"Truth needs not the ornament of many words."
Pazuzu, Bearer of Atom's spear, Chained Guardian of the Final Vault.
A weapon of terrifying atomic power and uncanny sentience, the Kadath-pattern Domitar Pazazu was largely held to be myth amongst the Orthodoxy. Despite repeated reports of potential sightings in Morqub, including during the warfare on Null, the device's existence remained unconfirmed. Rumours, however, grew increasingly rife. Supposedly, the Sons would unleash it upon the Pentarchy in retaliation for the Ishim and New Vale atrocities; and the construct was supposedly encountered and 'slain' by Chapter Master Gorn – immediately before his own death.
Post-war this unique automata and its weapon were never recovered.
'We found the Spear drifting beyond the Galactic Rim, embedded in a vast corpse the size of an Imperator. A slain Demiurge, one of Atom's many brothers, laid low in a war far more ancient than we could comprehend.We lost several hundred servitors extracting it. Their flesh and internal workings scorched beyond recovery by the Spear's nuclear fury. Many lasting mere minutes. A vast coffin of Neo-Cartesian inscribed lead was constructed, to cage it's rage on its return to Chernobog..''Warning anomalous radiation spike detected. Warning anomalous radiation spike detected. Warning...'
"A reaving piratical Astartes who operates in the shadows around Volnoscere but whose ultimate allegiances are unknown? What childish nonsense. Flog 'em. Flog everyone who's spread the rumour, and flog everyone who heard it."
"A single renegade space marine that could wipe out entire starships. And no one knows what happens to the crews."
Honoured and Savoured Lord,
Attached are pict-captures from the outbreak of the most recent battle on Viroy-7. We believe this to show the Diologus and some of his traitor kin. Records indicate sightings of his cabal operating in the area of the Viroy-7 system thirteen weeks ago. Astartes ident tags were found hiding inside a nearby lifter-servitor shortly after this pict was taken. Those ident tags belonged to the Storm Tyrants.
If this is the recently missing Storm Tyrants DECA-357 killteam, they’re now flying the black banner. Imperator Salvete. If it is him, we must inform the High Lords. Tell no one you’ve seen this, destroy all trace of this transmission and send emergency broadcast code 579to Styyttttttttklkhhheh. D. n Z
