PDH brings us yet another signature piece; simple and effective.
Research Assistant Edouard Mrytel
Beneath the gilded corridors of the Imperial Palace; far below its finery and resplendence. Below the most opulently dressed noble house. Beneath the Halls of the Navis Nobilite. Below the Mountain of the Astromican. Far lower than the mouldering layers of industry. Lower than the Administratum scribe halls. Below rusted ferrocrete, Beneath corroded plascrete. Below piles of adimantium buried many kilometres deep. Under all that is the Imperium of man lies the eternal darkness of Terra, ancient earth, forgotten secrets, knowledge hidden before the Emperor of Mankind walked amongst us. It is the duty of the Ordo Scriptorum to find this history of man. It is their duty to hide it from mankind or share its burden upon most learned souls. To find lost histories and punish those who failed, even if they are ignorant of the fact.
When you delve into darkness you are in need of an unrivalled guide. You need a skilled navigator of old, lost pastways, routes that will support you or to lead you from routes of peril and collapse. Research Assistants of the Ordo Scriptorum are often bootleggers, bandits or outcasts. The only skill required of them is the natural talent of forging and locating byways within the mantle of Terra. They will lead the curious through vast caverns of ancient technology or through crawl spaces so tight they look impossible to traverse. Research Assistants will find bibliocathedra, bureauvaults and data stacks lost for millennia, so the Inquisition can complete its knowledge and proportionate blame. These vast stores of information are wasted on the finders; for most Research Assistants can barely read basic gothic and this is what keeps them safe from their masters.
Edouard Mrytel is such a man, an expert at finding the right path. This day he chose to cross The Daylight Wall.
