My lord Inquisitor, as per your instructions, I have successfully reached Port Wander and infiltrated a Rogue Trader vessel, the Nocturnus of house Casmirre. I believe house Casmirre will serve our interests well in scouting the fringe regions beyond your usual sphere of influence. My position as a minor coms officer on the bridge leaves me perfectly situated to monitor bridge activities and away team communication relays.
My First impressions of the Nocturnus and house Casmirre is one of surprise, shock, and disgust. With the recent passing of Lord Bastion Casmirre, under the highly dubious circumstance of death by pretzel, his child nephew Lord Torian Casmirre has inherited the charter and house. Lord Torian Casmirre relies heavily upon his retinue for support and guidance, which is frightening considering he is surrounded by abominations.
I suspect Torian’s mutant seneschal, Atticus, is the prime force behind such a corrupted cadre. It would only be expected that he would advise the young Rogue Trader to take confidence in beings as twisted and impure as himself. Even for a mutant though, assisting three xenos in gaining Torian’s confidence is either a heinous act of betrayal or evidence that his sense of judgment matches his body (heavily twisted). Even the head representative of the Machine Cult seems to be suffering impurities. The Tech Priest Yash possess far too much interests in the matters of flesh than a creature of metal should.
Inflicted with such heresies, I was unsurprised to see the Nocturnus fall prey to an ambush while leaving Port Wanderer. The Pirate Captain Dregg managed to subvert a portion of the Nocturnus’s crew, an easy feat I would imagine, leaving the vessel exposed to Captain Dreggs bombardments. An assault upon Lord Casmirre’s bridge was easily and horrifically squashed by Torians monstrous retinue.
Surprisingly, the Nocturnus managed to escape the ambush via warp jump, and even returned effective torpedo fire upon Captain Dregg. The vessel now flees the Calixis sector into the wilds of Tannhauser Gate. Boros Segunda within the Tallus Cluster is the stated destination, repairs and trade being the main objectives.
I will continue to log House Casimrre’s activities in the hope you will find them of use in your efforts to safe guard the Calixis sector. As you have instructed, I will avoid trusting my reports to astropathic relays and will instead intrust my log collections to your informant web upon re-entering the Calixis sector.
Thought of the day: Faith must shine brightest when surrounded by shadow.
