Kleopatra Arx is an Ordo Malleus Inquisitor who served as the Inquisitorial Representative on the High Lords of Terra during the Thirteenth Black Crusade.[1b]

Inquisitor Arx was known as a reformer who sought to overhaul and better unify the many orders and cabals of the Inquisition. She was one of the High Lords who supported Chancellor of the Imperial Council Lev Tieron's attempt to push through a dissolution of the Edict of Restraint that would free the Adeptus Custodes from their vows on Terra.[1a]

Later during the crisis of the Noctis Aeterna and the formation of the Great Rift Kleopatra Arx proposed abandoning much of Terra to anarchy and instead have the overstretched and desperate Imperial forces focus on defending key facilities such as the Imperial Palace and Forbidden Fortress. This grim decision was supported by the likes of Master of the Administratum Irthu Haemotalion and Chancellor of the Imperial Council Lev Tieron, but they graciously let Arx take whatever blame for it might arise by dubbing it the Arx Doctrine.[1c]

Following the incident on the Astronomican that saw the death of Master Leops Franck and the disappearance of Erasmus Crowl, Arx dispatched Inquisitor Latan Zijes to find Crowl and discover the truth of the matter. Zijes eventually rendezvoused with Luce Spinoza, Crowl, Navradaran and journeyed into discover the Mechanicum dealings with the Dark Eldar to save the Golden Throne as well as the Black Throne project.[2b] In truth, Arx is aware of the failures of the Golden Throne and seeks to repair the damage through her own methods.[2c]
