“We determine the guilty. We decide the punishment.”_
—Lex Imperialis
The Adeptus Arbites is the Imperial Adepta that serves as the galactic police force of the Imperium of Man, responsible for enforcing Imperial Law (the Lex Imperialis) on all Imperial-controlled worlds. They have been granted the right by the High Lords of Terra to serve as judge, jury and executioner to any Imperial citizen they discover having broken Imperial law.

Imperial Law on the Halo rim is seldom felt or seen, on Kyros this rings true. The Arbites control a modest precinct house in the imperial capital Tinos, with few assets beyond that city’s limits. Modest by core imperial standards the precinct represents one of the most fortified complexes on the planet. In total the Arbites number less than a few hundred individuals. The Arbites are force seldom seen publicly in Kyros but have been influential in a number of historical events often disposing treacherous city tyrants even Imperial governors.
Rumour has it tradition has charged them with some more exotic responsibility’s, talk of blacked out Valkyrie gunships moving in out of the northern tundra wastes attest to this.
