The only way an inquisitor can be incorruptible by chaos is if he or she is also secretly a member of the illuminati. Though I don't know how much of the illuminati/sensei fluff is still considered canon.

The human appendix. Proof of a higher power. A divine kill switch so to speak.

No one really likes a smartass, but people tend to like a dumbass even less.

Not entirely so Chompy Bits. There are some inquisitors who's faith is so strong that corruption is impossible for them. It may not be as flawless as the faith of the likes of a Grey Knight, but inquisitors can augment their own faith with knowledge.

After all, knowledge is power and those who know how to use it can. I mean look at the likes of Coteaz and Karamazov, faith so strong it is unlikely that they can ever be corrupted or changed.

Damnation is paved on good intentions; subtle and sugar coated or blunt and honest
A hero is someone who steps up when everyone else backs down.
Popularity is what people strive for when they lack the strength to be themselves.


Seriously, is it really that hard to write reviews without spoilers?

Makes me wonder why similar methods of training and indoctrination aren't made more readily available to, say, inquisitors for example... It seems that making grey knighs incorruptible is not really a complete solution if those that hold their leash can be tainted not to metion all the other toys and perks corrupt inquisitors can (mis)use. I suppose inquisitors need to be allowed to be susceptible to chaos in order to uncover it and root it out...

I think you've partially hit the nail on the head there. Inquisitors need to be quite open minded and free thinking for their job. They need to be able to think like a heretic would to a certain degree, to be able to manipulate and toy around with people, assets, agents etc. Grey Knights are highly, highly specialised, you don't get much more specialised than them really. But as a result they fit a very particular niche and can't be utilised for much else, they aren't going to investigate things or develop agents and assets.

They are going to be called in to righteously kick the shit out of deamons and heretics before fucking off back to Titan for tea and crumpets, leaving the chaos gods thinking "I fucking hate those guys"

I might just have to Sig that

Back on topic

I think that like Astartes they're in a position of power and power corrupts etc. and that they want more, once chaos promises you power you cant really think about much else. Unless your very pure of course, like Grey Knights, or those pure Inquisitors mentioned above
