Commissar Kahn, a little known commissar from offworld, in conjunction with a small arbite task force, led the 107th PDF regiment into the underhive earlier this week upon hearing rumors about a Tyranid infestation.
Fully 100 Noble PDF troopers, and 20 Arbite enforcers descended into the depths of the undercity intent upon removing yet another threat plagueing our fair hive.
Eye witness accounts said less than 20 survivors made it out alive, driving their troop carriers as fast as they could, a wild look in their eyes. There was no sign of Kahn or his aids.
The governor and his ilk stood by helplessly, paralyzed with fear! First the mutations, and now the Tyranids!?
Fortunately Lord Sector Marius Hax’ specially selected Commissars are made of sterner stuff! Days after the surviving troopers fled, an explosion rocked the underhive. The entire city shook with the blast.
Shortly thereafter, the grime covered commissar, and his band of heroes clawed there way from the depths of the underworld!
The surviving troopers told a tale of horror! Giant clawed beasts hacking them to pieces, helpless citizens of the imperium infested with the Tyranid plague, forced to attack their fellow citizens, and worst of all, the fusion of xeno and divine human flesh made real in the form of Human-Tyranid hybrids made solely to breed and kill!
The Tyranids would not carry the day however! Newly promoted Sargent Jos, one of 12 survivors, told us what he saw first hand, “Everyone knows no good comes from seeing a commissar, and Commissar Kahn was no exception. But there is nobody I’d rather have at my back, pushing me forward. Balls of Steel, and as indomitable as an Imperial Battle Cruiser!”
The veteran soldier paused a moment, recalling the horrible encounter further,”We came upon him, the commisssar I mean, in the tunnels, after some horrible fights. We had barely managed to kill any of the genestealers. Mostly we just ran…” he swallowed again,”but when we found the commissar, he was standing on a pile of corpses, five deep in places! Genestealers, Hybrids, infected, all of them blackened. Their blue blood everwhere! Every man who was with him was down on the ground, dead or dying. Kahn had propped up any of the survivors he could find, and put them against the wall and tended their wounds as best he could. he sat there waiting for us, smoking on lho stick on a pile of tyranid corpses! A real hero of the Imperium he is!”
The Commissar and his band then proceeded to track them deeper into the bowels of the city, led by the only arbite with enough courage to follow him, and not turn tale and flee! They tracked the Tyranids to their lair, but instead of fighting them in their lair, they detonated a large bomb, collapsing the sections above the Tyranids.
“We decided to try and kill them at once, because otherwise, they could have split up and fled from us. Them bugs are fast!”
It has been noted that this group was seen in the council halls during the unmasking of Baron Rhines plot to poison and mutate the population, and played a part in the apprehending him when he tried to escape, and bears similarity to the Omega Death Squad. Sources within the military also indicate they were also responsible for putting a halt to the arson in the grain district. It has been speculated they were the ones who supplied Baron Carrs curious information, as sources close to the baron mumbled softly that the Baron wouldnt know a good idea even if it hit him in the face!
When Asked about their involvement, and if they were the death squad, Commissar Kahns Techpriest glared menacingly at me and responded “Thought begets heresy, heresy begets retribution”
I then decided to give these elusive heroes the peace and quiet they Sorely deserved.
But just who is this Commissar Kahn, and his band of stalwart heroes? Nobody seems to be talking.
