Into that Vast Expanse
Port Wander is an Imperial Space Station on the border of the Koronus Passage. It is the last stop in the Calixis Sector when traveling to the Halo Stars. The station orbits around a bloated red star and is surrounded by shattered remnants of ancient asteroids, some of which were converted into other installations—such as shipyards, housing units, research stations, repair docks, storage facilities, depots, palatial manses and estates and crude habitats. It appears as a cityscape with high cathedral towers in its centre and a lot of docks and piers on its circular rim.
Being a border dwelling, Port Wander has a diverse population: traders, spies, merchant factors, pilgrims, missionaries, soldiers, sailors, Administratum functionaries and servants of the Adeptus Mechanicus. Due to the fact that through this station lots of riches flow and that the structure itself requires a lot of maintenance, its corridors and outer surfaces are filled with life (approximately 5 million people) – whose activity is overseen by Adeptus Arbites from their Precinct Complex. A Naval Commander, Larius Sans, is in charge of the station’s government.
