Idira

Right after teaming up with Abelard, you'll run into Idira, a Sanctioned Psyker. She starts off armed with a staff that shoots chain lightning, turning her into a potent spellcaster. Be cautious, though, especially when the unpredictable forces of the Warp act up, as it might lead to some dangerous mishaps.

Keep her at the frontline, poised to unleash powerful firepower when needed.

He'll have a chat with a tank's Machine Spirit to take care of some rebels, and that's your cue to recruit him to your team.

Jae

As you step into Act 2, you'll find yourself on the world of Footfall. When you chat with Governor Vladaym Tocara, keep an eye out for Jae in the same manor. Following this encounter, make your way to the bar in the northern part of Footfall Shadow Quarters. Inside, Jae proposes a deal, seeking your aid for her team of smugglers. Opt for Jae's plan and head to the warehouse tucked away in the eastern alley of the Shadow Quarters. Once you clear out the hostiles inside, Jae is ready to join your team in Warhammer 40000 Rogue Trader.

Yrliet

Meet Yrliet, an Aeldari, which is just a fancy term for an Eldar or space elf. Trust doesn't come easy for her when it comes to humans or “mon-keigh.” Currently, she's playing the role of protector for Janus' governor. Once you've dealt with some rebels in the first encounter, have a conversation with the governor. Afterward, head to the gazebo outside the manor and extend an invitation to Yrliet to join your team in Warhammer 40000 Rogue Trader.

Ulfar

To Recruit Ulfar, an Adeptus Astartes in Warhammer 40000 Rogue Trader, you must follow different steps. First of all, you need to win Act 3's first arena battle to access Commorragh's Anatomical Opera. Inside, find Ulfar imprisoned and ask for his help to start freeing him. Talk to Tervantias, the Archmachinator in charge, and say, “I need a moment of your time and I'm willing to pay.”

Trade a monster part, obtained from arena battles or Commorragh loot. If difficult, quicksave before attempting. Alternatively, if Yrliet is remorseful, she can volunteer as an experiment, leading to a short scene. Once accepted, choose, “I'd like to take the Space Marine in a cage.”, “With him, I'd definitely succeed. It would further both our interests.” and then “Losing some mon-keigh won't impede your great work.” At this point, Tervantias gives the Bone Key to unlock Ulfar's cell. Convince Ulfar to join; boasting about being a Rogue Trader worked for our character.

  • Location: Act 3 – Commorragh Anatomical Opera
  • Homeworld: N/A
  • Origin: Adeptus Astartes/Space Wolves
  • Archetype: Soldier

Marazhai

You can recruit Marazhai in Commorragh's Anatomical Opera. Like for Ultar, you need to follow different steps if you want to add this character to your team in Warhammer 40000 Rogue Trader. First of all, after winning an arena match, get ready for the next battle. Return to the Anatomical Opera and check the raised platform behind Tervantias the Archmachinator. You'll spot Marazhai.

Approach him and choose these responses: [Snap the Elucidator shut and address Marazhai]: “I want to talk to you.”, “I saw what happened at the trial. You were tricked.”, “You are trapped. I am trapped. We could help each other.”, “Let's make a deal: you help me take out my enemies, and I shall help you take out yours.” Now, head to the arena for the next battle. After a couple of waves, Marazhai and his pals show up.

This time, choose [Look Marazhai in the eye] “My offer still stands. Will you consider switching sides?” By doing this, Marazhai becomes an ally in this battle. Make sure he survives. Find him in The Pit later, and agree to his plan if you want him at your party. Be careful with responses, as some teammates want him gone, so avoid choices that might lead to his early end.
