The Kinebrach were an obscure xenos species.
Xenoarchaeological research indicates that, of the multiple xenos species that occupied the Fortress Worlds in the Segmentum Pacificus, prior to the Imperium, the Kinebrach occupied them for the longest period (ca. M15-M31).
At the time of the Great Crusade (M31), the Kinebrach were a subject species of the Interex civilization.[2a] One of the pieces of technology unique to their species were the anathames, primitive close combat weapons which the Interex claimed were semi-sentient, and capable of recognizing a particular target.[2b]
