Galatia is one of the three Forge Worlds of the Triplex within the Eastern Fringe alongside Triplex Phall and Thule.[1a]

The oldest of the three planets, it was established in the ancient days when Mechanicum Explorator fleets were sent out to colonize new worlds. Its Titan Legion became the Legio Victorum I, but it was peacefully assimilated into the Imperium. With the promise of rich rewards from the Warmaster himself, Galatia began to slowly stockpile weapons of war built to new and fearsome specifications, shipping the more orthodox examples of their craft to the Imperium in order to keep up the pretence of loyalty that had been thrown across the system like a shroud.[1c]

Galatia was the site of heavy fighting during the Thramas Crusade, where they attempted to resist the Night Lords.[1a] Most of the Magi chose to ultimately surrender and they became corrupted members of the Dark Mechanicum. Thus they unleashed mechanical horrors upon the Dark Angels during the later stages of the Crusade, forcing Lion El'Jonson to enact the Ikaros Contingency and purge the entire planet, leaving only its dockyards intact.[1b]
