Kill Team Alpha
Kill Team Alpha
Sworn to the Deathwatch by their Chapters, these six were notable among Space Marines before their adventures in the Jericho Reach ever began. After arriving at Watch Fortress Erioch, the six disparate space-marines fully expected to be distributed among the already purposed teams of elite warriors among the Deathwatch. Watch Captain Azyrus however, noted a strangeness about the group he liked… and now they are known as Kill Team Alpha, being the first Kill Team assigned by the Deathwatch to drive off the Tau besieging the planet Oertha. Whatever it was that Azyrus foresaw seems to be coming to pass, as these six Space Marines have formed a strangely effective killing machine.
Marcus is a Nova Marine to whom the Deathwatch assigned the Devastator Specialty, and is portayed by Brandon Bell. Jaw-droppingly effective at whole-sale slaughter with his handy Heavy Bolter, Marcus is a blood-splattered exterminatus made manifest when he plants his feet and raises the barrel of his seemingly ever-smoking gun.
Veren is an Imperial Fist to whom the Deathwatch assigned the Tech-Marine Specialty, and is portayed by Eric. Veren has survived the worst the tau have thrown out and done it with style, to the point of using his servo-arm to dismember a Tau mastermind when his weapons were taken from him. Never underestimate a man who strikes fear into his enemies with a claw.
Rafen is a Blood Angel to whom the Deathwatch assigned the Assault Marine Specialty, and is portayed by Crystal. Xenos tell stories of Rafen to scare their children. He is the unstoppable bogeyman of the Tau whose jetpack and chainsword seem to howl and whine for their blood. His warcry is silence rent asunder by the sound of stomping mag-boots, of tearing metal and of screaming demons. He is the Emperor’s Angel of Death.
Wilhelm is a Black Templar with the Apothecary Specialty sent to the Deathwatch assigned to keep his Kill Team alive. This proven savior of the Kill Team is portayed by Buddy, and has leapt in front of tank-buster missiles and lived to perform surgery on his less wounded brothers before tending himself. This charitable soul lends his medical expertise to the Xenos as well, doing surgeries on them with his chainsword.
Camerone is a Storm Warden to whom the Deathwatch assigned the Tactical Marine Specialty, and is portayed by Danielle. A sharpshooter whose daring actions have seen the destruction of many windshields, Camerone is the sole reason the Air Caste Pilots duck their heads so low when they land their ships now.
Logan is a Space Wolf to whom the Deathwatch assigned the Librarian Specialty, and is portayed by Patrick. Logan has yet to use his psychic powers…
