Scintilla is everything one might expect a Hive world to be. The planet is wrought with corruption, filled with noblemen who are convinced that they are above Imperial Law. Spread over the few hives is a population upwards of 25 billion – most living in squalor, with only a few living in the highest towers of the hives. Scintilla is not only the capital of Calixis, it also hosts the Calixian Conclave of the Inquisition at Tricorn Palace.
