Deathwatch: Scything Talons
Ultramar is a prosperous region of space in the Ultima Segmentum’s Eastern Fringe. Governed and reigned over by the Ultramarines Chapter, this region of space has produced populous, productive, and industrially advanced worlds that have since contributed to the welfare and upkeep of the Ultramarines Chapter and some of their closest Successors.
While Ultramar does indeed have a strong industrial output, its planets remain ecologically balanced (thanks in large part to the forethought of the Ultramarines’ Primarch, Roboute Gulliman). The citizens of Ultramar planets are content and happy, and they breed a distinct warrior culture, with the ultimate prize being seen as recruitment into the Ultramarines at an early age.
Recently, this region was ravaged by the advance of Hive Fleet Behemoth, and it has lost worlds that were once jewels of the Imperium, such as Calth, and left others scarred and broken. Estimates place full recovery of the sector beyond a century.
The capital of the Ultramar Region is the planet of Macragge, where rules the Ultramarines’ Chapter Master, Marneus Calgar.
