"The Midnighter performs the unconfessed rites of St. Joshua; the secret ministrations of midnight, the holy transition of the owned to the unowned and the unseen to the seen. He has made the unknown known, and toppled an invisible throne."

[…] Your shrine to St. Joshua is draped in irrigo. Once you’ve finished the rites, you barely remember them. You pull your old chess-piece from your pocket and consign it - and the memories it sustains - to the altar-fire.

Description summary:
You manage to track down a Queen in the Great Game, stealing her earliest childhood memento, which involved burning down the orphanage she grew up in, and delivering it to the Detective who was tasked with discovering the perpetrator of the arson / multiple-homicide of said orphanage.
