Mission 19 Epilogue

Mission 19 Epilogue
Ex-Commissar Isaac stands over the cowering form of the traitor Cassius. The Ghost Raider scouts drag his sorry form onto the Thunderhawk Drop ship. Little does Cassius know what awaits him on the Battle Barge Shadow’s Fall. The Chaplains of the Ghost Raiders have spent centuries perfecting the arts of interrogation, skills that make Gaius look like a complete amateur.
Indeed it is mere hours before he starts to squeal everything he knows to the Marines, a great disappointment for the interrogator. Cassius was working under instructions of Consul Domitius Asinius Macro. It was Cassius who assassinated the previous Legate of the Third Legion in order to secure his promotion to Primus Pilus. The current Legate was next on the list and once that had happened the Legion would have been his.
He also knows that the Consul, Wolfram Aver the Consul’s Lictor, Estellis Pompeius, Albor, Duro, Pulcher, Glaber and other members of the Coterie, and himself met on numerous occasions in a private villa outside of Ostia belonging to the Consul. He knows Invidus also visited often, but never while he was there. The inner circle was always Invidus, Domitius and Archos Kurtz and then Pulcher upon Archos’ death.
A few months more fighting and the planet Jarvinis III is all but wrapped up. The Legion pack up and go back into the warp to return to Ostia, triumphant!
Where the Ghost Raiders go is anyone’s guess.
