Bio:

The Regulator pattern Boltgun, codenamed “Death’s Call”, was a prototype weapon developed on a private forge world of the Fallaset dynasty. It’s purpose was simple: A cheap and lightweight Boltgun for use by Fallaset security personal and soldiers. The weapon exceeded expectations in every way; it was lighter and easier to handle then the Astartes or common Imperial variants without loosing any firepower; it had full support for all standard ammunition and clip types; as well two feeds for special ammunition where advanced sensors would normally be placed in a common Boltgun pattern. This sensors where replaced with a quick-swap scope/sight system on top of the weapon, so it could be easily modified for the task at hand.

As the weapon was preparing mass production, word got out of it’s success and Rogue Trader Dynasty’s started to worry about the tip of power that would come from such a weapon in the hands of a rival. Thale was hired by once such house to obtain the weapon and to return it for reverse engineering. The job was completed without a hitch, but the Dynasty responsible for the contract decided that his survival was too much of a risk and tried to have him killed. Thale easily out maneuvered his attackers and kept the weapon for himself, and from that day forward he has survived numerous attempts on his life for the potential power he holds.
