Ciaphas Cain is a servant of the Emperor of Mankind in the Warhammer 40k universe. A Commissar (aka political and tactical officer) most often serving with regiments of the Imperial Guard from the Ice Planet Valhalla. he is never to be found without his faithful aide Jurgen who has the ability to block psychic activity in addition to being stupid and smelly. Cain is a pathological and thinks little of himself. He is however a natural leader and excellent warrior and swordsman. He has an excellent and sarcastic sense of humor and loves to annoy all overly religious legalistic prats. Sometimes found in the employ of the Ordo Xenos Inquisitor Amberley Vail and is her sometimes lover. it should also be noted that he is an expert gambler and drinker. He tend to drink a lot of tanna (tea) and amisec (fine alcohol). He is persuasive and downplays his actions, typically with sarcasm and casual attitude. Also he counts "meat shields" between himself and the enemy and hates being shot at.
Ciaphas Cain is a hero of the emperium often when it suits Inquisitor Vail's needs.
