What do Assassins do when not on deployment? Is it just training, sleeping and new briefings all the way, or are they allowed some freedoms? I mean, a Culexus is basically just severely autistic, but a Callidus would likely be allowed to socialize with its handlers, seeing as how social skills may be needed to uphold a disguise. Or do they just repeat phrases they practiced before being deployed?

>> No.23829734

They practice cool catch phrases.

You know, shit they'd say before killing someone, like

"This hurts me, more than it hurts you." or "You ever had ramen? It's delicacy back on Terra"

I mean, what kind of jackass kills someone without saying something cool, that's just poor form.

>> No.23829788

Eversor assassins are kept in cryogenic stasis, since they're so hopped up on drugs that they wouldn't live until the next mission otherwise. Plus, it keeps them from killing anything you don't want dead.

As for the rest, Officio Assassinorum agents are even less human than space marines. Odds are their schedules reflect this.

> seeing as how social skills may be needed to uphold a disguise. Or do they just repeat phrases they practiced before being deployed?
Social skills are probably hypnomat conditioned. Ie there's an implant in your brain allowing skills to be more or less directly downloaded via your optical nerve. It's used extensively with space marines.

As someone with a lot of mental problems I sleep a lot when I'm under stress but have still some free time left. Granted, I have nightmares and shit but I wake up very refreshed.

Think about the people with most experience in any field, doctors and teachers, for example, a lot of them drink, or are womanizers, or do drugs, or have an unhealthy obssession for some hobby, anything to let those troubles breathe and give the conscious mind some space. Some of them are even great artists, or closet scientists, and I have no doubt some of them even post on /tg/ and try to ignite edition wars.

IRL also this balance of having an interesting or hard job makes them either very dull and dead inside or pretty interesting dudes to be around. Unique activities give unique views of every situation, and those who are near dead people often learn to appreciate life in strange ways.

So I imagine a successful assassin as someone able to blend in any crowd, a little quirky but with a small crowd of admirers. Many lines rehearsed and a disarming smile prepared for most situations, and something that relaxes them like watching movies or playing minecraft on creative mode?

It depends on each one's personality too, the reason they have for killing, their previous experience and how much "free time" they really have. Are they independent agents or are hired by an agency? Those things.

In 40K, assassins are trained, and in some cases bred, in the Assassin Temples. They have information they need downloaded directly into their skulls. They live only to kill in the Emperor's name. They do not get names, only numbers. In some cases everything that they are is wiped away and they are mindless (And in some cases SOULLESS, literally soulless) killing machines.

It was the manner of his life that he existed in the thick of the killing. He had a dim understanding of the other times, the times when he would lie in the baths of amnio-fluids as the patient machines of his clade healed his wounds or upgraded the stimjectors and drug glands throughout his body. The times when, in the dreamless no-sleep between missions, hypnogoge data streams would unfold in his head like blossoms of information, target profiles linked to mood-triggers that would give him bursts of elation for every kill, jolts of pleasure for each waypoint reached, jerks of pain if he deviated off-programme.

These things had not happened here, though. He reflected on that as he completed his leap, his augmented muscles relaxing to take the impact of landing, the sheer force of his arrival killing one of the fleeing technicians immediately. As he spun about, the knife-claws on his hands and feet opening veins, the grinning rictus of his steel skull-mask steaming with splashes of blood, he searched for a programme, for a set of victory conditions.

There was none. Digging deeper, he reached for his stunted past. He remembered back as far as he could – an hour, perhaps? He replayed the moment. A sudden awakening. The transit cocoon that held him in its silent, womb-like space, where he could wait out the non-time until his next glorious release, suddenly broken. An error, or something else? Enemy action? That assumption was the Garantine’s default setting, after all. He reasoned – as much as he was able – that surely if he had been awakened for any other reason, the hypnogoges would have ensured he knew why.

But there was nothing. No parameters, only wakefulness. And for an Eversor, to be awake was to be in the glory of killing.

In the Eisenhorn trilogy, pariahs are shown to be completely normal, emotionally and mentally, but the effect they have on people, the revulsion and disgust being "soulless" has on people (even if they don't know you're a pariah, they'll sense it) can cause some social issues.

But, for instance, in the Ravenor trilogy, the main pariah character, Wystan Frauka, enjoys chain-smoking lho-sticks and reading cheap, terribly written porno dataslates. He's mostly bored, because his job is to stand around and de-activate the device that supresses his powers when asked.

>> No.23833308

I always pegged Callidus and Vindicare being silent when on mission (Except when the Callidus is morphed), Eversor isn't doing much but screaming incoherently and Clexus (Spelling?) is wanksting to no end.
Vanus doesn't kill (At least nothing that would ever be linked back to them) and Venuem (Again, spelling?) killed you hours earlier when you stubbed your toe on the dresser. Remember how it seemed to hurt a little more then it should've?

