Renowned Warrant


He was the son and heir to admirals in the battlefleet. Let other traders talk about their noble dynasties. The Karlsen name was no less prestigious, no less renowned. They had served the empire for millennia; if family legend was to be believed, as far back as the Horus Heresy. Growing up in the fleet, the son of Admiral Magnus Karlsen, he was trained for command. His father hoped that someday he too would be an admiral; command a fleet of his own.

His father was to be disappointed. For while Phillip loved space; was more at home on the deck of a ship than on the ground, he sought adventure; to see what was out there, and to become famous on his own merits. Not for him the life of routine patrols and pacification of rebels and xenos. Not when there was a whole universe to explore. So, he acquired an Imperial Warrant. How he got it is still a mystery. His name helped, no doubt of that, and no doubt some money changed hands and favors were exchanged. At any rate, the warrant was his. His father was sad to see him go, but, if truth be told, not too sad. He had other sons, more biddable sons who would be glad to carry on the family dynasty. So, Phillip set out, to explore strange new worlds and loot them for everything they had, to discover new life and new civilizations and wipe them out for the glory of the Empire, and to boldly go wherever he could make some Thrones.
