Blackened Streets & Darkened Skies: Dark Heresy
- Born and raised on the Frontier World of Mosul Daren Cross would be drafted into the Imperial Guard along with a thousand of his fellow men from Mosul as the 7th Line Breaker Guard. The ‘Breakers’ were a fast moving but heavy armed and armored unit used to storm enemy lines and defenses.
- Daren served a full 30 year tour of duty seeing fighting on many planets of the Markayn Marches Subsector, like in the war torn system of Gelmiro, and on the Death world of Karrik. After his tour he took a ‘soft post’ as an Inquisition Guardsman on the Hive Planet of Cantus.
- Daren came to Inquisitator Lady Esailla and Caine’s attention while serving as an Inquisition Guardsman when his team got caught up in an ambush assassination attempt on the Lady Esailla and he was the only one left standing from his team by the end of the attack that even had Lady Esailla needing medical attention. Caine offered Daren a position on his team and Daren accepted seeing it as just another tour with better scenery that his first two.
