The Durksimus Dynasty
Lord Khalid Durksimus al-Diin
The rightful patriarch of the Durksimus Family, and captain of Guilliman's Herald
6 feet 5 inches tall, in his classic familial robes. Mildly slender build, with a scar on his chin and a devilish grin on his face.
In 371.M41, Muhammad Abdullah Durksimus died and the successor, Khalid, was young and the Keksimus family protested. During the Coronation ceremony, the Keksimus ambsuhed the Durksimus and only Khalid and his brother escaped, fleeing the uprising in the Guilliman’s Herald and after escaping in the Light Cruiser Eternal Endeavor, plotted their revenge. The Keksimus dynasty, with great fortune but little renown to the new name, sold off much of the assets of the Durksimus Dynasty to build a massive armada and armies, to win renown by claiming an entirely new sector of Space in the Emperor’s name. The result was disastrous, Orkz and Chaos warlords destroyed the fleet and the colonies they founded demolishing the family’s wealth. The Durksimus were forgotten as a dynasty usurped, and the Keksimus won no renown for themselves.
In 495.M41, as the Guilliman’s Herald limped into port for recrew and repairs from the disastrous enterprise, the Durksimus brothers ambushed the ship and drove the Keksimus off the family’s heirloom. Upon reclaiming the ship, dynasty and remaining wealth however, they found that the Keksimus had made off with a treasure of no less value than the warrant or the Herald, the Zulfiqar, the blade of the Durksimus dynasty – given to them, according to legend, by the Primarch of old. Shortly thereafter, Ali Ibn Durksimus and the Eternal Endeavor set off on their own to chase down the Keksimus Dynasty and the Zalfiqar.
