Some time after the Fall of Sotha, the Brakur System was attacked by the Tyranids of Hive Fleet Kraken. The initial invasion was made by a Hive Ship, designated Daedalus by the Imperium, that specialised in breeding flying bioforms.
A detachment of the Scythes of the Emperor Chapter arrived in-system aboard the Strike Cruiser Atreides roughly eight days after the initial incursion. Unfortunately, the Marines had not come to Brakur IV prepared for an encounter on this scale, having only expected to rendezvous with Apothecary Aratus, who had been screening the population for potential recruits for the depleted Chapter.
Despite this, the Marines did not retreat. After sending Squad Quintos and the Thunderhawks Chrepan Steed and Harpagus to assist in the evacuation of Brakur Dominus, Atreides proceeded on to Brakur IV. Assault Squad Cassander deployed in an aerial drop via a Storm Eagle into Brakur IV's atmosphere. Disaster struck, however, when the Storm Eagle was attacked and destroyed by a pair of Harridans and most of the squad was killed. The surviving two marines, Esau and Galerius, were able to land in the city of Tamuero, the location of the Chapter's outpost. Ultimately they were successful in evacuating Aratus, a number of serf medicae and the outpost's stock of gene-seed.
The battle for the Brakur System itself, however, continued to rage. The outcome of the conflict is unknown.
- Tamuero - a city that held an outpost used by the Scythes of the Emperor to carry out genetic screens of the population, in the hopes of recruiting new Aspirants for the Chapter.
