Acheron’s formal record indicates that Brothers Kale and Keel were reunited.
- They and a number estimated not more than three thousand attacked the loyal crew. Acheron had adumbrated the mutiny and reacted swiftly. Kale is now dead. Keel is injured and confined to the Hand of Redemption’s apothicarium under heavy guard; four watchful ecclesiastic members bearing a profligacial nimiety of heavy flamers.
My requisition to visit with keel was met with assured amenability. I sent for Aristeus to join us. His skills would be needed to acquire information from the unconscious Keel. When we rendezvoused with Aris we proceeded to the apothicarium. The circumspect holy men were notably anxious. They carried flamers in such a small room; I could only assume that they were praying to the Emperor they would make it out alive if in fact they had to utilize their equipped incinerators. Aris attempted a link to the benumbed commander’s mind; he was met with mild success. An icy chill filled the room, an assured sign of his psychic ability in action.
It seems there was a violent disagreement involving Acheron and Keel which gives alleviation to Acheron’s report. The Hand of Redemption had not been authorized to be in the Svard system; also helping to solidify Acheron’s report. Aris collapsed a few moments later and as I helped him up and muttered a short prayer to the Emperor, he clarified the situation by informing us that Keel’s mind had been taken from him. The only way to find out a deeper truth would be to pursue the U’Vath…I look forward to it, though for the time being our priorities remain here..
