Cagalian IX is an Imperium Mining World that was discovered to be infected with a Genestealer Cult known as the Cult of the Rusted Claw.[1]

History

When the Deathwatch Watch Master Feron learned of this, he led several of Fort Excalibris' Kill-Teams to purge the Cult from Cagalian IX. However, when they attacked the Cult of the Rusted Claw, they were beaten back and were shocked to discover that the Cult was larger and more powerful then they had suspected. Their failed attack caused Feron's Kill-Teams to suffer many casualties and he decided, that instead of fighting to the death against the Cult's unfathomable numbers, they would retreat and inform the Imperium of what had happened on Cagalian IX. Though as the Deathwatch retreated to their evacuation point, they were attacked by a large force of the Cult of the Rusted Claw, which was led by their Patriarch.[1]

In the massacre that ensued, many of Fort Excalibris' Kill-Teams were wiped out, including Feron himself. Luckily however, the remnants of Codicier Velim's ravaged Kill-Team was able to escape off world and Feron had managed to kill the Cult's Patriarch, before he was torn apart by Genestealers.[1]
