May I remind everyone that the series confuses the two roles of the Ordo Hereticus and Ordo Malleus, by using the Hereticus as an authority on warp powers(vis a vis the Weirdboy attack that stranded Cain on Perlis) and the Malleus as an authority on mutation in the general populace(same book in footnotes.)



That isn't a problem. Psyker hunting and psychic powers in general is part of Hereticus's bag and mutation is both the business of the Hereticus and the Malleus (especially if caused by warp exposure).

Indeed. In truth, Inquisitors - even the ones who belong to a particular Ordos, have a duty to have knowledge of and to act on any potential threats to the Imperium - I mean look at Ravenor - Ordo Xenos yet his series focuses on hunting down heretics and Chaos cultists and stopping a daemon. It also helps that some of those activities can actually overlap - you might have chaos worshipping aliens, or aliens who are promoting mutation or heresy, etc.

That doesn't even include the occasional headhunting for talent one Ordos does to another (transfers from one Ordos to another, whilst rare, are not unheard of, and it probably makes sense that Hereticus would have someone knowledgable on Xenos and Malleus matters, and vice versa.

It's pretty simple really. See, when ever the Sisters feel the need to go out and kill something they start off by going down the the local space port where they take control of all the stripclubs in the Emperor's name. Then they spend several weeks shaking the Emperor's little money maker until they've had enough twenty throne notes shoved into their undies to be able to afford to book passage to where ever it is they need to go.


They just better hope its a planet that uses paper currency. Plus, you just know the Ecclesiarchy and the Administratum are going to tithe that whatever the form of exchange.
