40K: Dead Cabal of Spite
Also known as the “Alien Hunters”, or the Order of the Aliens, the Ordo Xenos are dedicated to investigating, cataloguing and defeating the Xenos threat; the enemy without. They actively seek out and eliminate alien influence and corruption within the Imperium. Agents of the Ordo Xenos are typically the most eccentric of their kind, for they spend years – even decades – travelling and living in nonhuman space, learning everything they can that will facilitate the exploitation or elimination of the races they encounter. As a result, many Ordo Xenos Inquisitors have strong ties with Rogue Traders, with whom they share many goals, and often travel with retinues of alien mercenaries or travellers. Most speak dozens of nonhuman languages and have acquaintances and informants far beyond the Imperium’s boundaries. Despite this, there is more blood on the hands of the Ordo Xenos than any other branch of the Inquisition. Just as the Ordo Malleus can call upon the Grey Knights, so too can the Ordo Xenos call upon the services of their own Chamber Militant, the Deathwatch. Formed long ago by accord between a conclave of Inquisitor Lords and an esteemed assemblage of Space Marine Chapter Masters, the Deathwatch is composed entirely of veteran Space Marines, seconded from the greatest Chapters in the galaxy. They are trained and equipped to repel the alien tide that threatens to overwhelm Humanity, and are an invaluable tool for any Inquisitor seeking to vanquish the xenos threat.
