Solemnace is a Necron Tomb World located in the Eastern Fringe.[1]


Solemnace is ruled by the Trazyn the Infinite, an Overlord of the Nihilakh Dynasty[3] and its vaults are crowded with some of the greatest artifacts and technological wonders in the galaxy.[1]

The planet itself is an artificial construct, essentially a planet-sized Dyson Sphere whose outer shell consists of untold amounts of nano-machines. A series of "mirrors" exist above the planet which collect Solemnace's excess energy and redirect it back to form an artificial sun and atmosphere. Beneath the outer nano-shell are vast prismatic galleries, where Trazyn's many collections exist in suspended animation.[4]

Trazyn's Chief Cryptek and the curator of the Solemnace collection is known as Sannet.[6]


Solemmnace is thought to long predate Humanity's first foray into the stars.[4]

Later, Fabius Bile and affiliated forces arrived on the world in search of long-lost Emperor's Children Gene-Seed. Fabius' clone of Fulgrim was traded to Trazyn in exchange for the gene stock.[4a] During the 13th Black Crusade, Warp disturbances created instability across Solemnace and forced Trazyn to come to the aid of the Imperium.[5]

In M41, it lay in the path of two minor tendrils of Hive Fleet Behemoth. The tendrils made course corrections to deliberately avoid Solemnace and eventually lapsed into hibernation after finding themselves unable to pinpoint any nutrient-rich prey worlds.[2]
