History

When the Fists Exemplar were charged with watching over the Rubicante Flux, a Warp storm that was sporadic in its eruptions and plagued the Abra Sector located on the outskirts of the Segmentum Solar and uncomfortably close to Ancient Terra. To aid the Fists Exemplar with this duty, they were given the Star Fort Alcazar Astra, which had served the Imperial Fists well during the Horus Heresy. With the Fort towed by their ships, the Fleet-based Chapter patrolled the Rubicante Flux, for sometime until disaster struck. While the Alcazar Astra was being towed to a new location, a sudden massive warp eruption from the Rubicante Flux, blew the Star Fort of course and into the gravitational embrace of a nearby star. Due to the heroic efforts of Chapter Master Dantalion and his Captains, the Alcazar Astra was guided towards the star's nearest planet Eidolica, where it breached itself. Though the Fort was saved from destruction, Dantalion was one of the Fists Exemplar who lost his life in the crash. With the Star Fort forever grounded, the Fists Exemplar adopted Eidolica as their Home World and the Alcazar Astra became their Fortress Monastery. The Chapter adapted well to their new location and served the Imperium well for millenia until the coming of the Ork Warlord known as The Beast. During the War of the Beast, the planet was overrun by Orks.[1]

Geography

Though habitable, Eidolica is so close to its system's star that the planet's day cycle is inimical to all forms of life, including Space Marines; anything that is exposed to the world's harsh sunlight without shelter is incinerated.[1]
