Based on its name, it is believed that the planet was discovered in the distant past, by the Space Wolves or Leman Russ himself. During the 13th Black Crusade, an Araken artefact called the Heklarunsten, was destroyed by the forces of Chaos on the planet. The energy released from its destruction, increased the size of the nearby Araken Warpstorm; somehow dissipating its energy in the process. The Heklarunsten's destruction drew the attention of Magos Omega Thule, who began a search for the remaining Araken artefacts in the region.
