By request of our Emperor, you are hereby commanded and required to relinquish your current command to Inquisitor Julius Qualis and report to Tarnas at speed. There, you shall be given command of a century that is destined for Arinth Isle with the purpose of maintaining order within the ranks and ensuring that the goals of our Emperor on Arinth Island are met.

As requested I have arrives on Arinth Island and assumed the position of Inquisitor for the Cerinus Vulpes century. We have begun our patrols of the 8th circuit. It appears to consist primarily of farmland and small villages. Two of our Empires mines are within our borders, and we touch on the forest known as Aldenwood. As per our orders, we patrol only the parameter of the woods. Further reports will be sent as required.

It seems several of my prior orders have not reached you. Imperator Honorius has been commended for his actions against the Arinthian natives. While I am sorry that you were forced to expend your resources upon your troops, his actions were for the glory of the Empire and are to be praised, not castigated.

 

Per his request, I am assigning Imperator Honorius to the research division. You and your troops are to remain in the area and join the patrols that sweep the fourth quadrant region.

After the rebellion by the Arinthian natives and the forces of Caladyr on Arinth, my century has been reduced to a force of thirty strong. We will remain in our current circuit until such time as either additional orders have been received, I deem it unsafe for us to remain where we are, or until the first of next year.

Your loyalty to the Empire has been formally recognized. Emperor Salvatore has personally asked me to convey his appreciate for your efforts on Arinth Island during this troublesome time. That these citizens of Arinth can reject the glory and right of the Empire is a foolish notion that will assuredly be crushed most swiftly. Until such time, the Emperor has asked that you remain in your current circuit and continue to send reports on the movements of this so-called militia that has been raised upon this island.

 

Should you hear no other commands, upon the first of the new year, you and your troops are commanded to begin the journey across Arinth to the Imperial Academy installation. There would will receive new orders.

Having received no further orders - although I appreciate the relief that was sent in the form of Inquisitor Honorius - the Cerinus Vulpue company will begin the march towards the Imperial Academy Installation.

I am writing to rescind my previous compliments in regards to Inquisitor Honorius. If it were possible, I would send him back to you without his head, but I will need him during the rest of the march. Earlier this week, we stopped at a local farm to acquire supplies. The farm - a small homestead of perhaps ten people including children - resisted our legionnaires initial offer of a peaceful exchange. One woman, somewhat older, appeared to be reaching for a sickle and instead of merely taking her down with a corruption of the blood or dealing her a grievous wound, Inquisitor Honorius slew her outright. This enraged the rest of the farm to the point where we were forced to fight them all.

 

Two of my men were gravely wounded, several were lightly injured and a third killed out-right. I was required to expend a great deal of my mana returning them to full health, and I do not appreciate such expenditures as a result of folly. Arinth is dangerous enough even without provoking the native islanders, and I attempt to conserve as much of my resources as possible.

 

 

 

 

We have taken what we could from the farm and burned much of the rest as repayment for the insult to our company, but I should never have been put into such a position. I object to his actions in the highest possible terms.

 

We continue in our march.

We have spent the past week passing through the woods. Two of my scouts have gone missing. Hostile activity on Arinth appears to be growing, and we will press forward with all haste across the mountains.

We have reached the Imperial Academy outpost, so all future reports and orders may easily find me here. Inquisitor Honorius appears to be interested in joining the researchers here. I urgently request that you provide him with official orders reassigning him to that facility.

In the face of rumor and speculation, Inquisitor Honorius has deserted his post and fled.

Im hoping a little bird will help me right now. One of our Inquisitors, a man named Honorius, has deserted is post. Rumor and speculation suggest that he may be coming to you to find a new place to rest and hide. As our families have long been allies, and as my mother was a Lucan before she married my father, I will happily call upon the ties of blood if it shall help. I wish to find him my friend.
