Disturbing Practices of Malal Cults

My fellow Inquisitors,

I have recently been studying the cults springing up in the worship of the god Malal. These cults, while not worshipping the standard Imperial Cult, appear to be harmless to the Imperium and, indeed, helpful at times. They claim that their god is the sworn enemy of Chaos, that is all entities created of or worshipping the gods Khorne, Slaanesh, Tzeentch and Nurgle. This appears to be true; in the few instances warp entities created by Malal have been witnessed, they have been working to destroy the schemes and followers of the four major Chaos powers.

These cults are very useful to all members of the Inquisition, being ready to tackle Chaos in an instant. But this is not what I am wanting to discuss with this report.

I have begun noticing within the past few months a pattern of double-worship within the cults. While they revere Malal as a god, they also worship an ancient race they refer to as the Old Ones. It is the belief of many cult members that this ancient race created their god, shaping him from their thoughts and giving form to him so that he may battle the forces of Chaos. The validity of these claims are uncertain at this point, but it is definitely something worth looking into. I'm sure I need not remind you all where else we have heard the term "Old Ones" recently.

I shall investigate this further, and suggest that others do as well.
