Kiss of the Emperor
Before the war this hive was the home of the large Planetary Defense Force. In addition to mining the hive was filled with training facilities, weapons control centers, fortifications and supply centers. It was also a prime target of the invasion of the World Eaters and their allies and was the first hive to fall. The Governor has targeted the hive for a priority rebuild, but it produces little Kiss of the Emperor so progress has been slow.
