Iybraesil is an Eldar Craftworld located in the Western Quadrant of Segmentum Obscurus.[1]

They are primarily a matriarchal society, fostering many Howling Banshees and female Autarchs. The gifted Farseers of the Craftworld labor long in their hunt for the hidden secrets of the Crone Worlds, hoping to both secure Spirit Stones and doomsday weapons that would tip the balance in their race's war of survival.[2]

It is said that during their earliest days, seven times seven of Iybraesil's warrior women became the Crone's own handmaidens so that their sisters might enjoy long and fruitful lives.[5] As followers of Morai-Heg, the blind crone goddess of the underworld, they constantly aspire to recover the long lost secrets of the Crone Worlds, the former Eldar homeworlds now residing within the Eye of Terror.[3][4] Fitting their patron god, Iybraesil has a disproportionately high female population.[5]

Iybraesil's traditional colours are blue and white.[3][4] Iybraesil's symbol, the Hand of Heg, references the Eldar Myth wherein the Crone Morai-Heg persuaded Khaine to sever her hand so that she could drink from the wisdom of her own blood.[2]
