Mita Ashyn was an operative of the Ordo Xenos.
|This page contains spoilers for:||Lord of the Night (Novel)|
At thirty-one years of age, she had served six years as a Explicator under Inquisitor Petrai Levoix of the Ordo Xenos. Among her recorded deeds were overcoming the puppet wyrds of the Ork warlord leading Waaagh! Shalkaz; defeating the Magi of a genestealer cult in the Marquand Straits; "breaking the mind" of a Hruddite Demagogue in the Pleanar campaign; and the capture of a Witchblade in the Ylir uprisings, which earned her a citation from the Congresium Xenos.
Kaustus proved to be a difficult and mercurial master, his methods driving her to near despair before he declared her a traitor during his investigations. His disinterest in her claims that a Traitor Marine of the Night Lords Legion were later proved to be the result of Eldar mind control. She lost her arm in a fight between Talonmaster Zso Sahaal and the Daemon Prince Krieg Acerbus over the Corona Nox.
It is thought that she survived the wound and escaped the doomed world with Sahaal.
