The Apostasy Gambit
The Coblast Assay are a company of ‘Regulators’- mercenaries and investigators for hire.
At least thats the public image.
In actual fact the Coblast Assay are a front for the Inquisition. Inquisitors and their acolytes often take on the disguise as Assay agents in order to cover their real investigations; hunting down heretics.
In order to maintain this ruse, acolytes are often forced to genuinely take on missions and cases from prospective buyers.
The Coblast Assay are famed for their long brown dustcoats and silver star medallions in the style of ancient sheriffs of Earth.
