The Phasian War - Imperial Command (1)

Deep within the sanctums of the Inquisition House a small selection of Imperial servants met in the shadows. A single light strained to illuminate the stylized "I" of the Speaker's Stone. A general of the OPDF stood there now with a hand-held holo-projector.
"The attacks have been mainly concentrated on the South-East quarter of the Hive, surely we could take reinforcements from Hive Secondus." He paused to attempt to identify a response but the darkness thwarted him. "Since the first attack on 42 Gamma the Black Legion daemon has been kept at bay." Finished, he stepped from the light.
Lord Inquisitor Kaluha stepped onto the Speaking Stone. "No, we are outnumbered," his gaze fell upon the OPDF general, "if one marine is a hundred guardsmen. There are two legions who oppose us. And let us not forget the daemon world we have a gate to. Although they did attempt to redeem themselves, they are in the company of Peltops and that bastard Dragger."
"From the reports that Pilot had of the ordeal, the Wolfram are heretics if only a step too far." The Palatine of the Daughters of Odin stood in the glow of the Speaking Stone. "That is still a step too far and they must be punished. Although the threat of the xenos will worsen unless burned out." She scanned the shadows, " the Daughters are mobilizing to keep the purity of this planet."
Phoboes, fresh from the Mechanicus medicae, stepped up to speak. "I propose that Lord Inquisitor J Daniels lead the South-Eastern defense quarter, his expertise with the witch and connection with the Daughters will be optimal. 609th units will be deployed to support the main Hive."

And almost as though forgotten, "Edam has confirmed, no ETA."
