Chordelis was mostly given to manufacture, and had orbital dockyards large enough to support battleships and Strike Cruisers. Following the approach of Hive Fleet Leviathan, many people attempted to evacuate Chordelis, with many accidents occurring in the panic.[1b]

Sadly, Chordelis was destroyed and the majority of its population were killed, but not by the Tyranids. Inquisitor Lord Kryptman had ordered Exterminatus on Chordelis using virus bombs and the Mortifactors' Strike Cruiser Mortis Probati to prevent Leviathan from absorbing Chordelis' biomass. The large amount of civilian deaths and the fact that Kryptman had lied by stating his intention to make a stand at Chordelis infuriated the Ultramarines, especially Uriel Ventris.[1c]
