Neverness' Inquisitorial Enclave for 2021 is now on, feel free to join!
Indeed, that sums him up nicely. Hubris McClellan is a fairly young inquisitor, yet has already garnered a rather nasty reputation for himself amongst his more senior brethren. Whilst he may be effective in executing his assigned tasks, he unfortunately requires considerable oversight when doing so lest he 'go off the rails' after which disaster invariably ensues.
The humble bolter is the least effective ranged weapon an inquisitor can wield. That said, most average heretics will still go splat when the bolt rounds connect. If they don't...well, that's where the power maul comes into play.
Assuming said heretics aren't killed during capture, then his manacles will take the unfortunate wretch into this schmuck's custody.
Additionally, and according to the other inquisitors with whom he's partnered, Hubris is difficult to work with, arrogant, and all to often suffers from delusions and grandeur, frequently speaking down to his superiors as if they were well beneath him. Thus far he's lucky he hasn't been shot by his own Ordo...
...and why yes, he is in fact based on an asshole I used* to work with, meaning I'll cheer right alongside my opponent when this fucker dies in battle. To date he's only seen combat once and survived the engagement. The battle itself was lost, though I'm quite sure that Inquisitor McClellan laid the blame at his allies' feet rather than taking any responsibility himself.
I haven't decided on just what chapter icon will adorn that rhino door he's standing on, yet...
*Pro tip: When you get written up for gross insubordination, don't login to your company's payroll app and give yourself two days vacation (amounting to a 4-day weekend) without bothering to tell anybody about it. Dumb shit like that equals immediate termination when you show up to work the next week. Fucking idiot.
