Inquisitor Thrace, reporting.
My acolytes (known for the duration of this log set as Kill-Team Alpha) have deployed to the upper mid-strata of Hive Cado, upon Vaxanide to meet with Magistrate Glauben about his discoveries. Furthermore, Captain Kaltos is taking the ship through a treacherous maneuver to avoid detection. Normally I would be wary, but the Herald swims with him at the helm. Thank the Emperor for putting him in our service. Although such stealth will serve to protect Kill-Team Alpha, it also imperils them, as we face a 72 standard hour communication blackout as the Herald circles around one of Vaxanide’s moons.
Following my Lord’s instructions, I will use this as a place for my private thoughts. I find myself concerned for them. They are trustworthy and faithful, but otherwise untested. Although fair shots, both Corvus and Aria are less than stellar at close-quarters fighting, which is common in the packed streets of a hive. F-e needs time and good positioning to be at her best, while Wraxa will have to deal with some of the worst dregs Hive Cado can offer, possibly alone. They have been cast into a crucible, and I fear the Emperor Himself may be the only smith who can draw them forth whole.
