the deamon hunter inquisitor Cincinatus belongs to the radical faction Xanthies, witch believes that the power of the warp can be bound and utilized without spiritual corruption to the wielder, following such ideologies he created his first daemon host, (Ixor the bound as it identified itself) damming him to a life in which he would be forever hunted by his more puritan brethren.
the third inquisitor sent ageist Cinciatus was the witch hunter Scaevola who is of the thorian faction witch seek to understand ways that energy and consciousness interact with the warp, and their transferal from one to the outer. for the sole purpose of finding a way to guide the Emperorâ€™s spirit into a new form allowing him to rule directly. After hounding Cinciatus for several years, he became convinced that what cinciatus knew about possession and the essence of the warp could further his ultimate goal of allowing the emperor to once more walk amongst his people. granted that cinciatus had not yet been courpted by his servants.
after many years of cat and mouse Scaevola finally cornered cinciatus on an artifact world where a grand and final battle took place between the two. after which Cinciatus lying battered and broken admitted defeat and submitted him self over to Scaevola, but Scaevola offered cinciatus a way out of the immolation chamber, and thus a partner ship was formed.
Scaevola reported Cinciatus false demise to the imperulum giving them a few years to gather their strength before the treachery was discovered, in this time the two inquisitors where able to bind a number of daemons into human and xyenos hosts, several of these daemonic entities where able to exert their will onto the physical form of their hosts mutating them to be better conduits for their power. but for every successful host binding three had to be released back to the warp due to complications during process, or the bound daemon expressed to much of its own will. the host never â€śsurvivesâ€? this process, haveing efectivly been hollowed out to make room for the daemonic esence.
most of the husks die within a year of a botched binding. thus they progress slowly down the path that they feel will one day free the Emperor from his prison of flesh.
though the threat of corruption is high due to working so closely with the agents of chaos, every precaution is taken to ensure the safety of the final plan, the deamon hosts are never exposed to any one other than the inquisitors. short of the battle field in addition to this regular and vigorous purity tests are under taken by each and every individual who has even the slightest contact with any thing to do with any thing, even the inquisitors them self's are not above this process. those found to have any form of mutation of body or soul are assigned to plasma gun duty, but if they survive long enough to escalate to faze 3 corruption, symptoms usually include mutation visible to naked eye, are moved to the volunteer list for those to become hosts. the plasma gun is now seen as a form of ritual suicide, think of kamikaze mixed with a way to clense the body and soul of mutation and crouption.
though both now believes that the golden throne poses another obstacle between them and the forced resurrection to accrue. they realize that they have much to refine in terms of the binding before they reach their goal.
what do you all think?
It's overall very cool and nice, but one or two things..The first bit is correct, the second is too specific.Originally Posted by murphy
Thorians are generally interested in finding ways for the Emperor to interact with the physical world, not all of them want to transfer his consciousness permanently into another form. Some Thorians believe in the Ecclesiastical doctrine which sees the Emperor's internment as a willing saccrifice for the benefit of humanity, and believe the status quo, with the Emperor occasionally believed to be manifesting in living saints for a limited period of time, is what the Emperor always wanted. The Thorians also include resurrectionists, who don't want anything to do with saints and divine vessels, they just want to learn how to understand the golden throne so that they can reinsert the Emperor's soul into his original body.
It's a minor point, but in trying to sum up the doctrines too concisely, I think you're detracting from the variety and individuality which makes the Inquisition interesting.In the fluff, I don't think a plasma gun would really have a 1/6 chance per shot fired of melting its user. That would make it invalid as a useful weapon. In inquisitor, for example, the most likely outcome of a plasma overheat is a generally non-fatal burn to whatever hand is holding the weapon, possibly resulting in the user being unable to fight any more in the context of an immediate battle, but not the suicidal constantly exploding monstrosity the 40k rules present it as.Originally Posted by murphy
But as I said, very nice overall.

"plasma overheat is a generally non-fatal burn", well that sucks... and as for the thorin thing a little rewording of that and it will work better.
