An Auto Quill is an elaborate, arcane writing device, composed of ink-stained brass and vat-grown or otherwise synthetic quills that are used by Imperial savants, scribes, administrators and anyone else who does a great deal of writing. They allow their user to copy text or transcribe speech with impressive speed and accuracy.

Many Imperial scribes in the employ of the Inquisition carry portable Auto Quill units, which are suitable for recording interrogation sessions or xenos translations.
