Untouchable: A psychic 'mutant', the opposite of a psyker. Untouchables have a negative psychic field that can block or reduce psychic attacks in their vicinty, and which can even make near by psykers uncomfortable. The more powerful Untouchables are also capable of protecting against attacks from Daemonhosts, as their anti-psychic field disrupts the Daemonhost's connection with the material world.

Inquisitor Eisenhorn is the only known Inquisitor to have actively recruited numerous Untouchables in to a staff unit, known as the Distaff. The first Untouchable in Eisenhorn's retinue was Alizabeth Bequin.
