Chrysis is a Knight World of the Imperium and home to House Krast.[1]


The Knight world of Chrysis was the first to be rediscovered at the outset of the Great Crusade (in 850.M30[2]) by Rogue Trader Militant Bastian Jeffers. Its proximity to Mars meant that the knightly houses of Chrysis were able to swiftly resupply their Knights with new weapons and equipment.[1]

However during the Horus Heresy, the Knight world’s proximity to Mars was to ultimately prove its undoing when the full might of Horus’ traitor forces descended upon Chrysis as he carved a bloody path across the galaxy towards Terra. The Knights of House Krast returned to their planet only to find it devastated and the lesser houses all but erased from existence.[1]
