Genetors are one of the Holy Orders that make up the Ruling Priesthood of the Adeptus Mechanicus, specializing in genetics. They are very common among the Mechanicus and often accompany Imperial forces involved in the exploration of new worlds. They are dedicated to the study of biology and organic anatomy and are heavily represented among the Mechanicus, possibly due to the Mechanicum’s experiences with mutants on Mars during the Age of Strife. Some sources state that the term ‘Genetor’ is synonymous with the Magos Biologis (sometimes Divisionis Biologis or Divisio Biologis), while some place ‘Magos Biologis’ as a title within the wider Genetor Order, or within the Magi Order.
The Order commonly studies biological systems; those of the xenos in order to defeat them, those of the human in order to improve them. It is one of the few institutions in the Imperium, alongside the Inquisition‘s Ordo Xenos, permitted to study xenos and regularly examine alien species. Members frequently accompany exploration fleets, sometimes even forming their own Genetor explorator teams, to test the populations of rediscovered worlds for mutation outside of the prescribed norms. Genetors often augment their bodies with vat grown muscle,toughened skin, and organic-reinforced bones rather then cybernetics like the Tech-Priests. Companions of Vogel as an excepsion inside Ordo Genetor.
Godel’s philosophical affiliation:
Companions of Vogel– Forced genetic and cybernetic augmentation is needed to strengthen humanity. A young and radical philosophy, as it implies the human form is somehow insufficient alone.
Quest for Knowledge
The ultimate goal of the Cult Mechanicus is to understand the Omnissiah. The communal and individual attempt of Mechanicus believers at this is known as the Quest for Knowledge, and the Cult’s followers view this endeavour as paramount and more important than any other concern. Generally, the Quest is pursued through scientific and exploratory endeavours. The Cult believes that all knowledge already exists, and it is primarily a matter of time before it can be gathered together to complete the Quest. The Mechanicus’ members are therefore disinclined to perform much original research, and they consider it more important to safeguard that knowledge which they already have accrued and gather more by searching for STC templates and similar lost pieces of ancient human technology from the Dark Age of Technology. Some original research does happen within the Adeptus Mechanicus, although the results of such endeavours are strictly quarantined for many years before being disseminated publicly.
In the Quest for Knowledge, members are guided by the Sixteen Universal Laws. The Sixteen Laws, or “lores” are as follows:
- 01. Life is directed motion.
- 02. The spirit is the spark of life.
- 03. Sentience is the ability to learn the value of knowledge.
- 04. Intellect is the understanding of knowledge.
- 05. Sentience is the basest form of Intellect.
- 06. Understanding is the True Path to Comprehension.
- 07. Comprehension is the key to all things.
- 08. The Omnissiah knows all, comprehends all.
- 09. The alien mechanism is a perversion of the True Path.
- 10. The soul is the conscience of sentience.
- 11. A soul can be bestowed only by the Omnissiah.
- 12. The Soulless sentience is the enemy of all life.
- 13. The knowledge of the ancients stands beyond question.
- 14. The Machine Spirit guards the knowledge of the Ancients.
- 15. Flesh is fallible, but ritual honours the Machine Spirit.
- 16. To break with ritual is to break with faith.
