The Inquisitorial Rosette of the Imperial Inquisition.

Hezika Carmillus is a Puritan Inquisitor of the Ordo Xenos, and the current Inquisitor of the Chamber on the Deathwatch's Watch Fortress Erioch, serving as the Inquisition's official representative in the Jericho Reach. Though known for her violent and martial nature, the Inquisitor is also subtle and cunning.

She is tall and blade-thin, wearing exoskeletal enhanced Power Armour sized for a normal Human at all times. She keeps a court of diverse and deadly warriors, collected from dozens of worlds, as Acolytes at her beck and call. Her voice is silken honey at one moment and unyielding steel the next.


Inquisitor Hezika Carmillus of the Ordo Xenos has served the Holy Ordos for over three standard centuries. In that time, she has led pogroms that have scoured xenos infestations from a dozen worlds, condemned and executed Lord Commanders and Admirals alike, broken influential and traitorous Rogue Traders, and denounced Radicalism amongst her own kind.

Carmillus will not, under any circumstances, allow herself to be perceived as anything other than what she is: a warrior savant in the service of the God-Emperor of Mankind.

She is undaunted by the transhuman killers of the Deathwatch, whose company her duty now bids her keep, and she will brook no challenges to her authority, in particular by other Inquisitors, although she is ever-conscious of its limitations.

Carmillus has been the Inquisitor of the Chamber and mistress of Watch Fortress Erioch's central Tower of Brass for sixteen Terran years. She has executed her sworn tasks with precise dedication and utter ruthlessness. While possessing a warlike temperament, she is also highly intelligent and subtle.

These traits make her an ideal emissary to the domain of the Deathwatch and well-equipped to deal with its Adeptus Astartes masters.

She has voiced the opinion in the watch fortress' governing Chamber of Vigilance that, although she is in favour of the Achilus Crusade, a contingency plan should be drawn up to destroy the Jericho-Maw Warp Gate should the crusade suffer a catastrophic failure.

She believes that the Warp Gate represents a vast threat to the wider Imperium if it is no longer under direct Imperial control. Her other intentions, however, remain tightly-held secrets.
