Cyrene was a verdant world where the Blood Ravens chapter held their Blood Trials. The world possessed a large proportion of mutants, particularly psykers but was also noted for an unswerving loyalty to the Emperor and capable soldiers who performed admirably in the Imperial Guard regiments tithed to the Imperium.[3]

History

When it was discovered that Cyrene's population had become completely corrupted, the planet was destroyed through Exterminatus by lance strikes, mass drivers and Cyclonic torpedoes ordered by the Inquisition and Captain Gabriel Angelos.[Needs Citation]

The destruction of Cyrene, his homeworld, weighed heavily on Angelos for the rest of his life, though he always expressed certainty that he had made the right decision.[1]

Relics

  • The Blighted Power Armour: a suit of power armour belonging to the Blood Ravens, with fragments of Cyrene's crust worked into its plating. The wearing of this armour is regarded by the Blood Ravens as a necessary penance.[2]
