There is no Shortage of Piety in the Imperium, and no shortage of Pious men. Even in the smoke-choked, gun-filled depths of Gunmetal City, there are Priests. Men and women who work tirelessly to spread the word of the Immortal God-Emperor. And priests, contrary to what some would tell you, do have hearts of their own. And Gabriel Cortez is living proof of all of these facts.
Born into the Ecclisiarchy, Gabriel spent his formative years walking in the Emperor's Light, and, unfortunately, this light came from one place in Gunmetal - the barrel of a gun.
He grew up around the ever-feuding gangs, preaching the word of Him on Earth to even those who didn't listen. He was humble, he was intelligent, he was calm, and he was funny, making friends with some of the most Hardened killers and helping to bring them to the Emperor's light. He made Arbites out of Scum, Guardians out of Assassins, and Believers out of Malcontents.
It was only appropriate that, with his talents, Gabriel was sent to Hive Tarsus across the surface of Scintilla when his training was to begin proper. After a few initial hiccups - owing primarily to the boys odd mannerisms picked up from the other Hive, where up was good and down was bad, the boy took to his new calling like a duck to water, often climbing to both the dangerously-hot and dangerously-cold reaches of Tarsus on "field work" to spread the word - and never once issuing a complaint about the whole mess. He was weak and frail, but strength of arms was a factor sorely lacking in the Tarsan system of education, and the boy's naturally keen mind and easy way with words were only sharpened in the great Cathedrals and Houses.
One day, word of one of the Ecclisarchy's own being murdered on the far world of Spheris Secundus reached Gabriel's ears - and, unfortunately, this news was accompanied by even worse news.
It seemed that Gabriel's Master - a tall, strong swordsmen from Tallarn had decided that Gabriel had been coddled enough - living in Hives - environmentally uncomfortable as they might be - had done the young Cleric no good. Scholarly pursuits, the Tallarn had decided did a true Priest of the Eccilisarchy no good.
Gabriel was going to investigate. And he hadn't a choice in the matter.
The Tallarn was not without pity, though, and delayed the young priest's deployment just long enough to have a spectacularly-crafted mono-moloecular edged scimitar crafted specifically to Gabriel's measurements shipped from the Hive world of Landunder, and gave the untested and little-trained priest a crash-course in sword-fighting, consuling that Spheris Secundus had little in the way of firearms and that his Metallican pistol should be kept concealed - but the sword was universal.
Thus delayed, armed, and so warned, the Ecclisarchy finally saw fit to send their fledging Cleric to investigate the matter of the dead woman.
