Davinuus is an Eldar Maiden World that has been colonized by the Imperium.[1a]


In late M41, the Craftworld Iyanden[1a] and a group of Harlequins[1b] launched an invasion of Davinuus, in order to recover the ancient artifacts that were left there by the Eldar's ancestors. In doing so, they clashed with the Imperium's forces[1a], until both sides were attacked by a Genestealer Cult on the Maiden World, that suddenly revealed itself. Faced with this greater threat, the forces of Iyanden and the Imperium agreed to work together to defeat the Genestealer Cult[1c], which by then had overthrown Davinuus' Planetary Governor. To make matters worse, hidden Tyranid broods on the Maiden World emerged to aid the Genestealer Cult[1d] and were also drawing a Hive Fleet to Davinuus. However, despite the large numbers arrayed against them, the forces of Iyanden and the Imperium were successful in defeating both the Genestealer Cult and Tyranids; which prevented the approaching Hive Fleet from finding the Maiden World. In the war's aftermath the alliance between Iyanden and the Imperium ended and the remnants of the Eldar's forces retreated to their Craftworld, with the artifacts they had uncovered. As for Davinuus itself, the Maiden World remained in the Imperium's hands[1e], but had been left devastated by the war and its ecosystem had been drastically changed by the Tyranids' infestation.[1f]
