Bored at work, so let's make an inquisitor using the creation tablehttps://1d4chan.org/wiki/Inquisitor_Creation_TablesRules: first three roles are the candidates. I roll a 1d3 to determine which roll is chosen, unless majority wish to go with a certain choice over anotherFirst off, our gender. Roll a 1d100
Rolled 61 (1d100)>>54439587Im an idiot
Rolled 46 (1d100)
Rolled 57 (1d100)>>54439594Sadly idiot isn't a gender
Rolled 1 (1d3)
>>54439594We are a lady of the Inquisition, a minority among the Emperors chosen agents, but just as loyal.Now, how old are we?>Roll 1d100
Rolled 31 (1d100)>>54439669
Rolled 99 (1d100)>>54439669SHOW ME OLDY
>>54439696>ask for old>get ancient Thank you based rolls, OP hear my plea.
>>54439713I must admit, it'd be sick as fuck to be one of the oldest members of the inquisition
>>54439724Imagine it! Being the inspiration for every aspiring female inquisitor... UGH! Now it's cringy... fuck, never mind.
>>54439745I mean, she could always just hate all the young female inquisitors. Not running around with a proper amount of skulls, wearing skin tight clothing. Disgraceful
>>54439724>>54439745Nah nah nah, she's not someone an inquisitor wants to be. She's someone every other inquisitor fears. I cannot imagine what horrors she has seen. What horrors she's committed.
>>54439761>>54439764Let's see what we roll for Ordos and other traits before we get into that. She might be some feared and revered woman that has provided inspiration and dread to various people throughout the galaxy through her deeds, or she's a pencil-pusher with a little more authority that no one's bothered to kill or even meet with much.
>>54439761That would work! The one that's lived this long by being practical!"WEAR SOME FUCKING ARMOR! THAT MID RIFT IS GOING TO LOOK SO FUCKING NICE WHEN IT'S SPLIT OPEN AND YOU'RE TRYING TO KEEP YOUR GUTS IN! FUCK!"
>>54439781>>54439764Let's get another roll in here so we can get to that point XD
Rolled 89 (1d100)>>54439796You gotta give us that official Next Roll Please post. We are but blind sheep without it.

>>54439836Mystery Post is Best Post!
>>54439836I'd personally love it if Grandma Inquisitor does not try to look young. You are going to see her battle scars along with her wrinkles, young man.As for specific age, I'm fine with it being a mystery.
Need a tie breaker vote
>>54439863Mystery age, could be 80, could be 1000
>>54439836An old bag of wrinkles concealing an unstoppable will sound pretty good.
>>54439881>>54439855>>54439848No body knows your true age, either because you've kept it a well kept secret or because you yourself have forgotten. The years grow shorter, and blur into a seamless stretch of time that has been your career.Some say you have always been with the inquisition. Some believe you were one of the chosen of Malcador the hero to found it. Others believe you a liar, someone who has spread rumors of you age to appear powerful or dangerous or some other contrived reason.It matters not, your life is a tool of the emperor's will, and not even age has slowed you.>roll a 1d100 to see what Ordo we lie within.

Rolled 26 (1d100)>>54439986Rollin!
>>54439884>>54439855Best of both worlds--she does use rejuvenation treatments to prolong her life, but part of the age mystery is she has been to so many doctors so many times they have lost track, and for the purposes of the adventure, she looks old and is coming up on needing a new treatment

>>54440048Well this is an odd one. We aren't in an Ordos. So should we>Make up something?>or choose a different roll?
>>54440032A mute crippled war hero at the young age of 45, with a loving wife and children. He was badass in the sense that he was more akin to an Administratium sage than an Inquisitor, looking deep into documents, taxes, bills, etc in order to find odd ends where cults and heretics have made errors in the system. He would then dispatch another Inquisitor along with storm troopers in order to bring the emperors jusgement upon the Heretics
>>54440048Eh, I rather just have her as Grandma "'Sterminatus"
>>54440048As long as she looks old by the time this adventure starts, I'm all for it.>>54440062To the galaxy at large, she is part of no ordos. She is just...there. But to the true believers, she is the last true remaining member of the Ordos Chronos.
>>54440062Some bad ass ancient bdsm penal battalion inquisitor, or something
>>54440068Yes. The heretic's ultimate Achilles heel. Tax evasion.
