Rapture is a Dead World of the Imperium — formerly a Knight World — located in the Reductus Sector[1b] of the Segmentum Tempestus.[1a]

History

Once considered a paradise planet, the Knight World of Rapture was the crowning jewel of the Reductus Sector. The world was ruled by the Knightly house Aramos from their stronghold, the Auric Keep; the ancestors of the house having settled the world in M26. However, the planet was devastated by a splinter fleet of Hive Fleet Leviathan, leaving it an almost-lifeless shell. To this day, the Aramos Knights venture from their last refuge to scour the world of any remaining Tyranid organisms left behind by the assault.[1b]
