Maestea has always been smaller in significance and less advanced than its nearest neighbor of Eglurn. With only 842 000 residents they have always looked to its larger neighbor for leadership, support and protection. For its part Eglurn has allowed them to develop at their own pace with many from Eglurn moving to Maestea for a simpler life. With no seas and a fairly barren flat land residents live in small communities other then the capital Broven with a population of only 125 000. Broven is a place for trade and services for the planet. Humans from Maestea arrived in the system before those on Eglurn and a clearly from a different stock, often being hardier and far more hard working than their advanced 'civilized' cousins. Strangely not often as interbred, this is a difference still visible today.

Maestea is a first port of call on the way to Eglurn, ships often refitting and refueling coming into and out from the capital world. By this means most of the population find work and The planet makes its profit. The worlds only other claim to fame is the 7th Legiones Astartes maintain a rotating garrison upon the world of Maestea, currently it is the 501st Battalions duty to maintain at least one battle company and a patrol fleet on Maestea at all times, aswell as roving patrol elements of the 32nd Vanguard assault Household. The imperial fists are known for their elaborate and Brilliant defensive strategies, random patrols from different Legion units and chapters is but one of their many tactics.



As a low tech less advanced world Maestean officials were advised by Eglurn but free to form their own government and to develop a simpler style of living. Eglurn with its trading with outside systems had kept Maestea safe with its wealth and power (at least they appeared to) and made sure they were unaware of most dealings within the sector and the existence of surviving human worlds outside the Eglurn sector.


Maestea followed the lead and advice of Eglurn in accepting compliance. Themselves being in no such position to war with a Legiones Astartes. Eglurn even petitioned for them to be more or less allowed to develop on their own as they had always allowed them to do. Although this was more likely to cultivate a more of a docile client state for the upper classes of Eglurn, and also so that their shipping lanes were not scrutinized by imperial authorities.

Post Compliance

Other than some minor changes for compliance the only difference to the planet is the patrols of from the Imperial Fists located on nearby Iaethea. Eglurn have managed to limit most effects of compliance with those on Maestea hardly aware of the effects of submission to the Imperium.

This has recently changed though with the Horus Heresy in full swing and traitor fleets located just outside the Eglurn system, and suspected traitors from within. The 7th Legion has began fortifying most worlds in the system and Maestea is no exception, especially considering how vital the worlds shipping lanes and resupply ports are not only for military affairs but also to the regions stability. The 501st Battalions 7th company and elements of the 32nd vanguard assault household are currently stationed on the world aswell as a founding of local militia and Eglurnian Imperial army units being posted to the world (though these Eglurnian units are watched with scrutiny by the 7th legion in these dark days of uncertainty). These shipping lanes must not fall into the hands of the traitors, for if they do then the enemy will be on the very doorstep of Eglurn itself.