>>54440081This, with the addition that the reason why no one knows for sure which Ordos from which she resides, her record of which has been wiped from the imperium records
>maybe have no title whatsoever?
>>54440121We could roll for it just to be official, but I am fine with her having no huge title. Her name alone will be enough to strike fear in the hearts of her enemies.
>>54440120And the reason no one knows her age is because not even she knows with what she's faced in her long centuries of service.
>no one knows her age>no one knows her name>no one knows which Ordo she's in, or where she currently is>no one even knows if she really exists>but everyone can feel the effects of her actions - every time she chooses to act, she rattles the stars
>>54440121Title: inquisitor of terraI'm no good at this but something along those lines
>>54440120>>54440081Your records are long gone, some clerical error perhaps. Maybe the machinations of an enemy? Or even your own descision. In any case, you are known throughout the inquisition as an unknown.No Ordos or title, and no known age. Rumors have risen and fallen around you. Some say you are the remaining member of a Ordos chronos. Others say you don't exist, and are just a myth used to help show new inquisitors the scope and age of the Inquisition. You've heard an Ordos was established to discover your history.Your work, you duty to mankind and the emperor, matters more though.>Roll a 1d100 for your Philosphy

>>54440145>no one knows her nameI actually thing we should give her a name, some strong old name like Ursula or Beaura

>>54440165>>54440168Holy shit she's a puritan. An ancient, obscure puritan. Ordos are supposed to be caucuses, right? They aren't official, they're just a way of saying what kinda threats to the imperium the inquisitor is interested in dealing with.

Alien mercenaries (Kroot or Orks?), renegades, mutants, abhumans, Adeptus Astartes, alien sponsors/allies (Tau or Eldar?), Chaos forces (Traitor Legions, most suited to the Alpha Legion)Man, our girl is loaded.Any ideas for who our political friend might be, as well as what kind of army she has?
>>54442741*Impressed Whistle*Damn she's something else... I'd have no idea which would be better for her considering everything else as of yet.As for her army though... Abhumans might be interesting. Ratlings, Ogryn, Felinids, Squats maybe... I shiver at the possibilities. Maybe Astartes though... Having her own Space Marines would be pretty sick.
>>54442837Agreed on the space marines army. Her own chapter at her call. We'ed get to roll up a chapter if we went with that.Though giving the felinids some action would be cool. Then again, I just might want cats people to pop up so who knows.
>>54442916Cat would be cool, since they're supposed to be agile and since the ship is meant for speed, maybe this is a sign that She likes to hit hard and fast on her journeys?As for the Space Marines, I'd be all for rolling up a chapter after this.
>>54442741An old friend/lover who is a high lord terraOr maybe a desendent of an old lover or friend who is a high loloWhich ever fits best
>>54443038>An old friendI could get behind that, someone who knows her more than anyone else probably ever will but not nearly as well as he'd like.
>>54443036I mean hard and fast makes sense for her. Long assaults and battles leave more information, and that means more would be known about her.>>54443038>>54443074A noble lord, maybe of an entire segmentum would likely be able to live almost as long as she has.Maybe he was around when she was just a young whatever trying to make it in a damaged imperium.
>>54443119That'd be cool, I could see it, maybe he met her during her first few missions. She helped clean house when he didn't even know the rooms where dusty and he's been doing his best to support her ever since. Maybe she's done it quite a few times, saved his ass from assassinations and political plots. They just kind of gravitated towards one another and have been having each others back since way back when.
>>54443119Well what time was she first around? Heresy?
>>54443176Old friends, older the much of the modern imperium. He knows much about her, but has never spoken of her to anyone.No body knows they're close perhaps, but she makes sure to set time aside to visit and check in with him, and is always looking out for him.
>>54443207her age is unknown, but she is for sur eover 250 years old.I like to think she was around for the horus heresy, but the point is its a mystery, so we don't fully know perhaps.
>>54443207No one knows... Lord only knows lawl and he's not spilling the beans
>>54443271I like to think he ha sa better idea, but no 100% concrete ideas. His ideas would just be closer to the mark.
>>54442916>grandma inquisitor temperate puritan looking upon sickening furry mutants with anything but mild scorn and passive aggressive racismI vote for her own astartes, alpha legion, or harlequins helping her set the time continuum right or something
>>54443433>Even the mutant has its place, and abhumans are above mere mutants. And are still human. They hold their place like all of humanity does.Alpha legion is chaos no?And harlequins, hmm. Eldar would be interesting but idk about them. They'ed be pretty arrogant and manipulative for her to deal with.
