Watch-Captain Estaban De Dominova

Watch Captain Esteban de Dominova of the Crimson Fists Chapter

Watch Captain Esteban de Dominova hails from the Crimson Fists Chapter of the Adeptus Astartes. De Dominova is an intense, laconic, sallow–faced Battle-Brother with pale, colourless eyes prone to brooding silences and piercing glares. Currently serving his fifth Vigil with the Jericho Reach Deathwatch, the Watch Captain is a highly respected Apothecary whose prowess in the operating theatre has reached near mythic proportions among the Kill–teams with which he has served. Indeed, many a Battle-Brother currently serving a vigil in the Jericho Reach owe their limbs, if not their very lives, to his quick thinking and sure hands. Along with his prodigious medical skills, and the usual finely honed warrior abilities possessed by every Battle-Brother, Watch Captain de Dominova is also a noted xenobiologist who is known to work closely with the Ordo Xenos and the Adeptus Mechanicus' Magi Biologis in various capacities.

These virtues, along with a more than passing familiarity with military intelligence and the comings and goings of the Inquisitors of the Ordo Xenos, make the Watch Captain well suited to guide Kill–teams through upcoming trials. Indeed, it is often at his behest that a Kill–team is seconded to him. These requests tend to cause much discussion and chafe a few egos among the leadership of Watch Fortress Erioch. The very soul of discretion, Watch Captain de Dominova is a hard Battle-Brother to know. He is a closed book to all but his most trusted friends, and even those who can claim this distinction declare that they know precious little about him. As a Kill–team works closely with their new Watch Captain throughout a mission, he slowly opens up to them, revealing a pious and passionate Battle-Brother, conversant in numerous learned subjects, fluent in a dozen languages, and possessed of a very, very dry wit.
