Name: Brother James Connolly
Chapter: Black Knights
Specialty: Close Combat
Background: A skilled fighter at close quarters, Brother Connolly has trained for decades to become a master with the blade. Hailing from the Black Knights home world of Chbal, a feudal world ruled by rival kingdoms, he was born into a noble family, and began his training with a sword at the age of 9. At 20, he was recruited by the Black Knights, as many of the best young Noblemen were. He quickly made a name for himself as one of the best duelers found within the ranks of the chapter.
Connolly made a name for himself as a neophyte scout when he successfully defeated a traitor marine sergeant in a duel with only his combat knife. His superiors took notice, and moved him to an assault squad, where he would often lead the charge into battle for Black Knight strike forces. Armed with a chainsword now, he made quick work of lesser enemies. After 20 years of success, he was inducted into the brotherhood of the cloth, the Black Knight equivalent of the first company. Dressed in dark grey robes and armed with a powersword and storm shield, he became one of the most respected warriors in the chapter.
Connolly joined the Deathwatch after a strike force he was on was ambushed by Dark Eldar, then rescued by intervention by deathwatch Marines. As thanks, he volunteered his service to them.
