History

The surface of Sicarus before the arrival of the Word Bearers

Shortly before the Infidus Imperator was destroyed in the aftermath of the Battle of Calth, Kor Phaeron cut a hole in the materium to escape. Stepping through, he arrived upon Sicarus, declaring it, A place of sanctuary. In a place of freedom. In a place where our enemies can never touch us.[3]

Overview

Beneath a roiling sky of fire and blood, Sicarus is a world completely covered by vast sprawling cathedrals, temples and monuments dedicated to the worship of the Ruinous Powers. Spider-legged cranes and slaves numbering in the millions constantly toil in a never-ending task to raise more structures of devotion and worship, level upon level atop the existing older crumbling edifices and cathedrals, producing obelisks and spires many kilometres high. As a result the majority of buildings are subterranean; a labyrinthine warren of interconnected structures devoted to the worship of chaos.[Needs Citation]

The seat of the Dark Council is the Basilica of the Word - an immense cathedral fortress crowned with hundreds of five kilometre high barbed spires, each studded with jagged spikes, upon which are impaled countless living sacrifices.[2]

The bodies of fallen Dark Apostles are buried in Sicarus's holy soil. [1]
