  1. Servant of Dante

    Of Great and Terrible Things

    Estelia spends much of the Feast of the Emperor's Ascension in the chapel, feeling a bit more devout than normal due to the danger of their upcoming mission. She leaves a devotional candle near the room's rear, to guide her back to safety, either physically or spiritually if she were to be killed, and lights one for Ariel as well. As for equipment, Estellia searched for the following (if we get the +30 to use for downtime we can assume all into the Refractor Field (otherwise I need a 1 lol) : Refractor Field (-30 vs 30 Inf Roll: 74 as one might expect) Photo Visor (-10 vs 30 Inf Roll: 62 ) Flak Cloak (-10 vs 30 Inf Roll: 48 ) ((no successes)) Estelia decides she will bring the helmet of her Flak armor along regardless, but keep to her armored bodyglove otherwise as Ariel suggested.

    Estelia shakes her head after thinking for a moment, “not unless Ariel has anything in mind,” she makes the sign of the Aquila, “thank you, Sister Inellia.” If nothing else is mentioned, Estelia goes to don her flak Armor, thinking it’s black exterior should be sufficient camouflage (although the gold embossing on the front will stick out). As she checks her equipment and ammunition, the Novice thinks on what the Sister had said. She supposed it was true that any they were forced to kill in their mission were serving the Emperor through their . . . forced cooperation, but since that also meant their position had to be filled, it wouldn’t do to have to kill anyone who’s death could have been avoided through proper diligence on her and Ariel’s part. Before leaving her domicile, Estelia prays briefly before the icon in the room, as she had been taught to do at the Convent. It was the first time she had really felt need for a pre-battle litany, which both excited and scared her. But those were thoughts for one weak of faith. There was no place for extremes of emotion in battle, except for the love of the Emperor and disdain for his enemies, or so she had been told.

    Estelia looks distinctly uncomfortable at the thought of having to trick an adept of the Mechanicus, “A short range jammer sounds like a good idea, as long as it doesn’t interfere with the relay in a way that reveals our presence.” After a short pause she continues, “I hope we don’t have to kill anyone, sounds like they’re just doing their jobs as Imperial citizens should”

    “Hum I hadn’t thought about physical locks. Should we try and find something to help deal with that? Although, I’m not sure a lockpick would be of much use if none of us know how to use one. Hopefully there aren’t too many locks like that.”

    “Well, taking Lax would certainly save us the time of searching for another, and we don’t have to wonder about their trustworthiness. I agree that the tunnels seem best, if we can find our way.” By now Estelia was getting used to not really knowing what what going on, and giving her thoughts anyway. It was a lot like whenever she walked in on some deep-sounding theological discussion. In the same way as that circumstance Ariel seemed rather more sure of herself so the Novice has fallen into looking to her to make sure she didn’t say anything too stupid.

    "A reclimator?" To Estelia the word sounded more like a rank withing the Mechanicus than anything else. In any case, the Novice had begun to grow restless with the planning session, "If it would let us bypass the exterior guards and avoid causing a commotion in the streets, would it be better to approach from the tunnels? Or would these reclimators be more troublesome to deal with than any of that?"

    ((Since Estelia had already given Lax a basic rundown on the situation when she asked about who might be guarding the relay station, she'll tell him that these are the plans to that station)) "I can't think of anyone we can realistically trust to ask that might know more than you about this. Is there anything else we should look into before moving toward the relay station? I think it likely would be best to see what we can find there before investigating any persons directly"

    ((Red is a very Sisters color anyway)) ”That would make sense. Maybe the vox code we’re tracking belongs to Bertrand or Tyruss.” Looking back to the plans, “Would you like me to go find Lax? He might be able to make more sense of these.” ((assuming no objections Estelia leaves to find Lax))

    Estelia wasn't sure what she had expected, but she supposed what lay before them made sense. She hadn't even considered how they were going to get any information from the relay station cogitators, that prayer book looked complicated, and the Mechanicus cog on the front wasn't helping . . . "First, I think we should also find out what the Order of the Watchful Eye has sent us in response to our message." Esteilla shudders briefly at the thought of that psyker they had been forced to speak with.

    When Estelia wakes up she lays in bed for a moment to gather herself, then moves to kneel before the small shrine set up on a table in her domicile to pray. It occurred to her that this would be her first Feast of the Emperor’s Ascension away from the Schola and Convent. What would they do to celebrate? She supposed they had the chapel, they would have to work out some decorations and ceremonies for the occasion. Father Thorne could likely help with that, at least they were not without a proper priest. ((Maybe the Father stays behind in order to be able to prepare for the Feast properly )) After she finishes her prayers, Estelia checks her equipment (she cleaned it each night so there was no need for a though servicing in the morning), and dons her bodyglove and robe, cleaning her face and teeth before moving out into the rest of the manor. Just before she leaves the door, she straps the small autopistol in its discrete holster along the side of her torso, where her arm and the copious folds of her garment would hide it. The Novice takes breakfast in the kitchen, as usual, grabbing whatever caught her fancy and seemed like she could prepare without hurting anyone. Some sort of bread product usually, since that didn’t require any preparation. After breakfast she took a few minutes to stretch her muscles and make sure her mind was alert. ————— Estelia wasn’t sure what she had expected when Inellia summoned them, but she hadn’t expected to be asked what she wanted to be told. As usual when she wasn’t doing something, Estelia looked to Ariel, then Father Thorne, to see what they would answer.

    "I was was trying to not say too much . . . " Estelia looks a bit upset, "but she asked both of us so I answered." To no one in particular she mumbles, "Last I checked you were a Novice Cantus too."

    “Besides, we’re unreliable assets at best, right? By supplying this information you give us a better chance of not making a mess for you, or Sister Inellia, to clean up later.” Estelia knew that maybe she should have been silent, but the Inquisitor has asked, and she didn’t want the Inquisitrix to think she couldn’t speak for herself at all. It might make Ariel look like she didn’t have their support.

    Estelia made the sign of the Aquila along with Ariel, standing beside her and letting her speak for them. She wondered if the Inquisitrix would have the kind of information they needed on hand, or if she would have to find it, or if she would even help them at all. Clearly Inellia was one of her more senior agents but she wasn’t sure what their standing was with the mysterious Inquisitor.

    There were times to poke the Hrud and there were times to shut up and let Ariel talk (or not talk, the more stoic Novice did a lot of that). This was definitely a time for the latter. Estelia adjusted her robe, hoping she looked presentable and not like she was terrified. What if the Inquisitrix was a psyker! She knew that many Inquisitors were, even in the Ordo Hereticus. At least Father Thorne was present too, though it had been Ariel’s idea to contact their ‘benefactor’

    “Of course” After she listened to the other Novice’s plan in the hallway, Estelia nodded, ”the station will be guarded by Consortium guards it seems, and it sounds like we’ll either have to go through or around them. If we get the plans of the building we may be able to sneak in, but even if we have to force our way through it’s possible whoever we’re looking for isn’t even aware which relay station their signal is routed through. I agree further prodding will only make it more likely that we reveal ourselves. As for whether to ask the Inquisitrix if she can acquire the floor plans for us, I’ll leave that decision up to you. You’re the thoughtful one between us, after all. ”If it comes to it, sometimes it is the duty of an Imperial servant to die, even if they don’t know why and even at the hands of another Imperial servant.“
