Tanis is a forbidden Dead World of the Calixis Sector.[1]

Tanis was a thriving Hive World, when it was visited by a unexplained phenomena in the shape of the baleful Tyrant Star, whose passage brought destruction, madness and death to Tanis. Within a period of weeks, the Tanis System was ravaged, resulting in over two billion dead or missing.[1]

The Tanis incident was covered up by the Inquisition and declared a forbidden subject on pain of death. Civil data was later adjusted, so that Tanis never existed in the public record. This event would contribute to the formation of the current incarnation of the Tyrantine Cabal, who are charged with investigating and taking whatever action is necessary to combat the Tyrant Star.[1]
