The Crimson Consuls used three ruined Hives, collectively referred to as the Pale Maidens, as their training grounds. The three Hives were ruined a thousand years ago by a freak polar cyclone colloquially referred to as "The Big One" by the Hivers. Hive Niveous is the capital of the planet, and its spirepeak is formed by the Crimson Consuls' fortress-monastery, the Slaughterhorn. Archaphrael Hive is surrounded by the Dry-blind, a deadly snow-covered landscape which layers the lethal Carcharian surface of bottomless crevasses, fissures and fractures.[1]
