It is said Orikan predicted the the Fall of the Eldar, the rise of the Imperium, the Horus Heresy, and the coming of the Tyranids, many thousands of years before each came to pass. He can even divine lesser occurrences such as the destinies of individuals and the movement of fleets. Though his studies are widely used, few amongst Orikan's Cryptek peers trust him due to the insolence and mocking scorn in which he treats the nobility of every rank, even mighty Necron Overlords. However this is largely tolerated as the benefits of his skills greatly outweigh any offense caused by his manner and Orikan knows the plans of the rivals long before they do, making it almost impossible to best him anyway.
Though he is a skilled astromancer, his predictions are not flawless and unforeseen events can change his calculations. Warp travel is such an event, its turbulent nature defying any prediction. Under such circumstances, he is forced to employ closely guarded chronomantic abilities and travel backwards in time to make sure that his prophesied future events are back on track. When the Imperial Navy dockyards at Helios VI were left standing against Waaagh! Skullkrak due to a timely intervention by the Silver Skulls Space Marines, in defiance of his original prophecy, Orikan traveled back in time and ambushed the Space Marines, ensuring that his original prediction came to pass and his reputation was intact. He takes great care to keep his advanced time traveling abilities from his peers, ensuring that he holds an advantage over them.
Orikan takes great care to keep his machinations hidden from his peers. A thousand millennia of planning and preparation are about to come to fruition. Once the stars are in proper alignment, Orikan will finally embrace his true destiny; his physical form will become a vessel for celestial energies and transform him into a being of terrible power. The temporal traps he has set throughout the galaxy will activate and Orikan will manipulate time itself to his advantage.
