Inquisitor Septimus and his team review their findings from the Alien Oracle, quickly identifying Cardinal Cal Sutai Arran as a high priority target for an investigation. Cell Vermillion is retasked from Malfi to inquire. Further information recveived via Astropathic signal from the Tricorn reveals the location of Commodore Thalion Vycorious in the Jericho Reach.
After several high level overrides, the Inquisitor becomes aware of the existance of the xenos Warp Portal in Zone 15 and the subsequent, hidden redeployment of the Margin Crusade to the other side of the galaxy.
Commodore Vycorious currently leads the 5th Calixian Expeditionary Battlefleet and commands over 50 vessels, with over a dozen ships of line among them to prosecute the war against the alien and heretic.
Concluding that the Commodore has to be dealt with immediatly, the Exemplar sets course for the remote System Designate 028-3B8-4D. Suspecting that substantial support will be necessary to conduct this investigation Inquisitor Septimus, Lord Krin, Pamelia and Magos Neall call in favors to assemble an inquisitorial taskforce.
