Clad in midnight blue, the Praeses Mercatura ultimately answer to the Speaker for the Chartist Captains and protect the Speaker's personal domain on Terra, known as the Nexus Axiomatic. The Mercatura's formation dates back to the aftermath of the Siege of Terra, where the Nexus was nearly destroyed before Horus' forces were defeated.
