Atar-Median is a Forge World of the Imperium and home to the Legio Atarus.[1]


Atar-Median was established during the Great Crusade due to the political maneuverings of the Forge World of Phaeton, who dispatched a third of its strength to the world for settlement. The action was in defiance of Mars and drew considerable ire down on Phaeton and considerable contempt was also directed towards its new off-spring. Nonetheless it became a flourishing Forge World in short order and was watched over by the newly-founded Legio Atarus. The Magi of the Forge World were eager to prove themselves to the Imperium and exhibited a relentless drive to succeed that drew bitterness by its neighbors within the Belt of Iron.[1]

Those hailing from Atar-Median were often met with hostility and so instead they moved to integrate themselves amongst the wider Imperium. The eagerness to succeed was exhibited by the Legio Atarus during the Great Crusade and during the Horus Heresy they became one of the first to denounce the Warmaster. The Legio Atarus lost a full demi-Legio at Isstvan V and its warriors craved vengeance in the aftermath.[3]
