Radical Inquisitor, Thaddeus Hakk, sworn to preserve the legacy of the Soul Drinkers Space Marines Chapter, has undertaken a perilous gamble in the riddance of the daemonic and corrupt from within the creviced and labyrinthine halls of the Imperium’s sweeping institutions. Chief among the tasks of this impossible mission is the recognition and elimination of the forces of the powerful daemonic prince, Abraxes, ancient foe and manipulator of the Soul Drinkers.
To this end, over the many years since his fall from grace, Inquisitor Thaddeus has successfully negotiated tentative alliances with Brother Captain Bercilak de Hautdesert, of the Grey Knights of the Eight Brotherhood, found one set of sympathetic ears in the Officio Assassinorum, recruited members of the Faceless, a death cult of the Imperium, and allied with a Company of Freeblade Imperial Knights, claiming alternately to be either led or inspired by the Madrigal, the Night’s Watchman, last of the Defenders of Stygia. Thaddeus has recruited from the disenfranchised of the Imperium, finding Scions and Acolytes in the backwaters of the outer rim and been joined by Crusaders and Priests sworn to purge the unclean from the galaxy.
But perhaps the most significant miracle of his risk-filled tenure is the clandestine preservation of the purified gene seed of the Soul Drinkers. With help of a small cadre of survivors from Imperial exterminatus, Thaddeus has reconstituted the free-thinking Soul Drinkers. Following their own peculiar heresy, the new Chapter Master has seen to the raising and training of a new generation of these stoic yet passionate warriors. Numbering but a single battle company in strength, these new Soul Drinkers fight to restore the honor of their fallen Chapter and claim their place in a new Imperium, truly loyal and pure in the will of the Emperor.
Known collectively as “The Court of Titan,” Thaddeus acts as judge and manipulates his allies towards judgment of the impure, whether daemonic or human, in an impossible mission to reverse the dishonor of his past actions and fulfill his promises to an executed ally.
