|Class:||Knight World/Forge World|
The system’s industrial heart is protected by a ring of three Knight worlds in close proximity – Stryken II, IV and V – and each is home to several Knightly houses. These verdant planets were once maiden worlds of the Eldar. The ancient tribes of Exodites that once dwelt there, herding the many different species of giant reptiles and bipedal carnivores, were ruthlessly driven from these worlds by the knightly houses that were established shortly after Mankind’s arrival.
With the combined might of no less than eleven knightly houses to call upon, including such luminaries as Houses Arokon and Dorath, the forge world of Stryken Primus has no Titan Legion stationed upon its surface. The planet instead focuses on supplying munitions in enormous quantities for the Imperial forces defending the Cadian Gate. A standing guard of Knights – the Order of Iron – is always present on the surface of the forge world to ensure its protection. Drawn from amongst the greatest and most capable Nobles from each House, competition to be accepted into the Order of Iron is fierce, and it is considered a great honour to join their ranks. The head of the Order is given the honorific title of Forge Warden, and leads the Knights in battle as if he were a ruler of his own house.[Needs Citation]
