History

Sheol was the site of a major battle between the Dark Angels and Night Lords in the Horus Heresy. In orbit and the surface, the Night Lords suffered casualties of between a fifth and a quarter of the Legion's total strength,[1b] including three Captains of the Kyroptera and nearly the primarch Konrad Curze at the hands of Lion El'Jonson. Victory for the Dark Angels effectively ended the Thramas Crusade.[1a]
