Carolus, the name of a colony far out at the frontiers of human explored space, where only Rouge Traders dare tread in trade routes.
Carolus was originally an expedition supported by a very small fleet which generally got diminished into an incredible small force along the way by battles and asteroid belts. The expedition would not be considered a failure unless they had lost contact with the Emperors Empire, which they did and soon they were forced to put all they had into colonizing a small planet at the frontiers. The force that managed to colonize the planet was back then lead by a man named Carolus, a name since then passed on his lineage on the planet.
Carolus was a high spiritually believing man whom had all faith in the Emperor and his faith has lived on and been the backbone of this planet.
When many would have faltered or fallen off from belief the Carolus Colony has maintained the faith even though they are so far away from what would be called the civilized part of the galaxy where mankind reign. The life on the Carolus Colony can be tough, harsh and seem right out hellish at times, but only because its leader have faith in his fellow men and women, seeing as everyone can pull their share of duty and full fill a place in the colony's society.
With a couple of small ships still functioning the Carolus Colony takes any occasion they can to trade with rouge traders in order to maintain a healthier society and in order to survive. It is not like the Carolus Colony truly enjoy the need they feel for the rouge traders out there and sure, the colony has become good at farming and mining for materials, but solely living on purely that gives a sense of meaninglessness, something much preferred avoided by trade rather then to lower the moral and faith.
A small group of Space Marines had accompany this expedition and though most was run by the Imperial Guard its turn has put the value of the Space Marines still alive and protecting the current Carolus of the Colony.