This is probably one of the best /tg/ has ever madeAn InquisitorNo name or many worn lightly and no title beyond her job.No exact age but everyone remembers her always looking old, even ancients like Dreadnaught remember her looking old even when they were young.Belongs to no ordo.Knows many people in high positions, even people she shouldn't and knows things they would rather she didn't.Is she psychic? People thinks so but with little evidence. Maybe she is and is good at hiding it, maybe she isn't and is good at faking it.Gets along better with mutants and abhumans and psykers than most of her kind as they are afflicted humans but human nevertheless.I'm guessing that if asked to describe her people would say of medium build, average height, grey hair and no distinguishing features. Her voice is soft and either has no accent at all or a soft one that nobody can place.Her deeds are many but the nature of them are hidden. Just an entire datastack in the Inquisition HQ that nobody can access.Deamons call her Nameless and hold her in contempt, to them names are all and she has shed hers like a grey old serpent shedding it's skin.Can call in favours from Space Marines. What chapter are they from? Nobody will say and their armour is devoid of markings and their helmets do not come off.The Harlequins have been see in her presence and they call her the many yeared woman, perhaps as a friendly name, perhaps as mockery, perhaps as an honorific. Who can say with the Cosmic Jesters. But they have spoken to her in respectful High Gothic and she has answered them in their own High Tongue.
>>54443471Alpha legion is """chaos""" insofar as no one is sure whether they actually are or they've been merely pretending the whole time to kill chaos from the inside. Or anything much else about them, really.Harlequins are noted for not being nearly as arrogant or haughty as other elder and regularly work with the imperium to fuck up chaos.
>>54443517I support this immensely so.Idk why, but I imagine Ana Amari as a good reference to how she looks.And the amount of respect and power she hold in just her none existent name is amazing.I like to think demons and sorcerers have tried to steal her name from within her mind, and found nothing except a smirking old woman.>>54443519Ah alrighty
>>54443517So with this stuff in mind possiblkyWhat is her goal? As in, why does she do what she does? She may not have an ordo, but there must be something that she is working for or against. Is she the last surviving membe rof Ordos Chronos and is trying to discover where they went?Is she Enigmatic figure in the inquisition seeking to guide it towarda a certain goal?If she is as ancient as we think, does she hate the religious focus of the Imperium now? does she like it? is it merely a tool to keep the empire together, or does she think it's what's tearing it apart?
>>54443517I suggest she always has a few squads of Deathwatch Blackshields hanging around. They're actual Inquisition agents, and for well with her "leave no trace of personal history".I think she'd find a kinship with them, to be honest.What flavor of outcast should it be? Roll>edgy anti-social outcasts, their biggest complaint is there isn't enough corners of the ship in which to brood alone, they are prickly even to the Inquisitor>jaded quiet husks who stopped shouldering their baggage ages ago, they are terse, professional, oddly impassionate, unmoving>total bros, those kids in highschool who make a social clique because they don't fit in elsewhere, treats the Inquisitor like the teacher who let's them bum in the classroom during lunch>The Expendables (especially the second movie), a colorful cast of different personalities with nothing left to loose but an opportunity for some badasseryRoll a d4!
>>54443578I keep imagining her as a caring grandmother teaching some kid on the street the values of the Emperor God damn this thread is reminding me of my grandmother.
>>54443794She should remind everyone of the grandmother.>>54443785And she has her own private army, so perhaps we should roll up a chapter?
>>54443771Her goal is that of the Inquisition or at least what it should be; safeguarding the Imperium from threats inside and out. That is the one consistent fact anyone can pin down. She is pro-Imperium. Just like every other Inquisitor.She may or may not know where the Ordo Chronos went. She had contacts in it, it is known/strongly suspected. But she has contacts everywhere. If she knows where they are no she isn't telling.She is indifferent to religion one way or the other. People believe stuff and she seems to have no problem with that so long as it isn't Chaos. Does she have a faith? Who even knows.
