Sycorax is a Death World of the Imperium located in the Ultima Segmentum.[1]


Sycorax is a Death World wracked by psychic storms. Psykers exposed to these conditions will attract the fierce storms unless they learn to shield themselves with their own psychic ability. The Adeptus Astra Telepathica maintain a training facility on Sycorax in order to train their adepts in the extreme environment it offers.[1]

During the Indomitus Crusade Sycorax found itself assailed by Necrons which include a shard of the Nightbringer and large amounts of Flayed Ones. The planet's populace was captured and subjected to a series of grizzly experiments and ritual sacrifices.[2] With the aid of Uriel Ventris and his 4th Company Ultramarines forces as well as Imperial Guard, Lucius Mechanicum, and Legio Astorum Titans the Imperial forces were able to drive the Necrons off the world.[2a]
