"We all want the same thing, Brother-Sergeant: to see humanity reclaim not just the Jericho Reach, but our galaxy from our foes."

Adrielle Quist

Inquisitor Adrielle Quist of the Ordo Xenos.

Adrielle Quist is an Ordo Xenos Inquisitor serving with the Achilus Crusade to retake the Jericho Reach for the Imperium of Man.

Quist was first noted by Inquisitor Hezika Carmillus for her prodigious telepathic abilities. Her sharp, investigative mind distinguished her from her fellow acolytes, and during her time as an Interrogator she was one of a select few brought to the Tower of Brass when her mistress became Inquisitor of the Chamber at Watch Fortress Erioch.

Five short Terran years ago, Quist earned her rosette and became a full Inquisitor. She remains Carmillus' primary hand in the field. Quist has a deep fascination with alien technology that she keeps tightly concealed.

She is all too aware that many around her would brand her a Radical or a Traitor for her desire to see the Imperium match the technological advancement of alien species like the T'au. She is secretly one of the Crucible Resolviate's principal sources of xenos artefacts.

Quist would greatly like to find Deathwatch warriors who share her open mind about the path to humanity's advancement, as it would make procuring xenos items from their missions far less laborious.

T'au Interests

Of the Inquisitors of the Ordo Xenos who frequent the halls of Watch Fortress Erioch, none are more diligent or zealous than Adrielle Quist.

However, Quist is careful to hide her fascination with alien technology, particularly the intriguing developments used by the T'au Velk'Han Sept.

Quist has directed a number of Deathwatch missions into and beyond the Black Reef, often including instructions to retrieve particular xenos artefacts of interest to her and certain magi of the Adeptus Mechanicus.

However, the Inquisitor is also well-aware of her true duties to the Imperium, and many dire threats to the progress of the Achilus Crusade have been exposed and halted thanks to her efforts.

She has been known to personally accompany a Deathwatch Kill-team from time to time, particularly if the current mission is important to her own interests or those of Inquisitor Carmillus, her nominal superior.
