Caelestis Inquisitores is divided in two branches, the Inquisition and
the Army of the Lightsworn.
Exarch of the Inquisitores answers to the Grand Priory of the Caelestis
Templares and works most closely with the Grandmaster to manage the
logistics and running of the Order. The Exarch is the Grand Priory's
connection to the Inquisitores and ensures the Inquisition true to the
The Master Inquisitor of the Inquisitiores answers to the
Grand Priory and works most closely with the High Deputy Lord Inquisitor
to conduct and manage the Inquisition and the Inquisitores' army of
Lightsworn. The Master Inquisitor is charged with the task of managing
the Caelestis Inquisitores in all day to day matters. Above all else,
the Master Inquisitor is in charge of ensuring the Order does its duty
in gathering information on, capturing, torturing, questioning, and
executing people for the Inquisition in service of the Almighty Light.
Inquisitors answer to all those of higher rank in the hierarchy and
may give orders to all those below in rank level, as seen on the above
heirarchy. Inquisitores concern themselves mostly with those directly
below themselves in the heirarchy as they are mostly concerned with
matters of Inquisition, such as information gathering, assassinations,
and other various shady matters. As officers, Inquisitors are allowed
to perform Inquisitions. An Inquisition is the whole process of gathering
information, through whatever means is required, and acting upon that
information to further the Light's will. Inquisitors are tasked with
getting to the bottom or matters and conducting all that is required
to do so.
Lieutenants are of the same level in the heirarchy as Inquisitors and
answer to all those of higher rank and may give orders to all those
below in rank level, as seen on the above heirarchy. Lieutenants occupy
themselves mostly with battle and war. They are proven and mighty leaders
in combat and serve to inspire and lead the Army of the Lightsworn against
the heretic. Often Zealots and Fanatics are hard to manage as they can
be so taken with their fervour to serve the Light that they can become
unruly. This is where Lieutenants shine, they are harsh task masters
and are skilled at channeling the chaotic fanaticism of Zealots and
Fanatics into a productive and powerful force of battle.
Assassins are agents who have proven themselves worthy through action
and value in the field. They have proven that they can be counted on
for more than simple tasks and as such are given more high profile tasks
to serve the Inquisitions of the Inquisitors. These tasks range from
information gathering, spying, assassinations, to seeding information
and counter intelligence.
Agents are servants of the Inquisition who have proven that they can
be trusted with some basic information of a sensitive nature. Agents
can be given simple tasks such as spying and questioning informants.
Agents are welcomed into the world of the Inquisition and expected to
serve the will of the Inquisitors no matter what they are asked to do.
Zealots are of the same level in hierarchy as Assassins. Zealots are
those who have chosen to serve the Light but due to their past, race,
or training are not able to walk the path of the paladin and join the
Caelestis Templares. They are the reformed, the faithful and the mighty
who know that the right path is the path of Faith and salvation. They
are great masters of their training and feared for their excellence
in battle. They are a vital part of the Light's army. Zealots wear their
Tabards at all times (unless on a mission from an Inquisitor) and stand
just behind the Templares at meetings.
Fanatics are those who have seen the Light and decided to die for their
Faith. There is nothing that will keep them from their newfound faith
in the Light. They have given up any previous faith or alliance in order
to serve the Light as they have now found it. They have proven that
their devotion is at a fanatical level and would rather die a million
deaths and feel the pain of a million tourtured souls than do anything
to go against their new Faith in the Light. Almost insane with piety
they wish to redeem their past failure of not being devoted to the Light's
Novitiates are those who have entered the order and wish to serve the
Light. They are evaluated for their worthiness by the Master Inquisitor.
If they are deemed unworthy they are removed from the Order.
the Caelestis Inquisitores
Infiltrators are people outside of the order who work for the Inquisitors
and Master Inquisitor to move between our enemy's guilds gathering information
and trying to disrupt their ability to wage war against the Light. Their
value is immense and part of that value is in their secrecy. It is for
that reason that only the Inquisitors and Master Inquisitor may know
who they are.
Informants are people outside the order who work for the Inquisitors
and Master Inquisitor to give the Inquisition important information
on the activities of heretics. Some of these informants are those who
simply dislike the activities of some of their guildmates or others
they know. Others are on the payroll of the Master Inquisitor. Some
just want to help clean up this dirty world. No matter what the reason
is they provide vital information and perhaps will be judged kindly
by the Light or even find salvation in their deeds for the Light.
Inquisition wear their tabards only when they wish to intimidate their
enemies. Wearing the tabard gives away that you are a member of the
Inquisition. Often members of the Inquisition such as Agents and Assassins
only wear their tabard when they are about to kill their target so no
one but the dead will ever know who they kill. Giving away that you
serve the Inquisition can compromise your ability to infiltrate the
enemy. While they are expected to attend, Agents and Assassins hardly
ever attend meetings wearing theiri tabard unless their face is covered.
Mostly they stand in the back or to the side and try to blend into the
crowd to listen for information or heresy.
Army of the Lightsworn always wear their tabards unless they are doing
something that requires surprise or special tactics. The Army of the
Lightsworn is proud of its service to the Light and as such wear their
tabard at meetings.
