The planet Anovan is one of high mountains and vast plains of purple sand; turquoise seas but also lakes of acid, and little life. The denizens are known for their ferocity in battle, and often irrational sense of honour; Anovans are blunt, honest and to the point. before battle these semi-savage warriors drink from pools of dessert water, so heavily saturated with salts and deposits of metal that it would drive lesser men insane. The Anovan's however settle for a strange sheen of purple that coats their ebony skin, but bring madness to the battlefield. a custom among Anovans to settle disputes of honour is the engage in 'sky duels' where both combatants take to the skies in hide seqn gliders and viscous blades or even bows and arrows, and the victor is the first to cast his opponent to the ground. when the imperium reconquered Anovan it quickly found a use for the veterans of sky warfare, and though crude they learnt the use of technology quickly, and will employ any weapon given to them. they are deployed as shock troops, plummeting from the sky as glorious dark comets to cause as much disruption as possible. they have particular rivalry with ork storm boys, who they see as the ultimate rivals for the sky, but are eager to match blades with anyone who would dishonour them!
