Aurek Herrenvolk is a powerful psyker Ordo Hereticus Inquisitor, who once served as an Interrogator for Inquisitor Brutus Schenker.[1a]


In M42, he was sent to investigate Cult spree killings within the Spetzghast System, which Aurek did from his personal warship, the Dread Sovereign. The Inquisitor was considered a natural choice for the task, as a notable case at the beginning of Aurek's career involved mass ritual slaughter by Chaos Death Cult berserkers on Gasaki V. To aid him in his quest, Aurek gathered the aid of the Sisters of the Order of the Immaculate Flame[1a], who were led by Canoness Diamanta Santhonax[1b]. He was also given command of the 123rd Pontifical Strikes Inquisitorial Stormtroopers, who were pulled from their service with his former master, Brutus Schenker. As the investigation into the cult killings began, Aurek was rarely seen and relied on his retinue to give orders to the Sisters and Stormtroopers. The Pontifical Strikes began to speculate about the reasons why and some thought Aurek likely suffered from a horrific disfigurement or debilitation. They believed this was likely earned during the Inquisitor's famous service in the Hellicon Mitigations.[1a]
