Rising to power at the dawn of M41, House Achtenbrau is a wealthy and influential merchant house, operating out of the Calixis Sector.

Their base of operations is on Scintilla, but they have several stations throughout the Calixis Sector, and even a few in the Koronus Expanse.
A trade agreement with House Achtenbrau is sought after by many. In addition to being very lucrative, it is also a trade agreement that brings with it a level of prestige. House Achtenbrau has connections with the highest levels of nobility in the Calixis Sector, as well as favor with the Adeptas Arbites, the Ecclesiarchy, the Adepta Mechanicus, and even the Storm Wardens Chapter of the Adeptas Astartes, who are native to the Calixis Sector.
