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.

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)
History:
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 Ryken
uWKfPit.png
Interrogator Ryken

Affiliation: Ordo Xenos Taurelius
History:
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 Interrogator showed his anger and determination at the seeming inability of the Deathwatch to support his mistress. Although he seemed naive and inexperienced, Ryken was keen to lend whatever aid he could in supporting or avenging his mistress, the Inquisitrix Lythea.

During the defense of Syndalla, Interrogator Ryken disappeared for several weeks, operating independently.

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

The Defence of Beregar

bzHqDjg.jpg

The Defense of Syndalla














LocationDetailsNotes
Beregar City Walls (North-East)


Beregar City is surrounded by 30 metre-high walls, designed in the classic Imperial style to withstand sieges. Thirty metres thick at the base, with bunkers and storerooms inside, the walls taper towards the top until they are ten metres thick. The walls are lined with battlements and walkways for troops and munitions. Defensive emplacements stud the wall, holding heavy bolter and autocannon emplacements, twin-linked lascannon sentry turrets and artillery pieces.
XXXXXXXXXXXX
Beregar City Walls (North-West)See AboveXXXXXXXXXXXX
Beregar City Walls (South-East)See AboveXXXXXXXXXXXX
Beregar City Walls (South-West)See AboveXXXXXXXXXXXX
Commercia DistrictXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
Portica DistrictRunning along the seaward edge of the city is the Portica District, a hub of roads, mag-rails and docks. Shrouded in fog and reeking with the smell of brine, the Portica was a bitter battleground between the rebels and PDF. XXXXXXXXXXXX
Fabrica DistrictHidden by a pal of smoke and filled with factories, mills and manufactoria, the district is the grinding, hammering heart of Beregar's industry and the source of much of the world's finished goods. It is also home to promethium refineries. XXXXXXXXXXXX
Metallica DistrictMetallica holds the main power reactors for the entire city. Should the forge fall, the city and surrounding locations will be without power, shutting down defence laser emplacements and other vital systems. The Master of the Forge has Skitarii Tech-Guard holding his domain. Troops stationed within the Metallica District will benefit from the extensive defensive preparations enacted by the servants of the Machine-God.
Grand EstatesSectioned off from the rest of the city by wide canals and high walls, the decay of the rest of the city is less evident here. This district holds the Governor's Manse and the central headquarters for the defense of the city. It is here that many of the noble families of Syndalla chose to hold out, leaving the common citizenry to their fate.The high walls of the Grand Estates will provide protection for troops stationed here, leading to lower casualty projections.
Templum DistrictSome hundred Frateris Militia are holding the Temple district. Inside the temple is an ancient reliquary that is said to hold a legendary artefact of a Holy Saint. XXXXXXXXXXXX
Outer Planetary InfrastructureThis location is an abstract representation of the various water-treatment plants and pumping stations, switching stations, back-up power reactors, transportation hubs, medicae facilities and other locations. They often have little to no protection aside from the walls they are contained behind. XXXXXXXXXXXX
Planetary SpaceportXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
Levy Bunkers and OutpostsThe Levy has established numerous bunkers and outposts equipped with firing ports and turrets for heavy weapons, and enough food and supplies to sustain a platoon of troops for several weeks if need be. XXXXXXXXXXXX
Offensive OperationsThis "location" represents units detailed to strike back against Tyranid forces, conduct spoiler assaults and eventually destroy the Tyranids' foothold on Syndalla.Units assigned here will not contribute to the defense, but may reduce the strength of Tyranid forces attacking Imperial positions.

There are less than 100 of these highly-trained veterans under Locke's command, but their effectiveness should not be understated. They are equipped with Valkyrie Assault Carriers with Vulture Gunships for support, and if tasked with offensive raids and attacks they can do a great deal of damage. They should not be committed to operations alone, however.Platoon-sized force.

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.

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. Meanwhile, a second force of Deathwatch head for the mining moon of Vinov to answer a plea for help from the newly resurgent Interrogator Ryken.