Rolled 2 (1d4)>>54443785Here you go>>54443794>because her acolytes think of her as a grandmother, they become immensly bothered when they go to talk with her lord friend>turns out when she was younger, she was incredibly attractive and every male inquisitor and noble wanted to bang her>her lord friend constantly talks about the old days,how beautiful she was, and how hard he wanted to fuck her in painstaking detailIt's not as bad as finding out your sweet grandmother was a slut and had fucked most of her hometown, but its still enough to make someone uncomfortable
>>54443949Well, Blackshields are a bit of a rarity, but even a dozen would pretty much be a private army, being two or three whole Deathwatch squads. Honestly a platoon of Blackshields and a small company of supporting Scions would be in order.We shouldn't do more than the most general rolls for Blackshields, seeing as it's a very piecemail unit. Really it's the perfect unit for "gee i wish we bad a demolitions expert" and one of them steps out of the crowd saying "By the throne, I'm you're man" A bit of a tool kit or Swiss army knife unit, or in this case Swiss army claymore.
Somehow at some point I imagined pic related.
>>54443985>Rolled 2 (1d4)>jaded quiet husks who stopped shouldering their baggage ages ago, they are terse, professional, oddly impassionate, unmovingOur Blackguard platoon are professional beyond professional, each having a past as murky and ill-remembered as their own pasts. Their quiet, tempered attitude is particularly unobstructive, which is fortunate for the purposes of being on a small fast attack ship.They are a band without a past, without connections, but not without hope. Under the command of the Inquisitor there is a sense of belonging, something almost breaching upon community. The very things they seek to reclaim but know they have forsaken. She sees the thing that they and many in the Imperium fail to see, their humanity.And bakes them lots of cookies and homemade hearty meals
>>54444221*each having a past as murky an ill-remembered as that of the Inquisitor.
>>54444221I like how she uses her grandmotherlyness as an effective tool XDAnd I'm game with her private army being just a bunch of rando marines from random chapters coming together to form a sorta family.
>>54444483If she is to have an army, it could be a scion level company of... lost souls, which draws on being "exotic". It wouldn't be proper to call them IG since they also draw from Costodes, AdMech, and various survivors met along the way. The only thing they have in common are a past of being battletested remnants of much larger units that have been decimated and now don't have a larger structure to go back to. Some are even loyalist turncoats who abandoned traitorous units.Whatever their painful past, the 134th Amalagated Inquisition Attache, or The Lost Boys Brigade, feels a kinship with eachother and uses their diversity as a strength, breeding out unit specialization in exchange for flexibility. A flexibility that bodes well with their moderate Puritan commander.I'm going to say they're the high flying Expendables types, and this puts them at odds with the pensive Blackshields.Also, for psychological misdirection, these Blackshields call themselves " The Third Platoon", even though the are the only platoon of their Space Marine contingency.
>>54444786Or they're the third platoon because 2 platoons worth of Blackshields have served with the Inquisitor previously and rather than remember them as individuals (which goes against the point of being Blackshields) they are remembered collectively as "The First" and "The Second"
>>54444786I'm liking this idea. So her Army are those broken few who would have been forgotten or placed aside. Those who had lost their homes or brothers. Those who needed guidance and a new collective group to call their own. It makes sense, cause she has way less of an impact this way on the galaxy, and thus, remains even more enigmatic
>>54445041She should have names for them, maybe in secret. Knits them scarves.Would there be Xenos in her army? I'm thinking likely not, but sanctioned Xenos are a thing and they can be useful
>>54445110maybe some EX-Corsair Eldar who lost their ship and are left as little more than a skeleton crew in a small vessel come by periodically to help. And the Inquisitor darns their socks and complains about how thin they are, of course.
>>54445041How about this, since there's not much chance of a party wipe, with guys filtering in and out, every once in a great while the old timer marines look around at eachother and realize that none of the members who were "originals" when they joined are still around. So as you said, to pay tribute to those who have gone before they rename themselves. Her unit has been around so long that it's on the third iteration of piece by piece replacement. It's a Ship of Theseus, for sure.>>54445110What's her nickname for her current group of Marines?
>>54445077Yes, exactly! A bit like the old grandma who has a whole household of foster kids.However, she has to keep a tight grip on the unit, as their diverse backgrounds and unit doctrines can cause friction and tempers to flare. One of the continuing narratives is how she guides her unit to put aside past differences and see eachother as brothers in arms, more capable together than they ever were as broken units.
>>54445366Little Lads.As in she will set her Little Lads on you if you keep up that tone of voice young man.
>>54445560>tfw she refers to you as that>tfw you don't have it in you to tell her to stop>tfw she wouldn't anyways>tfw it scares people and you're glad it does, but wish it doesn't>tfw you're a Little Lad
This is by far the best thing /tg/ has ever rolled up. Can we agree she looks like pic related?
