King of Kings
Prior to the groups induction into the Inquisition under Ozymandias another group was in their place.
This group consisted of another nine acolytes, with whom the group shortly after arrival at the Outpost. The other nine gave the group a crash course in their new roles, including the Three Rules and how to receive missions and send reports.
The other nine were very secretive, even with the new acolytes, with only two of their number associating openly with the new group. Each of these other nine were responsible for the selection of the current acolytes, having either met them previously during a disaster, or having heard through channels of the acolytes prowess.
Other information gleaned through the Other Nine is that they had been working for over eight years and would soon be going off on their most important mission to date. Furthermore it was revealed that they were not the first nine to serve the inquisitor, and the Outpost has been active for over seventy years by Ozymandias.
