The Rogue Trader Madam Charlabelle is the daughter of the infamous Lord-Captain Armelan, whose fortunes were dashed when an Ork invasion overwhelmed his clan’s home system of Adrianni-Spinward. Armelan threw himself and the fortunes of his house into the war effort, knowing that if he did not, the bulk of his interests would be lost and centuries of tradition and honour defiled. Armelan committed his entire fleet to the effort, rushing an endless stream of reinforcements and materiel to the defence. Unfortunately, Armelan’s actions were as rash as honourable, and all save a handful of his vessels were destroyed as the Ork fleet crushed the system’s defences.
House of Armelan was left with a single warp-capable transport (the Grace of Sopha) and a dozen or so inter-system vessels. The clan’s fortunes crumbled and Armelan was forced to divest himself of what resources remained outside of Adrianni-Spinward. His health and sanity failing him, Armelan retreated to his last sanctuary, a now dilapidated manse on Malfi, where he quietly sunk into a amsec-fuelled fantasy world.
