72-9 is a sparsely populated world of the Imperium. It was once a Knight World known as Valnum.[1]


During the Great Crusade the ruling Knight House, House Cratax, rejected assimilation into the Imperium and executed its emissaries. In response sixty warriors of the Thousand Sons under Captain Ohrmuzd landed on the world to force compliance, destroying the first Knight sent out to eliminate them.[1]

The Thousand Sons used their psychic abilities to resist fire from Cratax's remaining number of Knights until the lead Knight was a shadow above them, at which point they struck back. The resultant battle lasted no more than 500 seconds and only three Thousand Sons died as House Cratax was destroyed.[1]
