++SEGMENTUM ULTIMA: SALAZAR B29++
Salazar B29 is a red giant surrounded by four planets. The star system was chosen by the Adeptus Arbites for the establishment of a Triplemax Imperial Correctional Facility due to its remote location. Upon arrival the Arbites discovered the Monastery of the Congregatio Metalica Tranquillus on Salazar Prime and the agri-world on Salazar Secundus. The Fabricator Abbot agreed to the establishment of the facility in exchange for a loyal Imperial Knight House to be settled on Salazar Secundus.

+People and Society+
Salazar Prime: Assumed standard Cult Mechanicus hierarchy headed by Fabricator Abbot Alserian Drakitarius. Being the only documented settlement on the planet’s surface, the monastery functions as the capital. Of note is the unusual resilience of the Skitarii forces, attributed to operating in the extreme climate far from interstellar supply lines. The prison-moon is under directorship of Lord Warden Konrad Knast. Conflicts of interest between the Lord Warden and the Abbot have been documented.
Salazar Secundus: Feudal Democracy. Full citizenry and voting rights are only awarded to nobles. When the planet was discovered it followed an abridged Imperial Belief and was so re-aligned with little resistance to the Imperial Truth. Next to a rudimentary PDF is the Imperial Knight House Stram the only military force. The house is led by the Lady Seneshal Heleanor the Vigilant. While the Knight House is subservient to the Emperors Will it has sworn loyalty to the monastery in exchange for maintaining the holy machines.
