As the most senior of the mainstay of the Silent Sisterhood's tactical formations, the Vigilator Cadres are often deployed in battle in order to identify and excise the key components of an enemy force at close quarters. Whether their quarry is a single rogue psyker among a civilian hab-block or a resistance movement thousands strong, they serve to root out the command centers responsible and remove them, allowing the other units deployed in tangent to destroy the scattered resistance. As their nature proceeds, almost all Vigilators are equipped with an Execution Blade or any CQC weapon making them their role and function the complete opposite of the Prosecutor Cadre, with the Null Maiden Cadre being in-between.
In larger detachments, the Vigilator Cadres also provide a greater level of versatility to the front-line assault, and the effect of their sweeping blades on the ranks of a cult rabble or rebel militia is as much a psychological weapon as a direct tool of war. Nor is the weapon itself idly chosen, as since time immemorial beheading ever considered a sure proof of death against the witch and those accursed by dark forces, and often has this in practice proved true, even against those riven with the power of the Empyrean.
As their name implies, the Vigilators' charge outside of direct militant action is often to oversee the collection of the Great Tithe and the escorting, under threat of death, of individuals to the Black Ships.
