Esteban de Dominova
An intense, sallow–faced Battle Brother with pale, colorless eyes, Watch Captain de Dominova was originally of the Crimson Fists Chapter. Currently serving his fifth tour of duty (or Vigil) with the Deathwatch, de Dominova is a highly respected Apothecary whose prowess has reached near mythic proportions among the Kill–teams with which he has served. Many a Battle-Brother serving a vigil in the Jericho Reach owe their lives to his quick thinking and medical abilities. Along with his prodigious medical skills, and the usual finely honed warrior abilities possessed by every Battle-Brother, Watch Captain Dominova is also a noted xenobiologist who is known to work closely with the Ordo Xenos and the Magos Biologis in various capacities. These virtues, along with a familiarity with military intelligence and the Ordo Xenos make the Watch Captain well suited to guide Kill–teams through their trials. Indeed, it was at his behest that a Kill–team was seconded to him, a request that caused much discussion among the leadership of Watch Fortress Erioch. Possessing high discretion, Watch Captain de Dominova is a hard Battle Brother to know and is known for his reclusive nature. As the Kill–team works closely with this new Watch Captain throughout the events of the upcoming 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.
