Interrogator Chaplain Asiel
The ship shook with explosions as Interrogator-Chaplain intoned the litanies of closure, sealing the last of the regular battle brothers into a drop pod.
"Captain, the drop pods are ready", he called out over the comm system. "Have you had any luck raising Master Sheol and his staff?"
The comm system crackled as the captain responded, ".. forward section ..severely damaged..not much hopethey .. survived .orbit terminal prepare for. pod deployment. Emperor be with you.."
Asiel swore to himself as he sealed his own drop pod, hastily reciting the litanies of closure. "Captain, deploy when ready" The pod lurched as it was jettisoned from the strike cruiser. 'How could this have happened', he thought to himself.
