Decimus was born to the Hawkwood high court on Delphi. His parents own a palace in the Anschok City Region. Unfortunately for Decimus, he is not the oldest male in his family and is not entitled to the castle and the lands of his parents. He has 3 older brothers and 1 younger sister. He eventually decided to go into the Hawkwood military where he excelled as a space fighter pilot. Then the Emperor War broke out and he was assigned to one of the escort squadrons for Alexius’ flagship. They were ambushed by a Decados fleet. They were greatly outnumbered by Decados fighters. The squadron had been all but annihilated, but he fought on and was able to repulse the enemy fighters preventing them from destroying Alexius’ flagship. Alexius had noticed Decimus’ valor and had invited him to a ceremony to present an award for his valor. The ceremony hid Alexius’ main goal. His goal was he wanted Decimus to serve as one of his Emperor’s Eys. He explained what it is that they Eyes do and how important it was that he had someone that he can trust within the organization. Decimus agreed to be one of Alexius’ Eyes and as a reward, Alexius promised him the title of lord and lands on Delphi once he finishes his service with the Emperor’s Eye.
His current assignment with the Emperor’s Eye is to work within the Ashen Legion. While on this assignment, one of the members who was from House Decados had accidentally blown himself up with a grenade, however Decados believes that he was killed and has tried to take down the Ashen Legion behind the scenes. It is unknown if Decados had a hand in or if one of the members who was a Battle Brother was actually crazy, for he had caused major issues within the Ashen League and caused many deaths because old tech had been found and he had decided to keep it, against the wishes of the Inquisition and his Battle Brother commander. He went crazy and since then, the Ashen legion has been trying to rebuild their respectability. Decimus (Darius) decided to contact his friend Miguel to try and help the Ashen Legion regain their respectability.
