Chinchare System

Chinchare is a Mining World that was once not far from the Eye of Terror, though now it lies almost at the edge of the Segmentum and is close to the Halo Stars. The explanation of this phenomenon is that Chinchare orbits a rogue star; plagued by gravitic storms, the whole Chinchare System wanders through the fringes of the Halo Stars at the edge of Imperial space.[1] The creation of the Great Rift wreaked havoc on Chinchare and the Imperium's navigational maps now advise it is too dangerous to go near the world.[2]

Around M30, the system had been a neighbour of 3458 Dornal and possessed nine planets and an asteroid belt. In the millennia between M30 and M40, it reached the Pymbyle systems, major and minor, and had suffered two serious cosmological collisions, sporting six planets and radiating sheets of asteroid belts. Cinchare itself (Cinchares rogue system's planet four, denoted X181B) is an irregular, blue nugget of rock spinning fast along an almost figure-eight far orbit around its star. It is extremely rich in ultra-rare metals including ancylitum and phorydnum and it had been a miner's plunder-haven for as long as it had been identified.[1]

Inquisitor Gregor Eisenhorn visited the system while being declared traitor by the Imperium.[1]
