Class: Agri World
Geography: Temperate climate around the poles, boiling everywhere else. 60% sea, with most of the land being island chains. Extremely fertile soil, despite the low land-mass ratio; variants of human staples and local flora are also grown on the seabed.
Many of the islands have large mining operations; the biggest of the islands that has been seen so far has a giant crater, made by unknown means.
Flora/Fauna: Fauna unknown. A wide variety of plant life. Human colony, Kroot and Tau have also been seen.
Maloria appears to have held to a version of the Imperial Creed over the years, and according to one of its ex-nobility has rejoined the Imperium many times over the last 5 millenia only for the Ultima Segmentum to forget/abandon the planet. In very recent times, the planet’s governers have looked… elsewhere for protectors.
It eventually seceded to the Tau, specifically Viel’Nau sept, despite outcry from some loyalists. Due its mineral wealth, old residents are being relocated as the planet . Terrorism on the rise by disgruntled humans. A ‘Lady’ Flacilla appeared to be involved with the protest movement, as well as ‘Death Cult’ assassins who attempted to kill one of the Ethereals.
