"Sailor Keres, Soldier of the Sacred Blood, protector of the accursed warriors of the Death Company, progeny of the Ninth Legion Astartes, member of the Star Warriors, the Lady Keres."
In an adjacent galaxy, there lies the Imperium of Man, a pan-galactic theocratic empire with humanity as its dominant species. It consists of many different worlds and cultures, and it is where the Star Warriors receive a large number of their recruits. Amongst that number are five Sailor Senshi all hailing from a single star system, the guardians of its sole planet, its two moons, their world's sacred blood........and the cursed warriors that reside there.
All five are actually a quintuplet of sisters born in the same year, a rare occurrence in their world, and even more rare is the fact that they are nearly identical to each other; though facially and physiologically different, they share the same basic form: extremely pale skin, hair of the darkest black.........and red eyes, a rare trait of their people.
For the five sisters come from a race of people known as the Blood. The Blood are the only race of pure humans that reside on this planet, known as Baal, and its two moons, Baal Prime and Baal Secundus. Baal itself is a barren world with levels of radiation that would kill normal humans, while its two moons are slightly more stable though still dangerous to a human. Yet these people, the Blood, are hardened physically against such radiation through years of hardship and have thrived as a great civilization.
These five sisters are from this race, but even amongst their kind they were regarded as truly beautiful women. None had ever seen such remarkable beings, bearing perfect physiques. It was obvious they were destined for great things. And indeed they were, for they displayed all the great traits sought after in a potential recruit. So it was that the Star Warriors came to their home planet and offered all five sisters the chance to become Sailor Senshi. Seeing this as the prophecy foretold by their elders of when they would be elevated to do great things, the sisters accepted. They proved to be some of the strongest recruits the Star Warriors had ever seen, and some of the most independent. When the time came to receive their Senshi titles, they chose to become the guardians of their people.
Thus did they do this: the eldest would become the protector of Baal itself, while the other four would each guard the moons, sacred blood, and cursed warriors of their people. That is why they chose to honor the superhuman warriors of their people, the Ninth Legion Astartes- the Blood Angels- by wearing their colors and their emblem: a winged drop of blood.
The third-oldest of the five sisters, Carmina chose to be the guardian of the warriors who had fallen to the Blood Angels' secret curse: the Black Rage, a potent curse so feared that once it claimed a victim, it stripped away all their good nobility until only a bloodthirsty beast remained. Carmina chose to sacrifice her humanity for the good of those who fell to the Rage, allowing herself to form a sense of rage and bloodlust so potent it has actually equaled the anger of those in the Rage's grasp. Because of her sacrifice, she has become the most violent and bloodthirsty of her sisters, but still retains her love and sense of honor. She wears the colors of the Death Company: black with red saltires, along with all the icons of the Blood Angels.
Weapons and Items
Fangshield- one of her two Attack Items, Fangshield is quite literally that. It is a chainshield, a mechanized weapon taking the form of a protective shield. But that protection has teeth in the form of a custom chainsaw that whirs around the shield, ready to disembowel all who get too close to Carmina.
Blood Cleaver- her primary Attack Item, Blood Cleaver is an eviscerator, a massive two-handed chainsword that is so heavy it needs both hands to wield effectively. But such is Carmina's skill with the blade that she can wield Blood Cleaver with only one hand.
Winged blood drop- she carries a emblem of the Blood Angels with her, for it is her Transformation Item. It is unique in that for every single item of all Imperium-based Star Warriors, only one phrase needs to be said: Imperator Aegis. The Shield of the Emperor. Once that is uttered, her transformation begins and she will begin to smite the Emperor's foes anew.
Endless Bloodlust- the most fearsome of her attacks, Endless Bloodlust is truly an attack to be feared. It heightens the natural rage and bloodlust of Carmina to levels equaling those of the Black Rage itself that she will abandon all reason and simply spill her enemies' blood in a rage-fueled stupor.
Crimson Tide- another strong attack, Carmina can use its power to leech away the blood of still-warm corpses and direct it at her whim, imbued with her rage.
Final Endurance- when she is at the point of exhaustion, Carmina can use this attack to boost her stamina and blood to endure more levels of stress and punishment, enough for her to continue fighting.
Gift of Blood- not all her attacks are offensive. This one is used as a healing ability, for Ephesia can transfer and purify any source of blood and give it as a transfusion to any dying individual, saving them from death.
The third-oldest of the five blood sisters. Carmina, a Sailor Senshi in the colors of the Blood Angels' Death Company. And no, she is not cursed with the Rage or Thirst; they are completely natural to her, for she made them herself.