>>54443517This is a new level Mary Sue fagottry, even for /tg/ Bravo>we should call her Mary Sue!!
>>54445915Blame the dice, man.
>>54443785Which inquisitor has "a couple of blackshield squads hanging around" There are on average 200 marines in the deathwatch and she has "a couple SQUADS hanging around" ...Mary Sue
>>54445560>>54445639Whatever we choose, I think she/others just refer to them as "my/her boys."
>>54445639>>54445928Ehm, the dice just say basic things, you faggots are making it over the top.. really liked the idea in the beginning and suddenly she has >a couple of squads of black shields>not even demons know her name!! >works with marines that have no marking and the helmets don't come off>best friends with mutants>loved by harlequins, probably even visited the black library you guys! Cringe
I'm glad to see this thread is still up, and this grandma's rolls have still really worked for her character. >>54445962>>54445915Can an old lady who'd most likely be a comedically over the top side character in a Dark Heresy campaign really be considered a Mary Sue?
The Inquisitor>>54446070I figured most of those were competing ideas, not all to be applied at once, but hey.I do like the idea of her personal army being heavy on abhumans and mutants with useful mutations.
>>54445962>wrong.jpegYou're off by a whole factor of magnitude and a half, how embarrassing. There's 200 Deathguard in a single fortress, not total, and there's at least (and probably much more) over a dozen fortresses. At least one or two chapters worth, probably more.Do you think there would be an entire RPG system dedicated to a 200 man force, and why would they be in Sector Podunk where the rpg was set.Do a little research and you'll see having a bakers dozen isn't "Mary Sue". This isn't a personal entourage of Gray Knights, then you'd have the right to say Mary Sue.>>54446070>nofunallowed.jpegSure it should be toned down, but editing comes after the first draft. Why are you even here?
Admittingly this character is pretty Mary Sue, but there's a good place for such characters, as foils and supporting characters. And with how "dark and mysterious" as she is, I think she's perfect as a protagonist's boss's boss. The monolithic, unknowable top dog who is impossible to level with or upstage, until the main hero grows a bit. The hero both gets her clout by proxy and lives in a shadow of greatness, all at the same time.If she was the main character, it would be insufferable to follow her. But I would definitely rock Inquisitor Edith as the Lord Inquisitor you report to in a Dark Heresy game.
>>54448981She sort of strikes me as like Inquisitor Quixos.
Op backAnd yeah this is merely the first draft. Also me agreeing to a lot of that was my being swept up in it.I think we should sit down and filter some shit out, so we can have a good character that isn't a Mary sue
So effectivly whatI think the essence of what we want is:She's an Old woamn, commonly compared to a grandmother like figure as well as holding plenty of rumors, known history, and such to make many fear her.She possibly holds some respect with a none imperium body or group.Her army are the outcasts of imperium society, most likely being Abhumns and mutants who can serve her, as well as maybe the odd space marine. This army focuses on using its various strengths and talents as a flexible army, rather then a specilized one, to better help the Inquisitors plans and missions.>>54443961^I like the above post in terms of motivations and her feeling son certain thing.Anyone have any details they think should be changed or add to her? We have to be sure to trim unnessasary thing. While the deathwatch is cool, I agree that it's a little over the top,
>>54451199I think working some of this >>54440302 in with this >>54443961 might be nice. Id like it if her main focus is trying to find them. Investigating every sign and clue for the Ordo Chronos.
>>54451270I personally dig the Ordos Chronos route. Plenty of room to investigate it, and having a unique outlook could help her with that.
>>54440068It's a bit more nuanced than simply spotting errors. I remember one story of a member of an Inquisitor's retinue finding criminals not because of what wasn't out of order, but because everything was in order. The Administratum never has records that match up so perfectly with what's delivered, not unless someone wants them to look ordered so as to avoid attention.
>>54451316I really like it too and the idea that she needs to be fast to find any trace before it might be gone would fit in well with her hard and fast tactics and flexible army. Felinids for speed, Ogryn for strength, Ratlings for small spaces that she keeps in line with her amazing cooking. Creme of the crop Navigators for her fast as hell ship. It's all gooda as far as I'm concerned.
>>54451449Abhumanity seems like her MO, since mutants seems going a bit far
>Inquisitor Edith>Ordo Affiliation: CLASSIFIED >Override: Clearance: Omega-Black-Emperior >Override: Accepted:>Ordo Affiliation: Redacted
>>54451636Is there a difference between classified and Redacted?
