Rogue Trader - The Hos Dynasty
Over inflated pirate who soon found himself outclassed, and then dead.
The self-proclaimed Pirate Admiral of the Inti System, his discovery of an ancient Archeotech Space Station allowed him to amass a modest fleet, and harass nearby merchantmen and travellers heading through The Cauldron, and occasionally venturing into raiding The Foundling Worlds. His luck ran out when he attempted to capture the In Purgatio Lumen, only to discover he also faced the backup of the Mechanicus’s In Obscurum Veritas.
During the fight a vessel near his found its Warp Drive punctured by the lance of the Lumen, and in the resulting Warp Drive explosion his vessel was pulled into the Warp. His fleet fell into disarray, and was picked apart by the Hos Dynasty. Augustus Herst revealed in the after-action debriefing that he ensured loyalty through an unknown contract with a Navigator House, the origin of which was never determined. Whatever other secrets Jacobus may have held died with him.
