The Crucible Resolviate are a cabal of Magi located in the Jericho Reach that are rarely spoken of and barely tolerated by the circles of the Adeptus Mechanicus. Their Dioctal Sacellum resided on Vormos where it sat amongst mysterious xeno monoliths that had been purified by rites of consecration.
These members of the Machine Cult devote their time to the study and research of Xenos machine spirits despite the fact that the Universal Laws condemn alien mechanisms as perversions. However, the eternal Quest for Knowledge leads to a more pragmatic approach and a drive to recover alien technology so that it may be used to forge new weapons against the enemies of Mankind. This simple fact makes it difficult to ignore the opportunities afforded to the Imperium when such technology is discovered. These Magi often acquire such captured alien devices from the actions of the Ordo Xenos as well as a number of other more discrete channels.
Following the retrieval of any artefact, the Magi of the Crucible Resolviate begin the laborious task of removing the corruption from the spirit brought before them. Afterwards, they begin to probe for knowledge stored inside its form and bring it into compliance with the Universal Laws. This procedure has yielded a number of past results, such as the EMP grenade and mask screen, both of which have been declared "Technosanctus Vertifidae" by the Crucible Resolviate.
