Return of the King
Lord Captain Harak Stellan, a Rogue Trader whose family had a long and larger than life history, was the head of a large and very powerful Rogue Trader dynasty. The Stellan dynasty was widespread, and had great relations with a wide range of factions and governments throughout this part of the galaxy, and particularly good relations with several key members of Ordo Xeno and Ordo Hereticus. These associations are odd given that most Rogue Traders are heavily involved with both potentially troublesome aliens, and wish to avoid the notice of any heresy seeking organizations due to frequent brushes with potentially proscribed people or items. For reasons that are not entirely understood, the Stellan dynasty had a vendetta against the Locke line, and it is reasoned, it went both ways. The Locke dynasty was far more powerful, and has very powerful allies, and when Kieran Locke married the Blackthorne Lord, one would have thought the line now untouchable, however Harak was a near genius of tactics and had the direct alliance of several members of the Inquisition. In spite of this, observers would never think that Stellan would have a chance at attacking the Locke clan, and yet he did.
