Playing Patience

A Ravenor short story

The secret origin of Patience Kys: When Ravenor hunts heretics on a dismal world, the last thing he expects to find is a young woman with a remarkable – and deadly – gift.

It's the origin story of one of Ravenor's fascinating followers.


A young woman growing up in poverty on the dismal world of Sameter, Patience Kys has a remarkable gift. She knows what people are going to do, and she can move things with her mind. It is her greatest secret, and her deadliest talent. When her life spirals out of control, Patience is set on a crash course for destruction, until a chance encounter with Inquisitor Gideon Ravenor gives her a chance to use her powers for the good of the Imperium.
