Amalathian: A branch of puritanical inquisitors. They are less strict than Monodominants, and are more subtle in their work. Their aim is to maintain the status-quo of the Imperium above all else, destroying all persons and groups who may threaten it.

Amalathians believe in strength through unity, and that the Emperor has a divine plan. Until the plan is revealed, they aim to maintain order in his name. They also despise factions within organisations and the in-fighting it causes - an irony not lost on Inquisitor Eisenhorn when the Inquisition as a whole is made of many subtypes of puritan and radical.

That Amalatians get their name from their conclave, which is at Mount Amalath. The planetary location for this mountain is unknown, but is assumed to be Terra.

The only known, named Amalathian is Inquisitor Gregor Eisenhorn.
