The Manachea System is a System of Segmentum Obscurus.[1]

History

During the Great Crusade, the Manachea System was home to an advanced Human civilization whose population numbered in the hundreds of millions. However, it was controlled by the Mitu Conglomerate, a cabal of psychic xenos. Warp-capable and with arcane technology, they forged a pocket empire, forbidding any attempt of space flight and purging all psykers. The tyrannical rulers demanded a periodic culling of their subjects' population and tributes of flesh to power their technologies. After a protracted and bloody war during the Great Crusade, the Mitu Conglomerate was annihilated by three Space Marine Legions and hundreds of Solar Auxilia cohorts.[1]

After its conquest, the human population of Manachea, perhaps used to submission, welcomed their new Imperial rulers with open arms. The worlds of the system were thereafter organized into a semi-autonomous commonwealth that came to dominate the region of space. However, during the Horus Heresy, the Manachean Commonwealth was ravaged in the Battle of the Coronid Deeps.[1]
