A long time ago on a planet far, far away....
Far into the future, scientists discovered a temple on another world, which imbued the people who discovered it with arcane powers. Seeking to keep this power for themselves, they created a new society of what they dubbed Sci-mages. They began to use both a combination of science and magic to subjugate the people of the galaxy.
But with any power, the new society began to fray at the edges, as the Sci-mages began to contend one with another for what they considered the most choice planets. While they coveted each other's holdings, they would not openly war with one another. Thus were born the mage assassins, a society of highly trained military operatives that used both science and magic to help assassinate other Sci-mages for the highest bidder.
Enter Golgotha. His homeworld was subjugated most ruthlessly by two Sci-mages, his entire family wiped out as collateral damage in the demon wars on that planet. When he found out one of the Sci-mages of his world was assassinated, he determined to join the assassin's guild by any means possible, so that he could carry out his revenge by making the Sci-mages pay as a whole.
Golgotha became one of the best Mage Assassins the galaxy had ever known. This shot will show him after his first botched attempt at assassinating a particularly nasty Sci-Mage named Nero. Golgotha was regrouping to his dropship in an alleyway and Nero blasts him from behind.
