I WARN YOU ABOUT THE BIOTRANSFER! I TOLD YOU BRO!!!

Orikan the Diviner is one of the most powerful Crypteks in the entire Necron Empire. In particular, he is an astromancer, specializing in reading the future from the patterns and motions of the stars.

He is acknowledged as the very best in his field -- apparently, he was able to predict the Fall of the Eldar, Horus Heresy, and the coming of the Tyranids sixty million years in advance -- which gives him a massive ego. He has no respect for the nobles who hire him, but his reputation renders him effectively immune from punishment, because any Overlord who wishes to harm him is paralyzed by the thought that Orikan must have foreseen that sequence of events and taken steps to prevent it or take pre-emptive vengeance.

In reality, Orikan is not quite as good a forecaster as the Necron nobles think he is. He can predict events in more detail than any other astromancer, but even he makes mistakes. He makes up for this with his mastery of time travel -- if his prediction is erroneous, he goes back in time and manipulates events to conform to the prediction (in spite of the unforseen events that this can bring about later).

Orikan's big plan is to somehow harness the power of the alignment of the stars in the indeterminate future. He has a chance of doing this in miniature during games of Warhammer 40,000 with a special rule called "The Stars Are Right" (feel free to make Cthulhu jokes as desired). He gains a hefty stat boost if you roll equal to or under the current turn number (though he reverts if this roll succeeds again). For maximum nostalgia, go full Mumm-Ra and invoke the "ancient spirits of evil" whenever you roll that die (the rule actually includes evil laughter -- "bwahahaha!").

There is strong evidence to suggest Orikan is a C'tan who managed to avoid the Poké Ball prison: his complete disregard for the necron nobility, the fact he's actively avoiding close scrutiny, and the small tidbit about his empowered stats being identical to that of a C'tan Shard. However, that would also mean that he's one of the weakest C'tan in existence since at his most powerful he's only as strong as a small piece of the rest of the other C'tan. Maybe he is a freed shard or something.
