Inquisitor Victoria Edden-Strophes Ray was born on Scintilla. Her parents are both active in the goverment and her father is the Lord General Solar. An exceptional child with a genius-level IQ, Ray got her start in The Inquisition early. At the age of 13, she was sent off by her parents to train under Torquemada Coteaz at Nemesis Tessra. She served under Coteaz and quickly rose through the ranks, and at age 34 became a full Inquisitor in The Ordos Hereticus. It was in Ray's first year as an Inquisitor that it was rumored that she had an affair with Sector Governor Marius Hax. Some whisper that it may still be continuing to this day.
Inquisitor Ray is a mover and shaker in political circles. She stays involved in both the politics of Scintilla and of The Imperium as a whole, and believes that a strong community leads to a strong regime. The Inquisitor indulges her brilliant mind by writing about her numerous battles against the witch, herectic and mutant; The writings are called The I-Files.
