Champions of Narcissus

A Cell Assembles

Taken from their homes, jobs, and families; Wolfe, Lupus, and “Bones” were gathered upon a great ship by mysterious men. For what, they didn’t know. On board the ship, they met up with Remith and Bael, two other people taken on board by the mysterious men.

The crew of the ship informed them that they had landed on the hive planet of Callysta of the Atreides sub-system. As they got off, they were met by an old man, Drake Eisen. Drake led them to an office building where, after going through a maze of maintenance paths, they met Inquisitor Cain Rodriguez.

Rodriguez asked if they would join him in purging the sector of heretics. He asked if they would join the Inquisition. They accepted, and Cain asked several questions of them. Remith answered wrongly and was executed by Eisen, who it is revealed, is one of Rodriguez’s Interrogators.

Eisen takes them back to the spaceport where they get on another ship headed towards the planet Udejo Quartus of the Caliph Reach sub-sector, a ninety day standard journey.

On board, Eisen trained them in the methods of the Inquisition. As they neared the spaceport in the city of Acreage Eisen gave this new cell one last warning, “You are of the Inquisition, not the Adeptus Arbites. It is not your job to level this town to the ground. Your job is to complete the mission.” He then proceeded to give the cell their mission: “There are rumors of heresy on this planet. I need you to identify and deal with it. The last rumors stated that this heretic was located in the city of Persing, just north of here. Should you require information or assistance, I have an informant named Isaac. He resides in the slums of this town. Good luck, consider this your graduation test: pass and you shall become Acolytes in the cadre of Inquisitor Rodriguez.”

The cell left their ship and set out into the town of Acreage. Looking somewhat out of place in his Temple Guard uniform, Lupus decided that he and Bael should secure more native clothing. The two asked a woman walking by if she could direct them to the nearest clothing store. She did and so Lupus tipped her with a single throne gelt. The woman, having never received such a quantity of money in one day, thanked Lupus profusely. She promised to tell her friends all about his kindness.

Wolfe and Bones met a man that seems rather suspicious. He seemed to know something of this heretic. They pressed him for information and find out that there is a courier heading out of Acreage to deliver a message to the heretic in Persing. Wolfe told the man that if he gave the information that they needed, the man would be guaranteed safety. By the end of the conversation, the man realized that Wolfe had no intention of granting that safety so he walked off, knowing that he would die soon.

Meanwhile, Lupus and Bael found another person that seemed to know of this heretic. They went into an ally and pressed him for information, he refused to budge and got in a fight with Lupus. Wolfe and Bones heard this commotion and went over towards the fight. Two more of those heretics blocked them from reaching Lupus. Fighting ensued with Wolfe taking severe injuries, but they managed to kill two of the heretics before leaving.
