Dramatis Personae of Watch-Station Azurea

S7VLUZ5.jpg

Watch-Station Azurea hangs in orbit of a swollen and bloated gas giant, just as it itself is orbited by smaller craft - whether Imperial Navy vessels departing on patrol or cruisers returning from faraway campaigns. It is the sole staging point for the Deathwatch in the Taurelian Expanse, and the Brothers of the Deathwatch are regularly granted great latitude in performing their duties.

 

The Watch-Station is situated within the Outer Swordpoint Stars, a region over which the Imperium has fragmentary control. 

 

 

 

 

Watch-Captain Diocles
Chapter of Origin: Servants of the Throne
Role upon Induction: Chapter Master

Appearance:
The Captain's face is regal and patrician, the platinum servo-studs on his brow gleamed beneath his close-cropped, storm-grey hair.

His armour is ornate, as befits his position, bearing the insignia of the Inquisition upon his breastplate. Gilded saints can be seen praying and exhorting the Emperor in alcoves along his gorget. The Captain's shoulder pauldron is no common armorial depiction, but a mural of intricate artistry bearing the image of a skeletal figure, haloed, astride a golden throne. A stylised image of the Emperor of Mankind. Beneath, a scroll bears the Imperial gothic 'SERVI AUTEM'.

Personality:
Diocles serves as the Watch-Captain and commander of the Watch-Station, dispatching the Brothers under his command across the Expanse and the outer Swordpoint Stars as he sees fit. He must often listen to the petitions and demands of the Inquisition; he must often refuse them, such are the demands upon his warriors.

History:
Diocles was said to be Master of his Chapter before his departure to the Deathwatch. What circumstances would make such a storied warrior leave a position of such honour and glory are only for the Brothers of Azurea to speculate.

Dramatis Personae of the Inquisition

Inquisitrix Lythea
Affiliation: Ordo Xenos Taurelius (DECEASED)
 

Lythea was an Inquisitor of the Ordo Xenos who had uncovered a nascent Genestealer Cult on the world of Syndalla.

 

Her body was discovered by the warriors of Blackthorn, and Brother Akkad took possession of her Inquisitorial seal.

 

 

 

 

Interrogator Adrielle Haldane

Interrogator Haldane

Affiliation: Ordo Xenos Taurelius

 

History:

Born into wealth and privilege among the spires of Hyades, Adrielle Haldane was inducted into the service of the Inquisition at an early age. 

 

Haldane accompanied her mistress, the Lady Lythea, to the world of Syndalla in an effort to root out the genestealer cult.

 

She and her forces found the injured body of Brother Thorvald Hammerhand.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Interrogator Ryken

Interrogator Ryken

Affiliation: Ordo Xenos Taurelius

The Interrogator wears a hooded robe, inscribed with wards and runes that exhort the Emperor and decry the alien, that shrouds most of his form. He wears a breastplate emblazoned with a holy warrior spearing a xenos of indeterminate form. At his neck he wears a golden medallion of the Imperial Inquisition. At his waist he wears a sword.

 

The Deathwatch forces of Azurea first encountered Interrogator Ryken when he vociferously petitioned Watch-Captain Diocles to fulfil the Inquisitrix Lythea's request for aid. He accompanied Kill-Team Blackthorn to Syndalla, co-ordinating the defense against the Broodlord. During the defense of the world from the Hive Ship, Ryken disappeared mysteriously for several weeks. He eventually sent a signal to the Deathwatch forces from Syndalla's neighbouring world, Vinov. Here, amidst the destruction of the Tyranid consumption process, Ryken introduced the Deathwatch Battle-Brothers to Magos Erlan, who had produced a toxin to poison the Hive vessel. 

 

It was at this time that the Deathwatch were informed by Interrogator Haldane that she did not know Ryken, and that he had never been a pupil of Inquisitrix Lythea. 

 

Inquisitor Nahun Grist
"The Master of Chamber XIII"
Affiliation: Ordo Xenos Taurelius

Fleet-Captain Sevora Locke

Commander of the Imperial Navy cruiser King of Kings, Locke contributed her vessel and its escort frigates to the defence of Syndalla. When the Battlefleet Command demanded that the Imperial Navy abandon Syndalla, Locke elected to ignore her orders. 

 

Captain Algor DuRanes

Captain DuRanes arrived in-system aboard the Imperial Navy cruiser Adamant, demanding that Captain Locke and her squadron leave under orders of the Battlefleet Command. Brother Tyber of the Deathwatch intervened and demanded that DuRanes desist and contribute the Adamant toward the defence. When DuRanes refused, Tyber executed him and turned command of the Adamant over to the vessel's Executive Officer.

23Tyranids reach the system limits; the naval war begins.
24A strike team of the Deathwatch scour the countryside around Beregar looking for the corpse of Thorvald Hammerhand.

26The strike team searching for Thorvald receives a distress call from Levy Outpost 43. Finding the garrison slaughtered, they travel to Outpost 37, where the same has happened. The Demi-Squad is able to head the xenos threat off at Outpost 15, where they encounter a Lictor assassin-beast amidst burning wheat-fields, injuring it before it can escape. In Beregar City, the attentions of Apothecary Solastion are drawn to a group of criminals who have taken hostages. The Deathwatch act ruthlessly to crush the dissent, and the surviving criminals are later executed.
27The Deathwatch take the opportunity to secure Syndalla's defenses.
28As Fleet-Captain Locke predicted, the Tyranids make planetfall upon Syndalla. In space, the Imperial Navy and the Deathwatch Strike Cruiser Xenocide conduct delaying actions until the thermobaric shield above Syndalla can be ignited.

31On Syndalla, a strike force led by Sanguinary Priest Solastion heads to the Valshari Mountains in an attempt to demolish a dam that will submerge the flood plains leading to Beregar, denying the Tyranids easy access to the city. Managing to plant the charges without resistance, Solastion's Demi-Squad are directed by Librarian Montesa to a remote farmstead, where they encounter Interrogator Adrielle Haldane, an agent of the late Inquisitrix Lythea. Haldane reveals the injured body of Thorvald Hammerhand, lost to the Deathwatch since the earliest days of the mission to Syndalla. In conversation with Brother Solastion, Haldane reveals she has never heard of Interrogator Ryken, and that he was never a student of the Lady Lythea.

Meanwhile, a second force of Deathwatch head for the mining moon of Vinov to answer a plea for help from the newly emergent Interrogator Ryken. He reveals that he has been working with the Adeptus Mechanicus to develop a gene-toxin that could cripple the Tyranid hive-ship. The Demi-Squad elects to attack the Tyranids in their heart, delivering the toxin to a digestion pool via their Stormraven, Spearcast. A most unsual Mawloc (later codified as the 'Shroudmistress of Vinov') attempts to halt the Deathwatch, but it is slain. Akkad and Greysight administer the bio-toxin. Upon returning to Ryken's facility they find the so-called Interrogator gone, with only the Inquisitrix Lythea's rosette left behind. 

The Imperial Navy cruiser Adamant arrives in-system and demands that Fleet-Captain Locke and her squadron return to Battlefleet Command. It transpires that Captain Locke has received orders to abandon Syndalla - and that she had ignored them. Brother Tyber travels to the King of Kings and executes Captain DuRanes, forcing the Adamant to remain in-system and contribute to the defense.
32Solastion brings the fallen Thorvald to the Xenocide, where he attempts to restore him to life.
33-
34The Deathwatch gather in the Strategium of the Xenocide, where they plan the assault upon the Hive Ship.
