Last Argument of Kings

The Last Confession
Part 2 - The Start of the Slope

What would you do if a battle brother accuses another brother of treachery?

What would you do if the accusation was against your whole team?

We had pushed back the seemingly never ending tide of Tyranids pouring into the Reach and in the brief respite had been rotated back to Erioch.
We waited and waited for another mission, spending days down in the bestiary fighting xenos we had never encountered before.
The others urged me to take up our drought with the Watch Captain, while it was my responsibility I lost some respect for my brothers as they appeared to be afraid our the Blood Angel Librarian – unfortunately I found out much later why.
I never got a chance to approach Mikhael because he found me – we had a mission – to investigate Eldar activity in the northern sector, apparently the Eldar had not been in or near the Reach in thousands of years.

The Last Confession
Part 1 – The Beginning – where all good stories start

The apothecaries have left me for the moment, I was getting sick of them hovering like great white buzzards over my broken body

But I suppose they are there to serve their purpose
Just like us all

Guided by our fathers hand

I must not have much time left

It is time to break the silence and tell my Chapter Master what almost happened on his doorstep.

Those whom were there believe it all occurred on the outset of the Achilus Crusade however on reflection the foundations were made during my Second tour with the Deathwatch

The Jericho Expanse had been lost to the Imperium for so long that it had almost faded from memory, it was believed to be completely cut off and inaccessible so you can imagine my surprise when I received orders to be stationed there.

The Deathwatch knew of a way into the Jericho Sector – now known as the Jericho Reach and they had been keeping the Watch Fortress’ in the area manned ever since the Fall of Night enveloped the region.

I was assigned to a Kill Team that had recently lost a member fighting a new Xenos foe – the great devouring Tyranids. It took some time to mesh with my fellow battle brothers but after mission after mission against the Tyranids encroaching on the eastern part of the sector I was finally part of the Kill Team, even being named Squad Leader – I was full of pride, but that, unfortunately, is not always a good thing.
