Ligeta was considered a hub of culture and the arts in the Imperium, as opposed to any military victory much to the chagrin of Colonel Corvus Parthamen, the head of Ligeta's PDF and recruiting. Corvus's twin Gurges Parthamen, by contrast was a celebrated musician who had left on journey for inspiration, but had been captured by Typhus and corrupted him into the service of Nurgle, and Gurges had composed a "plague-song" which infected the entire population, causing them waste away as they were unable to act beyond chanting a hymn to Nurgle.[Needs Citation]

Despite having killed his brother, Corvus was unable to stop the Plague Song, and was forced to retreat to a military fortress as Typhus's warband made planetfall, and managed to hold out for nearly a week, before desperation forced him to lead his force into a suicide charge which was quickly defeated, marking the death of the last Imperial presence on the planet.[1][2]
