Rune Priest (Adeptus Mechanicus)
|This article is about the Adeptus Mechanicus rank, for the Space Wolves rank see Rune Priest|
Rune Priests are a type of Tech Priest within the Adeptus Mechanicus, not to be confused with the Rune Priests of the Space Wolves Space Marine Chapter. Adeptus Mechanicus Rune Priests scribe runes and chant liturgies over machines as part of the Cult Mechanicus's rituals of initiation given to new machinery. A Rune Priest is trained in the arcane branches of scientific lore such as intuitive mechanics, speculation, and improvisation. They are famous for their lateral thinking, and may be called in to solve problems when strict logic and standard procedure fail.
