Duke Tannis Gadrin
Leader of Rebel forces on Bazrin
Slightly less than year after the Ork invasion of Bazrin, Duke Gadrin declared independance from the Imperium and claimed leadership of the planet. Planetary armies and militias spread around Bazrin pledged allegiance to Duke Gadrin, and soon after began defeating the orks in several battles, halting their advance in some areas. This led many to speculate Duke Gadrin was getting outside help, probably from the Ruinous Powers, but this have never been proven. When the Astra Millitarium (Imperial Guard) arrived a year later, they immediately blasted and bombed Duke Gadrin’s forces all over the planet, forcing them to abandon their battle lines and hide among the civilian populace and dispersing throughout the planet. The rebels had little to defend against the Astra Millitarium’s air power and were driven back with minimal casualties from the Imperial Guard. Duke Gadrin ruled part of the Plateau region and operated from there during the war, though he quickly disappeered when the Astra Millitarium attacked and his current whereabouts are unknown.
