Trials (Short Story)
Trials is a short story by Rachel Harrison.
As their war against the Chaos cult known as the Sighted rages on, the 11th Antari Rifles have been forced into the safety of underground tunnels. As her foes bombard the surface, Commissar Severina Raine patrols the tunnels, and finds kinship with another survivor of the Schola Progenium. Remembering the trials she underwent as a would-be commissar, she asks Militarum Tempestus captain Andren Fel about what he underwent. As they share stories, both face up to the horror of their pasts, and the hope of their future.
