Calixis Sector

The Calixis Sector is an Imperial sector in Segmentum Obscurus near the Halo Stars and the Eye of Terror. Conquered by Lord Militant Angevin a thousand years ago, the Calixis Sector contains many heavily populated and important worlds, though it lies a great distance from the Imperium’s heartland. Its first governor was Drusus, one of Angevin’s most capable generals, a man now revered as an Imperial Saint.

Sub-Sectors:

  1. Golgenna Reach
  2. Drusus Marches
  3. Adrantis Nebula
  4. Hazeroth Abyss
  5. Malfian
  6. Josian Reach
  7. Markayn Marches
  8. The Periphery

Government

The Hive World of Scintilla, situated in the Golgenna Reach, is the capital of the Calixis Sector. Along with the hellish Mining World Sepheris Secundus and the war-torn planet Iocanthos, it forms a triumvirate of worlds essential for the sector’s survival. The most powerful man in the Calixis Sector is officially Sector Governor Marius Hax, who rules the sector in the name of the Adeptus Terra from the Lucid Palace on Scintilla. However, the Calixian Conclave, led by Lord Inquisitor Caidin, is the ultimate authority in the sector, a clandestine and all-powerful presence behind the visible emblems and figureheads of power. No one has the power to gainsay the word of the Inquisition. Other important Imperial servants are Lord Inquisitor Zerbe of the Tyrantine Cabal, Cardinal Ignato of the Ecclesiarchy, Lord Marshal Goreman of the Adeptus Arbites, Senior Astropath Xiao, and Canoness Goneril of the Adepta Sororitas. The power of the Adepta, however, is rivalled by the Great Houses, the noble families and corporations, which maintain a presence across the sector. Even the minor noble houses, those whose influence is limited to a single world, hold a great deal of power over ordinary citizens.

History

The Calixis Sector has been part of the Imperium for over 2500 years, and as such is a relatively young Sector. The Sector has seen it’s fair share of struggle within this short period of time, and is currently invested in a major Imperial Crusade.
