Dharrovar is a Fallen Knight World, that is home to the Traitorous Knight House Mandrakor.[1]

Overview

Dharrovar is barren, cold, and mountainous. Much of its land mass is covered in lines of jagged ridges made of razor-shop rocks. Deep ravines run between these natural walls, with fast-flowing icy streams at their bottom that commonly feature treacherous rapids and currents. Close to the edge of the Great Rift, Dharrovar is heavily touched by the powers of the Warp and local wildlife is heavily mutated. The hardy people of the world are fanatically loyal to their Knightly masters, even as they fell into treachery.

Its Knights are among the forces that are resisting the Imperium's efforts to claim the Nachmund Gauntlet, which is the only stable and safe route to the worlds of the Imperium Nihilus.[2]

History

Dharrovar was ruled over by an ancient dynasty of Knights under King Kaligius. Since the formation of the Great Rift the king grew paranoid and treated many seeking refuge or parlay with suspicion. He became so fiercely independent that he was been declared Excommunicate Traitoris by the Adeptus Terra.[2]

Not all of the House's Knights followed Kaligius into treachery, however, and a civil war broke out within the House.[1] Some loyalist Knights also escaped Dharrovar and acted as Freeblades, battling with the Imperium on Vigilus.[3]

During the Nachmund Rift War, Imperial forces launched a major offensive aimed at recapturing Dharrovar. However with the arrival of Haarken Worldclaimer's armies the Imperials were forced to abandon the siege.[4d] At one point, Raptors of Indomitus Crusade Fleet Secundus infiltrated the planet, waging a sabotage campaign against House Mandrakor.[5]

Omega-Threx

Omega-Threx is a nearby Forge Moon allied with Dharrovar and run by the Dark Mechanicum. It supplies the Knights of Dharrovar with all of their munitions, expertise, and maintenance as well as soldiers and engines.[4c] It is currently ruled over by Fabricator-General Astamorkhus Grine-Theta.[4e]
