So I recently won a brand new Imperial Knight on ebay. At last! So my last day has been sitting thinking of colours and ideas about who or what he should be. I've decided to build a Freeblade that will fight alongside my Space Wolves, but also could be used with any other force really, and have written a little bio which you can read below:
The Freeblade Knight known as Iron Wolf was first encountered by Jarl Jaigen Dire Heart during the war to reclaim Tarix Primus from the Tyranids of Hive Fleet Occisor. Though the Wolves have no idea where he came from, Tarix was not a Knight world after all, they howled with battle lust at the carnage wrought by the great machine as it strode out of the blizzards. When the battle was done and the world reclaimed Jaigen met with the Knight pilot, a man who even out of his armour wore a mask in the same style as his suit, to offer his thanks. When asked his name the Knight replied, "I have no name, not anymore."
Jaigen considered this for while, gazing at the suits pitted and scarred armour. There was no livery to speak of.
"Freeblade?" Jaigen asked cautiously.
"Aye." The Knight replied.
"What will you do now?"
For a while the Knight did not answer then replied, "Jarl Jaigen, I have seen your men fight and I know that the Wolves of Fenris are men of honour. If you would accept it, I would swear an oath to fight at your side until death claims me."
Jaigen was taken aback, he glanced at his retinue of Wolf Guard, Morkais Teeth, particularly to Loken Blackpaw his oldest and most trusted friend.
"You'd be a fool to say no." Loken shrugged.
"Accepted then." Jaigen replied taking the Knights arm in a warriors grip. "What will we call you then? I cannot give orders to a man with no title."
"What about... Iron Wolf?" Loken offered.
The knight bowed his head, "That is an acceptable title."
Since then there has been no battle fought by Jaigen and his Wolves that has not seen the Iron Wolf striding with them, his once blank armour now adorned with livery, kill tallies and trophies inspired by the warriors with which he fights. Though none of them know his past, every wolf respects the man and the machine he is now. To them he has earned his place and continues to uphold his oath with blood and glory.
