    Tristan was raised on a world whose primary purpose was to defend against the machinations of the Tau. He learned to field strip a lasgun before he could walk, and his first language was the local war cant. During training, a natural affinity for leading his fellows was noted, causing him to be transferred into the command class. Following graduation, he served honourably in the PDF, and begin rising in the ranks. When the chance finally arrived to serve the Emperor in battle, the entire population held a week long celebration, culminating in a lottery of all eligible citizens. Tristan was one of the lucky few chosen for the new regiment, and took the well wishes of his friends and family with him along with a commission as a Captain. He served gloriously, and would happily have continued to do so to the end of his days, until his regiment was hit by a chemical attack after making camp. Their respirators were useless, the chemical eating through the rubber, the skin on their faces, and their lungs. To make matters, worse, the command tent took a direct hit during a meeting of senior personnel, while Captain Sawyer was checking the picket lines. Those the attack did not kill outright were left with lungs were scarred beyond repair, and Tristan, now the most senior officer, found himself in charge of a regiment that had been written off as casualties. Facing an future of begging and with no way off the war torn world on which they were located, or an unofficial the God Emperor offered them a blessing in the form of a Rogue Trader vessel that had recently arrived and had openings for military trained personnel. The soldiers' scarred lungs were replaced with bionics, and new roles were found for them shipboard. Tristan and the other survivors had found a new purpose, and new battles to fight.
