A resilient combatant who relishes pain.
Dhurnam loved to hurt things. As a Grineer officer, he inflicted pain at any possible opportunity. So when he heard about Tyl Regor's experimental body augmentations, he clamoured to become a subject. He didn't care about side effects; anything to become stronger.
The experiment left him sluggish and unresponsive. Weak of voice, he whispered for death. Instead, Regor ordered him beaten. The pain brought Dhurnam to life. He became a beast, eviscerating the unfortunate things sent to hurt him. Regor was pleased.
But the experiment was only a partial success. Without pain, Dhurnam grew weak again. Unfit for regular duty, the pits of Rathuum became his new home – the only place where he could find the steady diet of torment and suffering needed to survive.
Heals his team with advanced medical technology.
Once a medical officer under Sargas Ruk, Thul failed to save the life of one of his favoured officers. Thul was "reassigned" to service under Kela as an Executioner of Rathuum. He has managed to survive under the protection of his allies, who value his medical skills.
An agile combatant without fear.
The sole survivor of a frontier battalion that was eradicated by a lone Tenno. When Garesh eventually returned to civilisation he was tried as a deserter and sentenced to death by Rathuum. To everyone's surprise, he killed all his Executioners and was granted pardon, on the condition that he himself become an Executioner. Garesh yearns for the day when he can punish a Tenno.
A frontline warrior who protects his allies.
Gorth was a distinguished member of the Nightwatch Corps, but when he unwittingly killed a close ally of Lech Kril for stealing supplies, he faced political fallout that destroyed his career. Exiled from military service, Gorth now seeks to redeem his honour as an Executioner of Rathuum.
A deceptive and cunning combatant.
Olka Harkonar hails from the Harkonar Production Zone. She is one of the few nobles not satisfied by simply watching her weapons wreak havoc – she needed to join the fray. So Olka Harkonar became an Executioner of Rathuum, vowing to prove the might of Harkonar weapons and armour with every judgement she makes.
An experienced veteran, trained and disciplined.
Nok led a decorated career in service to Captain Vor, tasked with routing out any weak or anarchic influences within the ranks of the Grineer army. After many years of loyal service, the degenerative effects that plague all Grineer began taking their toll on Nok. With Vor's blessing, Nok was granted leave to spend his remaining days punishing Grineer in the court of Rathuum.
A cunning combatant that uses machinery to assist him.
Reth was once a simple labourer working in the shipyards of Ceres. He often wondered how lethal the equipment he worked with could be if he made only minor tweaks to its design. After a series of escalating killings, his handiwork was discovered by his superiors. Rather than risk being captured, Reth fled to Kela, where he now tests his latest machinations in the service of Rathuum.
Highly manoeuvrable combatant with devastating attacks.
