BRUTAL DOGMA ENFORCERS
The bane of traitors, witches, mutants, rogue psykers, and apostates. These Inquisitorial agents ensure doctrinal and physical purity by stamping out selfishness, persecuting renegades, and culling free-thinkers and disbelievers.

The Ordo Hereticus is often called upon to monitor internal threat to the Imperium. Sometimes aided by the Adepta Sororitas, the Ordo Hereticus is also called to monitor other Imperial organizations including the Adeptus Arbites, the Adeptus Astartes, and even other Ordos of the Inquisition. Only the Emperor is beyond their jurisdiction.
Inquisitor Onzedius Aspar
Rogue and unlicensed psykers present a grave threat to the myriad worlds of the Imperium. Should they master their gifts, psykers can manifest incredible powers including mind control, kinetic blasts, and some can even shape reality to their whim. An untrained or undisciplined psychic mind is extremely susceptible to daemonic possession, their souls shining within the Immaterium like a beacon for the denizens of the Warp.
Mutants make up the numberless humans across the galaxy who have physical deformities beyond the accepted ‘pure’ human shape. Whether caused by environmental conditions or exposure to the warping forces of Chaos, to bear a mutation is deemed as a heretical act against the God-Emperor of Mankind by Imperial authorities. Mutants are shunned and driven from society, but in search of acceptance, many join cults dedicated to the Dark Gods where their mutations mark them out as favoured in the eyes of their deities.
HERETICS & TRAITORS
Turning from the Emperor's holy light is, regrettably, an extremely common occurrence. Whether for political or unholy reasons, these individuals are freed from the dogma and duties of the Imperium and indulge in their passions (or super-human gifts in the rare case of Heretic Astartes). Their acts of banditry and wanton destruction make them dangerous enemies, and should they be allowed to execute their agenda there is a fear that all wayward souls will inevitably turn to the forces of Chaos.

An agent of the Throne is autonomous by nature, though none can hold the knowledge of the cosmos on their own.
