Necromorph Outbreak[]

Marker Shroud 4 01

The Red Marker Shroud 4 facility on Uxor's surface.

In 2514, the Circle, led by Jacob Arthur Danik, launched an attack on Uxor to "liberate" the Red Marker underneath Shroud 4. They destroyed the facilities and surrounding structures, which exposed the Marker. The Marker subsequently activated and unleashed a surge of electromagnetic energy powerful enough to shut down the flight control system of a ship in orbit, which crashed near the residential district. A Necromorph outbreak ensued following the activation of the Marker and began attacking the survivors.
