Quintus is a desolate world of the Imperium, located south of Chogoris[Needs Citation]

The planet is one of the Imperium's chief bulwarks against Ork warbands which emerge from the Jagal Stars of the galactic southeast.[1][2b][2f] It is most notable for being the location of the final battle of the Hunt for Voldorius.[1][2g]


History

At some point, the Quintus System was mostly cut off from the larger Imperium by a Warp Storm codified as Argenta.[2a][2b] While Quintus was isolated and weakened, the Daemon Prince Kernax Voldorius managed to conquer most of the planet after its PDF was corrupted by Alpha Legion forces.[1][2a] After the death of Voldorius, the planet returned to the Imperium's fold.[1]

Geography

Quintus is a mostly barren world, considered unremarkable in terms of its actual geography - the planet's value to the Imperium derives more from its strategic galactic position rather than what is actually on it.[2b][2d]

Relatively little of the planet's surface is capable of sustaining human life without assistance.[2d] Parts of the planet are designated as agri-zones, where grox are herded for food.[2b]

Known Locations

Other Planetary Information

Quintus possesses a single moon, which is green in colour.[2c][2d]