>>54451801Redacted means the info is removed permanently you inexperienced goon...
>>54451801Classified means you aren't allowed to know.Redacted means someone has removed or obscured the information.
>>54451825ah I thought so okay,Is Edith gonna be what we go with for her name? Or are we gonna go with more of a title people have givben her due to not knwoing anything about her?
>>54451863It is what she answers to.If Edith is not a common name on a planet she is working on she will find the nearest common equivalent.
>>54451901Makes sense. So she likely has a massively long list of names that are similar from all over the imperium.Her army is a collection of Abhuman forces. How large would this army be? sinc eit's personal, I would imagine at most a smallish medium force.
>>54452382First we have determine how big her ship is. If we are going in small and fast then the Cobra Destroyer is the smallest warp capable war ship at 1.5 km. Crew size 15,000.So maybe she could have as many as a few hundred at most plus all equipment and supplies. Less army the longer supplies last so maybe lessAlso it safe to assume she modified the ship considerable for maximum speed at the expense of all else.
>>54452580from what her rolls set up, she has a herald. Though the rolls ar emore guidelines so I could see her having a fast war ship over an unarmed Herald.I'd imagine she'd focus on a smaller more elite and equipped force to help her handle her missions. She uses her abhumans to the best of their unique abilities, as their plac ein humanities destiny warranted their existence for a reason.I like to think her personal retinue is a collection of one of each abhuman, a sorta super squad that covers everything needed to be covered.
>>54452580It would need to be further modified though, no weapons and munitions. Which should free up more space for storage and/or troops.
>>54444786>CustodesYeah, no. That's a bit much.
>>54453043agreed. Way to much
Alright, Dark Heresy campaign. What missions will Inquisitor Edith (lovingly referred to as Grandma Inquisitor) send her space marines/mutants/whatever the fuck she has on?>Search an entire section of a Hive City for any sign of heretics, just to keep them in tip top shape.>Infiltrate a chaos controlled city in search for a mysterious artifact that may or may not be altering the passage of time inside the city.>Break down a mutant uprising while getting as many mutants as possible to repent for their sins and dedicate the rest of their short, pitiful lives to serving the Emperor
>>54453345>Infiltrate a chaos controlled city in search for a mysterious artifact that may or may not be altering the passage of time inside the city.More than likely this followed by this >Break down a mutant uprising while getting as many mutants as possible to repent for their sins and dedicate the rest of their short, pitiful lives to serving the EmperorAnd now with her newly marshaled forces>Search an entire section of a Hive City for any sign of heretics, just to keep them in tip top shape.And if their are any, well she has new cannon fodder and meat shields to throw at the enemy.I think anything Time Related should take priority in her book, so much so that she'd abandon/expedite/pass a mission along to someone else to investigate.
>>54453345>>Search an entire section of a Hive City for any sign of heretics, just to keep them in tip top shape.Gotta keep the kiddies fit for when we really need to do some work, and the local governor could use some help.
>Inquisitor Interrogating a Abhuman (Felinid or something) proven to be connected with "Edith"I: Alright abhuman. By my the emperor's name, tell me what you and 'Edith' were doing on that planetA: Well Lord Fargo, we-I: What did you call me?A: Lord Fargo, Nanna said that we may come into contact with you, so she had us read up on your and your agents.I: Heh, I suppose you were disappointed with how little there was?A: on the contrary, we know a lot about you Varian Fargo. You should really look into that leak in your munitions department, they're a gossipy bunch when enough alcohol is involved.I: .....
>>54454112There's nothing more powerful than a grandmother's gossip.
What else needs to be determined about her?
>>54453043>>54453043Derp, you're right. I meant Arbites. She has some hardass space cops laying down done hot dickings and imperial law.
>>54456346I think we should decide on just a single thing a focus on that, in order to better focus and refine her. She can't have everything at her disposal
I say she sticks with abhumans. I like the idea that she is using a resource the imperium usually overlooks to its fullest advantage, while also reinforcing her philosophy that all humans have a place in humanities march to perfection, they must merely be allowed to find it.
>>54458033Abhumans, mutants - how about just the dregs of society in general? Nothing shiny or high ranking.
>>54458363All who have been forgotten are remembered by her, for she sees in them those draped a gold cannot, the power of humanity within them.
