Perdition's Flame In order to lure Hive Fleet Leviathan into attacking the Ork Empire of Octarius, Inquisitor Kryptman planted a brood of Genestealers on board and then destroyed the moon of Gheist in order to divert the hulk's trajectory directly towards the Octarius system. The Genestealer's psychic signal soon drew a tendril of Leviathan towards them. Codex: Tyranids (5th Edition), 28-31

It was crippled at Piscina IV and finally destroyed at Medusa V. Codex: Orks (2nd Edition),
