Personal Gear
Xeno-Mesh (underarmor)
A set of shirt and pants that appear woven underclothing at distance, but when inspected up-close are revealed to consist of an uncountable number of rings constructed from an unknown substance that is remarkably resilient to fracture or burning for its size. Also quite comfortable, and fits remarkably well.

Laspistol
A basic and ubiquitous sidearm. The pattern is common enough that it provides little clue to its origin.

Field Toolkit (Small Item)
A large array of tools used by a lot of lay mechanics and achotechnologists to maintain equipment or examine items found during their travels. This particular kit has smaller tools that are more useful for handheld items. Comes with its own custom backpack.

There was a reason behind this, if only he could remember.

Background
Guido's history is unknown, even to himself. As far as he is aware he is an information broker of sorts. He uses his in depth knowledge of xenos and their technology to recover information from sources inside and out of the Imperium. He also believes himself to be working for a covert (and radical) department within the Ordo Xenos and is simply making ends meet and passing the time until he contact is made. He is a recent acquisition for the [Dynasty]

True History
[Redacted] started off as a low level Heretek on [Redacted] where he as a youth he spent a lot of time exploring the ruins of a long dead xenos city on a nearby asteroid. He managed to learn enough about the culture and technology to pass as an expert. He leveraged this into getting an expedition funded and became a mildly successful Xeno arcanist.

One of his more successful expeditions to [Redacted] yielded plentiful discoveries that could lead to rich opportunities in cold trade for the local authorities. Unfortunately the return voyage was troubled and as the artifacts appeared to be more than what they seemed. With so many of the artifacts in close proximity there were unexpected events during the warp transit. The ship survived thanks to [Redacted]'s quick thinking, re-calibration of the warp drive and his use of the [Redacted] artifact. Many of the crew were [Redacted] and the ship had to be towed the rest of the way by a local Astartes vessel which of course meant uncomfortable questions for those in charge. Looking to protect their interests and downplay their involvement the local authorities accused [Redacted] of being dangerously heretical using the dark voyage as proof. Disavowing all knowledge of the recovered xenos technology they argued that [Redacted] should be punished as harshly as possible and reduced to a mono-task servator. [Redacted] was apprehended but used secretly implanted xenos technology to upload his own instructions to the cogitator that was to reduce him to a servator. Instead he was mind cleansed, assigned a new identity and his records were sealed as per a fake Ordo Xenos instruction. The implanted xenos artifact is programmed to restore his memory completely should anyone say his true name (in full) to him. He had planned to get reassigned to his home world where someone would recognize him and thus restore his memory but he had not counted on flaws in the Imperial bureaucracy.

Instead misfiled paperwork sent him to the Expanse, far far away from anyone who has ever heard of him before where he waits for instructions that will never come.

Personality
Guido is guarded and hesitant to trust people. He is fascinated by xenos technology and has a gift for understanding technology in general that he does not fully understand.

Description
Guido is fairly nondescript, his hair is brown and his eyes are a faded grey. His age is uncertain but he appears to be in his thirties. He frequently sports thee day old stubble but does not intend to grow facial hair. His clothing is utilitarian and he does not have any visible augmentations.
