Charadon is the capital world of an Ork pocket empire, the Ork Empire of Charadon, situated in the Imperium's Segmentum Ultima. Charadon is one of many small, independent and mutually hostile Ork domains scattered across the galaxy. It is ruled by the tyrannical Ork Warlord Snagrod, the current ruling Arch-Arsonist of Charadon, a particularly vicious and sadistic leader of a species noted for its generally vicious and sadistic tendencies.
Snagrod's bloody wars of conquest have transformed Charadon into the most powerful and organised state within the anarchic confines of Ork space. Charadon is located near the Imperial world of Badlanding and through Warp-travel is only a few solar weeks away from Rynn's World, the homeworld of the Crimson Fists Chapter of Space Marines, which Snagrod's WAAAGH! assaulted in 989.M41.
