The Apostasy Gambit
Inquisitor Mercius Kane
Inquisitor Mercius Kane is an enigma. No-one knows where this man came from or how he rose to power as an Inquisitor. Some say he was raised and taught in another segmentum of the galaxy and came to the Calixis Sector to avoid some shame or calamity. Others suggest he is an agent of the Emperor sent to save the faithful, yet those who know him agree he is a powerful orator, skilled Psyker and stubborn hunter of heretics.
Despite Kane’s hatred of those who cross him or the Imperium, he is remarkably benevolent to his underlings. He has many cadres of acolyte cells and tutors numerous interrogators- acolytes who have risen through the ranks and seek to become Inquisitors themselves. Those in his retinue or under his command can expect to be treated fairly, well equipped and given reasonable levels of autonomy. However in return Kane expects utter loyalty and dedication to the cause, requiring acolytes to lay down their lives in service to the Emperor if necessary.
