History & Background (Dossier)
In -982 the Darrians, who did not usually plant colonies that far away from Darrian, colonized it. The Darrians named the world Dand Daryene, or "New Home". Within a generation is was discovered that some unidentified aspect of the planet, presumably biological in nature, caused sterility in all males born there. The settlement was accordingly abandoned in -941. The Darrians left a group of scientists to discover the cause, but they were cut off in the Maghiz and all knowledge of the settlement and the base was lost.
The Sacnoth Dominate named the world Hoding and established a colony there in -154. They too discovered the problem and abandoned the world again in -118. The Dominate planned to send scientists to study the problem, but the War of the First Rebellion intervened. 
In 481 a group of Vargr exiles from Gvurrdon found the empty world and settled there, likewise unaware of the reason why it was empty. In 506 a team of researchers finally put together all the facts and the Vargr were resettled on Spirelle.
It is likely that whatever causes the problem will not affect beings who do not belong to Sphere Terra but the risk that it might kept anyone from taking the chance while there were still alternate worlds to settle.
After the Imperium declared the subsector an Imperial district in 610, Dawnworld came under its protection. The world was then declared off limit to any settlers, regardless of species, until the problem had been identified and solved. Visits to the world do not appear to cause any damage, so it has not been interdicted.
The situation is further complicated by Sword Worlder claims to the planet. Between 600 and 1100, several attempts have been made by both Sword Worlder and Imperial scientists to solve the mystery, but they have all ended in failure, most likely because they were all terminated prematurely due to political pressure.
