The second installment of the Hereteks of House Sinekai by Jake Bruticus, Magos Pust’s chief area of expertise is the creation of gholams and chimerics as seen in the photos. Magos Echidnia is Pust’s frequent companion, though the pair are very different in both appearance and personality. While Pust is loud, bloated and jovial, Echidnia is silent and cold, her withered body seemingly comprised of nothing more than dust and rotted cable. Even by the standards of the Dark Mechanicus, Echidnia is a twisted genius, and her frequent inventions are far beyond the scope of most other heretek’s understanding. One of her first innovations was to transplant her nervous system into a cyber-scorpion, which is capable of detaching from her body and scuttling away to act independently.
