Sarosh was an advanced human planet that had managed to survive the long isolation of the Old Night with much of their technology and society intact.[1a]


To the Dark Angels it was known as Four Three. Originally the government of Sarosh dealt with the White Scars, before it was transferred over to the Dark Angels. It saw compliance from the Twenty-Second chapter of the Dark Angels as well as the 4th Imperial Expedition Fleet.[1a]

Originally it seemed that Sarosh embraced the Imperial Truth, however little was accomplished to bring the planet into compliance.[1b] The Sarosi government blamed the delays upon a large bureaucratic system. It was later found that the Sarosi in fact had been deceiving the Imperial forces, upon which they attempted to assassinate the Imperial delegates, including the Primarch Lion El'Jonson, with an atomic warhead.[1c] The planet had a Chaos cult that attempted to summon a daemonic being into realspace, but was stopped by the efforts of the Dark Angels. Efforts of Imperial Army units from nearby Expedition Fleets as well as the titans of the Fire Wasps crushed the last of the rebellion.[1d]
