streets and earned promotion to the undercover branch of his unit. His skills grew as he infiltrated gangs and minor cults until he was the best in the whole organisation - though he would never tell you that, and nobody outside ranking officers knew his name.
Assigned to infiltrate the House of Blades, a death cult that his superiors had some concerns about, Tai found them to be absolute in their faith in the Emperor. His superiors kept pushing the matter, though, until he became suspicious and did some digging of his own. It didn't take much for him to find out that there was corruption at the highest ranks of his organisation, officers reaching invisibly across the planet to subtly quash the most unshakeable adherence to the God-Emperor. Outraged, he put the skills he'd learned during his time with the cult to use, and unilaterally executed every one of the heretic dogs, leaving behind only the note, "The Emperor reaps what heresy sows." Then he disappeared into the House of Blades, the only people who had known that he was undercover lying dead in their offices.
At some point he began to truly believe in the death cult's deeper philosophies of blood sacrifice to the Emperor. Or perhaps he was so deep undercover, and for so long, that he tricked even himself - which is what he will tell you, if asked. Either way, his assimilation into the cult became complete and he eventually became its most skilled death-adept.
The Inquisition found him, of course, after the file on the murder of the Enforcer officers triggered certain flags and they came investigating. Understanding the full story, the Inquisitional agents revealed themselves to him and offered him a job, which he enthusiastically accepted.
Tai, codename "Reaver", seems to have two personalities: the easygoing smartmouth seen on so many street gangers, and the totally focused professional killer. Whether either of them is his original nature, he can't remember.
