Located in the Astoth sub-sector, Theron acts as a cog in the planets comprising the system; working with the nearby Forge world by supplying it with its raw resource needs. Theron is rich in minerals, metals, and natural gases that grants it great value.
Entire continents are covered with vast mining networks, whilst the one patch of ocean that the planet did have has been evaporated to make the drilling of the seabed easier.
Due to its proximity and importance to Layria, the Mechanicus has taken on the running and defense of the planet. The miners are servitors that require little in the way of sustenance, whilst the garrisons are manned by skitarii and other Mechanicus forces.
