The War for the Emperor's Soul
Inquisitor Nicodemus is an almost legendary figure within the Tyrantine Cabal, but over a century ago he all but disappeared from the Conclave. The reclusive man retired from field work and instead continued is work for the Inquisition through a network of trusted agents and advisers. Nicodemus hasn’t been seen in person since he disappeared, and rumors persist that he actually died long ago. Nicodemus has a reputation for ruthlessness, he believes the ends justify the means.
A fiery puritan in his early days as an Inquisitor, Nicodemus always eschewed the politics of the Calaxian Conclave, vocally criticizing his peers for being more interested in the machinations of the Lord Inquisitor Caiden’s court than in rooting out the enemies of the Imperium.
