Gödel
“We thank for master of Lathes for his valued contribution to the cause.”

Orlov’s speech:
“My patience is limited unlike my authority. For hundreds of years and ten of thousands of system I have followed the signs. Now things have been set in the motion and historians will recognize coming date as birth of great crusade of righteous justice across the Imperium. At the moment arbitrator forces should prepare against cult activity competing for emerging psykers, any emerging psyker apprehended must be delivered to Collegio Magnitudo at Semis. Extensive agent network is required but channeling of inquisitorial funds to tax factor must remain hidden . Mordechai is provided with 80.000 thrones (burning worth 8 TF) of untraceable origin. Chorda xenos deal imperative to security of the system and supported if necessary.”

Victoria Aldrich

-Mordechai is hijacked and de-indoctrinated by Inquisitor Victoria Aldrich Ordo Hereticus.

-Her retinue covertly extract Judge Mordechai to meet her. She breaks down mind control that has been instilled to him by Aurora Orlov.

Victoria Aldrich speech:
“Aurora Orlov has exterminated more worlds than any inquisitor in several millennia. I suspect that she is for her own reason experimenting with imperial worlds and destroying the evidence afterwards. I arrived too late to Vyn-8 to witness and report her modus operandi. But this time I am not too late.  By authority given to me by the emperor himself I order you Judge Mordechai to infiltrate and assist retinue of the Grandmaster and gather proof so that I may be able to announce writ of heretic upon Grandmaster Aurora Orlov.”

Rotho Klaive

-Mordechai is contacted at precinct-fortress by Inquisitor Master Rotho Klaive Ordo Malleus and informally asked to report psyker and cult activity.

Rotho Klaive’s speech:
“As I am visiting system that has been flagged operative by other inquisitorial cabal, thus my hands are tied. I am here with mere authority of humble scholar and for the sake of intelligence to be gathered. This operation is far raeched but Judge Mordechai’s report fit the pattern of Classified cult activity. As my brethren here will eventually clean the consequences of that with exterminatus I am on path to track and burn cult-leader of multi-sector cult of the Classified Ruinous power. And so I forward informal request by Judge Bulwyn of ?? system precinct-fortress for regular reports of emerging psyker and cult activity through Winterscale realm astropath.”

“Cognomen” is the official Administratum designation in the Calixis Sector for a citizen’s identity card. In a hive, it is one of the only viable means of tracking, taxing and
identifying the citizenry. Cognomen are usually blank iron-grey, punched-metal squares (about the size and shape of a playing card) and designed to be read by data-slates
and cogitator systems. The only feature on the face of a Cognomen is the symbol of the issuing habitat, guild or Adepta whom the citizen serves. In some ways, ownership
of a cognomen is frighteningly important: it represents the only legal proof of identity, a right to work and even to be fed and housed for the average citizen. Its loss might
genuinely mean starvation, abandonment, arrest or even being cast down into the fringes in the blind face of Imperial bureaucracy. There is, of course, a thriving trade in
