This is a WIP character that I've been using for AKUMA's tournament, and I've decided to finalise just What he can actually do in and out of combat. Now, I'm sure that this is Not how an actual Grey Knight would be like... but it's the closest that I can actually get to it. Most info has been taken from Dark Heresy and has been expanded upon to fit what first a Space Marine could look like in game, and then what a Grey Knight would look like.
Truly it was his first day in the Position of the Honoured Brother Captain of the Grey Knights, but alas Fate would see him taken away just as he entered into Battle to lead his Chapter to war. It was through a Trick of the Warp that he was pulled into AKUMA's Tournament along with the Necron Lord. Upon entering the tournament he was given the Choice to train for a Day in Any Location he could think of. But he didn't hear it because he was Dumbstruck by the fact that he had actually entered another dimension, one where he could not feel the presence of the God Emperor of Mankind. The Necron Lord who was supposed to be his Tag Team Companion chose for them, and they were whisked away to the Mars, specifically to the Void Dragons Chamber.
Here they got a major surprise as The manifested Spirit of the GEOM was there with the Void Dragon, conversing and discussing in an un-natural alliance. Here the GEOM told Regis what he must do, and that he must enter the tournament and fight beside the Necron, and he accepted this task.
After being transported back to the tournament they engaged in their first round with the Sith Stalker known as Starkiller (Did I get that right?) With the Necron Lord engaging first. The two fought as Regis was forced to make his way slowly through the battlefield terrain, and for the most part was inconclusive with the Sith not being able to harm the Necron, and the Necron not knowing where the elusive Sith was in order to attack him.
With that the Necron became irritated and left the field of battle leaving Regis to deal with the opposition. At this point Star Killer took his leave and taped out for his Tag, Sora from Kingdom Hearts. The Battle was hard fought, and it seemed at times that Regis would come out on top, but the round timer ran out and pure crowd votes determined that Regis had lost. This allowed the combined might of Sora and Starkiller to blitz the Grey Knight into submission.
After that humiliating defeat he and the others that had lost in Round One were locked up a location known only as the Temples. These Temples were the only structures on the island and had only two buildings separated by a large and haunted looking forest. Winners were put in one complex and the Losers in the other.
It was as Round Two kicked off that a plan was created to break out of the jail. In spite of all their planning, the prisoners took advantage of a freak occurrence to escape. As it happened, Starkiller did not trust the Cloaked shadow priest that seemed to be running the competition and had Stitch (Whom Sora had "Summoned") scout around the area. Stitch then stumbled across the Prisons and managed to get some Gear into the cells of the prisoners for them to escape with. The Shadow Priests stepped in and Locked down the prison with their powerful magics, but Stitch managed to free Regis.
Thus freed Regis attempted to attack the Priests with his Grey Knights Holochaust Psychic power but failed as their Barrier deflected the power back at him. In order to survive the rebounding energies he threw them at the very wall of reality itself and burst a hole into the warp. Seeing it as his only option for escape he Jumped into it. The Corrupting energies of the warp took a toll even on the Hardened Grey Knight, but Bending every once of his will to the task he punched a hole back into reality. The ordeal however left it's mark on the Knight, mutating him into an Aberration, a fusion of Man and Bestial features.
At this time the other Competitors revolted against the Guards and Shadow Priests and made their way to the Prison. After Re-arming and Re-equipping they attempted to attack the Main Temple, getting ambushed in the forest between. While they fought, Regis moved on ahead to the main temple and confronted the Priests. The situation became tenuous as he was given the Choice of either Surrender or having everyone else on the Island Die. He chose instead to tactically withdraw and fight the battle outside with the support of the others.
The battle was a furious melee, that devolved into a confused mess as the combatants fought for survival against ever increasing numbers of foes. Finally Akuma himself showed up and confronted the tournament contestants, but one of the other contestants had foreseen this happening and had given a power to one of the other competitors. Together those two were able to defeat Akuma, however the demon had the Last Laugh starting a process that would sink the island and Drown all the survivors.
Thinking quickly a portal was opened that would allow everyone to escape the island. To Be Continued...

He "sees" everything around him and even slightly into the future. [size=2][font="Franklin Gothic Medium"][b]Effect:[/b] When Regis is using this power, he sees Everything around him at once, as well as limited precognition (0.7 seconds x Overbleed) [b]Limits on use:[/b] Cannot combine this power with other psychic disciplines except for common.[/font][/size] [b][size=3]Psychic Discipline: Telepathy[/size] Telepathy[/b] Can send my thoughts into the minds of anyone around me.

Range 7km[/font][/size] [b][size=3]Psychic Discipline: Grey Knight[/size] Holocaust: [/b]The Psyker calls forth a raging white-hot firestorm ignited by his own soul, usually out to about a 6m radius. The Flames burn across dimensions, affecting the entities of the immaterium as well as the material. Normally this would also cause harm to the psyker, but Grey Knights in their Aegis Armour can shrug off the effects on themselves. This damage by-passes the targets physical defenses, such as how tough they are or any armour they are wearing. Those slain by Holochaust are killed forever... [size=2][font="Franklin Gothic Medium"][b]Effect:[/b] Deals 7d10 points of (Energy) Damage to everything within 6m, even creatures normally immune to Flame will burn as though they werenâ€™t. [b]Limitations on Use:[/b] Regis will take 1d10+10 (Energy) Damage per turn while using this, though he may use the DR of his Aegis Armour. [/font][/size] [b]Sanctuary:[/b] The Psyker can conjure wards around himself and companions through which enemies have difficulty approaching. For enemies breaching the threshold of this Sanctuary the very air repels them and strikes at them with ethereal electrical charges. [size=2][font="Franklin Gothic Medium"][b]Effect:[/b] Anyone not designated â€œSafeâ€ by Regis, will find a Strong unnatural wind trying to blow them away from Regis, and they will suffer 1 points of (Energy) Damage per turn that they are in his area.

It will blind their senses with the shining light of faith and resolution. [size=2][font="Franklin Gothic Medium"][b]Effect:[/b] While Regis is using this ability, anyone in his line of sight will be effected by it. The amount that their senses are clouded is based on how they are looking at Regis, with only hints of incense, whispers of chant and a faint light if they only see him in their far peripheral vision. While anyone looking directly at Regis will feel as though they are starring into the sun, hear only a deafening chanting, and will smell nothing but burning incense...[/font][/size]
