HQ staff officer is an OW "Commander" advanced archtype.

 

A quartermaster is an Sage with the with the IG background

 

An investigative Arbiter would be a seeker with the Ad Arb. background. (which I think would be the standard rather than the warrior) Being Sherlock homes Vs. Judge Dredd is a matter of personality and subtlety.

 

I personally think of any DH character in much the same way as I think of 1st lvl D&D characters: They are rank beginners! With the elite advance system, I can even see them advancing into other "Standard" careers. For example: A warrior with the IG background could easily "elite advance" at 2000 xp. into an OW Weapon specialist or Heavy Gunner. (Or whatever if he had the right skill set!) . Further, I think it was intentional on ffg's part to allow for this kind of "Cross platform" Gaming.

I really hope so, that this cross-platform gaming will be a focus in the future.

 

I'd love to be able to integrate parts of RT and OW into DH more easily. DW and BC are a little more special - but RT and OW are ideal to be streamlined with DH in my opinion.

That is exactly my point. I think it would be very interesting to complete a story arc where a a character is recruited off a Feral world and rises up to become an Astartes Brother Captain! Or the rise from a lowly Hierophant, through a confessor on the battlefield. Taking on the role of rebuilding and purifying the new world as a missionary and finally..Returning to the Imperium with the fiery Zeal of an Inquisitor!

Or even be corrupted and continue on the dark side, launching a black crusade...

So in the best case:

Playing an OW soldiers, who in a mission saw too much and therefore was recruited by the DH2 Inquisition.

After years of service and building up contacts and riches, he leaves the inquisition and gets an arch militant for a RT crew.
On a trip, he gets in contact with the ruinous powers and slowly is corrupted to become a renegate, that wants to join a black crusade.

Respect your brothers and you will also be respected.

In "Best case" scenario, said Rogue trader becomes an Inquisitor himself (Full circle). As such He mounts his own Crusade into the Koronus expanse to reclaim it as an Imperial sector! (Actually this would also work if He just stayed a RT. I would dearly like to see RT updated to the BC/OW rule set next!
