    The psychic power hit Zasz, but his years of shrugging off damage allowed him to withstand the ringing in his ears. With a jolly laugh, Zasz continued to unload bullets into the general area of the Sorcerer, attempting to obliterate the Tzeentchian Champion before he could get another of those painful blasts off.

    "Perhaps, my brother, but what a glorious death it might be!"

    Zasz and the sorcerer are both afforded a brief and horrific glimpse into the true nature of the Warp. The sorcerer being more experienced in such matters, manages to resist the corrupting influence that washes over him. Zasz isn't so lucky.

    Two of Zasz's shots punch into the sorcerer's chest, which explodes in a spectacular spray of gore. Organs, blood, bone, and other assorted bodily fluids (many of them unnatural) go flying throughout the hallway. The sorcerer is dead. Really, really dead.

    Zasz trundles over to the Sorcerer's corpse, obtaining the force field before anything else. "A duel, my brothers," he said after grabbing the item. "I have witnesses who can attest that I challenged, fairly, a champion of the Scourged. And we have now settled a question, as old as time. If it is the same, I believe it is my ritualistic duty to consume his flesh, now."

    "Then your information is incorrect, brethren. If you wish to examine the corpse, you will find no shells in his back, only his legs and, ahem, the front of his torso. But the challenge itself was witnessed by both one of the Scourged and a human. I can produce the human, although it would be a miracle to find the particular Scourged who witnessed it. And this fellow," Zasz said, gesturing to the dead sorcerer, "will speak no more, I'm afraid. Except for what is held in his genetics, which I will soon be learning. Perhaps his memories hold the challenge? I will soon know."

    Zasz sighed. "Find the human, she is nearer. Katria!" he bellowed, expecting his granddaughter to be nearby.

    While he waited for Katria to come, he looked at the Word Bearers. "You trust the words of a Tzeentchian over that of a Nurgleim. I find that particularly interesting -- of the two, which group is known for honesty?" A low chuckle, followed by a shaking of the head. "I, Zasz the Ancient, who fought beside Mortarion, who was trained by my primarch personally before the Betrayal of the Anathema, who carries both sets of armour as to always epitomize the philosophy of being ever ready, who has carried both sets of armour for over ten thousand years, who has cut through the hulls of space hulks and brought victory to the Death Guard, who was there when we were caught in the Warp and asked for salvation and succor from Grandfather Nurgle -- I, who have spread disease across planets, who have witnessed countless atrocities across this realm of existence -- I am to be treated with more suspicion than a sorcerer of the Changer of Ways, Astartes who purposefully twist and lie for the sake of their malevolent god?

    "Not a minute ago I asked the sorcerer if this was a bracing duel, and he said the word quite. For it was a duel! If he thought it unprovoked -- truly unprovoked, and not an attempt to slander and accuse me as a last-ditch effort to see me dead -- would he have agreed to such a statement? And you call upon a member of his warband to prove him correct? The warband who has lost honor to me for the death of their champion, you believe they will tell the truth about the proceedings?"

    A moment passes, then Katria pads into sight, yawning and shaking her head, once again wrapped in her robe. "Maah.. I was napping Grandpa, I was having such a nice dream." She then spots the body and then looks over the assembled Word Bearers, blinking. "Oh! Hello!" She smiles and waves. "It looks good Grandpa, fine work." She beams up at Zasz after glancing at the body again.

    Zasz nodded with a smile before performing the various ritual required for removing his helmet. Once that was done, he would sample the Sorcerer's flesh to see what memories lingered within -- and after that, he would see what other items the Sorcerer had. Although the armour had been damaged, it wasn't Terminator armour -- someone on this ship would be able to repair it, and potentially the subsystems within would be useful to move into the secondary set of power armour.

    Any weapons the Sorcerer had, as well, would be useful. For trading, moreso.

    EDIT:

    "I apologize, Katria. I thought our hosts would be unreasonable, but they are a credit to their Holy Father."

    Zasz takes a bite or two of flesh. It actually hurts a bit - the sorcerer's body is infused with the power of he Changer of Ways, which resists being consumed by one of Papa Nurgle's flock. Still, he does gain a little bit of information. Specifically, the rumor that these guys hear voices in their heads telling them every lie man speaks? True.

    The chest armor is pulped quite beyond repair, the the left leg appears to be rotting, no doubt the work of Papa Nurgle. Otherwise, the rest of he armor looks salvageable, though Zasz might have a hard time getting it off in such thick gloves.

    The sorcerer was also carrying a force staff, a bolt pistol, an unholy icon of Tzeentch, and a small book covered in Tzeentchian runes. Zasz feels an intense urge to destroy the icon and the book.

    Zasz took the various items up, leaving the armour and the Tzeentchian artifacts for a moment. "Darling Katria, will you help me with this armour? My fingers aren't nimble enough for the various seals and locks." Regardless of her answer, Zasz would kick the book and icon far from the body. Presuming it was at least 30 meters away, he shoot the items from afar, obliterating them. Part of him was interested in knowing what was in the book, but knowing what he did of the Changer of Ways, it would either be lies or some daemon attempting to possess him.

    That wasn't a particularly enticing thought.

    Katria nods and kneels by the body, deft fingers unsealing and removing the finer bolts and locks holding the armour together. She seemed unbothered by any blood that got onto her hands, though she avoided any contact with the diseased left leg.

    As the item and book were destroyed she gave a small pout, but made no other contact, glancing about to see if the Word Bearers were still watching them.

    Earlier during the duel:
    The briefing having ended and the gathered heretics being scattered, Setesh had no real destination in particular. He lingered, observing how people had reacted to the information and trying to overhear anything of note. All of a sudden his senses picks up a psychic signature from the direction behind him. Had some combat broken out? Maybe it was some sorcerer having fun with a slave. He did not recognize it as that Slaaneshi who spent time throwing bolts at slaves, this one was one of The Scourged's sorcerers he had seen before, one who was about the same psychic strength as himself. But the powers were more powerful than at that time. Which must mean he was pushing his powers to the limit. That was not without risk, and a sorcerer doing such a thing without a good reason was foolish. He was curious as to what was happening and started walking towards the locale of the sorcerer when he picked up another instance of a psychic power being manifested. This one was as strong, meaning another push. Setesh continued in the direction from where he had sensed the manifestations.

It is a portion of your grandfather's love for you, and it will protect you even if I cannot. In time, it may grow over-enamored and fail. If that happens, there are many who can repair it properly.
