History

Pre-Compliance

Along with Uruq, Laigach was one of the last planets in the system to be colonised and this only came about because the Kazitian Synod had the ability genetically alter a custom bred range of agricultural seeds which would grow in the unusual chemical make up of the planets soil and waterways. Previously deemed as incapable of bring a self a sufficient colony by the Knight Houses, the planet lacked any substantial natural minerals, ores or other such resources and so was never considered for any colonisation attempts.

Realising that the system would require significant food resources to allow it to grow and remain independent of the need to import food stuffs, the Synod spent considerable time in creating suitable crops which could survive on Laigach even before they had formed the Conclave. Once the Knight Worlds had yielded, hundreds of dispersal ships entered planets atmosphere and started seeding the world for future farming; within only a dozen years the planet was transformed from an infertile world to the bread basket of the System.


Compliance

Being a highly productive agri world capable of supporting nearly eight times the systems current population, Laigach was always going to be a high priority for the Imperium and the Martian delegation conducting the Compliance negotiations new this and leveraged the fact. Coupled with the fact that the worlds single satellite, the moon Larza, also boasted a thin atmosphere and newly discovered mining resources, it quickly became the pivotal key to the talks.

In the end though, the Synod appeared to have certainly pushed that value to the upper limits. With only Laigach, its moon and the desolate Hive world of Uruq coming under direct Imperial control the majority of the system bent its knee to Mars, certainly a convenient outcome for the Martian delegation as well. One caveat however was the requirement for the Synod to assist in the construction of vast fortifications and habitat hives on the moon Larza which was converted into the seat of the Imperial Governorship, the most prestigious option out of a moon, a rural stinking agricultural world and a rotting toxic Hive planet.

Post Compliance

Even before the shocking actions of Istvaan filtered through to the Australis Ultima Sector, the situation in the Oteal System had degenerated to dangerous levels. Rumours of military build ups on the Kazitian loyal planets persisted along with the myth that Dur-Kazit was being secretly rebuilt, however without any evidence the systems Governor could take no direct action against the planets as they were sworn to the Red Planet and owed him no allegiance.

With the onset of civil war and the Fabricator General openly siding with Horus, the Kazitian Synod seized the opportunity and declared independence of the Imperium, reforming the Baylonian Conclave and began mobilising its military. Desperately outgunned the Governor immediately issued a recall to all Imperial forces in the System and requested aid form the Sub-Sector Governor in Centrumeh Gate.

Before the Kazitian forces were able to fully muster, a small armada translated into the system, but not in response to the Governor’s call for aid. It was a splinter element of a fleet loyal to the Warmaster on its way to the Trugoy System to prosecute another war of eradication against the Loyalists. Unsure of the situation and unwilling to engage two potential enemies the Kazitian navy maintained a defensive posture while attempts to communicate with the new player were sent.

Despairing at now having to face two potential hostile forces, the Imperial presence in the system began to prepare for the worst and readied themselves for invasion. Hope blossomed momentarily when a signal from the VIIth was received, confirming that they were en route and less than two days out, this message however was followed quickly by the Sub-Sector wide broadcast from the Imperium, instructing all Loyal fleets to the Trugoy System.
