Sarvus Xanatov could have led a life of untold license and leisure, wasting away indolently amid the upspire palaces. Could have, but didn’t. Certainly not indolently, anyway. He was born the fifth son of a fifth son, with no hope of inheriting anything other than a ceremonial position in the family trade and virtually no prospects for inheritance.

Sarvus was a… different sort, when compared with his siblings. Where they learned first to trade and second only the barest minimum of martial skill necessary for a hive noble, Sarvus learned the blade. Though he could not entirely skip his other lessons, he was fighting in illicit pit fights and dueling circles as soon as he was able. When the excitement of staged fights faded, he took to traveling far and wide to hunt ever more dangerous life forms, on occasion leading hunting parties of other nobles. When even that thrill faded, he led some of those same nobles down hive in a hunt for the most dangerous prey.

Such activities did not go unnoticed, and Sarvus found himself invited to participate in a fighting ring secretive even by the standards of such activities. The extra secrecy was not unwarranted, as Sarvus found out. This particular organization was home to a cult of the dark gods, which Sarvus dutifully reported to the local Arbites. Sarvus played a key role as an undercover informant in the ensuing investigation and continued in the capacity when the Inquisition was brought on board.

Though he was declared free of taint upon the conclusion of the investigation, the politically expedient thing for Sarvus to do was disappear for a while. The continuing voyages of the starship Omen of Majesty, belonging to the allied house of Karakan, provided a suitable means of doing so. Life in Imperial space was getting boring anyway.
