"Well well, well. Look what we have here. I feeling you had guts, detective. I just didn't realize how badly you wanted them spilt."The Magus is the public face of a Genestealer Cult on Hive World Purgatory. He acts as the "new mayor's spokesman," and attempts to foil Detective Bruce Norring's investigation.
A Magus is a special genestealer hybrid born from psychic parents. The Magus is a potent psyker himself, and will use his charisma to bring he cult together, as well as divert suspicion away from the cult. Being among the most human-looking hybrids, the Magus will be out in charge of any front organizations used by the cult. He will also act as an enforcer of the Patriarch's will.
TTS Canon Edit
The unnamed Magus intercepts Bruce on his way to the mayor's residence, and introduces himself as the new mayor's spokesman. Bruce was immediately suspicious of this "uncanny excuse for a man." The Magus attempted to have Bruce silenced before he could reveal the existence of the cult, but when the latter snuck into the cult's lair, he was instead to be made into a gene host. The Magus and the rest of the cult, however, were all killed when Inquisitor Adrielle Quist suddenly emerged from the Warp.
