Name: Domina Race:Nightmare Class: Homo Sapiens Medusae Birth date: 2248
"A walking deathtrap that preys on the compassion of her victims, Domina prowls the dark corners of a thousand worlds seeking enemies of the Empire. Like all members of the Vigilance Force, Domina possesses the unique ability to ferret out treason where none has been committed.

Name: Specimen 040G Race:Nightmare Class: Homo Sapiens Taratis
"Her eyes are devoid of life, empty orbs that take in the world with an unfeeling gaze. A thin trail of spittle runs untended from her tightly gagged mouth, yet she never rubs it away. Only one thing brings a spark of vitality to this tortured soul: the suffering of others."
