"The Lady Lythea has been on Syndalla for nine standard months with a small retinue of trusted agents and acolytes - I can provide you with their details via data-slate for you to familiarise yourselves during transit. Her astropathic communications indicated that she had begun her search in the rural farmlands and uncovered evidence that genestealers were certainly on-planet. Her investigation was conducted secretly as she suspected the Planetary Governor may be compromised. She reasoned that a decapitating strike - killing the Broodlord xenoform - would throw the enemy into disarray. Hence her astropathic requests for aid from the Deathwatch. I have not heard from her for two weeks now."
Too casual. The way he spoke about his "Mistress" was at odds with his previous passion. Evan a man such as that - any mortal - should have been more careful around line Astartes, but hovering around a peerless warrior like the Watch Captain and Brother Torvald speaking to him almost as an equal? Akkad's eyes narrowed, but he smiled as the Interrogator held out the data slate, but there was no warmth in it.
"And if the inquisitor herself has been compromised?" The Raptor spoke with all the grimness of a gallows and the insight of a flawless mirror. It was a question Akkad had strayed from, but this Son of Corax had done them all a service and showed some of what was on his mind. There were many here whose counsel was worthy Akkad thought.
Daon paused to allow the question to take root. He nodded his thanks at the Interrogator and moved to take the proffered data slate, extending his hand slowly so as to not arouse suspicion. The light glinted off the fingertips of his left, silver-shod hand, revealing the tips had been machined into feline like claws. He took the moment of distraction by Atratus to examine the man now he was only arm's length away.
OOC: GM, I'd like to make a scrutiny check on Ryken, I am looking for hidden weapons, bionics, anything that would be immediately out of the ordinary?
