Exhubris II is a Swamp World that holds Xeno pyramids on its surface. It was these pyramids that drew a Magos' Explorator Fleet from the Forge World Stygies VIII to study them; however, when he attempted to enter the Xenos structures his forces were attacked by the Eldar of Craftworld Ulthwé.[1]

The Eldar emerged from a number of Webway Portals and swiftly overwhelmed the Magos' forces; causing him to send out a plea for aid. The Tech-Priest Dominus Kryptaestrex heard the Magos' plea and his own forces soon descended upon Exhubris II and began driving the Eldar away from what remained of the Stygies VIII Magos' forces. However, it was not loyalty to his fellow Adeptus Mechanicus brethren, that drove Kryptaestrex to fight against the Eldar; instead it was the knowledge that the Xenos had used Webway Portals in their attack. The Dominus had been obsessed for years, with discovering how the Webway Portals functioned and this would be his latest attempt in capturing a fully functioning one. The Dominus' fierce attack, caused the Ulthwé Eldar to retreat back to their Webway Portals, but Kryptaestrex's forces managed to capture one before the Eldar were able to close it behind them. Now with the Eldar's threat dealt with, the Dominus is intently studying his captured Webway Portal; while the Stygies VIII Magos is free to open Exhubris II's Xeno pyramids.[1]
