History and Background[edit]

The Vargr are truly free of local human domination - while still under the sway of the Imperium|.

This is only one of two Vargr-majority worlds in the Imperial Empty Quarter. While there are larger numbers of Vargr on other Imperial worlds in the Six Subsectors, this is the only Imperial world in the sector where the Vargr, alone, call the shots.

The flag of Agnakhong, the only independent Vargr world within the Imperial Empty Quarter. It’s quite patriotic: with the assistance of the Archduke of Antares, permission was gained to use the Imperial Sunburst on a local flag, with the six stars representing the six Domains of the Imperium. And it is quietly detested and mocked by the highly anti-Vargr inhabitants of the Imperial Empty Quarter, due both to its inescapable ties to the Imperium, and the shape of the pennant that directly points to the Rukadukaz Republic.

Still, despite the hostility, the flag serves its purpose: “We are loyal Vargr citizens of the Imperium. Touch us, and face the wrath of the Emperor.” However much the local inhabitants are loathed, they are left in peace by the humans of the Six Subsectors. They may despise the Vargr, but they fear - and respect - Imperial Authority more.

Agnakhong has been described as one of the most unpleasant places in the galaxy.

  • There is a specialist bacteria here which breaks down organics very quickly and efficiently and thus producing a large amount of products which are invaluable in industry.
  • This is also highly dangerous as the airborne bacteria will breakdown living tissue with equal efficiency.
  • Also, no matter how efficient the atmospheric processors cannot tend to get the horrid smell of rotting matter out of the air.

Agnakhong is notable as the only Vargr-dominant world within the Imperial Empty Quarter.
