The fourteenth battle of Regadnîn was one of the hundreds of battles that made-up the seven thousand year Creation War. It took place on a world then designated Sphere 411. This world, better known today as Bal-Kriav, was named after the hero that died in this battle.
Fourteen battles had been named for the area Regadnîn. The primordials repetitively attacked this area. This came from a vulnerability in the The Weave. Such areas, when exploited, give way to rifts. Like in battles before, the primordials used null mines, creating bridges between their Sea of Entropy and the war-torn wastes of Regadnîn.
- Cas Zarugad, of the Portal Sentinels, from his book Lore of Rifts - "The Regadnîn Sore"
This battle is best remembered for a fight that occurred on Irrai's ramparts. The Covenant's Supreme Commander went toe-to-toe with a mighty primordial named Nakh-Zennîm. This Covenant enemy was faced by Supreme Commander Bal-Kriav, who out of foolhardiness, or perhaps to inspire his troops with a heroic battle, faced the spider-like monstrosity alone. Their fight brought a pause in the fighting around them. No single Covenant hero was a match for Nakh-Zennîm. The death of Bal-Kriav had its desired effect. Inspired, the primordials were driven back to Regadnîn, retreating headlong to their invasion rifts.
