Under Archon Qu, the Lords of the Iron Thorn declared the independence of Pandaimon from Commorragh and fought a great war with the Kabal of the Black Heart which only ended with Qu's death and defeat at the hands of Asdrubael Vect.[2]

Despite the domination by Asdrubael Vect that has since taken place across the Dark City, the Thornlords are still very powerful. Though they still consider themselves 'of true blood', the Lords of Iron Thorn wisely refrain from flaunting their heritage in front of the Kabal of the Black Heart, for Vect keeps a very close eye on his ancient rivals.[1]

The Lords of Iron Thorn are highly active in the raids upon realspace, not least because every successful attack proves afresh the power of their airborne armada. They believe in the application of overwhelming firepower, and delight in proving the superiority of their finely crafted gunboats over the lumbering war engines of the lesser races.[3]
