Part 46: Casualties Post-Mission 10
Situation Update: The Blood Ravens inform me that the Tyranid warrior-beast that killed Captain Thule has been slain. However, the cost of this vengeance seemed to far exceed any benefit which might be derived. Upon this servant voicing this to Apothecary Gordian of the Blood Ravens, he immediately switched the communication device over to Force Commander Priad. All questions directed at Priad were met with a silent but menacing stare until at last this servant was forced to relent.
