With the Juventius Free Regiment absorbed in responding to the fall of Caluphel Prime, sedition at home has grown to insurrection and open rebellion. Xeno cults have spread unchecked among key planets in Gamma Euphorion and Vela Odysseus, while the ideals of Independent Juventius are subverted by vain, ambitious aristocrats.
In reaction, Narcus Grine’s cadre of hard-line Imperial loyalists have seized control of the Juventius system and deployed reaction forces to Spearpoint and Borysthenis.
Grine has renamed his government the Juventius Provisional Imperial Authority, and claims sovereignty on behalf of the Emperor over the entire sub-sector. He chafes to enforce the Emperor’s will upon the iniquitous rebels, but knows he has only enough forces to the contain their growth for now.
