Oath sworn by Adeptus Arbites Cadets

Who are the Adeptus Arbites?

While peace and order are maintained by local security forces under an Imperial Governor, the Arbites were formed primarily to enforce the strict doctrines of Imperial Law, leaving the enforcement of local laws to native agencies (usually under the close watch of the Arbites). In the utter state of lawlessness Malton exists in the Adeptus Arbites is tasked with the duty of hunting down those who disregard the lives of fellow survivors. Known in Imperial Law as Traitors and Heretics, the Judges of the Arbites hunt down such scum with relentless fervor.

History and Purpose

Founded in the wake of the chaos and disintegration of the Horus Heresy, the Arbites were established as the means of keeping order within the Imperium. They do not concern themselves with enforcement of local laws, leaving that to planetary governments, but instead on enforcing Imperial Law and ensuring the loyalty of the planetary governors. Governors who feel they can let the Imperial Tithe slide for a year or ignore calls for help from neighboring systems often desist merely with a glance at the armored precinct houses of the grim Judges of the Imperium. Often the Judges are the first line of defense in a system in danger of or in a state of rebellion when the Planetary Defense Force can no longer be relied upon.
