Dutonis is a Knight World of the Imperium, located in the Segmentum Obscurus.[1a]


The Knight world of Dutonis is an acrid, volcanic world. Ever tinged with the bitter taste of sulfur on the wind, it is a world of great material value to the Imperium, for it is ripe with mineral ore and rich veins of adamantium fork throughout the planet’s mountainous crust. Two Knight HousesNavaros and Borgius — have long protected Dutonis from those who would seek to claim this priceless metal for themselves. In this task, they have fought against both alien and traitor alike, for it would be unthinkable should such quantities of this invaluable ore fall into the wrong hands.[1a]

Despite this both Households are fierce rivals with each other and have been embroiled in a bitter feud that dates back several millennia. It began when the matriarch of House Borgius was accused of seducing the Count of Navaros' firstborn son, then poisoning him after he spurned her advances. Since then relations between the Houses have soured to the point of regular open warfare and have on occasion forced their Sacristans to request forces from the nearby Forge World of Lucius to intervene, in order to prevent the fighting from halting production at Dutonis' adamantium mining facilities. One outbreak of violence in 156.M41 became so fierce that the Tech Priests of Lucius authorized the deployment of a demi-legion of Titans from the Legio Astorum to quell the infighting.[1c]
