Tarnis was once the home world of the Imperial Knights of House Drakkus, before they were destroyed in an attack by an invading Khorne Warband, lead by the Fallen Zufiel[1b]. The Warband was just the first of the forces to invade Tarnis, as the Waaagh! of Warboss Nekkruncha[1c] made planetfall as well. With two invading forces, all hope looked lost for Tarnis, until a Dark Angels strike force led by Master Tigraine soon arrived to save it[1b]. However, the Dark Angels did not realize that the Khorne Warband, had a dark purpose invading Tarnis, as it is the location where they planned to complete a Chaos ritual; that allowing them to free the mighty Bloodthirster Felfurion from the Warp.[1a] The last surviving Knight of House Drakkus, Vortigan, had managed to survive the attack on Fort Drakkus and assisted the Dark Angels with repelling the Ork and Chaos forces. They were further aided by the Iron Warden of Tarnis: Altorus. The combined forces successfully repelled the Waaagh by killing Nekkruncha, and defeating the Warband even after they had managed to summon Felfurion. While Altorus fell during the battle to retake Fort Drakkus, Vortigan took up his mantle as the new Iron Warden of Tarnis.[1d]
