    The annoying noise the skull made in the vox channel Setesh could make no sense of. "++I was asking your master, skull.++" He diverted his attention from the group of Word Bearers and saw the heretek checking the tank. "++And it seems we have company incoming. If we linger for too long, the 'good' Word Bearers will probably open fire on us for not doing what they want us to.++"

    Verateka looks down and sees a small pink tentacle wrapping itself around her leg. It doesn't seem to be attacking just yet.

    The Word Bearers sweep forward and take up positions at the edge of the square, well out of charge range. 8 bolters and 1 heavy bolter are trained on Setesh.

    The leader, the only one not point a weapon, steps forward a bit. "Step away from the bodies. They and everything on them are ours."

    Verateka has no interest in determine the source of the tentacle and moves to leave the tank, presumably encountering some resistance from the tentacle.

    Verateka encounters no resistance from the tentacle as she moves throughout the tank. It does, however, remain attached.

    When she attempts to leave, however, the tentacle pulls back, trying to stop it.

    Extricating her leg from the tentacle, Verateka emerged from the tank, slamming the hatch down with her now-freed leg. She looked at the Word Bearers and offered a wave. "I couldn't help overhearing -- you're laying claim to the spoils of this conflict, is that correct?"

    Setesh looked at Katria's body. "I fail to identify her as one of your own." he said as he turned his head to look at the Word Bearers. "I can see no reason why the mighty Word Bearers would want some random human girl, whom I assume is dead by now as well." Setesh remembered the code cylinder she had showed him before. It must be what they are after. But how would they knew she had it in the first place, he wondered. To them it would just look like some woman laying on the ground.

    "But if you insist, I have no need for her body in this battlefield. But I have a force field here which I have to return, and at least pay my respects. Her grandfather was a friend of mine." He bent over her body and placed the refractor field on her bloodied chest as he took the code cylinder from out of view of the Astartes, using Katria's low silhouette being mostly obscured by the larger power armour-wearing Word Bearers who lay dead beside her.

    Verateka believed him.

    "I don't doubt that. But what you will do, no matter your intentions, is defile her body. Come, face me. And if you will not, then show your true colors. You will not profane the sacrifice of this woman. As a follower of Lorgar, you should be capable of respecting that."

    "I do not take orders from insolent mortals." he says rather dismissively.

    He strides over to where Katria's body lies, examining the corpse in a tidy and efficient manner. After a bit, he simply turns and walks in a noticably stiffer way back to his men without a word. Or, at least any word you can hear. They proceed back the way they came without a sound.

    Verateka found his statement concerning mortality interesting. Once they left, she moved to examine the various bodies of the Marines they had killed. "++What did they take from her?++" she asked.

    Assuming the WB goes ahead and searches the body. Taking some freedoms with the time he spends on it, but I can change that if it's inaccurate.

    Edit: Though it seems I was a bit late.


    Setesh watched the leader of the group walk past the heretek and toward Katria's body. Before he reached it, Setesh activated his comm leach with a sigil, intent on finding out what this was all about, or something interesting close by was happening. During the 20 or so seconds the Word Bearer searched her body, he observed him and listened to what was happning on the vox channels his comm leach was able to pick up.

    Putting the three Legion Bolt Pistols in her backpack, Verateka investigated the power armour proper. She was looking for the subsystems that were located in each, trying to figure out what was going on. She had Bloxly come over to aid her in this.

    In addition, she looked for anything else lootable. She'd probably take one of the Legion chainswords, if only as an interesting trophy. "++Well, if you won't answer me, will you at least help me drag these corpses into one of the buildings? I'll need some room to work... there may even be something in here that I can use to repair your armour, get some of those subsystems working again++."

    Among the different vox channel chatter Setesh picks up with his comm leach, one captures his interest -- the seeming internal vox of the Word Bearers leader who had just searched Katria's body, assumably after the code cylinder Setesh just about had time to take from her. The "package" he assumed was the code cylinder, but he could not figure out where the destination they were talking about was located nor what the protocol mentioned meant. The thing that stood out the most was the last thing they had told eachother. "For the Emperor" was the common warcry of the Alpha Legion. Or loyalist Astartes. But the thought of someone of those within the Word Bearers was laughable.

    Setesh remembered what the Night Lord had said during the eating aboard the Word Bearer vessel. He had mentioned some cult and the Alpha Legion could be involved. Setesh had disregarded his musings as those of a child who wanted attention, but the fact of the matter was it was entirely possible. He wanted to know more. Someone would know more. The seeming "leader" just now was out of his reach though, with all that support he had. And their destination was in the other direction of where he was intending to go. For now he would go over the events leading up to this point, and try to find clues and pieces to the pussle.

    Setesh walked over to Katria's body again and took the refractor field he had placed on her chest. It was pointless to leave it here. "Atleast you can loot to your heart's content now, as that is what it seems you wanted."

    Spoiler
    Show
    As a reply about dragging bodies:

    "The armour needs some maintenance, and my skill is too poor for anything other than simple things. I believe I will take you up on your offer." Setesh remembered the question the heretek had asked before, when he was in deep thought. "++And they took nothing.++"

    For two hours she toiled, cracking the power armour of the dead marines open and removing the osmotic gill life sustainer components, stitching them together. Once complete, she removed her own light power armour and inserted it, cleansing the various machine spirits when necessary to prevent any corruption of her suit. Then she checked to make sure the atmospheric seal would cover the joints correctly, and once satisfied, put the armour back on. For an hour, Bloxly tended to Katria's body, commenting on the state of the human. Afterwards, Verateka sent him off to find additional supplies.

    As she put her armour on, a murder servitor and a mechanical dog entered the building, carrying with them a scrap code generator and a suit of synskin. After a brief moment of connection and processing, she determined their identification: Riptide and Grag. Good. They responded well to her mental connection, and she was able to sync their processors with hers. While on their own the two weren't capable of calculating 1+1, the hardware existed within them to process data. With her software, it was a major boon to have them nearby.

    Moving over, she saw Katria's eyes move slightly. Kneeling, the heretek brushed the assassin's hair out of her face. "Katria, don't be alarmed. Take deep breaths. You have been exposed to some sort of mutagenic field, and have suffered horrific injuries. Try to stay still -- Bloxly's medicae skills aren't so great that he could simply repair you on his own."

    Where was that skull? she wondered to herself.

    Each success will heal Katria one point. If she goes from being Critical/Heavily Wounded, it will heal her 3 points per success.

    EDIT: Bloxly was only able to heal 3 wounds.

    Katria blinked slowly, her skin now a faintly glimmering iridiscent, dotted with small scales that glittered slightly. "What.. what? Zasz is.." She coughs slightly. "I can't move. I need to move."
