Since its discovery, the Boros System has been heavily fortified and staunchly defended by the Imperium thanks to the strategic value of the stable wormholes that directly link it into the warp. For ten thousand years, the forces of Chaos have attempted to take control of the system, but every invasion had been repulsed until a massive force of Word Bearers assaulted and nearly conquered the system at some point in late M41.

Considering its strategic value, Boros Prime is one of the most heavily defended planets in the Imperium, second only to Cadia. Its proximity to the Eye of Terror places it under the jursidiction of the Astartes Praeses , who can committ multiple Space Marine chapters to its defense during a time of need. The White Consuls, in particular, maintain a strong presence in the system, dedicating a Proconsul and a Coadjutor to rule over its some 400 billion citizens in the Emperor's name. It also boasts a formidable orbital bastion known as Kronos, a star fort of titanic proportions from the Dark Age of Technology. This monolith is the seat of the White Consuls' power, and the base from which they conduct all operations in the Boros system. Nestled amongst Kronos's cathedral spires, sensor arrays, and defense cannons lies the powerful Boros Defense Fleet, the equivalent of a Battlefleet in other sectors. Finally, and most importantly, are the wormholes that connect Boros Prime to dozens of other locations in the Imperium, allowing it to call on the entire might of the Imperial Navy should the need arise.[1a]
