Watch Commander Mordrigael,

Responding to intel from Inquisitor Sarno and as per your instructions, I have dispatched the kill team on the first of our missions on Argoth. While escorting the Inquisitor to his first meeting with the nobility, xenos technology was discovered. Brother-Sergeant Hur witnessed one of the nobility wearing an ornate Eldar shuriken pistol. Other intelligence obtained by Inquisitor Sarno has confirmed the Pathfinder’s presence within the capitol spire.

I immediately dispatched Battle-Brothers Geirlav, Tavish, and Hur into the capitol hive to retrieve the Pathfinder alive. I have ordered the kill team to utilize Deathwatch Scout recon armor to remain discrete while on their mission. I, however, have doubts as to our battle-brothers’ abilities to blend in with the human population. Each of the three seem to have poor communications skills with the standard citizenry. Within moments of arriving in the capitol spire they aroused the suspicions of local law enforcement. Through other channels I have been informed that they are currently wanted for questioning by Arbites officials.

During their preliminary investigation they were positively identified as Adeptus Astartes by a weapons smuggler named Jimmy St. Cloud. Their conversation, however, indicates St. Cloud may be a deserter from the Imperial Guard or a local PDF. Hive black market dealers are rarely known for their discretion, so I fully expect the rumor of Adeptus Astartes presence to spread quickly. At Inquisitor Sarno’s request, I have decided not to have the rumors stopped. Jimmy St. Cloud may be a contact needed in the future by either the Inquisitor or the kill team.

The battle-brothers were involved in a small altercation with unknown, but well armed assailants in the underhive. These assailants may be the people thought to be following the kill team. Unfortunately, the kill team was unable to ascertain the identity of the assailants as each was rigged with an explosive device which was triggered by their own death.

The mission is still underway, and I will update you as necessary.

Brother-Chaplain Nacio
