Voltoris is a Knight World of the Imperium, home to the knightly House Terryn.[1a]


According to Imperial legend, the rediscovery of Voltoris was hailed by the Emperor as his dream manifest, for the planet's picturesque cities and affluent people were identical to that which he envisioned for Mankind. Before its reunion with Terra, it is said that the Scions of Terryn scoured Voltoris of all dangers, driving the great beasts that once prowled its surfaces into the recesses of the world. Once their planet was claimed, they were able to largely endure the Age of Strife unharmed. For three millennia they knew no war until the coming of the Imperium.[3]

Today, the Knights of Voltoris that dwell there are nonetheless amongst the most warlike of their kind. These Knights commonly travel across the galaxy to defend the Imperium in far-flung campaigns, in a bid to find foes worthy of their skills. In more recent centuries, however, the Knights of House Terryn have been forced to fight ever closer to home. The dual threats posed by Hive Fleet Leviathan and the rapidly expanding T'au Empire ensure that Terryn’s Knights remain on a constant war footing, lest Voltoris itself be threatened.[1a]


After the Battle of Mu'gulath Bay, the Imperium would use Voltoris as the staging area for their successful ambush against the Tau.[2]


Voltoris is a tranquil world. Vast green oceans surround tropical islands the size of continents, some of which sport mighty jungles.[1a]
