Scout Master Hector
The Tireless Eye
Scout Master Hector has seen and heard things that would make even most marines tremble. He is the oldest living member of the Deathwatch in service of the reach, and is in full command of Deathwatch intelligence. If it didn’t come from the Ordo Xenos, it probably came through him. He commands 7 other carefully trained marines who volunteered to sacrifice the glory of the front line to provide support for the marines who still fight the wars. Hector’s scouts are spread across the reach, and in many cases command their own handful of inquisitorial acolytes granted to them by the Ordo Xenos for the sake of gathering information on the ground, and being ready to provide support on a moments notice.
If a marine finds himself on a mission requesting supplies, military support, or information, it’s going to be one of Hector’s scouts that gets it to them. Each scout is trained to act on their own, but they will not surrender information without direct orders from Hector himself. As a result, it is generally considered a good idea to befriend Hector.
Very little is actually known about Hector himself, except that he used to be a member of the Raven Guard. He is easy to work with and reliable, but is very quiet and unlikely to say anything unless asked directly.
