Morgan Trippetta was born on a hive-world. Orphaned at a young age, he grew up in an undercity gang. He was small for his age, but fast and light on his feet, good at getting around through crawlspaces and ducts unnoticed even when other hive-rats started disappearing.

When he was eight years old, the Inquisition detected a Genestealer cult operating deep in the undercity. A Raven Guard detachment was brought in to purge the infestation, leaving the locals trapped between two opposing forces with their normal food supplies cut off. Morgan was caught pilfering from a Raven Guard supply point, having slipped past their sentries; when confronted he attacked an armoured Marine twice his height with a knife. Although he was quickly subdued, the Raven Guard selected him for recruitment.

He passed through the normal training and implant process, and spent two years as a scout. Although his marksmanship was nothing spectacular, his talents for stealth and close combat were shown in several engagements with Orks. He rotated through Devastator and Tactical squads, but it was clear that he was better suited for a role as an Assault Marine, with a knack for ambush tactics.

In his most recent mission with the Raven Guard, his squad was sent in as part of a Thunderhawk drop to assault an Ork command base. However, the Thunderhawk was shot down before it reached the drop point, and the survivors had to leap from the wreckage. Instead of dropping on top of the battery, they landed two miles away in clear terrain; the Orks tracked them all the way down, and the detachment was obliterated by heavy artillery as they hit the ground. Trippetta was the only survivor; he took cover in a deep crater, then waited for the patrol who would inevitably be sent to search the site.

When they arrived, he triggered a bouquet of blind grenades, covering the area in impenetrable smoke. In the confusion he killed several Ork Boyz, then made his exit just as the artillery opened up again and shredded the rest of the patrol. He spent the next two days working his way towards the encampment, then slipped in during the night and planted a melta-bomb under the biggest and most impressive of the Ork Trukks. Two days later when the Orks attempted to move out, the bomb detonated and vapourised most of their leadership; by that time Trippetta was long gone.

His captain had been requested to second a promising Assault Marine to the Deathwatch, and since Trippetta was temporarily without a squad, he was the obvious choice.
