[Pict recording static only, Imperial jamming technology [(?)] pict switches to non standard imperial pic frequency]

[picture returns after 1 minute 12 seconds]

[a comfortable room illuminated only by a large fire, one man [subject (i)] sits with his back to the pict-source, facing the fire. A second man [Subject (ii)] walks from a side table to a seat near subject (i). Subject (ii) positevely identified as Inquisitor Talexus Keyek, Ordo Malleus]

KEYEK: And you? Working with the Tau i hear 

VOICE (i): I take out anything that destabilises the Imperium but with anything I can lay my hands on, Imperial or not, If it will work with or for me, I will use it. If not it dies. 

KEYEK: Then we are not so different in our methods, knowlege is power. If i must harness the power of chaos, so be it

VOICE (i): Chaos corrupts, you will not serve the Imperium if you are corrupted 

KEYEK: I do my duty, I serve the Imperium as long as I spare her from the warp

VOICE (i): And by dragging yourself and those around you into it, you do no such thing. The warp is Dangerous! I'll have as little to do with it as possible.

KEYEK: You are rite indeed to fear the warp but because of its danger, all the more reason to fight it.

VOICE (i): Daemons are to be banished not summoned!

KEYEK: I havn't summoned one yet

VOICE (i): There very presence on this plane offends the emperor, endagers the Imperium and serves no good purpose, you know this. They are not foolish creatures. Do not think to use them or they will use you

[Keyek stands, turns towards pict-source]

KEYEK: And you? Accepting the help of Xenos, bringing them into his holy realm.

VOICE (i): Only when a greater threat is to be destroyed. Any Xenos breed befriended is one less enemy for the Imperium, one less enemy for the Imperium means more resources to pour against those that threaten us. They will keep for when we have dealt with such things as the Tyranid scourge.

KEYEK: No Xenos can be trusted. Seers and degenerates and invaders the lot of them. They will turn on us as quickly as you turn on them.

[Subject (i) stands, anger detected in vocal patterns.]

Voice (i): As will the forces you so foolishly play with. I do not trust them to think past there own goals but i believe i am wise enough to work with them when their goals align with ours. I have no aim to turn on them unless they do so first. They show treachery, they will suffer. Why create conflict where none exists. We are in a position to know that the Imperium needs all it can get. There are bigger battles to fight, the chaos forces raiding and pillaging for one.

[Keyek sits, lifting a small glass to his lips, unknown substance [liquid (i)] after 4 seconds he smiles and laughs]

KEYEK: Hah! Thinking about joining the Malleus are you! I dare say we need more of our numbers, Inquisitor Kade was killed last month denying a daemon sect on Sentinel and there has been no word from Inquistor Thrace for some time. Puritanical fools to the man but noble souls none the less. You cannot fight what you do not understand, a radical i may be but i am better equiped to fight than a puritan. A man can fight with faith alone but a gun helps him more

[Subject (i) sits, amusment detected in vocal patterns]

VOICE (i): I've yet to see a puritan unwilling to take the holy fire to the enemies of man

KEYEK: And i've yet to see a daemon that didn't die to my blade, Miasma

[Keyek's right hand gently pats a simple leather bound sword aprox 30" long. Sword later positively identified as the Daemon Sword 'Miasma']

VOICE (i): Why do you delve so much into lore you know will corrupt you?

KEYEK: Because it is necessary

VOICE (i): Think of those even from our own Order who have fallen, doing what they thought was right even as they commited attrosities in his holy relm

KEYEK: You speak of Quixos?

VOICE (i): And Eisenhorn and others like them. The archives are filled with names like that.

[Keyek laughs and drinks more of liquid (i)]

KEYEK: Hah! If you thought me that far gone would you be sitting drinking Amasec with me

[liquid (i) positevely identified as amasec]

VOICE (i): Probably not

KEYEK: Both of them were fools who thought they could overcome the power of chaos. I merely channel it, much as you do with your Xenos.

VOICE (i): More fool you. Who is to say they didn't start off like you.

KEYEK: Yet i still stand where without this power i would be dead with naught but my faith

VOICE (i): Better to die in his service than live in treachery, not that i plan on dieing any time soon.

KEYEK: You fail to understand the true power of chaos, its true nature. That nature is conflict, chaos is more than willing to fight amongst itself, I simply give it direction. By forcing it to fight itself it weakens

VOICE (i): I wonder if it is possible to truly win against chaos

KEYEK: Even if it is not, douse that not make the struggle more noble. To not give in to the darkness but to fight against it. The struggle is part of being human and through our sacrifices the Imperium still stands.

[Silence for 59 seconds]

VOICE (i): Which sacrifices in particular? The human Kind?

KEYEK: But of cource, if a general was to kill 4 million men in defence of a planet the Imperium triumphs from that sacrifice.

VOICE (i): And yet that is still 4 million less men for the next battle. There are enough foolish generals around, pompous idiots with no qualification for command other than bootlicking their way to the top.

KEYEK: True. The Imperium has equal amounts of sycophancy and talent it seems

VOICE (i): More so, it seems somtimes, hah!

