Inwit is a mostly lifeless frigid world of little value, sporting little natural resources and vicious native wildlife. The people of Inwit are barbaric but not unsophisticated, raised to endure and survive the harsh climate. Most of Inwit's population is nomadic, moving between the subterranean ice Hives to trade in weapons, fuel, and technology. Conflict between these roaming clans is common and men learn to defend themselves at a young age. Despite these conditions, Inwit managed to establish a small interstellar empire during the Age of Strife. The rulers of Inwit kept to the old traditions and nomadic lifestyles while they simultaneously built small warfleets for expansion.[5]

Rogal Dorn spent at least a significant portion of his formative years on Inwit. He is known to have lived amongst the ice-tribe of Dorn during his adolescence and to have considered the sire of one of these tribes as his grandfather. The world is said to have supported ice-hives and to have an unconfirmed technology level; Dorn at one point referred to the Phalanx as something he had constructed, and claims to have been Emperor and warlord of the entire Inwit system.[2]

Several recruits of the Imperial Fists Legion came from the ice tribes of Inwit, including Captain Alexis Polux.[4]