Actually, I should go back to OP's topic.

I think Assassins in their spare time not on deployment do what others have said. Train, pray, meditate, learn, practice.

But, when they're on the mission and waiting in position, or infiltrating, or whatever, I imagine they have things they like to do to keep themselves from getting too mentally fatigued. I had a guy in a Dark Heresy game playing an assassin that folded origami- though he vehemently denied it. Just called it folding paper, while waiting for targets to come out or people to act.

Also, I like to imagine Culexus assassins have the most personality, as they are so rare that the temples are going to by necessity be a bit softer on them. Though this is with absolutely no support from canon.

how physically built does a vindicare have to be? they are always shown as being near perfect definition and i just want to see the short stout guy huffing and puffing his 240 pounds up a set of stairs to shoot a guy thousands of yards away, also ill make sure to play him like john candy in uncle buck

Their physique looks to be much like that of olympic athletes, specifically runners and swimmers. And they have Synskin to enhance their abilities even further.

All Temple Assassins are enhanced.

Also Vindicare do alot more than just shoot a gun, first the shoot a gun REAL WELL but second they also work solo and infiltrate better than any normal person, they need to be physically superior to sneak in and escape

>> No.23836475

Synskin does work like that. It enhances the wearer's strength in addition to just acting as a protective suit. It's a bit like the muscle suit from MGS, I guess.

>> No.23836495

how enhanced? like gene inhanced or just a few cybernetics?
also idea for an assassin
tech assassin, given lightweight cybernetics and MIU linked needle rifle, kills in the name of the omnissiah

>> No.23836515

that muscle suit made sense, as it was bulky, and even though snake was old he was still ripped as hell
synthskin seems odd to me, as it has no frame, so i imagine youd be trying to lift something heavy, and it would pull it self up off of your real skin, trying to lift you lift something
synthskin seems annoying as you have tech priests constantly going on about tech heresy

>> No.23836525


Synthskin was probably around in mars when Mechanicus was founded, which would make it a sacred relic instead of tech-heresy.

>The temples use many exotic types of equipment, such as synskin, a substance that once sprayed onto the body, forms a black outer skin which protects the wearer from the environment and enhances strength.

isnt the reason eldar population is so low, is that it takes weeks of sex just to make one offspring? like the more times done adds further genetic info from the male or something like that?

odd thought from that pic btw

>> No.23836628

To be fair, this stuff largely depends on what version of the setting you look at.

For example:
> Dark Heresy
> Cost: 2,500 Thrones
> Synskin is a bio-reactive bodyglove with an inert non-reflective surface that moulds itself to the wearer's form.
> Synskin adds 2 Armour Points to all locations and the wearer gains +10 bonus to Concealment and Silent Move Tests.
> In addition, synskin renders the wearer invisible to the effects of infra-red goggles and Dark Sight.

>> No.23836643

And a different version from Ascension!
> Vindicare Stealth Suit
> This item of wargear appears as a matte-black bodyglove,
specially fitted for the individual Assassin. The Vindicare
Temple has a long-standing pact with the Adeptus Mechanicus
to craft these exquisite suits, each one combining Cameleolinelaced
materials with a complex version of “synskin.” This
material bonds with the Assassin’s body, enhancing his reflexes
and protecting him from poisons, gases, and other hazards of
the battlefield. Each suit is supple and silent, allowing the
Assassin to move with perfect freedom whilst still retaining
its protective qualities.
> The Stealth Suit may not be worn under any form of
armour. It provides 3 points of Armour to all locations and
incorporates all the benefits of synskin. The Stealth Suit grants
a +10 bonus to Dodge Tests and to Toughness tests to resist
any form of toxin, and a +20 bonus to Concealment and
Silent Move Tests. The wearer may attempt a Concealment
Test as a Half Action instead of a Full Action, and may make
the attempt even whilst being observed. If the wearer remains
stationary, he counts as being one range bracket further away
for all ranged attacks against him. The Stealth Suit makes the
wearer invisible to the Dark Sight Trait, preysense, and infared
sensors of all kinds. This item is manufactured at the Best
craftsmanship level.
> It should be noted that the equipment of a Vindicare
Assassin is often gene-coded to that individual and no other,
and that it would take a great deal of effort—and a Very
Hard (–30) Tech-Use and Medicae Test—to adjust the
gene-coding for another user.

It's from xenology.

>> No.23837196

Xenology apparently had some artwork that was inconsistent with the fluff, like Tau with feet instead of hooves. There was also something about it contradicting previous fluff or just science in general, but I don't know what that was about. And thus, some people in the fandom has deemed it to not be canon. Too bad, really, as it really is enjoyable and quite well written as far as GW fluff goes.
