Anbus - fanart

IV Anbus was originally the home of Socratic Christianity in the collapsing Old Empire in the 8th century BG, and the homeworld of Tibana. However, this religion was supplanted over the next six hundred years as the planet became the spiritual capital of Buddislam, specifically for the Zenshiites. Its main city was Darits.

During the Butlerian Jihad, when Omnius decided to attack the Unallied Planets before the final strike against the League of Nobles, thinking machine forces were detected at the Unallied Planet in 177 BG by the Jihadis and they moved to protect against the assault, resulting in the Battle for IV Anbus. Since the inhabitants were reluctant to help, Primero Xavier Harkonnen was forced to repel the machines by destroying the dam. A huge mass of water engulfed the machines as well as part of the capital along with holy relics and people who refused to leave.
