When it was invaded by Hive Fleet Kraken, an extensive system of Novastorm space stations around Devlan held back the Tyranids long enough for rescue freighters carrying millions of citizens to escape. A company of the Lamenters was present to hold back the attack of Tyranid Warriors until the last ship was loaded. The Lamenters found themselves surrounded and were finally overrun.[1a]

The Red Terror, a Ravener with a carapace the colour of blood, caused terror amongst the defenders of Devlan for twenty days.[1b] What became of the creature is unknown, though one ship fleeing from Devlan made an automated landing at Adri's Hope ominously dark and silent. The ship was investigated by the planet's inhabitants and found to be a blood-drenched abattoir. A Tyranid creature was suspected to have gotten aboard, though nothing was found within the ship. Three weeks later, Adri's Hope itself had also become a blood-soaked ruin. It is unclear if this beast of Devlan is the Red Terror.[1]
