Caradryad Sector Rogue Trader
You're basic crazy cat-lady. Who also happens to be a tech-priestess.
Sharae Dengir was the byproduct of human breeding and Magos Biologis gene-tampering. Magos Biologis Vesh Jornborg was a tech-priest on the Forge World of Sytelan III. Magos Vesh was both a DNA and neurologist specialist, his current experimentation was the increasing of human intelligence. His idea was to create further links within the mind itself to further increase both processing speed, memory space, and increased computing. Believing he had finally found the genome and successfully would be able to alter it, Magos Vesh had two of his finest and strongest human servants procreate for conception of the child. As the fetus grew within it’s mother, Vesh set to work doing many gene-therapies to the host-mother, as he waited impatiently for the birth of his life’s work. After 9 months of growth and gene-therapy, Sharae Dengir (as the host-mother wished the child to be called before passing away), was born.
Right away, the Magos viewed the seeds of his success. By 3 months, Sharae spoke her first words, by 6 months, she was grasping basic language and sentence structures. By year 1 and 4 months, she was using full and complete sentences. Magos Vesh decided to accelerate her learning by raising (studying) Sharae and taking her on as his accolyte, however he refused to let her out, worried that one of his rivals would steal her and his work. By age 8, she had successfully created and assembled her own personal servo-skull. By this point, Magos Vesh began implanting the marks of the tech-priest within her, some he waited until she reached her full growth. The child was obviously brilliant, as she soon was outstripping him in knowledge of machines. Wanting to have a constant feed of what she was doing, he offered to implant a Memberance Implant, which she agreed to, as long as it was well hidden. Agreeing, Vesh had the implant installed, not compromising her organic eyes nor making it obvious to anyone that it was even there. After reviewing many recordings, Vesh soon found that Sharae was capable of extreme lateral thinking, many of her solutions to problems could fall close to being tech-heresy.
By age 17, Sharae had most of her implants installed, and Magos Vesh began instructing her on the proper ways of the machine and the teachings of the Omnissiah and the Machine-God. This he found more than his fair share of frustrations as she had a harder time grasping the concepts. However after one of her very rare outside errands, Sharae arrived to the research facility followed closely by a very angry mob. Apparently she had made a few remarks about their God-Emperor that many viewed as insulting and demanded that she be handed over for immediate execution. After many hours of delegating, Magos Vesh managed to get the mob to reluctantly clear, he began to try and school her further on the teachings of the Omnissiah as well as placing more sanctions on her thus not allowing her to leave the facility ever again.
By age 22, Sharae was pronounced a full-fledged tech-priest, even if her belief of the Machine-God was considered lax at best. After her last implants installed, Magos Vesh did another scan upon her brain-wave activity. It was at this final stage he found what he called “The Flaw.” The Flaw was basically that while the gene-therapy had increased brain activity and function, it had left it severely weak and would likely sustain decay, leading to madness and insanity, which he could already see slight signs of. Deciding that his experiment was ultimately a failure and that he could not have her to continue to exist and function, he ordered the experiment terminated. The next day, Magos Vesh instructed a team of kill servitors to kill Sharae, after he deactivated her room’s security systems and any alarms.
During this time, Sharae had been connect to the facilities systems via her MIU when she began noticing the shut down of the different security systems in her room and the facility’s alarms, as well as the activation of the kill servitors. Putting the pieces together, she fled with her servo-skull before the servitors made it half-way to her chambers. Fleeing from the planet, she stow away upon a transport ship that had docked in orbit around Sytelan III for refueling and resupply before making it’s way to the Caradryad Sector. Sneaking aboard, she found that the transport was filled with exotic animals, probably to be sold to nobles as pets. In the hold that she hid in, she found it was filled with small felines. Over the course of the trip, she would kill them to eat and sustain herself. Afterwards, she would turn the animal’s skull into a servo skull for her to use at her disposal. Once the ship reached it’s destination, the hold was open and over 100 cat skulls flew out, firing stolen and modified las-pistols at the crew as Sharae made her escape, not before letting the remainder of the cats that were in the cages loose. She stole a shuttle and flew off with as many of the skulls as she could.
Upon landing on the space station docks, she met a tech-priest by the name of Cecil Krift, who, after much talk and debate, offered Sharae a position as his acolyte, deeming that she still had much to learn about the workings of machines. Hesitating, Cecil informed her that if she did not, she would be trapped on the planet with a very angry merchant as well as several hundreds of enforcers and arms-men descending on her and killing both her and her servo-skulls. Sharae reluctantly agreed, on the stipulation that she would be allowed to leave the facility for her own purposes as well as her bringing her cat servo-skulls. Cecil agreed and both left for the forge moon in the Forlorn system.
