Charlemagne was born on the former Imperial planet of Genemere to a proud military family with a long tradition of service to the ruling Imperial Noble houses. Charlemagne was groomed from a young age to join the planetary guard in service to the Hesperad House. He attended the best schools, joined the right social clubs, played the right sports, and made friends with the children of the right people. Everything was going as planned—— until the Orks came. A huge and unexpected invasion fell upon Charlemagne’s home world during his 15th year and he watched as all his carefully laid plans for position and glory were burned one by one, along with many members of his family and friends. Later, it was discovered that a Rogue Trader captain from Hesperad House had met an Ork warlord over a far-flung jungle planet and humiliated him in a hunting competition, but had made the mistake of leaving the Orks with his name and a reasonably good idea of which planet he had come from. All that death and destruction over nothing more than an ill-advised and reckless bet- better to wipe all Orks from the dark places of the galaxy instead of expecting them to have honor.

Charlemagne escaped the destruction of Genemere and the enslavement of its people aboard the ship his uncle was serving on as the Seneshal. The ship stopped at the capital world of the sector where his uncle had a few friends. Charlemagne’s career was re-started, although at a much lower standing than before. It took him years to work his way through the ranks of the Home Guard of House Kaiser to reach a position of authority, but his single-mindedness, dedication, and ability to hide the less savory of his beliefs and habits has made him an unapologetic ladder-climber and boot-licker.

Although it is not well known, Charlemagne lost his faith on the day that his planet was destroyed, and is a quiet member of a small group that believes that the Emperor is not divine. Charlemagne is also bi-sexual, which in his mind, is just a way to make himself more attractive to more people so that he can secure the promotions he wants. He will not be satisfied until his name is shouted from the dark corridors of the galaxy as a great and powerful warlord, preferably as the one that wiped out the Orks.
