History

In 023996.M41 it fell under the threat of Waaagh! Garaghak and was besieged by a combined Ork force of Skalk Bluetoof's Death Skulls and various Goff warbands, spearheaded by Buzzgob's Dreadheadz. Defended by Frateris Militia, thousands of cultists of Red Redemption and Sisters of Battle of the Order of the Black Selpulchre[1][2] and Order of the Argent Shroud[3] it eventually fell in 866996.M41 due to the lack of Imperial reinforcements after the fall of Forsarr and was immediatly claimed by Garaghak himself. In 476998.M41 , under pressure from Ecclesiarchy the 73rd Harakoni Warhawks were deployed on Magdelene IX in a desperate planetfall which predictably failed with heavy losses. Magdelene IX remains in Ork hands and in 995999.M41 Orks of Waaagh! Garaghak are mustering on the planet to continue their war against the Imperium.[1][2]

Quotes

Most benevolent Lord of the Administratum I beseech thee... for over seventy years the Emperor's divine rule over the Forsarr Sector of Segmentum Tempestus has been threatened and harassed by a growing Ork menace - the Arch-Killa Garaghak, name him not, the cruellest of foes, may his name be forever cursed.

Even now, these unholy xenos sit upon the Cardinate throne of the holy shrine of Magdelene IX, blaspheming His name with their foul presence. As I write, Ork foot solgiers are barracked in a ruins of our once glorious hive cities. Our faithful citizens are enslaved to his alien will.

How long we must endure these torments? How many more worlds must fall before this green-fiend's soldiery? How many loyal citizens must be sacrificed before the enemy's cruel reign is halted?

Send us stoic soldiers of Imperial Guard. Send us legions of faithful Adeptus Sororitas. Send us your most revered Adeptus Astartes. Send us your aid... for the Emperor's name, preserve us, your most faithful servants.

-Lord-Confessor Mytanar Javun - Petition to the Master of Administratum - 994999.M41[1]
