Knight Militant; Silens can be abnormally vicious in her dealings but is convinced of her own righteousness.
"Nobody is more dangerous than she who imagines herself pure in heart, for her purity, by definition, is unassailable" Sister Imperius, on the cleansing of Fortress Antioch, Hrax

Born on the feudal world of Hrax.
Given to a Sororitas aligned fortress after her parents sense the malady of the soul upon her.
Sisterhood taught her in the old ways, used her as a weapon to target the Furimancer threat on Hrax.
Recruited by Interrogator King under the guise of completing the Emperors work, unaware that Inquisitor is a psyker.

Did some private work for personal confessor, while expanding her studies into the Imperial Creed. Discovered what her confessor was asking her to do was heretical and so killed him and his bodyguards.

Personal Log:
2.1.5 - Have made contact with Raptor cell as per King's directive. Initial faith assessment is poor; the driver appears to follow the creed, the warrior only appears to pay lip and the last is of the malefica. Driver appears to have uncanny ability to control vehicle, worth watching for unnatural links to vehicles. Psyker shows minimal control over abilities, perhaps involved with phenomena with pox-magister. Request extended loan of Power Stake to deal with any future complications.
Recorded kills: 1x Hereticus Majoris - Pox Magister
Equipment destruction: 1x Corruption Staff [burst into iridescent, green vapour], 1x Ritual Cleaver [shattered into a thousand, rusty fragments]

2.1.6 - The Killing Smile investigation is complete. Will practice forms 10,000 times and spend 2x months in silence as punishment for associated faith loss due to inability of Desoleum Cleric Maximus to deliver sermon as part of annual address. Psyker lost control again, only minor warp corruption related to provision, reminder to self; do not eat in front of him should his taint infect thine own provisions.
Recorded kills: 2x Hereticus Minoris - Nurgle Cultists

3.1.2 - To Come.
