Masali is an arid Desert World converted to an Agri World, and part of the stellar realm of Ultramar in the Ultima Segmentum.[1]

Like its sister planets Quintarn and Tarentus (known collectively as the "Three Planets" of Ultramar), it is covered in vast domed horticultural cities and water traps to capture the water needed to grow vast quantities of food.[Needs Citation] The food produced by these planets is exported around the galaxy, and also used to support the Ultramarines in their campaigns.[Needs Citation]

The Three Planets were each invaded by Ork scavengers just after the Battle of Macragge and Marneus Calgar led the Ultramarines to reconquer them.[Needs Citation]

It once came under attack by a large force of Eldar, who began systematically killing every Human they came across. It wasn't until the Ultramarines' Force Commander Sicarius arrived with a taskforce that the massacre was ended. Sicarius's force surrounded the rampaging Eldar and destroyed them all, showing them the same mercy they had shown Masali's population.[2]

Masali, like many of the worlds in Ultramar, suffers from recurrent resurgences of Tyranids in the wake of Hive Fleet Behemoth's destruction in the First Tyrannic War.[3]

Previous Materials

In Fanatic material, published in The Citadel Journal 41, pg. 29, it was a Force Commander Sewell who managed to destroy the Eldar forces. He was changed to Sicarius in later, official publications.[2][4]
