Lord Commissar, Liaison to the Mechanicum, Wendell Rath

Lord Commissar, Liaison to the Mechanicum, Wendell Rath

The Thule Subsector Mechanicum (off Stenberg Forge) is not fully trusted; they rebelled back in M31, and while they turned their back to the rebels after learning that they had been duped into the rebellion, the Imperium has a long memory. Thus, to this day, every Mechanicus Field Enginseer attached to an Imperium military unit is accompanied by a Commissar to monitor their loyalty.

Since only the Enginseer is capable of independent initiative, and since the enginseer is usually engrossed in some incomprehensible techno-ritual, the commissars usually spend their time harangueing the regular troopers instead.

Wendell Rath is something of an anomaly. Being a full Lord Commissar, it should be far beneath his lofty station to monitor a single field Enginseer. It could be that the Enginseer in question is particularly suspicious, but the men of the second company rather thinks that he offended someone important.
