SUBJECT (i): “Speak.”

[SUBJECT (ii) has a quavery voice, low pitched, with an accent placing him as a member of Pentus’ working class]

SUBJECT (ii): “Something’s happened.”

SUBJECT (i): “Evidently. Illuminate me.”

SUBJECT (ii): “One of the linemen got overeager, slipped an Ecclesiarchy initiate one of the Shards.”

SUBJECT (i): [Pause, a breath into the vox unit. Indistinct rustling] “I see. Have efforts been made to recover it?”

SUBJECT (ii): “I dealt with the lineman. He’s not a problem. The Shard… [pause] The initiate must have-”

SUBJECT (i): “I see. [long pause] I must admit this is most disturbing. I had expected greater efforts from you to control your users. This could draw attention, you understand. [SUBJECT (i) sighs into the vox] Are you with anyone?”

SUBJECT (ii): “Just Lem. He’s counting the take from today.”

SUBJECT (i): “Very good.”

[SUBJECT (ii) makes gasping (choking?) noises. A wet gurgling sound continues for 3 seconds.]

SUBJECT (i) [Loudly]: “Lem, I know you are there. Pick up the vox, Lem.”

SUBJECT (iii) (LEM): “Y-yes?”

SUBJECT (i): “Good boy. Congratulations are in order. You’re moving up in the world. I’ve just had a vacancy in my organization and you are just the one to fill it. Keep up the distribution network. But keep your people in line This does not happen again. [pause] I want to hear it, Lem.”

LEM: “It…it does not happen again, sir.”

SUBJECT (i): “Delightful. I’ll be in touch.”

+ + + + + + + DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT: “The Rewards of Tolerance are Treachery and Betrayal”

Acolytes,

I have work for you. A year ago my investigations led me to uncover an agent of the Ruinous Powers in the Hive cities of Pentus. This particular traitor was possessed of sorcerous abilities and mad intent to bring forth onto Pentus a great Warp horror. Myself and a contingent of allies confronted him in the Great Cathedral of The Emperor’s Beneficence on Pentus and destroyed him, his followers, and the half-formed hell-thing he brought forth from the Immaterium. I believed that to be the end of this particular threat.

Lately, however, I have received reports of an alarming number of heretics, mutants, and gibbering lunatics cropping up in the city blocks near the Cathedral. Something clearly lingers on Pentus and I want you to find out what it is. I myself am engaged in work which cannot be interrupted and so I lay upon you this task: Go to Pentus. Find out what lies at the root of these incidents, and take what action is necessary. I expect regular reports of your findings and a full report of your actions to remedy the situation.

In pursuance with your task, I invest upon you the full authority of my name and position, use them as needed to ensure compliance with your investigation and remember that as servants of the Inquisition you answer to none but myself. Use this power wisely and with discretion. Our affairs are secret for a great many good reasons.

In the Light of The Emperor,

Inquisitor Damon Kyrillos
