Translation as follows:

Trial did not go as expected, was convicted of planting of evidence despite a lack of proper protocol, evidence, and basic decency. Fortunately Cortez was able to intervene somehow and I am now under his guardian ship. I am sure this is just a formality.

Afterwards I returned to the safe house and began synthesising some chemicals to use in explosives as well as a highly potent neural-toxin for the discreet elimination of any heretics we encounter in a position of power. Soon after Cortez and Dretch went to investigate a possible cult, they were invited to a “Initiation” and decided to infiltrate, at this initiation they were told they would need to go a spirit journey. Clearly some human trial, due to this we swapped locater and tracking bracelet between me and Cortez allowing me to track their location in case of danger.

As I continued in my production Arbite Cortez and Dretch made there way into the spirit journey, I also travelled to Capax III and acquired lab equipment to further my needs. At this point I recieved a Data Vox stating that another arbite by the name of luna was arriving in system. I proceeded to greet Lola as is the standard among the locals. After this I informed her of my intent to track down Arbite Cortez and Assistant Dretch as they had been missing for a period of 3 cycles, which caused me some worry. She went to get support from the local Arbites, and I gathered some explosives, my weapons and a small vial of dimythelhydride.

Awaiting my fellow adept at a intersection nearby, I heard gunshots and a large explosion. As I had not seen any other humans on my way to the crossroads, I assumed the worse and set off. I arrived too late to intervene in the battle but was able to save a wounded machine spirit. Unable to find Lola’s body I proceeded to follow what appeared to be the tracks her abductors left. Arriving at the back of the chapel I had originally been heading too, I immediately assumed combat protocols and entered through the back. I observed a priest of some sort as well as 3 associates preparing to sacrifice my fellow adept. As this would be unacceptable to my mission parameters as well as my own goals of studying human anatomy I engaged. It became immediately apparent that the priest was more than human as he simply ordered his men forward after 3 laser blasts to his head. I continued the engagement using grenades, and fell back behind the wall. As I was ordered to surrender I initiated my deception protocols and faked a disarmament, I also set a KG of C4 as a distraction on a 60 second timer (this procedure must be reassessed).

Upon attempting to restrain me I overcharged my potentia coil and overloaded two of the men’s biological cogitators. The third attempted to destroy my central control system, but fortunately its robust construction surprised him. I quickly attempted to break him by accelerating my clenched fist into his cranial bridge. It took 3 direct hits before his motor functions failed him. Unfortunately this opened my person up to 3 direct hits from what I can only assume was some sort of hand held tank cannon. The massive internal damage I survived was only non lethal by virtue of pure luck. I believe my non standard biological construction factored into this as my vital organs were located in different areas than those targeted. Realising I was about to be forcibly deactivated I tried one last time to deceive my attacker. It worked. I was able to arc a vial of my dimythelhydride into his optical sensors and permanently disable him.

I was unable to relish my victory as I immediately had to tend to a knife wound Acolyte Lola had received. Hearing voices and footsteps we retreated and liberated another machine spirit giving us two Armoured Personnel Carriers. Returning to the safe house I put Lola into the newly christened recovery ward. I then proceeded to attempt to panic to convince Acolyte Dretch of the danger we had discovered, I am not sure how successful this was.

In closing this combat has caused me to realise that to properly maintain and repair my charges I must also be able to protect them from damage should there be need. As such I am requisitioning some items to help me in this task.

Also requisitioning the following:

Guardsman Shield
Fury Pattern Laspistol
“Red Dot” Sighting Instrument
Flak armour set
4 Combat servitors
Medical Supplies
Medical Bed
Medical Equipment (Toxin rod, surgery table, monitoring equipment, etc)
1 Medical Servo-Skull
Data on combat protocols
Data on known system cults
Data on past heretical activity
