"Thank you for joining me, Inquisitor Valon."
"Pleasure, my lord."
"I hope your journey went well, considering the storm that was beating the Warp?"
"The ship lost one of their Navigators when the storm hit. Fortunately the rest of them were able to find a channel to stick in. Now what is it that you had me summoned here for, my lord?"
"Straight to business as always, eh? Very well then, let us not waste the precious little time that we have on our hands and allow me share my headache with you. It was unfortunate that the matter could not be discussed through warp. I have great trust to my Astropaths, but there are spies everywhere."
"That is what I have heard."
"Ah, yes, of course. Then you must know what happened to Inquisitor Cassar?"
"Indeed I have, my lord. Was Inquisitor Pherion the one who was sent to interrogate him?"
"He was, and there lies the problem. We haven't heard from Inquisitor Pherion since he landed to Ianthe IV. The last message with his signature is dated three weeks ago. Now we fear the worst."
"You would wish me to track him down and find out what happened to him?"
"Precisely! The matter is slipping through our hands and it must be dealt with haste. Rigorous act is the key to minimize the damage this insident has already caused. But I must insist that you will keep this in dark from the rest of the counsel."
"Understood, my lord."
"Good, good! Now, do you have your team here with you?"
"Yes I do."
"Excellent. Let us have something to drink before we go any further with the briefing, shall we?"
