Taddeus has spread the Imperial Cult across the Galaxy for many years, working alongside both Planetary Governors and Imperial Guard commanders. Known for his incorruptible nature, in truth bringing the justice of the faithful to those loftiest of individuals is the one true joy Taddeus indulges in. Taddeus sees images in the pyre-flames of the heretics he burns, and whilst burning a Imperial Navy Sailor for spreading rumors of a Blackstone Fortress witnessed a vision that demanded he travel to the Western Reaches to carry out the Emperor's mission. This has led him to Precipice and the Seventh Blackstone Fortress.
Guided by his visions, Taddeus brought his acolyte Pious Vorne with him and worked alongside Janus Draik in uncovering the Fortress' mysteries. He has contracted Draik to recover the Ecclesiarchy relic that is believed to be aboard the vessel known as the Eye of Hermius. Taddeus believes this relic could close the Great Rift.
