Yarant III[2] is an Imperial world, located in the Segmentum Solar.[1]


During the 2nd siege of the world in the Great Crusade, the early IXth Legion's 14th Company was deployed under Rogal Dorn. During the campaign they consumed prisoners of war in front of the enemy walls, inspiring terror and fear. They were formally censured after supposedly consuming wounded members of the allied Malagant Rifles as they retreated.[3]

During the Horus Heresy, Yarant III became the site of a battle between the Space Wolves and a coalition of traitor forces led by Abaddon. The Space Wolves were routed and Leman Russ badly injured, though in the end they were saved by the Raven Guard led by Corax.[2]
