He has luck, but he also has smarts and dumbs to use it for. I mean one moment he is almost Sherlock and another he does something soooou smart he only understand that it was stupid after he done it. Is it dumb luck or what? Regardless it only proves that to be a legendary hero one might only need Fortuna and Murhy on their side. Former to save you from any dangerous situations and latter to get you in them in the first place.
over a century in the Service of the Empire of Man and all he lost where a pair of Fingers and countless nights of sleep this in a Universe where everyone and everything is out to kill you with so much overkill that just being in the same Hemishere as the impact might be instant death no wonder Cain is worshiped in some places
yeah, killing two Khorne Chaos Marines and a Slanesh Daemoness singlehandly (at least it looked to them like that) can do that too bad his rep inspires Cain's superiours to "slap a medal on him and find a more creative way to get him killed"
Indeed. He possesses the most unnatural luck. In my opinion it's better when a character is lucky, rather than unstoppable perfect cheat machine. That's why I like Cain - he's no superman, but he gets the job done and cracks jokes in the process.
I recall that moment. It was something about a game cup to Cain's Schola Progenium's sport team.
