Inquisitor Valeria has always believed that the work of the Inquisition should be guided by the spirit and the intent of lore: to use the weapons of the enemy against the enemy. For Valeria there are no lines that cannot be crossed and anything is permitted in the defense of the Imperium. In pursuit of this goal, Valeria has become a collector of arcane and lost technological knowledge. She has spent many decades exploring the ruins of many far-flung worlds and met with the Eldar, Hrud, Ulumeathi, and Draxians to expand humanity's store of knowledge. The recovery of the Dimensional Forge has been the crowning glory of Valeria's life's work. Able to create a null zone light years in diameter, where Daemons cannot enter, the Forge was lost in an event known as The Howling. Tracking it to the Hive World of Cavlock, which was under Daemonic attack, Valeria would be tracked by the Puritan Inquisitor Emil Darkhammer. Issuing an Exterminatus order, Darkhammer saw to it that whatever Valeria was trying to uncover would be reduced to cinders.
So began a vendetta between Valeria and Darkhammer. Having declared Darkhammer Excommunicate Traitoris, she has pursued him across all of Segmentum Obscurus, seeking revenge under the pretext of justice. However no other Inquisitor has intervened in their feud, fearing it could escalate into a wider clash within the Inquisition.
Raid on Solemnace
In 793.M41, Inquisitor Valeria would raid the Necron Tomb World of Solemnace, seeking answers as to why the world was spared from Hive Fleet Behemoth. Valeria's party was wiped out by the planets' defenders, led by Trazyn the Infinite, and she was forced to retreat with her surviving forces. During her encounter with the Necron Lord though, Valeria had been infected with Mindshackle Scarabs; as Trazyn hoped to eventually make use of the Inquisitor. However the Ordo Hereticus Inquisitor Greyfax, later discovered Valeria had been infected by the Necron Lord and killed the compromised[3a] Ordo Xenos Inquisitor.[3b]
