Warrant-Cpl. Vello Optero (KIA)

A humorless and hardened man.


Cpl. Vello is tall and lanky. He is stoic to the point of stone. His right arm almost completely synthetically enhanced due to a service injury.

He was decommissioned as a Corporal in Aktus Minor Planetary Defence Force and was recruited by Samual Aquinus to serve under the Aquinus Warrant of Trade. He had sworn his Blood Oathe to the Aquinus and serves with a steadfast heart. His dedication to the Aquinus is fanatical.

Optero is a fearless leader in the face of battle and leads a squad of equally hardy armsmen. He leads Thunders Squad into battle donning a human skull mask to inspire his soldiers and terrorize enemies.
