The Cuir Subsector is located to the galactic north east of the main Carthax sector, and was discovered and conquered during the Nakt crusade in the 8th century of M32.
Typical pronunciation of the subsector name is with a soft C, similar to "Sear" - the origin of these unusual linguistics is unknown.

- 828.M32: Nakt Crusade begins.
- 832.M32: Nakt Crusade discovers the Penitence system on the fringes of what would later be considered the Cuir Subsector.
- 837.M32: Further major warp routes are discovered, and the crusade splits off in several directions.
- 850-859.M32: Many of the conquered worlds are colonised by regiments from the crusade, leaving many populations with distinctive population traits that endure to this day.
- 865.M32: The discovery of the Cerestne system marks what is generally considered the close of the Nakt crusade.
- 679-685.M33: The Scaro passage linking the Cuir sub-sector with the economically prosperous Alykia sector is discovered.
- 825.M34: Sub-sector Governor Assiran attempts to establish a Cuir sub-sector specific currency. Following mass confusion and revolt amongst the population, Assiran is deposed by members of his cabinet.
- 012.M35: Waaagh Oddgob threatens Cuir sub-sector, first hitting the Penitence system. Defeated by Battlefleet Carthax and the Black Templar strike cruiser Gauntlet of Duty.
- Early M36: The Age of Apostasy:
- Scholars tend to associate the peak in the deaths of high ranking officials in the sub-sector with assassination orders issued either by Goge Vandire himself or one of his supporters.
- 455.M36: Chief Librarian Tokten of the Sons of Orrus Chapter predicts a dark force will arise in the Cuir sub-sector and ravage the Carthax sector.
- 993.M36: Excavations on Ilithyia uncover ancient prophecies pertaining to dark secrets from the Antonine Cluster entering the Cuir sub-sector and extinguishing all life in the Carthax sector.
- 914-937.M41: Warlord Imylosst's traitor forces launch a massive assault on the neighbouring Alykia sector.
- 938.M41: Cerestne system in the sector north-west declared to be in a state of war with the fallen Alykia Sector.
- 987.M41: Benoit de la Bassier named as the 532nd (and current incumbent) Master of Logistics.
- 011.M42: Following the death of Corporal Aderyn Aeslin (later to be posthumously canonised as an Imperial Saint) in the Ilithyian War, widespread violent civil unrest spreads throughout the northern reaches of the sector, with the damage estimated at 450 million souls and 700 billion Throne Gelt.
- 012.M42: The Inquisition rapidly suppresses the existence of a system codenamed "Scylla", following its sudden disappearance from real-space. Investigation by the Ordo Malleus shows that a tainted alien warp-gate has dragged the world and a now interconnected twin on the Eastern Fringe (codenamed "Kharybdis") into a sub-plane of reality. Both worlds, while still accessible by their normal warp routes, are quarantined.
Regions of Cuir
The Cuir sub-sector contains [missing data] official administrative regions, as well as several astrographical ones.
Although many sources do not consider the Antonine cluster to be an official part of the Cuir sub-sector, the region has long since ceased to be productive or prosperous enough to justify being separately administrated. At present, the region is therefore administrated through the Cuir sub-sector hierarchy.
It is to be found to the galactic west of the central Cuir sub-sector.
- Perdido: Hive World. Populace lives aboard four orbital rings. Adeptus Mechanicus shipyard.
- Hide: Feral World. Failed colony.

- Ptolemy: Hive world. Plasteel, small arms and textile production.
- Imshee: Hive World. Adeptus Mechanicus demesnes.
A supernova remnant towards the north-west of the Cuir Subsector, and a rich source of rare elements. However, proximity to the nebula causes terminal cascade feedback in Gellar fields, and it is therefore classified as one of the most dangerous warp anomalies in the Carthax sector.
