The Loki Sector is a region of Imperial space that borders the Segmentum Ultima and the Segmentum Tempestus.

Notable WorldsEdit

  • Badlanding - This Imperial Agri-World is located in Segmentum Ultima. It was invaded and captured by Ork Warboss Uzrog, under the orders of Snagrod, the Arch-arsonist of Charadon in 989.M41.
  • Rynn's World - Rynn's World is an Imperial Agri-World that is also the homeworld of the Crimson Fists Space Marines Chapter. It and the Rynnstar System of which it is a part were both named for the Imperial Reclamator Saldano Malverro Rynn who first led Imperial colonists to the system, reclaimed Rynnsworld for Mankind and settled it as another Imperial Agri-World. The planet is sparsely populated, mountainous, and devoted to intensive agriculture. Due to its distance from other Imperial worlds and its proximity to Ork-controlled space, it is somewhat isolated from the rest of Imperium, with the closest neighbouring human planet being Badlanding. The Crimson Fists' Fortress-Monastery Arx Tyrannus has stood on Rynn's World for over a thousand years since their great Battle-Barge Rutilus Tyrannus was dismantled to build it after the Crimson Fists were granted Rynn's World as their fief and ceased being a Fleet-based Chapter in 740.M40. Though serving as the Chapter's homeworld, Rynn's World is not owned as a Chapter fief by the Crimson Fists, and has its own Planetary Governor. Before a devastating invasion by Orks, the planet was protected by a formidable missile defence system, designed to deter invaders and a relatively skilled Planetary Defence Force called the Rynnsguard. Unfortunately, Rynn's World is not so far from the Ork Empire of Charadon. As the Ork empire grew, Rynn's World began to present a tempting target to Charadon's ruler, Snagrod the Arch-Arsonist. The planet was finally invaded in 989.M41 by Charadonian Orks under the orders of Snagrod. In a freak accident, the Crimson Fists' fortress-monastery was destroyed in the initial invasion by one of the Chapter's own defence missiles that went rogue and the Chapter was all but wiped out. Without the protection of the Crimson Fists, the humans of Rynn's World were quickly slain, and their settlements, with the exception of New Rynn City, the planet's capital, were completely overrun. Rynn's World was eventually liberated by the Imperium following the arrival of an Imperial Reclamation Fleet in 991.M41, although it took years of fighting to reconquer both Rynn's World and the other worlds in the Loki Sector under Ork dominion.
