|Power||Anti Personnel Turret|
"Make your own glory through their destruction."
– Tomás Guerra
The Inquisitor, also known by his real name, Tomás Guerra, is a hunter in the Garden. His power is the Anti Personnel Turret, and his default loadout is the Snake Bite and the Mauler 190. He can also use the TriSynkt .45C, once it is unlocked.
The Inquisitor is a cunning hunter capable of forcing scavengers out of hiding. He feeds off the fear of those who dare to oppose him, relishing in his preys’ suffering.
Tomás Guerra felt like something was missing from his life, until he joined The Pure, a fanatical group who execute the will of a charismatic leader.
Now he heads an inquisition, uncovering plots and quelling dissent with ruthless efficiency. Any who dare to oppose The Pure are located and thrown into The Bloodharvest, where Guerra hunts them down, for the final time.
His face may be hidden, but his gaze is penetrating. Pray that it does not fall on you.
Tomás Guerra always loved being a Hunter, and was one of the highest ranked in São Paulo, but he often felt like the glory and accolades weren't enough; that he was destined for more.
Then Yeva Sushko took over the worldwide leadership of The Collective. She promised to bring her Firm into a new age, a true path that would result in the betterment of all mankind. Her magnetic personality quickly inspired a devotion in her followers that bordered on the fanatical.
A group formed around her, carrying out her will and crushing dissent. Tomás Guerra saw in them a cause, a purpose for his life, so he joined up. They became more zealous, living a monk-like existence, and calling themselves The Pure.
As The Pure gained strength and influence, Guerra moved quickly through the hierarchy. His dedication to Sushko's cause and his skill at weeding out members of Turning Point and The True Hunters, uncovering plots, and quelling dissent meant that he was soon leading the São Paulo Enclave's Inquisition.
His name has become feared, his methods swift and brutal. Anyone he considers a threat is immediately thrown into The Bloodharvest, where Guerra personally hunts them down, killing them with head shots to ensure that they cannot be resurrected. He collects the masks of those he 'cleanses' this way, wearing them as a warning to others.
Guerra was born with a deformity to his arm and had always chosen, in this age where limbs are replaced with barely a second thought, to retain it. He had kept it hidden, but now he uncovers it proudly, finally sure about who he is. In the Deathgardens, he allows himself to use a simple prosthesis, to make wielding a weapon easier.
In rituals, to reaffirm their clarity and commitment to the cause, The Pure scarify and mutilate their bodies, letting unclean thoughts leave through their sliced skin. Tomás Guerra goes further, employing a mechanism that continually cleans his blood, literally scrubbing him of corruption.
He keeps his face hidden by a mask at all times, as he considers himself unimportant - an anonymous weapon, doing the work of Sushko. He rarely talks, for the same reason, only speaking regularly to Sushko and other high-level members of The Pure. He does, however, speak to those he is investigating, and it's often said that, if you hear his voice, you're already dead.
|Anti-Personnel Turret||Place up to 2 Anti-Personnel Turrets||"You can't be in two places at once. I know, you've got the drones to help you,
but they are missing one vital element: firepower.
Drop a turret and it'll be both your eyes and your trigger finger."
|Snake Bite||Rifle||Damage increased by 2%||"Assault Rifle with a medium to long range"|
|Mauler 190||Shotgun||Damage falloff range increased by 0.25 meters||"Shotgun with short to medium range"|
|TriSynkt .45c||250||Rifle||Reload time decreased by 7%||"Three shot Burst Rifle with a medium to long effective range"|
|Auto Collect||Auto collect Crates in an extended range (+1 meter)||"When it comes down to it, power is everything. But you're a Hunter, you know that. If I boost the power of your suit's interaction transmitter, you'll be able to trigger crates from further away."|
|So Close||Damaging a Scavenger Delivering Blood returns Ammo and Stamina (+5.5% Stamina, +6% Ammo)||"Everyone likes a good story, like a Scavenger getting just within reach of a Blood Bank before being downed. It's dramatic, and I've been told it's popular. If you manage something like that, I'll make sure the system rewards you."|
|Speed Demon||Increased Sprint Speed (+7%)||"Enhanced bearing and more powerful actuators in all your suit's joints will mean that you can sprint more quickly."|
|Power Booster (Turrets)||Reduced Anti-Personnel Turret cooldown (-15%)||"Turrets are large objects, full of electronics and AI. They're a drain on your portabl printer, which limits how often you can deploy them. With some judicious tweaks here and there, I'll bet I can improve that time limit."|
|Stunning||Reduced Shock Cooldown (-10%)||"I can change out the materials used in electrial system, making it more efficient and reducing the energy drain of each shock."|
|Great Shape||Increased Stamina regeneration (+5%)||"The air in the Garden isn't the best, as it's contaminated with printing by-products. If I provide you with a clearer source of air, you'll find that you'll recover from exertion a lot more quickly."|
|Deny Deny Deny||Refill 30% Stamina when denying a Health Crate||"I know it probably gives you a morale boost, denying the Scavengers access to crates, but it can also provide a more physical effect. Your suit can ingest the health nanomachines and repurpose them into an energy source."|
|Maximum Stamina||Maximum Stamina increased by 10%||"If you'll allow me access to your blood filtering system, I will set it to also remove lactic acid from your body, purifying you further and also increasing your stamina."|
|Reflection||Head||Tomás Guerra's mask was ripped from the corpse of a defeated Scavenger, back at the start of his career. He then customized it to reflect the asymmetrical nature of his body.|
|The Pure||Torso||Protection, method of intimidation, ceremonial object and medical device; Guerra's armor is all of these things and more.|
|Questions||Legs||Because, if history has taught us anything, it's that you can't have too many pouches.|
|The Righteous Sword||Snake Bite||"I want to help you find that purity, all of you. But there are those who would oppose this process, and I need you to help cleanse the world of them." - Yeva Sushko, Leader of The Pure|
|The Way Forward||Mauler 190||"Together, rid of all those who would hold us back, we will have the strength to move forward as a species, into a new age, of enlightenment and joy." - Yeva Sushko, Leader of The Pure|
|Purity||Trisynkt .45C||"Purity is a state of mind, of being. It lies within all of us, but few can find it, as it is hidden by mounds of filth" - Yeva Sushko, Leader of The Pure|
