Orar is a Hive World in the Gothic Sector. The planet shares a name with the Space Marine chapter the Sons of Orar and their spiritual patriarch Orar, though the history of the chapter's founding is lost to Imperial records.

It was the site of an early victory by the Imperium against the Chaos fleets, reversing a string of victorious first strike raids, during the Gothic War. An Imperial battlegroup, led by Captain Compel Bast aboard the Imperious, stationed at Orar, defended against a Chaos warfleet led by Warmaster Malefica Arkham on the Deathbane. The Chaos fleet was pursued out of the system and only a handful of Chaos escorts escaped without damage.[1]

Later in the war, Captain Leoten Semper of the Lord Solar Macharius was assigned to protect convoys travelling from Bhein Morr to Orar, a dangerous route often attacked by pirate "Wolf Packs".[2]
