Aherne Sutton Dark Heresy
Inquisitor Globus Vaarak
Inquisitor of the Ordo Xenos.
Vaarak’s long years of service to the Inquisition have cost him dearly. His body is broken, scarred and bloated. Both of his legs and one arm have been replaced with mechanical constructs built into an ecncompassing life-support system. Tubes festoon his pockmarked face, running from his nose and mouth and head. The ribbed black body-glove he wears scarecely contains his immense bulk. Despite his ancient injuries or perhaps because of them, Vaarak has an imposing presence. His dark eyes stare intently at whoever he is speaking to, his voice deep and craggy.
Vaarak is an Amalathian who believes that the Imperium, as grim a place as it is, must survive in its current state if the human race is to continue existing. He therefore seeks out sedition and rebellion in the Calixis Sector, trying to maintain the careful balance of its power groups. Given that he cannot operate in the guise of a normal citizen or adept, Vaarak must conduct most investigations through his acolytes, of whom he has several teams. His methods are subtle and moderate compared to some of the cabal’s other Inquisitors, for he would prefer that the Inquisition’s hand was not obvious, and encourages his acolytes to avoid open confict and violence as much as possible.
Vaarak has a bleak and self-deprecating sense of humour and is an excellent judge of character. Many of the conclave’s next generation of Inquisitors will come from among Vaarak’s Interrogators if he remains in favour. He has joined the Spectarians because the Tyrant Star represents a truly destabilizing threat to Imperial society.
