Born nearly fifty years ago on a little-known Mechanicus research outpost, Kaban Q-9 was inducted into the Adeptus Mechanicus at an early age. He spent most of his life aboard the research outpost, Skyllian 0091, until an Inquisition vessel recruited him as a replacement for one of their tech-priests who had perished in void combat. Inducted into the service of the Inquisition, Kaban Q-9 hopes for nothing more than to stamp out tech-heresy wherever he finds it. His demeanor is generally cold, but unlike the more senior members of the Mechanicus, he still has much of his humanity and tries to relate to those who don't follow the Omnissiah as best as he can.

When the Inquisition arrived at Skyllian 0091, they requested a single adept from the Mechanicus. As Kaban Q-9 was of fairly low rank and was considered expendable, he was the one chosen. Now, he is determined to prove his superiors incorrect and seeks to gain standing and prestige within the Adeptus Mechanicus to prove his worth.


Kaban Q-9 has, like many tech-priests from Skyllian 0091, a gaunt, almost emaciated build. However, it can sometimes be difficult to notice this, as he typically wears his rust red Mechanicus robes over his flak armor, disguising his build somewhat. Unusual for a tech-priest, he has left his hair long, and it can be seen hanging limply on the rare occasions he removes his hood. He has a slight bit of a stoop, as a result of the implants attached to his spine and lower body, making him look slightly older than his 40 standard years.
