Atrid Skane

Inquisitor - Ordo Hereticus


Skane is the acolyte’s patron Inquisitor. She saved the acolytes from certain execution at the hands of Vaarak, their previous Inquisitor. After having gone missing, the acolytes repaid Skane by finding and saving her.


A formidable woman, Inquisitor Skane exudes the rough
authority of a seasoned arbitrator officer. Tough and
resourceful, she is one of the most active of the cabal’s
Inquisitors, happy to get her hands dirty rooting out
corruption. Skane is a striking woman with a stern, strong
face who wears her hair regulation short. She habitually
dresses much as she did when she served as an arbitrator on
Scintilla, in a black uniform and body armour, and is rarely
seen without her shock maul and shotgun. Skane respects
those who respect her, treats her more skilled acolytes as
equals and has little time for pomp and appearances.
Skane follows the Recongregators’ creed, which states
that the Imperium must be reformed radically to reduce
the suffering of its people and that the Inquisition is the
only body with the authority and skill to reform it. Skane
believes that the Imperium’s woes are caused by corruption
among its ruling classes. She developed a particular hatred
for corrupt nobles whilst serving as an arbitrator and has
carried that through to her work as an Inquisitor. Her
operations, therefore, target corruption among the nobility
and the Adepta, including the Adeptus Arbites she once
served. She dreams of a future where the Imperium is
turned upside-down and justice is the rule rather than the
exception, but she realises that she will not live to see it. She
fights for what justice she can and hopes that others will
follow her to carry on the battle. Skane is convinced that
the Tyrant Star can only be appearing due to some form of
summons. She believes there is a powerful cult at work in
the sector, employing sorcery to call the Tyrant Star down
on mankind. That is a cult she would very much like to
personally root out.
