Menials are unskilled workers of the Adeptus Terra who may be shifted from job to job as required. They serve as transport drivers, labourers, sanitizers and in the myriad other non-skilled jobs.[1]

Menials are recruited from the population of non-adepts, but may gain the title of Adept themselves. They are very proud of this honour and will bear any indignity to keep it.[1] Recruitment into the Adeptus Terra, even as a lowly Menial, is the only escape from the terrible squalor of Terra. Unlike the skilled hereditary slave workers, scribes and other functionaries who make up a great part of the Administratum, Menials do not pass their title and position on to their children.[Needs Citation]
