Inquisitor Ordo Hereticus
The party acolyte’s previous Inquisitor. After disobeying his orders, it is unclear what Vaarak’s next move will be.
Severely wounded as an Interrogator while boarding a
pirate ship, Vaarak’s body is broken, scarred and bloated.
Both his legs were amputated and he moves by means of
a robust mechanical vehicle with mechanical legs and an
inbuilt life-support system. His face is horribly burned and
pockmarked, with tubes running from his nostrils and mouth
to help him breathe. One arm was also lost and has been
replaced with an obvious bionic limb. Vaarak’s clothing is a
ribbed black bodyglove that barely holds in his enormous
girth and which incorporates cooling and regulating devices
to keep him alive.
Vaarak is an Amalathian who believes that the Imperium,
as grim a place as it is, must survive in its current state if
the human race is to continue existing. He therefore seeks
out sedition and rebellion in the Calixis Sector, trying to
maintain the careful balance of its power groups. Given
that he cannot operate in the guise of a normal citizen or
adept, Vaarak must conduct most investigations through
his acolytes, of whom he has several teams. His methods
are subtle and moderate compared to some of the cabal’s
other Inquisitors, for he would prefer that the Inquisition’s
hand was not obvious, and encourages his acolytes to avoid
open conflict and violence as much as possible. Vaarak has
a bleak and self-deprecating sense of humour and is an
excellent judge of character. Many of the conclave’s next
generation of Inquisitors will come from among Vaarak’s
Interrogators if he remains in favour. He has joined the
Spectarians because the Tyrant Star represents a truly
destabilising threat to Imperial society.
