Nice twist to this story.  And despite it all, it basically lets a Manei Domini be something of a good guy.  Precentor Gazael is fanatical as all get out, but he clearly would rather save lives than take them.  Not someone you'd want to face across the battlefield, but someone whose moral compass still works.
To the utmost!

A great story. I liked this one sooo much.  O0
Need a few stories more with the PoV of the Protectorate.

I like stories that show the "enemy" as three dimensional.  Makes the game more interesting.
