The Omen of Majesty: Tales of the Karakan Dynasty
Sebastion Xan'Tai - Navigator of the Dark
I HAVE AN EYE MADE OF WARP IN MY FO’HEAD RAR
Long ago, the Navigator house Xan’Tai utterly foreswore their planetary holdings, choosing instead to travel in the spaces between stars. They became nomads, though with fleets of starships plying the void, and the Warp – calling both their home.
They did so, according to the elders, due to wanting to never lose sight of why the Navigators are what they are – born to travel and explore, to map the unknown spaces for the Emperor, and see what few others have seen.
Though most of the house Xan’Tai are, generations later, uncomfortable even being on a planet now, they feel completely at home within the spaces of a ship – perhaps more than most.
It is for this reason that Sebastion’s travails in his earlier years would be hair-raising and even frightening for most, but for a Navigator of the House Xan’Tai, nearly par for the course – though with some variations. Nonetheless, his experiences have shaped both him and his outlook on the galaxy, as he views it through sensor logs and ship’s portholes with satisfaction.
He now seeks to travel in the dark places between stars, exploring and learning for knowledge’s sake for the Emperor, as is his birthright – seeking to do full justice to the ethos by which his House operates.
