Flashlights and Cardboard- A Guardsman's Ballad
Lieutenant Rynald Gerrick
The de-facto leader of 3rd Bn, 13th Brimlock Dragoon Regiment.
Born in the city of Delvin on the planet Brimlock, Rynald enlisted in Brimlock’s Planetary Defense Force at the age of 16. After two tours of duty in the surrounding sub-sector, then-Lance Corporal Gerrick was invited to join the 21st Brimlock Dragoons Regiment (Airmobile) as a Cadet Ensign. He quickly rose through the ranks as an infantry officer, demonstrating a skilled and original use of force as he and his subordinates vanquished the foes of the God-Emperor. Unfortunately in the 41st millennium, originality is breeding grounds for heresy. Gerrick was blacklisted for his seeming disregard for the customs of the imperial cult, and he was re-assigned to the new 13th regiment; a unit created so the Brimlock government could show support and cooperation to neighboring planets, as evident by the number of Skitarrii and Krieg troops seconded into the regiment.
Despite this, Gerrick continues to lead, proving time and time again that faith in the Emperor, no matter how unorthodox, shall overcome all odds.
