When Tanith's parents disappeared without a trace when she was a child, she was packed off as would be usual to the schola progenium. It was here that she grew up and it was pretty much the only life she knew. Keen, confident and a bit of a bully, she was an easy choice for commissar training and she was delighted to be selected. Tanith worked hard at the schola, graduating amongst the top of her class. She then spent a few years serving with the Imperial Guard as a commissar cadet, again working hard to earn her full commission.

Eventually she was indeed awarded with the sash and rank, and she eagerly awaited news of which regiment she would be posted with. As such, it was to her utter dismay that she learned that instead of being posted to a regiment, she had been selected for 'Special Assignment', which turned out to be with Inquisitor Kaede. To date, she doesn't know if she was personally chosen, or if she was just assigned at random by the Commissariat. Either way, she is pretty disgruntled, feeling that her chance at glory as a commissar had been stolen from her.

Nonetheless, she is a loyal Imperial and an utter professional. Whilst she may complain about the duty she has been assigned to, she still makes sure to carry out the duty to the best of her ability, perhaps ultimately in the hope of proving herself well enough to return to the commissar life that she wanted.


She is a woman of average height and immaculate appearance and appears to be in her early 20's. She has cropped blond hair which either hangs neatly loose or is tied up in a tight bun, depending on her mood and the day's activities. Her commissar uniform is pressed to perfection and her sash tied perfectly.
