Kiss of the Emperor
Within Eden Hive the Planetary Administration is run by Consul Sandtrail, but his administration is undercut by the power of House Kaisheck. In order to get the powerful house to commit to running the agriculture of the world the Adeptus Administratum granted House Kaisheck extraordinary powers within the hive, controlling all law enforcement except the Adeptus Arbites and the Planetary Inquisition and even control the of the Hive’s Planetary Defense Forces. This leaves the Consul with very little leverage over House Kaisheck, but this does not prevent the Consul from using what leverage he does have in the form of the bureaucracy. Consul Sandtrail and his staff make sure that every T is crossed and every I is dotted on every form and every formality is respected on inspections and reviews. Little love is shared between the Planetary Administration in the Hive and the ruling House, but neither will allow this enmity to slow the mining of the Emperor’s Kiss.
