Overview

The Emperor's Spears's homeworld is Nemeton, an aquatic planet with small landmasses. The chapter relies on a large fleet and focus on air superiority.[2] The armour of the Emperor's Spears is often decorated, and many of the older legionaries decorate their equipment with the symbol of the Star Scorpions in honor of the destroyed chapter. Their Librarians and Apothecaries wear black.[2]

For many centuries, the Emperor's Spears have been focused on guarding the region of space known as Elara's Veil alongside the Celestial Lions and previously the Star Scorpions. With the former hounded by the Inquisition and the latter having been destroyed, this leaves the Spears as the Veil's sole sentinel.[3]
