Outwardly, Ignatz is as impassive and motionless as a statue - part of his training. Inwardly, he is seething with the thirst for knowledge. The Sigillum Domini? What secrets might lie within that mausoleum?
The Ministorum Administrator furrows his heavy brows upon being interrupted by the eager young Novice. Glaring at her disapprovingly for several minutes before continuing.Monyka is stunned, thoughts reeling. She blurts out "The Emperors' seal, once held in His hand, far from Terra. Is the seal still in the tomb? Was there another robber who got away with it? Does the seal allow access to ancient secrets?"
The Reverend-Mother takes a steps forward “Your ‘excitement’ is understandable Novice. And I’m sure it is shared by all in this room. This is unlike any treasure your squadron has ever been tasked to retrieve. There is nothing to forgive.”Monyka bows her head and falls silent, interlinking her thumbs to make the sign of the Aquila. "I understand, monsignor, please forgive my excitement at the thought of finding a personal relic of the Emperor himself."
An excellent question. But first, I would point out the sigil imprinted upon that shrine is the Raptor Imperialis, which was used as the Emperor’s personal symbol from the time of the Unification Wars on Terra through the early days of the Great Crusade. The Raptor Imperialis was in use by the Emperor until some point shortly after the Treaty of Mars after which His icon became the Holy Aquila. Now, as to the how...”Through out the meeting Aeysha stands in the back, arms crossed while she just stares at the Monsignor for several minutes. There was just something about him she didn't like, might just be the smell from his profuse perspiration, but something deep in her mind just warned her about something wrong.
Gingerly taking the data pad, she does a few quick swipes before coming up, "Yes, Reverend-Mother, I just have to wonder how the Emperor's own Signet ring could end up this far out from the core Sol System? He was still issuing Warrants and Decrees up until the end, though at a lessened pace to concentrate on some of his other works, so should have had it with him. At least from what I learned from the rather extensive library in this monastery." While she was willing to stare daggers at the priest, the Matriarch has already earned the Interrogator's respect and would not slight her.
“Observant as always Sister-Palatine.” The Reverend Mother replies. “It would be prudent to do so, yes. In fact, given the geometric design of the chamber, the numerous wards and the large veins of silver running through walls, we believe the entire site was built as a psychic nullifier.”Sister Palantine Helena Barova
Helena untangles her hands from the Aquila and thumbs through the dataslate. Her Diologus Training allows the elder sister to pick up a great deal of knowledge in a single reading. "Nyet, look at discovery report. Was sealed tomb chamber. Look at crenellations. Is right age for proper artifact. Canoness, suggestions for the ring, do we need reliquary to hide it from the unworthy on our return?"
