It has a gigantic array of communications equipment for contacting far away outposts and cities and goes through regular maintenance to make sure that everything works as intended. It is very well protected by layer after layer of reinforced basalt which consists of Valcoranium and some other supermaterials.
The tower has undegone many renovations since its construction, keeping it updated with new technology. At first, most of the alterations involved adding new colors to the tower and some small scale renovations. But after the great devastation, In which almost all the inhabitants on Cadmeia were killed, the tower alongside the city was heavily fortified with new technologies and equipment. In time, the gigantic tower became a fortress all on its own, hosting its own shield generators, defense turrets and extremely powerful communications equipment.

The Sanguine Tower was built as one of the first buildings by the early colonists of Cadmeia. Designed to be a control centre for the first colony and its surrounding settlements. It served its purpose well and became one of the most renowned and famous buildings across the world of Cadmeia. During The great devastation however, When the first demonic forces from the Great rift started invading the planet, most of the planets population was killed. Only by timely arrival of reinforcements by the The imperial terran federation was the demonic threat stopped. Afterwards, Cadmeia began its transition to become the first fortress world and The city of Valcoran became the first fortress city in Cadmeia. The tower was significantly renovated at this time to become a potent military installation on its own and ever since its construction almost 800 years ago, It has not fallen once to the demonic legions of Kerr
