House Arokon is a Loyalist Imperial Knight house of the Questor Imperialis that serves the Imperium directly.

House Arokon hails from the Styken System far to the galactic northwest in the Segmentum Obscurus.

Along with ten other knightly houses to call upon, House Arokon provides a standing guard -- known as the Order of Iron -- upon the surface of the principal planet, the Forge World of Stryken Primus, to ensure this vital world's protection.

House History

Situated far in the galactic northwest, the Stryken System's principal planet is the smoke-wreathed Forge World of Stryken Primus. The system's industrial heart is protected by a ring of three Knight Worlds in close proximity -- Stryken II, IV and V -- and each is home to several knightly houses.

These verdant planets were once Maiden Worlds of the Aeldari. The ancient tribes of Exodites that once dwelt there, herding the many different species of giant reptiles and bipedal carnivores, were ruthlessly driven from these worlds by the knightly houses that were established shortly after Mankind's arrival.

With the combined might of no less than eleven knightly houses to call upon, including such luminaries as Houses Arokon and Dorath, the Forge World of Stryken Primus has no Titan Legion stationed upon its surface. The planet instead focuses on supplying munitions in enormous quantities for the Imperial forces defending the Cadian Gate.

A standing guard of Knights -- the "Order of Iron" -- is always present on the surface of the Forge World to ensure its protection. Drawn from amongst the greatest and most capable Nobles from each House, competition to be accepted into the Order of Iron is fierce, and it is considered a great honour to join their ranks.

The head of the Order of Iron is given the honorific title of "forge warden," and leads the Knights in battle as if he were a ruler of his own knightly house.
