My lord Ace, you are always one for a lot of ideas, all at once!
I read one of your works and then discovered that this too was one of yours! How many ideas do you have?
Anyway, I quite like these guys. Though, you couldn't resist the Skyrim reference could you?
The Inquisitors pressing the issue maintained that doing so would 'decisively protect Imperial interests in the area', and thus satisfy the Chapter's reason for creation. Grudgingly, the White Hawks deferred to the Inquisitors' demands, feeling it was pointless to argue.
This is something I don't quite like. How weak, uncompetitive, prideless and opinionless are these Astartes? Astartes are hyper-masculine in terms of their traits, aggression, dominance and competitiveness and this line just seems to make them appear, well, weak.
They should argue, they should put their best foot forward, they should make their beliefs and opinions known regardless of the outcome. They're top tier independent operators in a galaxy spanning empire in constant crisis, if they don't say what they believe and back it up, what good are they?
Tying it back to their character, I get the distinct impression their wolf-like self-aggrandizement belies an inherent insecurity within the chapter, which is fantastic. However, it doesn't gel with the above line. It sounds like they're arguing with their wives, not managing the war-resources that could destroy worlds or tip the balance of sector spanning conflicts in whatever theater they wish to deploy in.
