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.
