Yvaigne was first settled in the early years of the 40th Millennium, after a Mechanicus Calixis Explorator vessel detected significant deposits of promethium on the planet. After scouting several possible landing sites one, close to the tropical latitudes, was chosen that was next to a particularly large reservoir as well as being close to an open plain that could be used as a spaceport. It was at this location that Kasthor was founded.

The first well-heads and refineries were operating before construction on the city itself had fully begun, allowing ships bringing new settlers and workers to the planet to leave with cargo bays full of refined fuel. New refineries were built as the population swelled, culminating in the vast Sokorov complex that can be seen today from the roofs of Kasthor, dominating the southern skyline. The first refinery complex, by contrast, was abandoned when Sokorov was completed due to a lack of available workers following the War of Three Mountains (ref. 102.M40/W3M – #RESTRICTED#).

The planet supports three other major refinery-cities and innumerable smaller cities & towns that provide the food needed to keep the world fed. These are linked by a network of massive railways, created to keep the promethium flowing from the refineries to the spaceport where it is stored in vast tanks while waiting for the tithe ships to arrive. These trains, which can take over an hour to pass by a single point, also carry other freight goods and thousands of passengers on the journeys that can take three local days to complete.

Yvaigne has two moons, Tristran and Ysold. The inner moon is has been found to support deposits of rare crystals and supports a thriving mining town beneath a sprawling dome, while the outer acts as a resupply base for the Imperial Navy during their infrequent visits to the system.
