During the system's pacification in M32, the system's fourth world was contested bitterly between its native population and the Guard elements under General Francois Murdoch. When the enemy was finally routed, the planet was far too dangerous to colonise; the weapons unleashed during the war having destabilised the planet's mantle. Ravaged by earthquakes of tremendous magnitude, the planet is a death world, though a few thousand hunter-gatherers exist in small tribes dotted across the planet's surface. Semi-regular purges of mutation, psychic taint, and heretical practices are undertaken by Inquisitorial edict. The world has provided Imperial Guard regiments on a half-dozen occasions, the most recent in 013.M42 for the war on Illythia.
