Not enough voidborn stuff in 40k, it's a really cool concept that doesn't get much love.

Would you please add a brief description of the worlds? I don't know much about the Warhammer setting.

The guy who wrote this letter is an rear end in a top hat, our cats clearly love us.

Also void born; you were born in Space!
Usually one of the massive, millennia old spaceships plying the space lanes, but massive space stations are also an option.

Stereotypically, you're pale, skinny, and spooky. You probably have a decent handle on tech. Actually sounds kind of goony, now that I think of it.

Ship crews are frequently divided into tribes, like "Starboard Life Sustainers" or "Port Scan Techs", and they can be so isolated they forget there's a galaxy beyond the ship, or that they're on a ship at all.

40K ships are supposed to be, these massive gothic vessels, basically giant space cathedrals that have howling wilderness of forgotten corridors and holds between densely packed crew sections, shining bastions of ultra-tech, that have chain gangs hundreds strong pulling massive torpedoes into place.
Ignore any numbers you're given, 40K writers are bad at math and usually end up making ships less dense than styrofoam and more thinly populated than Mongolia.

Could combine 4&11, make the character from the bridge crew, the aristocracy of the void born.

Go with whatever the gently caress the chaotic evil equivalent is, let's get all sorts of nutty.

Nah, they're all skills and traits and such. Alignment doesn't really come up in character creation.
Team Gaze Into the Abyss is more like a Tiefling, though, and you're not going to get a chance to pick it at any later time.
Also, our character description of bluish skin and no hair and black eyes basically demands it; people will suspect us anyway, so we may as well get the benefit.

Or it sounds like we've got a nasty case of argyria from all the colloidal silver in the holy water we drink to suppress our tainted blood.

Alternatively, keep them, but only allow the XP to be spent on Lore/Perception/that Total Recall perk, as it becomes increasingly obvious Ohone has a head for obscure trivia.

Ohone's white blood cells have tiny little nanomachines grafted onto them whose programming augments their primitive biological instincts with squad-based tactics and a distributed strategic calculation network, and whose tiny lasguns bring death to all and any invading xenos. Stenciled onto the mechanical component of each servitor leucocyte in letters whose lines are no more than an atom wide are two simple words: "gently caress Nurgle."
That's pretty Radical.
I mean, inscribing the name of the Chaos god of Pestilence on each and every single white blood cells. And in terms that bring it to the attention of the God of Excess, too.
I'd have to call that a wildly convoluted strategy. And white blood cells are pretty violent, too. Congratulations are in order, I guess? Assuming you were planning for your immune system to launch the next Black Crusade somewhere.

I'm sorry but they disappeared tomorrow.
You'll have to travel thousands of years ago in the future, but wouldn't you love to join the greatest mission an Inquisitor could dream of?

Sure, your Thorians and Recongregationists may dream of ressurecting the Emperor and rebuilding the Imperium. The Athena worshippers dream of refounding Martian Federation. These are all noble dreams.
You may think of becoming a Radical; desperate times call for desperate measures, and these are desperate times indeed.

But these well-worn paths all have the same fatal flaw. They all cede the initiative from the start, they react to events rather than shaping them.

An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Far, far better to ensure that desperate times never come to pass, that the Imperium was never sundered, that the Emperor never fell, that Athena still had the support of her mighty Pantheon.
Why fix something when you can keep it from breaking in the first place?

So set right what once went wrong. Join the Ordo Chronos.
