(Uncanny X-Men I#265 - BTS) - The P!ndyr, a race that had gained the reputation of breeding the best natural warriors in known space, was ruled by their champion on their homeworld of Epsilon Seikhoshka IX.

(Uncanny X-Men#276/278 (fb) - BTS) - A group of genetically-bred Skrulls called Warskrulls began infiltrating Shi'ar culture. The Warskrulls began committing murders and even genocide upon various Shi'ar affiliated races, such as the P!ndyr, in the name of the Shi'ar Empire. One Warskrull replaced the Imperial Consort, Professor X, called himself Warlord, and took mental control over Lilandra, the Majestrix of the Shi'ar.

(Uncanny X-Men I#265 - BTS) - A battle was set up between the P!ndyr Champion and "Professor X" to determine if the P!ndyr fell under the Shi'ar's control.

(Uncanny X-Men I#265) - The Champion was defeated in combat by a member of the Host (Warskrulls) posing as Charles Xavier. Due to their Champion's loss the P!ndyr fell under Shi'ar control.

(Uncanny X-Men I#276 (fb) - BTS) - Following their Champion's defeat nearly all P!ndyr were slain by their conquerors.

(Uncanny X-Men I#276) - On Epsilon Seikosha IX, the homeworld of the P!ndyr, Deathbird, Lila Cheney, and a group of X-Men fought a deadly battle against the Warskrulls.

(Uncanny X-Men I#277) - The X-Men crashed on the P!ndyr's homeworld with the Starjammer, incidentally slaying a few of the last remaining P!ndyr on the surface.

Quotes from Uncanny X-Men I#276:

"On this planet... every living P!ndyr, from the most ancient to those barely born. Slaughtered!"

"Epsilon Seikosha IX: Hard-scrabble of a planet, all harshly dynamic verticals, mountains thrusting one way, abyssal canyons plunging the other. Nothing soft or gentle about the world, or the race that lived here. Which is perhaps what made the P!ndyr among the most renowned and feared warriors in the Shi'ar Imperium."
