Inquisitor Holt


Download this unit entry as a PDF

Holt moves throughout the Imperium, protecting it from the threat posed by the Four Winds of Chaos to the best of his ability, only to disappear again into the folds of humanity, hiding in common sight amongst the vast population of the Imperium.

Few could doubt Holt’s resolve in this task, as he was the one to give the order which destroyed his homeworld of Tarsiss III following the Second War against Lord Damius, but there has been shadowy precursors to his downfall and it wasn’t until the Cha’Mont’Yr War that Holt finally passed from the realm of Men and his soul was embraced by the God-Emperor.

To many within the Inquisition, the name Holt means little, a foot note in the history of the Imperium and a once noble and proud Inquisitor the Ordo Hereticus, but since the interrogation of Inquisitor Mintus of the Ordo: Xenos, Holt has remained an elusive and shadowy figure.

Indeed, Imperial records have shown that he has assumed a number of identities over the years, counted amongst them are Tibius, Alexia, Marko and even that of his brother, Luxen Holt, making tracking him through the galaxy exceptionally difficult, if not an impossible task.

But this is an important security matter for Holt, for he is a hunted man, an Inquisitor who had been declared excommunicate by the Imperium he strives to fight for.

The Traitor Canoness

Gemiel was a Sister Militant of the Order of the Holy Heart on Tarsiss III until she came into possession of a cursed blade and its malign influence corrupted her mind over time. When she fled during the turmoil of a volcanic eruption in the Holy Mountains of the Shrinehold, she returned many years later at the head of an Emperorís Children warband and thus started the First War for Tarsiss III.

None wish her death more then Gemielís sister, Alica, the present Canoness of the Order of the Raped Virgin, who now hunts Gemiel with reckless abandon, ceaselessly following up on any sighting or rumour that may bring her to confront her sister so that she can slay her with Alicaís own blade. Until such time, Alica cannot forgive nor forget.

Inquisitor-Lord: Inquisitor Holt is an Inquisitor from the Ordo: Hereticus, and has attained the rank of Inquisitor-Lord within his Ordo.
