Yeah, no real-world secret service has ever had this level of power.

 

 

 

What about the East German Stazi? 

 

That said, my group is more like the Monty Python Inquisition…..

Its Stasi for Staatssicherheit, beside their methods and some personel they had nothing in common with Nazis. ;)

But even the Stasi is quite harmless in comparsion. Yes, they might know everything about you, might have infiltrated your circle of friends and but you into prison if you act against the government (or even let you disappear which was quite uncommon). They might even shoot you but thats pretty much all they did "beside" spreading some fear and terror. But even the Stasi had some morals (I know, hard to believe) and they had some strict ranks.

The methods of the stasi would be an example of how an Inquisitor might work while he tries to infiltrate for example the nobility of a hive. The first step is to find some dirty secrets about you to blackmail you (or simply forces you to by his power) to spy on your friends/family. After you brough him some evidence he forces those you have betrayed to do the same and so on… quite a nice snowball-effect. And if someone does not do what he want him to do, let him disapear, let him be a warning to the others. Though the Stasi was feared openly an Inquisitor would perhaps be some more subtle.
