The Alien Beast Within

An Officio Assassinorum short story

Callidus Assassin Meh'Lindi is sent on her most dangerous and demanding mission: to infiltrate and destroy a cult of monstrous genestealer hybrids.


Meh'Lindi, the foremost assassin of the Callidus temple, is tasked with the most demanding mission of her career - to infiltrate a genestealer cult disguised as one of the monstrous four-armed hybrids and destroy them from within. As she adopts the mindset of a alien-influenced cultist, Meh'Lindi starts to worry that she may lose herself and, even worse, fail in her mission and doom a world to destruction...

Written by Ian Watson. This story also appears in the anthology Deathwing.
