005.M42 To Serve the Emperor: A Commissar's Life, written by Commissar Ciaphas Cain is published. The writing of his memoirs spurred him to gather and write a full archive of his glorious career. However, this more candid memoir never sees the light of day, being immediately put under Inquisitorial seal by order of Inquisitor Amberley Vail. The archive simply contains far too much sensitive and restricted information. She organizes the archive, naming it the Cain Archive, and publishes it "for Inquisitors" only. A high number of Inquisitors read it. She is even persuaded to expand it considerably, making it somewhat of a bestseller among the Inquisition.
