Ne’Krin “Nek” Vanden was a Coven sergeant in his the Clan, Clan Vurgaan, of the Chapter the Iron Hands. As a young Aspirant Nek knew that he would be a great Astartes. He climbed the ranks of his fellows until he was bestowed the honor of being a fully-fledged Astartes. As a Battle brother, Nek proved time and time again that he was everything an Astartes should be, and more. At last his excellence was noted, and he was given the honor of becoming squad sergeant. Leading his squad into battle, Nek inspired those around him, but he was not without flaws. Nek thought very highly of his decisions, which did not help the coupled with that he almost always chose the best option. As a brother sergeant, Nek realized he needed to be wary. Being the youngest brother sergeant in his clan, probably his chapter, would bring its own weight on his shoulders. Nek was cautious around those he saw as leaders, and seemed to be unwilling to share openly. This behavior was not bestowed to his peers, which he treated as good friends. Nek could be seen as a cold and calculating brother sergeant, more befitted to be a tech marine than space marine, but his squad brothers saw him differently. They saw a brother sergeant that knew what had to be done, and did not hesitate to do it. Though seeming without remorse, Nek often felt the weight of his decisions, but he still trusted no one else with making them. When chosen for the deathwatch, Nek realized he would not be in a place of power right away, but he knew that he had a duty to do his best, and would curb his natural tendencies to be silent around authority. Nek knew that the Deathwatch would reinvent what he knew would be needed to be Astartes.