[Subject (i) laughs]

RECOVERED BY: Magos Anicos

DATE: 899. M41



[The data slate this information was recovered from was severly damaged by what appears to be an electrical blast, cause unknown. Although recovery took place the data is, in places highly fragmented, somtimes with whole days missing. However i have filed the data because it hints at a dire theat to the Calixis Sector. I remain, as allways, your humble servant. Savant Kellogine]

112th 898. M41

I have come to Solomon's Gloriana with little hope of success, yet while there is still chance i will search. Brackus tells me that a plague of sourts has broken out amoung the lower reaches of the hive and i would trust his word. Small chance that this plague is caused by my obsetion, yet one who lives as i do learns to trust his Interogators. [no mention of an Interogator 'Brackus' in Calixian recods] I have, for the moment berthed myself and my followers in the uper hive, using what little connections i have in this festering, Emperor forgotten place.

113th 898. M41

Today i started my investigation. An Inquisitor cant walk freely around an under hive, he would gather too much unwated notise so i have sent my able followers Gruss and Malia [both common names on Malfi] who are more adept at subtlety than I. My Savant Orla is serching the archives. I need to be watchfull of her, i fear she may be too watchfull of me. I myself am comuning with some friends amongst the Noble classes but information is frustratingly hard to come by. No word yet from Brackus. He should have made contact by now

114th 898. M41


115th 898. M41

Success [DATA FRAGMENT] but Brackus [DATA FRAGMENT] the daemon [DATA FRAGMENT] now is my time.

116th 898. M41

Orla has uncovered troubling information about the quary i seek. The daemon was brought here from Scintilla by a Rogue Trader. Although i would not be suprised if that scoundrel Benjamin Black is behind this. Him and his master Inquisitor have had a vested intrest in the daemon for too long. First i though he, like me, wished only to destroy it but now my confidence in them has shrunk to nothing. If they are responcible then why move it. Are they trying to harness the plague the daemon summons. If only i had proof of this, if only i had the identity of Black's master. It seams that once i am finished here i will have new work to do.

117th 898. M41

  The plague has worsened. It seams any contact at all with the lower hive is now a death sentance, a slow death sentance. I have had Gruss and Malia quarentined and Brackus' remains incinerated with holy fire. The under hive has been sealed off but i must go down there to stop the daemon i will [DATA FRAGMENT]

118th 898. M41

So they lost controll of their pet and [DATA FRAGMENT] Orla is dead, they came for her when they slept. They would have killed me too if i had not heared her Psykic shreak, they will [DATA FRAGMENT]

119th 898. M41

I have found how to stop them. Orla had found the key, Emperor guid her soul. But i fear my enemies plans are also set in motion. The plague has lessend almost at once. How have they contained the beast.

120th 898. M41

I am alone, my faithfull friends and allies have been killed and i have decovered the nature of my enemies plan. On Solomon, hidden by Harlock of all people, is a method forgoten for making the most hideouse of artifacts. Daemon Weapons. I fear i must stop them, alone if i must.

[All further data lost]

[Inquisitor believed to be Inquisitor Harpier [unconfirmed source] who disapeared between 800 and 900 M41.]

To Lord Inquisitor Markus Aldos, a communiqué

 Carried by Unknown Astropath (Calixis) via meme-wave 41~c.654

double intra

Origin: Samson IV, Hazeroth Sub 83256 origin date: 156. 943. M41

Recieved: Scintilla, Golgenna Reach Sub 84757 reception date. 156. 943. M41

(redundent copy deleated from buffer)


Author: Inquisitor Talexus Keyek, Ordo Malleus


Greatings Lord

By his holy light and the great grace of the inquisition ect ect

Long has it been since my last communiqué, i'm sure my lord has not forgotten the task that he set for me, to track down and find the unknown Inquisitor responcible for the Solomon Incident and to find and destroy the daemon weapon thought created there. I am sorry for the...delay in my responce but i have not spent the last fifteen years being idle. Howether i proudly tell you two things. 1.) The rumours of my demise are, as you have no doubt no realised, quite false and 2.) i have completed the task you entrusted to me. You will ofcource recieve my full report upon my retern to Scintilla. I admit to you know that i have missed Scintilla. Despit its appearence it is my home as you well know my lord. However i have taken the oportunity to send this initial report of my success by my own personal Astropath. Now to the point. The most monumental news i can bring to you (appart from my own healph) is the identity of our own Rogue Inquisitor. Inquisitor Harpier Ordo Malleus. I know this may give you cause to question me but my evidence is quite firm. He worked through a proxy, again another Inquisitor, to create the Solomon Incident and to fake his own death. His treachery to the Holy Order and to the God-Emperor was total. By the time i tracked him down to Samson IV he had created 12 daemon weapons. I believe he intended to creat some sort of army of daemon enhanced soldiers. However me and my agents have sytematicly destroyed his cult and destroyed 11 of his foul artifacts. The only one not to be found was the original sword caging the plague daemon 'Miazma'. Where this weapon is i have no idea. I have however completed the task you have set for me. Harpier, his proxy and the rogue trader Benjamin Black have all been executed.

Your Humble servant and Friend
